It is a simple bet-and-get type of promotion, giving a $5 free play on Lightning Roulette to players who wager $25 or more on the game during the promotional period, which is from January 10 through 16, 2022.

Customers wishing to take part must log on to PokerStars Casino and opt-in via the challenges section of their Stars account. Once they have opted in, players must place one or more bets totaling $25 or above on the game of Lightning Roulette in the qualifying period and they will receive a $5 credit for the game, regardless of whether their original bet wins or loses.

It is a straightforward offer with very few hoops to jump through, so players will no doubt be keen to get involved. The usual terms and conditions apply — players must be 21 or over and physically located in the jurisdiction where the promotion is offered.

Another Bonus for New Players

In addition to the Game of the Week promotion, players who are new to PokerStars Casino can also enjoy its Welcome Offer: Bet $1, Get $50. It is another extremely simple offer to take advantage of — players just need to sign up to PokerStars and opt-in to the bonus offer.

Then all they need to do is wager a single dollar on a casino game and they will receive an instant $50 bonus for use at PokerStars Casino. This offer is ongoing and is set to run for the foreseeable future.

Looking Forward Through 2022

PokerStars will be looking to consolidate and build on its position in MI and PA in the coming year.

The Red Spade brand still lags some way behind the big guns of BetMGM, DraftKings, and FanDuel in Michigan — and trails Hollywood Casino, Rivers-Philadelphia, and Valley Forge in Pennsylvania.

A disappointing October for the operator in MI — dipping under $1 million in revenue for the month — was followed by a strong rally in November, grossing $2.5 million. Meanwhile, turnover in PA — where Stars operates on the Mount Airy license — remained steady throughout the second half of 2021.

The online casino business looks healthy in MI and PA, with combined revenue of all operators looking to exceed $1 billion for 2021 in both jurisdictions.

This is an impressive enough feat for Pennsylvania which has had online casinos live for nearly two and a half years now but is even more remarkable for Michigan, where the first online gambling operations launched at the end of January 2021.

Whatever 2022 has in store, PokerStars will be looking to use its dominance of the US online poker market to help grow its online casino presence throughout the country. The Game of the Week may be its first casino promotion of the year, but it certainly will not be the last.
