Terms & Conditions

The following are the rules (“Rules”) of the Stars Rewards Showdown Promotion (the "Promotion") taking place on our GUI software client (the “Client”) or any of our participating websites or any downloadable apps for our games.

Any entrant (“Entrant” / “you”/ “your”) who wishes to participate in the Promotion hereby agrees to: (i) these Rules; and (ii) the General Terms and Conditions for Promotions on our site (collectively, the “Terms & Conditions”) and agrees to be unconditionally bound by all of the same so as to participate in this Promotion.

1. Details of Promotion

1.1 This Promotion takes place from 9:00 ET on May 11 until 23:59 ET on May 31, 2020 (“Promotion Period”).

1.2 To begin, you must join the Stars Rewards loyalty program and opt-in to the ‘Stars Rewards Showdown’ Challenge by hitting ‘Open’ and then ‘Start’ in your ‘Challenges Window’ in the Client, website or app (where available).

1.3 Once you opt-in, you will be presented with the ‘Stars Rewards Showdown’ board, which contains seven cards:

  1. Five cards forming the ‘community cards’: 10, Q and J of spades, 6 of diamonds, and a 4 of hearts, and
  2. Two cards you will be competing against: a 9 of hearts, and a 9 of clubs.

1.4 As a member of Stars Rewards, you will have already been allocated reward points based on your real money activity on the site. These rewards points are tracked and visible in your progress bar. Every time you complete a progress bar, you will receive a Stars Rewards Chest which will contain a reward. Throughout the Promotion Period, for all customers who are participating in the Promotion, these Stars Rewards Chests will also contain two cards, allocated at random (your ‘hole cards’).

Following the receipt of your hole cards, you will be allocated a prize, as set out in in paragraph 2 below. This prize will automatically be credited to your account via a Chest based on the best five-card hand from any combination of the five community cards and your two hole cards, provided they’re stronger than the cards they’re competing against (as explained in paragraph 1.3b, this is a pair of 9s).

For example, if the two hole cards you receive are a 10 of hearts and an 8 of clubs, your best five-card hand is a pair of 10s. As pair of 10s is higher than pair of 9s, you’ll get a prize as described in the table below.

If the two hole cards you receive are a 2 of clubs and a 2 of hearts, your best five-card hand is a pair of 2s. As this is lower than pair of 9s, you will not receive a prize.

1.5 The hand-strength probability is as follows:

Hand Strength Probability
Royal Flush 0.101%
Straight Flush 0.202%
Flush 4.242%
Straight 2.929%
3 of a kind 1.515%
Two Pair 8.990%
Pair (10s or better) 28.485%
Pair (9 or lower) or High Card 53.535%

2. Prizes

2.1 The type of prize won will be personalised to the games you like to play. The value of the prize you can get will depend on the hand strength and the colour of the Stars Rewards Chest you are ascribed based on your level of play at the time won. Its value will vary as follows:

Hand StrengthBlueBronzeSilverGoldDiamondBlack
Royal Flush $25 $50 $100 $250 $750 $2,500
Straight Flush $5 $10 $25 $75 $250 $500
Flush $2 $5 $10 $35 $100 $200

2.2 For example if you are at ’Silver Chest’ level and hold a 3 of a kind, you will receive a prize to the value of $5.

3. Miscellaneous

3.1 You can play a maximum of 20 hands throughout the Promotion Period.  Once you have played these 20 hands, the challenge in the challenge window will appear as complete and you will no longer receive two ‘hole cards’ if you receive a Stars Rewards Chest during the remainder of the Promotion Period.
