Casino Races are one of the latest innovative features to come out of online casinos in recent years. Available at casinos such as the PokerStars Casino, the races give players a new dimension of fun playing their favorite casino games.
While playing online casino games can be very traditional — a player playing alone — PokerStars Casino Races add the element of competition to playing online casino games.
Best of all, they are available in the PokerStars Casino 24/7, meaning you will always have the opportunity to participate in these engaging competitions.
How to play PokerStars Casino races?
PokerStars Casino races are available in states where the PokerStars Casino is available including in Pennsylvania under the PokerStars Mt. Airy Casino.
You can find PokerStars Casino races under “Races” at the PokerStars Casino website or app. Once you have found the races, you will find a list of ongoing and upcoming races that detail the total prizes available, the duration of the race and the minimum bet required to participate. You can also see the number of other players that have entered the race — so you will always know how much competition you are up against.
In order to participate in a PokerStars Casino race, you must click the “Play” or “Register” button — this will opt you into the race. Then when the race begins, just start playing and watch yourself climb the leaderboard.
Here’s a look at what you will find when in the lobby of the casino races. Make sure to check back frequently to see upcoming races that are available in the PokerStars Casino.
How to win PokerStars Casino races
The main appeal of a casino race is watching yourself climb up the leaderboard for a chance to win one of the posted prizes, which you can find in the Casino Race lobby by clicking the “trophy” icon.
Prize pools for the races range from free spins to cash prizes. The prizes are awarded in addition to your winnings that you receive while playing the game.
As you play, you will be awarded points for winning bets while playing eligible games. Sometimes the races will be for multiple games, whereas other races will be offered while playing at specific PokerStars Casino games.
When the Casino Race period has been completed, the PokerStars Casino will pay players instantly with the prize for their position on the leaderboard. Should two or more players be tied, the player with the highest number of bets will win the prize of the portion.
How are points determined in PokerStars Casino Races?
How points are allocated will differ based on the type of race being played.
With PokerStars Slots Races, the points system will be based on the total multiplier per spin/hand and not the total amount wagered. So if you are looking to maximize your value from the race, it’s probably best to bet small.
For example, if you win 5x your bet during a spin, you will receive 500 points. If you win 8x your bet during a spin, you will receive 800 points. The amount you wager has no impact.
In the case of races with more than one round, the score from your highest round will be applied to your position on the leaderboard. Note that in races that involve multiple games, you may only play one eligible game at a time that will be applied to the race.
Live Casino races
Points for Live Casino Races differ quite a bit from slots races. Instead of points based on a multiplier, you must have a “net win” in the game to receive points for that round.
To earn points in Live Casino Races, you will receive 10 points for every $0.01 in net win. This means if you end up winning $10, you will receive 10,000 points.
All Live Casino games are eligible for earning points and unlike slots races, you may play multiple games at once and earn points.
