The best way to play the PSPC is to win a coveted Platinum Pass worth $30,000.
A Platinum Pass includes:
1.1 Each Platinum Pass will be awarded via different channels. These could take place online, at live events, through social media channels, or alternative promotional means that we choose to conduct.
2.1 Subject to Clause 2.2 below, the winner of a Platinum Pass will be entitled to the following package:
2.2 It is a condition of this Offer that:
3.1 An individual shall not be entitled to receive more than one Platinum Pass under any circumstances and the following rules shall apply.
3.1.1 If a player wins a second Platinum Pass, it will be forfeited immediately upon discovery, and the player will not receive any compensation. An additional Platinum Pass awarded to a player already in receipt of one will be allocated to another player at our sole determination.
3.2 All employees of The Stars Group and their immediate family members are ineligible to take part in this Offer.
3.3 Any player in receipt of a Platinum Pass, who is barred from PokerStars or from participating in PSLive sponsored events as of 23 of January 2023 , will forfeit their Platinum Pass and shall not be entitled to any compensation.
4.1 All Platinum Pass winners will be required to complete a registration and consent form at the time of their selection to participate in the Championship. Failure to do so will disqualify you from the Offer.
4.2 For the avoidance of doubt, the Platinum Pass and all elements of the prize on offer is non-refundable and non-transferable in any way. If a Platinum Pass winner does not confirm attendance by the specific date prescribed above, or is unable to attend the Championship for any reason, they will forfeit the Platinum Pass and will receive no compensation. We reserve the right to award or distribute any unused or forfeited Platinum Pass at our sole discretion.
4.3 Travel arrangements (including obtaining any applicable visas) together with the cost of getting to the Bahamas for the required dates set out in Clause 2 above, shall be the sole responsibility of the Platinum Pass winner. Failure to secure proper documentation and authorisation for travel to the Championship will result in the forfeiture of your Platinum Pass.
4.4 Please note that further Terms & Conditions may apply to each element of the prize on offer.
4.5 Hotel accommodation dates cannot be amended or varied without incurring costs which shall be at the sole expense of the Platinum Pass winner.
4.6 Winners are responsible for payment of any taxes, licenses, registrations and other fees associated with the Platinum Pass.
4.7 We reserve the sole right to alter or amend any part of this Offer where there are circumstances which prevent the Championship from taking place as scheduled.
