Key Points to Remember For the Leaderboard Races:

  • Points are awarded once the player is eliminated from the tournament.
  • Players can check the standings by opening the ‘Leaderboards’ window after logging in.
  • Bonuses will be credited within 48 hours from the end of each week.
  • Players with the same score will be ranked based on who reached the score from first to last.

 

Ticket Machine

Another promotion making a comeback is the Ticket Machine. The promotion had previously run alongside the 2021 INCOOP, wherein players received several opportunities to claim extra tickets throughout the series. This time around, the promotion will award players entries to a weekly draw when they play regular MTTs. Only players who opt-in to the Ticket Machine can participate in this promotion. Any tournaments played before opting in will not be counted towards this promotion.

With over ₹40 Lakhs in MTT tickets up for grabs, Ticket Machine entries are earned by playing regular tournaments between October 18 to December 19, between 12 AM and 11:59 PM. They are awarded based on the tournament’s buy-in:

> Low draw: One entry for buy-ins between ₹175 and ₹770, or two entries for buy-ins between ₹990 and ₹1,649

> High draw: One entry for ₹1,650 buy-ins and above

Players will receive entry/entries once they’ve been eliminated from an eligible tournament or after they’ve finished in the top places. The Ticket Machine will draw winners weekly (every Monday) at 9:35 AM, after which players will receive a notification with the outcome.

Only regular guaranteed tournaments count towards this offer. Satellites are not valid, nor are any other tournament formats, such as Spin & Go and Sit & Go tournaments.

 

Ticket Challenge

Launched in August, the Ticket Challenge is back. This exciting promotion gives players a chance to select from three different challenges to earn rewards.

All players have to do is ‘Opt-in’ by hitting the ‘Start’ button on the ‘Challenges‘ window. After that, players can follow their progress in the same window.

The promotion will run on a bi-weekly basis:

> Period 1 – October 18-31

> Period 2 – November 1-14

> Period 3 – November 29-December 12

> Period 4 – December 13-26

The Challenges will be updated every two weeks and run from Monday (12 AM) to Sunday (11:59 PM).

Challenge 1: Earn 42,000 Redemption Points. Get a ₹7,700 Bounty Builder Highroller + ₹7,700 Highroller ticket each.

Challenge 2: Earn 45,000 Redemption Points. Get a ₹5,500 Sunday Special + ₹11,000 Sunday Highroller ticket each.

Challenge 3: Earn 20,000 Redemption Points. Get a ₹2,750 Night on Stars + ₹1,950 Eliminator ticket each.

Players will earn 1 redemption point for every ₹1 they pay in rake or tournament fees. Once the Chest has been opened, players can find their tickets by going to ‘My Rewards’ and selecting ‘Tournament Tickets.’ Players will be eligible to receive their tournament ticket rewards only after meeting the redemption points requirement.

NOTE: Any additional tickets won will expire within 30 days from the date of issue. Tickets from this promotion are non-refundable, non-transferable, and cannot be converted into cash.
