Hi Nick.
I have been talking to a friend who has been in touch with Unibet support. They have said that this coming Sunday is the last weekly final to win IPO 300 tickets. Is this correct, considering there are two more Sundays before IPO week?
Also, what happens to any 33 tickets that people have in their accounts after Sunday?

Tournament structure is as in original post above. It hasn't changed nor will it.

Hi Mick,

1) The Online Satellites to IPO are scheduled to run right up to and including Sunday 20th October.

2) All €5 and €33 tickets can be used right up to and including 20th October. Any unused €5 and €33 tickets will be void after 20th October.

3) All the Online qualifiers award €300 tickets to the Online Day 1 which is on Monday 21st October at 20:00. Any player who does not use his ticket to enter the online Day 1 can hold on to it and use it to play in any live day 1 at the event.

4) Players who win one €300 ticket online cannot transfer their ticket to a different player or take a cash value for it - They will forefit the ticket and the buy-in will go into the Main Event prizepool.

5) Any player who wins more than one €300 ticket can use subsequent tickets to re-enter the tournament. Any player who has multiple tickets and only uses one of their tickets can wait until reg closes in the last Day 1 flight and then either use it to play side events or receive 300T'$ into their online Unibet acc.


Nick

PS: Can you send me a screenshot of the wrong information that the helpdesk sent?

Hi Nick,
i have a €300 IPO ticket won online which expires before the live day 1's start,
i assume that won't be an issue and i can just come in on whatever day 1 i want to play, even if the ticket disappears from my account?

Possibly a silly question but would it have been a ticket for the online days only?
