What are poker races?
Poker races are poker promotions where the players rake/hands stats are recorded and displayed on a leaderboard. At the end of the promo period, players will win the prize on the leaderboard position they finish on. That basically means; the more you rake, the higher you'll place in the leaderboard and the bigger the prize you will get. It's free to participate in a race and if you rake enough then you will qualify for prizes.
There is a second type of race called "chases". The chase differs from the classic rake race as in a chase you will have to hit certain checkpoints to earn a specific amount, without competing against other players for a set number of prizes. So for example earn 1,000 points when playing at the partner for the duration of the chase to get €10 or earn 2,500 points to get €30 and so on.
