  • PokerStars Football Fever - Official Discussion

    Hi everyone! I decided to open this post for the discussion about the Football fever promotion and to speak about football! umbup: Do begin the discussion, do you plan to take your chance on the Football Fever? What is your favorite team and your prediction for the Football Mondial? For my part, I check the Challenges, and I plan to try myself on 25 out of 35 chalenges! Also, I have the Idea to make a list of all the top player in the All-In tournament! That's a lucky tournament but that could be cool to see who have the more luck with them! Just post you position and if you won money, make us now! I'll update this thread daily! Cheers, Spy474 2014 Football Mondial - Best Position **If it's the wrong section, feel free to move it!**

    Football fever promo.

    Hi!
    I hope I'm in the right place to post this question.

    In the football fever daily challenges, sometimes you have to play a real money tourney as a challenge. Are the pso2014 series of poker cash tourneys eligible or, do we have to play an actual Pokerstars cash tourney for the daily challenge to be complete?
    And I'm guessing a 50cent tourney is as good as a 50$ tourney or, does the buy-in matter?

    Thanx guys!

      Hello, No, the PSO games are not part of the Football Fever promotion. Here's a link that will explain the challenges: http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/prom...ly-challenges/ Cheers, Raiser umbup: ***Moved***

        If you know anything about football or have watched a sports broadcast in the past six months, you know that we're about to enter football's biggest time. For the next several weeks, football fans' eyes will be glued to the broadcasts from South America. Now, PokerStars is getting in on the act with a little something called Football Fever.
        From now until July 13, PokerStars' Football Fever will offer Daily Challenges, a Mission Week, and a $1 million guaranteed phase tourney.
        Ready to learn more? Keep reading below.

        DAILY CHALLENGES
        Every day at midnight ET, a new challenge will start. If you complete the challenge, you will get a tournament ticket you can use to predict the outcome of an upcoming football match. Make the right decision, and you could win money in an All-In Shootout. For more details, see the Football Fever Daily Challenges web page.

        GET YOUR OWN FOOTBALL AVATAR
        There's no reason to go through the next month without supporting your team, right? You can let all your opponents know who you're rooting for by temporarily changing your PokerStars avatar to your favorite team's flag. Find out how by clicking here.

        MISSION WEEK
        Once you have got the hang of the Daily Challenges, you'll be ready for Mission Week, July 7-13. You will be assigned a mission. If you complete it, you could get in on one of three $75,000 All-In Shootouts. Start your planning now by visiting the Football Fever Mission Week page.

        FOOTBALL FEVER PHASE TOURNEY
        Starting today, you will have many chances all day long to play a $27 Phase Tourney. If you make it through Phase 1, your chip stack will carry over to the Football Fever $1 million guaranteed Phase 2 event on July 6th. For full details, head to the Football Fever Phase Tourney page.

        For more information, kick on over to the Football Fever web page.

        Have fun, football fans.

          Another pretty banal and uninteresting promo from Stars.

          Not playing at all right now and this won't entice me to play.

          It was decent the first couple of times but throw something new at us.

            Everyone is entitled to their opinion and it's good that people speak up and say when they don't like something or if they think it's dull.

            I do kinda like this promotion though and I will be trying my best to scoop a share of the $1.7 MILLION that's up for grabs!

              In my point of view, it's just a free 1,7M$ that Pokerstars give us!! It's like giving us a free lottery ticket (Because it's not poker, but lottery here)

              Why not take a chance to win a share of that money! I won,t play out of my bankroll, or even make a deposit if I don't want to, but playing some SNG, Scheduled Tournament and Cash game, why not!!

              Hope that someone from PSO will grab a share of that 1,7M$ and why not the 1000$

                I totally accept that lots of people like it, have no problem with that, but I just wish they would shake things up a bit.

                I know it's probably hard to come up with innovative ideas when it comes to card games but they have lots of money to play with.

                    I'll possibly qualify for some of them inadvertently but it's not going to inspire me to play new games.

                    The promo is +EV, not knocking that, only the repetitiveness.

                        Mate , to be correct it isn't a free 1.7M$ , because the guaranteed 1M$ in the phase tourney will be raised by the players most likely umbup:

                          So,as of right now, aprox. 6800 people chose brazil to win and only aprox. 380 for Croatia to win.

                          So, if Croatia was to surprise brazil and the shootout started right now only 380 people would participate and they would be way up in the money bracket even before the tourney started. I think that's awesome!!!

                          So the goal would be to predict surprise matches and hope they come through for a better chance at some good money. RIGHT?

                          For those who know football a little bit , do you see ANY SURPRISES in the scheduled matches?
                          Can Croatia actually beat Brazil?

                              You I made a mistake. But on the 1,7M, 500k are completely given by Pokerstars for the daily challenges! So that's some really free money! And for Brazil, I think they will have a lot of pressure maybe to much even. So Croatia can beat Brazil. I don't will win the cup, to much pressure. And I'm going with the odds for the winning team, as i don't know a lot of football. We will see if we can win something :P
