PokerStars and BetStars are teaming up to provide an unmissable opportunity in The Big Race, a motor sports-themed $2 buy-in online poker tournament with the chance to win a poker holiday of a lifetime to the European Poker Tour (EPT) Prague and up to $2,500 in free sports bets in total, ranging from $2 to $50.

The player with the winning driver will receive an EPT Prague package worth approximately €7,200, including eight nights’ accommodation at the Hilton Prague Hotel, a Main Event seat worth €5,300 and approximately €500 spending money.

In addition to the first prize package and players’ shares of the prize pool, the top 500 finishers in The Big Race will be awarded up to $2,500 worth of free BetStars bets in total, ranging from $2 to $50. Bets will be awarded as follows:

Earlier this year, The Big Race promotion ran a horse racing edition exclusively in the United Kingdom. The winner, Chris Hopgood, was awarded a trip to PokerStars Festival Marbella with the added bonus of professional coaching from PokerStars Ambassadors Jake Cody and Fatima De Melo.

Chris said at the time, “I can’t believe I’ve won! Now I’m off to Marbella all for $2! I’m nervous but very excited to get to play in my first big live tournament! Native River will be a horse that I will never forget.”
