PokerStars Ramps Up Opportunities to Win a Platinum Pass; Online & Live Events Unveiled

The battles for a Platinum Pass are about to heat up. PokerStars announced details on how players can get their hands on the coveted prizes on Tuesday.

A Platinum Pass is valued at more than $30,000 for a travel package that includes a $25,000 buy-in to the PokerStars Players Championship (PPC).

The paths to a Platinum Pass launched Tuesday offering players of all levels the opportunity to win. The company is offering both live and online routes to a Platinum Pass and the PPC.

PokerStars ambassador Ramon Colillas won the first PPC via his own pass in 2019. He collected $5.1 million for the win and is happy to see the tournament and promotion return.

“At the PokerStars Players Championship, anything is possible, but you have to get there first,” he said in a news release. “Opportunities don’t just happen, you have to create them and winning a Platinum Pass is the perfect way to make sure that you don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity.”
