PokerStars Beat the Clock – new tournament variant for hurried players
The market leader PokerStars (click here to go to the poker room) introduced a new tournament variant in November 2016: PokerStars Beat the Clock brings fast action and is especially interesting for players who only have a few minutes to play. That’s because all tournaments end after five minutes, no matter the score. Both, new players as well as already registered players get the possibility to grab free tickets by taking part in a temporary promotion. Keep reading to find out more about Beat the Clock and the current offer.
Beat the Clock – also available for Android, iPhone and iPad
Obviously, a new poker variant for players who only have little time is predestined for the mobile usage. Hence, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Beat the Clock has been available in the PokerStars App right from the beginning. The fast Beat the Clock tournaments were placed as an additional gaming variant directly in the App’s lobby. Next to Zoom Poker, K.O. Poker, Spin & Go and other variants you can now also select Beat the Clock.
Once you’re seated at a table you can be certain that the tournament is going to be over in five minutes at the latest. That’s because the maximum tournament duration is given. It doesn’t matter whether two or twenty of the players still have chips – the tournament ends automatically and all players get their guaranteed share of the prize pool depending on their chips. The maximum number of players at Beat the Clock Sit & Gos is 48. And you’re playing in the zoom mode. That means that you’re automatically seated at a new table as soon as you fold your hand. As a result, fast action is guaranteed and it prevents you from having to spend your limited time on watching some super slow opponents.
Bonus for new players and existing players
In order to celebrate the new tournament variant PokerStars has come up with a special bonus that is available for all players for a limited time only. New players as well as current players can each profit from a limited offer:
New players: deposit $20 and receive $30 for Beat the Clock
If you make your first deposit at PokerStars (minimum $20) and enter the bonus code CLOCK30, you’ll get a free bonus package worth $30. The following free tournament tickets or cash prizes are available for six days:

However, the tickets that you haven’t used so far as well as the bonus offers will expire afterwards.
Reload offer for current customers: deposit €14 and receive five free tickets

In contrast to the promotion for first depositors the bonus offer for existing players expires on 4th December 2016. The free tickets are valid for 14 days. The prizes you win by using the tournament tickets are yours and you can withdraw them without having to stick to any wagering requirements.

Tip: You can combine both bonuses
New players who’d like to make use of the maximum PokerStars bonus can combine both promotions. Therefore, you first have to use the first deposit bonus by using the code CLOCK30. Afterwards, you can use the code CLOCK2016 when making your next deposit and thereby get five free tickets on top.
