Another 25% of the prizepool will go towards the Jackpot Freebuy Tournament, details of which will be announced at your poker school on December 1st. Everyone who has played the game up until the Jackpot was won will then receive an email with details on how to find their ticket and register for the tournament.

The remaining 50% of the Jackpot goes back into the pot making the prizepool total for the next jackpot already a whopping $7,292.00. Remember that the Jackpot can hit at any time so to increase your chances of winning play every day. It's completely free to play so you've nothing to lose by having a go!

Progressive Jackpot FAQ

      Q) If I have never made a deposit on PokerStars can I win the Progressive Jackpot?

      A) Unfortunately no. Progressive Jackpot is only open to players who have made a deposit on PokerStars. You can, however, still win all other prizes, plus the Jackpot Freebuy Tournament.

      Q) If I win the jackpot when will the Prize be awarded?

      A) Once you have won the Progressive Jackpot, we will first review your account via PokerStars Security, and it should take no more than 48 hours to receive your prize. You will be contacted via the email registered on your PokerStars account.

      Q) Why is the Jackpot only 25% of the total?

      A) As a bonus we wanted the prizes to be fair for everyone: 25% goes to the winner, 50% towards the next jackpot in order to keep it topped up, and 25% goes towards the Jackpot Freebuy Tournament. All of your fellow Poker School friends will be happy you've unlocked the tournament for them, and you might even win that too!

      Q) How is the Jackpot winner chosen?

      A) The jackpot winner is chosen randomly as with our all prizes within the Scratch and Match game. The good news is, it's free to play and you can play every day.

      Q) How does the Progressive Jackpot increase?
      A) Every time a player makes a first time deposit using the Scratch Bonus plugin, $5 will be added to the Progressive Jackpot. The more players who use the Bonus, the higher the Jackpot will grow.
