Final PokerStars Pit Stop Cash Drop Jackpot Grows to More Than $200K

As the F1 season comes to a close this weekend, PokerStars is upping the ante with a $220,000 jackpot in the Pit Stop Cash Drop promotion

As the Formula One season comes to a close this weekend, PokerStars is upping the ante with a $220,000 jackpot up for grabs for one lucky online poker player in the Pit Stop Cash Drop promotion.

Stars, an Oracle Red Bull Racing team partner, has run racing-themed promotions since the French Grand Prix in July. Recent events have led to the super-sized prize drop.

“With the huge excitement of the F1 season and the stellar performance from the Oracle Red Bull Racing team, it’s only fitting to celebrate in style and award this massive prize to our deserving community,” PokerStars director of partnerships, public relations, and consumer engagement Rebecca McAdam Willetts said in a news release.

“Offering epic rewards to the community is at the heart of our partnership with Oracle Red Bull Racing, and we are truly excited to see who lands the PokerStars Pit Stop Cash Drop jackpot.”

How to win the PokerStars Pit Stop Cash Drop

Every Tuesday after each F1 race, PokerStars randomly dropped a jackpot prize into one PokerStars player’s account. The player had just 15 minutes to claim the cash.

With no player claiming the jackpot so far this season, the jackpot increased every race and now stands at $220,000 if the Oracle Red Bull Racing team makes the podium. If the team comes up short of the podium, $210,000 will be on the line to one lucky player.

The final Pit Stop Cash Drop is set for Nov. 22 after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. For this cash drop, instead of the 15-minute time limit, PokerStars is raising that to 48 hours.

This gives players a longer window of time to claim the prize. To earn a chance to win, players must opt in to the promotion.

If the jackpot chest remains unclaimed after Nov. 24, Stars will select another player until the phenomenal prize is finally claimed. Now doubt, plenty of players will be eagerly checking their accounts.

A big winner on tap

Clues to the mystery winner will be shared across PokerStars Casino social media channels. Stars will invite players to guess along with a series of #WhoWunnit clues hinting at the winner’s identity.

Across the F1 season, Stars has awarded players with a host of special race weekend rewards. With the Red Bull partnership, the site has aimed to bring F1-fueled entertainment to players and fans through:

  • unique experiences
  • promotions
  • competitions
  • exclusive content

The efforts are part of a multi-year agreement with Red Bull Oracle Racing.

Need for Speed: PokerStars Players Can Now Take the Wheel With New Spin & Go Races

PokerStars announced the launch of Spin & Go Races on Tuesday, a new game with $105,000 in guaranteed prizes awarded each week.

 As the Formula One World Championship approaches the series’ crescendo, PokerStars is allowing players to get in on the ride. The site announced the launch of Spin & Go Races on Tuesday, a new game with guaranteed prizes around every corner.

The promotion runs through Nov. 20 and players can compete for a share of $105,000 in guaranteed weekly prizes via Spin & Go Races leaderboards. The promotion is part of the company’s growing partnership with F1’s Oracle Red Bull Racing.

“It’s been a phenomenal season and we’ve been proud to have the PokerStars community, reaping rewards along the way and mirroring our drive to stay at the top,” Oracle Red Bull Racing team principal and CEO Christian Horner said in a news release.

How do PokerStars Spin & Go Races work?

Players looking to get in the game are in store for some fun events with some nice bang for the buck. There are multiple Spin & Go Race leaderboards to choose from, based on the tournament buy-in. Each leaderboard includes 22 races (tournaments) in which to compete.

Fitting for an F1 promotion, there are plenty of racing themes. Each player begins with a full fuel gauge, which remains full for those who win their race.

The gauge decreases if a player finishes second or third. Fuel is key to speeding to the top of the leaderboard. For those who run out of fuel, it’s time for a pit stop and their progress bar is reset before they can try again.

Opting in to get the green flag

The first Spin & Go Race is inspired by the usual Formula One season opener, Bahrain, and got underway this week. Players looking to compete must opt in for the action via the Spin & Go lobby, the leaderboard lobby, or at Spin & Go tables.

This unlocks a player’s participation in the event throughout the duration of the promotion. Here are some other key features of Spin & Go Races:

  • Game numbers – Each attempt is comprised of 22 Spin & Go games. Each week, players can make three attempts at each leaderboard buy-in level.
  • Earning points – The lower the multiplier in the Spin & Go, the more points players earn.
  • Saving fuel – Win the Spin & Go and a player doesn’t lose any fuel. Place second or third and competitors lose 8%. Run out of fuel and the attempt is over.
  • Tracking progress – The Spin & Go lobby allows players to see how they’re doing on the Spin & Go track.

Adding to the F1 PokerStars fun

The new Races build on Stars’ relationship with Oracle Red Bull. The company announced the partnership earlier this year. The multi-year deal features branding on the RB18 Formula One car and racing suits.

Stars is looking to reach some of F1’s growing audience as increasing technological advancements help to provide fans with new and unique ways to enjoy the sport. Past Stars promotions have awarded players with exclusive F1 experiences.

“We strive to give the community epic moments that they’ll never forget and there’s been so much excitement this F1 season, on and off the track, with community members winning unique and epic experiences,” PokerStars director of partnerships, public relations and consumer engagement Rebecca McAdam Willetts said.

“We can’t wait to see Spin & Go Races play out each week and give more rewards as part of our partnership with Oracle Red Bull Racing.”

Football legend Ronaldo signs Stars partnership

Brazilian football star Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima (also known simply as Ronaldo) rejoined PokerStars Tuesday in a renewed partnership focused on his love of poker.

“The poker community can expect to see plenty from Ronaldo throughout the year, including on his Twitch channel where he plans to stream PokerStars tournaments,” the company noted in a news release.

Football superstar Ronaldo has joined Team PokerStars.

The 45-year-old’s career spanned 1993 to 2011 and he retired after scoring 280 goals. During his illustrious career, Ronaldo played for major football clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid, and AC Milan.

In international play for Brazil, he also played in 98 matches and scored 62 goals. That was highlighted by helping the team win the World Cup in 2002.

He is now involved in various business interests including serving as president of La Liga club Real Valladolid. He is also the owner of Brazilian club Cruzeiro.

Beyond the pitch, Ronaldo also has a passion for poker. He previously became a member of Team PokerStars in 2013.

Now almost a decade later, he now returns to the company as an ambassador. More information about promotions involving Ronaldo are expected to be released in the coming weeks.  

“I am extremely excited to announce that I am becoming part of the PokerStars family again,” he said. “I have always been a huge fan of the game and look forward to working on some exciting projects in the future. Keep an eye on Ronaldo TV where I’ll be streaming some tournaments soon.”

A partnership with Oracle Red Bull Racing began for PokerStars in January and the two are now teaming up for the upcoming Formula 1 British Grand Prix. The company is hosting numerous promotions across all its gaming platforms.

“The hotly-anticipated race is just around the corner and to celebrate PokerStars is once again taking fans on an epic ride with a season-long program of race weekend rewards encouraging the PokerStars and Oracle Red Bull Racing communities to ‘Embrace the Race,’” Stars noted in a news release

PokerStars launches ‘Embrace the Race’ freeroll

As part of the F1 action, PokerStars is bringing something new to players. While the checkered flag signals the end of a race, it’s just the beginning of the action for PokerStars players.

The site is launching a new post-race weekend tournament, the Embrace the Race Checkered Flag Freeroll. The event runs every Monday beginning July 25, just after the French Grand Prix.

Players who participated in the Sunday Million the previous day or tried to qualify the previous week can enter. The tournament features $25,000 guaranteed in Sunday Million tickets or qualifying tickets.

As an extra, if an Oracle Red Bull Racing driver wins Sunday’s race, PokerStars will double the freeroll prize pool to $50,000.

As part of the team-up with Red Bull, PokerStars hopes to continue bringing Formula 1-fueled entertainment to players and fans. That includes unique experiences, promotions, competitions, and content. Embrace the Race follows the Red Spade Pass launch earlier this year, offering winners a live F1 fan experience.

PokerStars Casino adds to F1 celebration with an extra $1 million on the line

Beyond the poker platform, plenty of extra cash is on the line at PokerStars Casino as well. On June 30, ahead of the British Grand Prix, the casino site will drop $1 million in bonuses and free spins.

All eligible players need to do is log in and open their PokerStars Chest to see their slice of the prize. Additionally, PokerStars Casino is introducing a new leaderboard format for Casino Races. This will see the prize pool double each race weekend.

The promotion is planned for every F1 race beginning with the Austria Grand Prix. Every weekend Casino Races will feature a $50,000 prize pool. But on race weekends, that doubles to $100,000.

To join the action, players can register for free via the Casino Races lobby or widget and then play their favorite slots. Every winning spin awards points and helps players climb the leaderboard.

More in the works with Pitstop Drops

Even more F1-related fun is coming to PokerStars Casino. Pit stops are one of the most intense elements of a Grand Prix, with races won or lost in a matter of seconds.

Now PokerStars brings that excitement and anticipation to casino players with Pitstop Drops. Launching alongside the Embrace the Race, Pitstop Drops randomly choose one player for an instant bonus of $10,000.

PokerStars will boost that to $20,000 on the .COM platform if Oracle Red Bull Racing takes the top spot on race day.

Fitting for the speed of an F1 pit stop, the lucky player has just 15 minutes to claim the prize. If not claimed in time, the money rolls over into the next Grand Prix. Pitstop Drops run every Tuesday following a race, with the first drop set for July 26.

PokerStars marketing director Tom Warren said the new promotional efforts fit in line with Stars’ plans for the F1 partnership.

“Embrace the Race once again cements our vision of giving our community epic moments they’ll never forget – and with the huge excitement of the F1 season reaching the British Grand Prix, it’s only fitting we kick off with a massive $1 million drop,” Warren said. “These new rewards are just a taste of more to come as we speed through the 2022 season.”

* PokerStars Casino promotions are available on the .COM, .UK, and .RO sites. The Pitstop Drop instant bonus is £10,000 in the United Kingdom and boosted to £20,000. On the .RO, the bonus is 20,000RON and boosted to 40,000RON.

Video game debut coming to partypoker

One of the first promotions out of the gate is the release of a new video game. This follows the launch of the partnership in 2021 that included special racing-inspired poker tournaments, prizes, and more.

Like those efforts, the video game will also be featured in the partypoker gaming platform.

“Coming soon, the first exciting launch of the year will allow partypoker players to compete in a new McLaren Racing arcade game,” the company noted in a news release.

“Players can give themselves the chance to win prizes, including exclusive McLaren Racing rewards and merchandise that can be won throughout the 2022 Formula 1 season.”

More details on the video game are coming soon.

Back on the track

On the track, the start of the F1 season is just weeks away. Partypoker’s logo will again be featured on McLaren’s car during several races this season.

The company also continues its “See the Unseen” video series, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the racing team. Fans can expect to see the final partypoker episodes with members of McLaren Racing.

These episodes follow interviews from last season with driver Daniel Ricciardo and CEO Zak Brown.

The partypoker video team recently caught up with the McLaren pit crew members as part of the series. They offered insight into how much work goes into preparing cars for a race weekend.

“My favorite part of the race weekend is easily qualifying,” top race mechanic Andrew Salt noted in the video.

“The car has to be turned around very quickly. That includes changing the front wing settings, changing the tires, putting fuel in the car. Sometimes we have to complete all of that within a minute. It’s an adrenaline rush from start to finish.”

Finding the winner’s circle

Other pit crew members commented on how it feels when the team comes through with a win. 

“Seeing our cars on the podium is a massive thing,” build test technician James Herbert said.

“It’s so rewarding when you see the reaction on the drivers’ faces and everyone at the track. We talk about it on the Monday after a race, even if it’s not such a good race, but everyone is more hyped up if you’ve had a good one.”

All episodes can be seen in full at the partypoker McLaren Racing hub.

Partypoker will release more information about the company’s plans with McLaren Racing for 2022 in the coming weeks.

PokerStars adds to its Formula One presence

This isn’t the first foray into Formula One for PokerStars. The company’s parent group, Flutter International, announced in June 2021 that it had partnered with Interregional Sports Group (ISG) and Formula One.

That agreement sees the Stars brand featured exclusively throughout the European broadcast market for each season through 2023. The Red Bull deal comes ahead of the 2022 Formula One season and now links Stars not just to the racing circuit but to an individual team.

“The new relationship enables both Red Bull Racing and PokerStars to reach audiences who share similar passions and interests, while rewarding and engaging existing fans and players in new and unique ways with Formula One-fueled entertainment, as well as epic experiences, promotions, competitions, and content,” the company notes.

Red Bull will feature PokerStars branding on the RB18 car and race suits. F1 remains the most popular auto racing circuit in the world.

“Following last year’s blockbuster Formula One season, I am delighted to kick off 2022 by announcing PokerStars as a new partner,” Red Bull racing team principal and CEO Christian Horner said. “In our sport we see constant evolution, not only applied to the cars but also to new technologies that are focused on reaching the sport’s global fanbase to provide new and interactive experiences for them to enjoy.”

Growing promotional and content opportunities

The Formula One opportunity offers some unique content and promotional possibilities for PokerStars. The company envisions a wide-ranging promotional and content-creation campaign.

That will be seen across PokerStars’ full poker, casino, and sports betting platforms. The Reb Bull brand trends to a younger audience, a market rife for adding new players.

Stars isn’t the only online operator in the Formula One fold. Partypoker announced a deal in May 2021 with McLaren Racing.

The company has used the partnership to create contests for players as well as racing-themed tournaments. Party has also created a video series offering behind-the-scenes insight and interviews with McLaren insiders.

The need for sponsorship dollars is a symbiotic relationship. Running a Formula One team costs tens of millions of dollars each year. Sponsors are critical and help subsidize a team’s budget.

In turn, sponsors gain access to a passionate fan base. In the case of online poker companies, bring in new players is key. Formula One adds to the industry’s efforts at converting some of those race fans to poker fans.
