Gimmick of the Week: PokerStars' Game of Your Life

This week's Gimmick is a new promotion from PokerStars.com. They're giving away more than $1 million and making the outrageous claim that they'll send the winner to any sporting event on the planet.

Doesn't sound outrageous? The winner will get front row seats for as many friends as he or she wants to bring. The only limit is the $100,000 budget!

We explain the details so you can decide whether it's worth your time.

So, like many promotions this one consists of a series of freerolls, culminating with one final in which the $100,000 sporting event package will be awarded.

You can check out the full freeroll schedule right here, or take a look in the PokerStars lobby.

Basically there are daily freeroll and FPP satellites running until May 21. By placing in these you can get a seat in the major $100,000 guarantee freeroll running the following week. The first $100k guarantee is on April 17 and there are six in total.

The finale is on May 22, with the winner taking down the $100k sporting event package.

The Bottom Line

Listen, it's tough to argue with freeroll promotions. Sure it's a longshot since every bonus-hunter and broke-ass on the planet will be doing their best to get their piece, but with over $1 million up for grabs there's a legitimate shot at getting a taste.

Plus how sick would it be to spend $100,000 on a trip to any sporting event on the planet?

If we won we'd pick a really cheap event and take like 5,000 homeless people. Let us know what you'd do in the comments below.
