Think poker loyalty schemes are all the same? Think again! Our unique Poker Challenges can reward you for simple tasks like being dealt a pair – adding an element of surprise to every hand. You can also sharpen your game by playing strategically to complete the trickier Challenges. The start of a new quarter means the start of a new set of Poker Challenges! All Challenges Points will be reset on 1st October and new Minor and Major Challenges set for players.
Through our innovative loyalty program, players can earn rewards including free cash, playthrough bonuses, poker tickets. Additionally, the opportunity to a package for the Unibet Open, the next stop of which will be in beautiful Bucharest!
How do I earn Challenges Points?
For each poker type, you’ll always have two Challenges active – a Minor and a Major. Minor Challenges are the easiest, e.g. ‘Be dealt a suited hand’, whereas Major Challenges usually require more strategy, e.g. ‘Win a hand postflop when you have any hand worse than one pair’.
Each Challenge is split into steps, and that’s how many times you have to complete the task to receive your Challenges Points. A Challenge showing 5/30 means you’ve completed the task 5 times, and you’ve got 25 more to go before your points are awarded.
Multi-table tournaments don’t have their own Challenges – instead, they award Challenges Points directly. For every €1 you spend in tournament fees, you’ll receive 100 points.
What can I do with Challenges Points?
Challenges Points track your progression, and you’ll start earning rewards as soon as you get 50 points. Rewards include free cash, new avatars, playthrough bonuses, poker tickets and bonus points. You can then exchange any bonus points you earn for extra rewards of your choice!
For more information about how Poker Challenges work, see our Help Centre.

partypoker ambassador Natalia Breviglieri said: “The new partypoker Monster Series is a fantastic initiative. Like me, there’s a lot of players out there who really enjoy playing low to mid stake Sit and Go’s or MTT’s and will relish the opportunity to compete in a tournament series tailored just for them. There are some really huge guarantees on offer throughout the Series. Furthermore, it’s clear that a lot of thought has gone into designing a schedule that offers a wide range of formats. I’m really excited about this series, it’s going to be a fun 11 days. Lastly, I can’t wait to start playing!”
