New contest format - FAQ

Post by Webman »



Here are some details on the new contest format. We hope you enjoy the changes!- We're giving away more money and more Gold memberships every week ($750 per week, and 11 Gold memberships, plus and additional $250 and 9 more Gold memberships at the end of each month).- Contests are now weekly, beginning every Monday and ending Sunday at midnight (pacific)-
There are three weekly games to choose from. If one of the games isn't your favorite, you now have a choice of something else to play. Or, play all three throughout the week to mix it up. The format
on the Weekly Contests is similar to our previous contests... play 100
hands, and the best individual session wins. Play as many session as you'd like.- Two games will have $100 prizes for 1st place, with Gold memberships for 2nd and 3rd. - One game will be selected as the Game of the Week, with $500 in prizes and even more Gold memberships awarded.
The Game of the Week will be selected by our Gold members each week.
Gold members can vote for their favorite game from 3 options at the
bottom left of the new Contest page. The winner will automatically be selected as the next Game of the Week.- Additionally,
there is now a monthly contest beginning at the start of every month
and running through the end. The Monthly Challenge is
single hand video poker, up to 5 sessions per day. In this contest,
scores are cumulative. So every session counts towards your grand total for the month. The winner will be the player with the best overall score.-All
winners above will qualify for the annual
Tournament of Champions, playing for $1,000 cash and a Vegas dream
vacation. There will no longer be randomly selected TOC qualifiers.- Finally, there will be 3 random drawings at the end of each week for 3
prizes ($50, and 2 monthly Gold memberships). Drawings are made from a
single pool... playing any of the three weekly games can qualify you.
The qualifying amounts are different for each game and are listed above
the game while you play. The $50 prize will be drawn first, followed by
the Gold membership prizes. Players can only win one random drawing per
week.-See contest rules for complete details

Yes, the 7 Star had to be pushed to September because it's just too cool to rush. Details will be announced Monday.
