On January 26. (that’s today!), PokerStars began melting a giant Ice Spade and streaming it live on YouTube.
What’s the point, you ask?
Here’s the twist. Inside the Ice Spade is a red all-in triangle. Once the ice has melted enough, the triangle will fall down and touch the ribbon and the competition will be over.
It’s called the Ice Spade Challenge.
All you have to do is guess how long the ice will take to melt. Whoever guesses closest to the exact time will be declared the winner.
And it’s not all for nothing. The winner will receive a brand new Oculus Quest 2 Virtual Reality Headset.
You only have 12 hours from the start of the Ice Spade Challenge to make your guess. Time is already ticking! Voting is open and will close when the timer on the live stream hits 12 hours.
To submit your entry, head over to the Ice Spade Challenge live stream on PokerStars YouTube. Make sure you are subscribed to the channel, then make your entry in the following format: [HH:MM:SS] [Stars ID] #IceSpade. Full T&Cs can be found here.
On Thursday, we’ll also be asking trivia questions throughout the day as we stream the Ice Spade Challenge. Answer correctly, and you’ll be entered into a draw for the chance to win PokerStars Home Game merchandise packs.
The Ice Spade Challenge is going to be a lot of fun, so keep checking back on PokerStars social media for updates. Will you be the winner of an Oculus Quest 2 VR headset? Right now, it’s time to check out the ice sculpture and make your guess.
