This is quoting pokerstars FAQ regarding starcodes mate:

"PokerStars Star Codes:

A Star Code is used as a way for you to opt in for promotions and receive bonuses, tournament tickets, special VIP rewards and more by entering a code in the PokerStars software.
How and where do I get a Star Code?
A Star Code is offered to selected players for exclusive promotions. If you are eligible for a Star Code offer from PokerStars we will get in touch via email, SMS or pop-up message, within the PokerStars software."

nope haven't received the offer...i guess it's only limited to countries like canada, botswana and namibia only...one more exception is demodawggy- stars are on to him...he is winning to much there, that's why the only offer he can get from them is sth like: "deposit up to $100 and we might let you withdraw it. profit cap- 5% of deposit amount" hurry up promotion ends when we have enough for a new yacht...

I did not get such an message but from what i see i guess you need to generate an amount of rake to be eligible.

Since i did not play there for months i guess thats the reason not all got the offer on their email.

pochui,....YOU are one funny dude... Come on over to Canada for a visit!

I emailed PokerStars about this. Here's the reply:

Thank you for your email.

PokerStars is offering a new promotion to a specific group of players. In order to participate, you need to make your next deposit of at least $30 (€24/£21/CAD $30) using the bonus code "REWARD" and you will be credited with a Star Code Reward Entry ticket. Please note that this ticket is only a "dummy" ticket, meaning that you will not be able to use it to register into any event, and it is only in your account to signify your eligibility for a prize.

Once you have received this ticket, please go to the following menu in the PokerStars client: "Account" > "Enter Star Code". A window will appear, where you can enter the Star Code "REWARD", exactly the same as the bonus code. Please be patient as it may take a few minutes to for the star code to be processed in the system.

If you are using a mobile device, you will need to access the "More" menu (for iOS users) or the "Settings & Tools" menu (for Android users) and then click "Account" > "Enter Star Code".

You will receive a client popup message informing you of your award. Players will randomly be awarded with either $5, $10, $20 or $50 instant cash or $5.50, $11, $22 or $55 MTT ticket which can be used to play PokerStars games and tournaments immediately.

Please be reminded that you will have 7 days from the date of being offered the promotion to make a qualifying deposit, after which you have 14 days to enter the star code and receive the reward.

For further information, please visit:

I STILL don't get it,....does ANYONE who deposits using the code: REWARD qualify...?

Thanks lycans


I did NOT get an email inviting me to participate..... but I DID try to deposit using that code and got rejected Confused

I tried to deposit the $30 using the code: REWARD ....then a little box popped up saying:

"The bonus code you entered is not valid, or bonus eligibility criteria such as minimum deposit is not met. Please try again".

WTF...??? The promo implies that anyone depositing $30 can qualify!

It's invitation only.

Let's be fair, who in their right mind is going to invite you or me? Confused

if the promotion says that anyone who deposited 30 or more qualified and ati do not accept it then the best thing you can do is contact support and tell them what happens.

then tell us how it went.

This is what they said:

Thank you for getting back to us.

I am so sorry for our previous response. I regret to inform you that the bonus you are inquiring about is offered by our Marketing Department to specific players only, according to marketing strategies. The details relating to how players are chosen are unknown to our support team so we are not able to comment on how or when players are selected. After reviewing your account however, I can confirm that you have not been selected to take part in this promotion and unfortunately you are not eligible for this offer.

Well, in this case to be fair there's no trapping going on. They never said anywhere ( except for the targeted players) that there was a deposit promo going on.
No one read or misread any fine printing. The only way we knew about this was coz vic75 here got one and told us about it. It's our own fault we are not special Confused Disagree Big Smile
