I made the daily quest 3 times, 3 times and gave me only one fucking dollar prize. Daily quests are a scam more than PokerStars. On average you have to play about 180 hands to complete the 3 steps, you lose no less than 3 hours of your life in that fucking room and if you got a good session never invest less than 10 dollars to complete. Usually always it gives as 1 dollar prize. So the only PokerStars is doing business as usual. PokerStars you you can go to the shell of your mother. I hope one day to melt by bastards.

Yeah I am doing the quests.
I did have one major tilt session and lose £60 but that is now back up to £40 and no reason to think I wont turn it into a profit by the end of January.
It is not a scam by any means. If you are a winning player it supplements your winnings, if you are a losing player it can pay back some losses. But if you are playing the game anyway its just free cash. If you play simply for the challenges and wouldn't normally play the game, well that is your tough luck if you lose.
I would say on average its more like 500 hands and that should take you no longer than 2 hours max single tabling.
I kind of agree with IceQueen but I still think pokerstars could offer more to its loyal players. The way I see it, these challenges are made to make micro players go out of their BR management to complete these challenges. So some of them will lose 1 or 2 BI, go on tilt and have to make another deposit Pokerstars wins.

The way i see it is, that no site cares about your money. The only thing they care is, how to make your money, their money making the necessary moves to achieve that. If they see they are not hitting their goal, they will make adjustments.

I agree totally with Ice Queen Ace, wise person indeed. If you are playing the games anyway, opt in and if you benefit then that is all the better. I think it's pointless playing just to achieve the potential bonus not knowing what it is. Use them to your advantage.

i think from the day it begun, i missed only 2 or 3 days without doing it. First time i got $5, i was uhuu, and i won in the zoom pretty good. Then 2nd day $10, i was like " ok, tomorow it will be $15 for shure". It was $2.5 for the next 3 days, and the another 3 days with $1. Then $1 or $2.5. Today got $5. I still hope for some $1000 or why not $10.000 It says up to $10.000 so.... The good thing with this promotion is, that in the first 5-6 days got Chrome status, and i'm at 100 points away for Silver. If i achive silve, it will be my first time, so i hope i will make it.
Got the first 5 biggest one after completing 23 daily cash game missions same here i am 120 points away from Silver Status only good benefit is a monthly 30K free roll used to be 4 a month Poker Stars punishing high volume players

I was down to last $1 on Stars took $10 from Full Tilt Poker started playing zoom had a very good session back up to 40 the trick with these challenges is to play fixed limit holdem 6 max cut down the variance 42 points away from Silver Star the only positive that came out with the recent changes on Poker Stars is more star coins to spend in the VIP store i earned close to 500 VPP this month got 1100 star coins free Poker Stars Coffee Mug GL

Hello, Well it came something good out of them. I'm silverstar for the first time 2 weeks ago, from $12 i made it to $100+ from zoom. Well next day got AA, won in a hand $18+ with $5. Then guess what. In less than 2 mins got KKs. Your guess is correct, i lost. First time went all-in pre-flop, the other had AA, lost. After 3-4 hands got another KKs. Flop: 3 hearts, i had king of heart. We bet, and i decided to go all-in. The other call. turn = useless. River -> heart. Ther other had AA, your guess is correct, he had Ace of heart ) That day , i was down to $14 and got a very nice cash reward of $1. It seems poker gor isn't with me this month. I played these missions to make them, but in zoom i played to win, to make a profit, and if there was a shot where i can finish the mission, shure.
