This month i have played more than twenty of these games in the summer splash out on 888 and i won a prize once in witch the firs 100 were winnings.

Now i have 19 tickets in the PokerStars promotion and with the pay out structure which i enclose a copy i do not have much expectation of winning to much money.

I would like your comments on this. Confused Confused

yes , if you complete a puzzle piece and got a ticket , it is just like a slap in the face
you need to finish in the top 8000 with 40 thousands + tournament , and if you did manage to get in the cash , you most likely gonna get 1$ or 2$ .. any decent prize would come in top 63
and it is like 0.1% chance Shock
don't ever expect pokerstars just wanna give free money .. there is always a catch

lol, same as xgcsnippy, but I wouldn't mind a free 2k Big Smile
I won money doing the puzzles anyways and cashed it out so I can only win more Smile

There has to be 20k losers so someone can win that 2k lol. But hey it's free money and it's still better than 1 in a billion.

Good luck to you mobsters

With a $20000 prize pool for about 40000 players, the expected value of a ticket is $0.50.

So with 19 tickets your EV is $9.50; that's okay is it not?

The chance that you won't get anything is, assuming 40000 players, and 8192 places paid:

(31808/40000)^19 = 1.3% so you'd have to be pretty unlucky to not win anything with your 19 tickets...
Hope this makes you feel better... Blink

I got 7 tickets, but won $5 twice, so I'm already happy I played (investment was 80 * $0.02 (900 SNG), and 1 * $0.10 (360 SNG) = $1.70, and don't remember exactly what I won, I think about $0.90 or so). I think I'll play the JJ ones too maybe...

pay structure is shtty as hell... they couldnt make worst pay structure... for second place you got nearly 200$ but for first you got 10x more... 2k$... But hey its a free money, and first of all you went tru 27 puzzle pieces that were just like all in shootouts, with chance to win $... so tu sum all thing up... paystructure is shtty, but free money is free, so its all good Big Smile

I'd not have much expectation of winning much money on bingo, so that is my opinion too.

I think I have had the same results as you in the 888 Splash promo regarding the all in tourneys,I have come close a couple of times but I think all I have won is the free bets.....and I really wanted an 888 beach towel. Smile
Expect nothing and you can never lose.....there will be someone with an extra $2k at the end of the tourney......my money is on Demo. Smile

I have 18 tickets to these tournaments and really do not have too many expectations of winning something
I always thought that those tournaments are rigged and the best prizes are being taken which deposited more
I would like to get lucky one day, so beginning to think a little more in PokerStars Thumbs Down

I have around the same amount of tickets and if i am lucky, i wouldn't mind at least $5 for my new challenge i might start this month for myself.

I was thinking of doing a 100 event challenge where all i do is enter the $0.11 tounries, either the $400 gtd ones or the wcoop ones.

I haven't made up my mind which i will be trying for, but it's gonna be anything worth $0.11 for tournies.

I lost a lot of my math. but my 19 tickets are not for one tournament but 19 tournaments so my ticket have a value of $0.50 for each and i i do not understand your calculation for the 1.3%.

are you telling me that i have 1.3% chance of winning $1.00 total or in each of them. Question Question
