- The Red Spade Pass returns this year as PokerStars extends its partnership with Red Bull Racing
- The operator will give Red Spade passes throughout the 2023 Formula One season
- A new content series called “Between the Lines” also debuts this month
PokerStars and reigning Formula One champions Oracle Red Bull Racing (ORBR) first joined forces in January of last year, ahead of the 2022 Formula One season.
As part of the partnership, fans were treated to exciting experiences, with the launch of the Red Spade Pass being the icing on the cake. That will continue this year as both parties have agreed to extend their alliance.
Additionally, fans will have access to a new content series titled “Between the Lines”.
Red Spade Pass Returns
PokerStars players and fans first had a taste of the Red Spade Pass last year where they were given the chance to win a Monaco Grand Prix package, along with a PokerStars/ORBR merchandise bundle, $250 worth of free casino spins and sports bets, and a €109 Sunday Million ticket, among others.
PokerStars will once again award Red Spade passes this year, and the first batch will be given away via “Spin of the Day”, PokerStars’ free-to-play online casino game. Players have until July 10 to win a share of the first set of Red Spade passes, but those who miss out may still take another shot as there will still be passes available through October.
Red Spade passes will be awarded via a range of different routes throughout the 2023 Formula 1 season. Like last year, the site could host special edition freerolls, so players should stay tuned.
Between the Lines Hits the Screen
The ongoing partnership between PokerStars and ORBR has paved the way for the creation of a new content series called “Between the Lines”, which explores the shared characteristics of poker and motorsport.
Two elite sports; one winning mindset. 🙌🏆
