In these tournaments you actually see of you are lucky or not. You need to win every single game to win first place.. There might be a split somewhere in the way, but it is rare. In other words i never hoped getting anything from these. Microgaming sites used to run often in daily basis, and every day was the same result
Don't expect to much in these all in lotto freerolls. I played today a $1 6 player knockout for a shoot out ticket and finished in first place with all 6 bounties as for the Allin tournaments I only managed to pass the first round once no cashes in 6 attempts.

Are you telling me that you received a ticket for a 6 man KO SNG And in which tab you played it.

I don´t like this shootout promos and tourneys at poker stars, because i´ve won and get so many tickets in the past and won nothing, not only one cent ever...The same with this giveaway shootouts, the payout structure was not so good and there are a lot of players.
Be not upset. It is a lottery and good luck on your party it will be obligatory. I once thought that it isn't real, but it has developed so that from 16 thousand participants in Giveaway: All-ln Shootout has taken the 1st place. So everything is good in its season. Good luck.

I know when poker stars had all in shout out freerolls every day,for few months!every hours you had one tournament and you could won as I remember 1 $ and some tickets I think!just once or twice I won and that was beacuse I play in 3 or 4 in the morning,when are small number of players!trough day when there was 25000 players,you cant win 10,15 hands in row!
All-in shootouts are a total joke. I don't even know why this pokerstars giveaway promotion exists to be honest, there's so many players competing for so little prizes... It makes absolutely no sense.
People will keep being loyal to pokerstars because they offer good services. But to me the rake increase they made this year makes it a lot harder to be ev+. Every 1% of rake they take is part of the profit you don't make... so playing high volume makes even less sense now.
