Here’s How to Play Beat the Clock at PokerStars For Free
Earlier this month, PokerStars launched a new Sit & Go game known as Beat the Clock, a style that is now proven to be popular with players around the world.
Each Beat the Clock tournament starts when 48 players have registered and each of those players receive 5,000 chips. The blinds start at 200/400 with an ante of 80, which would ensure fast and frantic action on its own, but when you consider that Beat the Clock is played in a zoom poker format on four-max tables, you can see why this new poker variant is loved by action junkies.
Oh, and there is a five-minute time limit on the tournament! Once five minutes are over, the tournament ends. If you have chips in front of you, you win a share of the prize pool based on your chip stack.
Now, for a limited time only, poker players from the United Kingdom can get their hands on £10 worth of free Beat the Clock tickets. Unlike many promotions that award free money or tickets, there is no deposit required to trigger the freebies; all that’s needed is a PokerStars account (if you don’t already have one) and the tickets are placed into your account.
This amazing offer ends on Dec. 20, which seems a long time away, but with the holiday season rapidly approaching, Dec. 20 will soon be upon us. So don’t delay. Download PokerStars via PokerNews and use the marketing code “PNEWS” when creating your account. PokerStars will add five $1 Beat the Clock tickets to your account instantly. During the following two days, PokerStars will place an additional four $1 tickets into your account, bringing the total number of tickets to 13.
Please be aware that these free Beat the Clock tickets expire within seven days of being issued, but PokerNews is so sure that you’ll fall in love with this new fast-paced game that the free tickets will never be in danger of expiring.
If you fall in love with Beat the Clock tournaments and want to play more of the $1 and $3 buy in games, you’re going to need to make a real money deposit. Thankfully for you, players who download PokerStars via PokerNews can get their hands on a first deposit bonus of up to $600.
Simply make a deposit using the bonus code “STARS600” and PokerStars matches it 100 percent up to a maximum of $600. In fact, you can make a total of three deposits within 60 days, up to a combined maximum of $600, giving you greater flexibility over your bankroll management.
