Poker Challenges

If you’re after loyalty rewards, our popular Poker Challenges is the smart option for new and seasoned players alike!

Basically, we’ve set unique Challenges and if you complete them you win extra cash, special avatars, playthrough bonuses, Poker tickets and bonus points!

Challenge prizes are separate to regular winnings, so it’s an exciting way to boost your takings as you sharpen your game.

How does it work?

At any time, there are two types of Challenges on Cash Games and Sit&Gos where you can earn Challenge Points to climb a lucrative ladder.

Minor Challenges are easiest and may be as simple as ‘be dealt a suited hand’ or ‘have the ace of spades as one of your hole cards’.

Major Challenges require some skill and insight, like ‘raise preflop, reach a flop with only one picture card, then win with one bet’ or ‘win a hand at showdown’.

The higher your stake, the more points you can collect towards great prizes such as a VIP Unibet Open trip!

MTT and HexaPro
1 point for every €0,01 rake


When taking on a Challenge you’ll do so in steps. So, a Challenge that shows 5/30 means you’ve done the task five times and have 25 left to receive the points.

To keep it interesting the Challenges change every quarter, while you can also discard two a month if you come stuck.

There are no specific MTT or HexaPro Challenges; instead you get a Challenge Point for every €0,01 paid in rake.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How many points do I get when I complete a Poker Challenge?
  • Each Challenge awards different points depending on difficulty. Also, the higher stake you play, the more points you get. If you play a mixture of Cash Game stakes to complete a step, then you will be rewarded with the corresponding proportion of points. For example, if you complete 80% of your steps at NL25 and 20% at NL50, you earn 80% of the points from NL25 and 20% of the points from NL50.
How long do Challenges take?
  • On average, it takes:
  • Minor challenges: 50 hands in Cash Game (100bb), 100 hands in Banzai (10bb) or 5 SNG's
  • Major challenges: 1000 hands in Cash Game (100bb), 1000 hands in Banzai (10bb) or 50 SNG's
Do I receive anything if I was close to reaching another stage in the Poker rewards table?
  • If you earn more than 500.000 Challenge points in a given quarter, any excess points you earn in between payout stages will be carried over to the following quarter.
Where can I follow my progress?
  • Go to your Profile in the Poker client and click the Challenges tab.
