The ultimate goal of the online pokies promotion is to collect as many raffle tickets to the New York prize package drawing as possible, while unlocking achievements in the game to earn as many as 920 free spins.

How to Win New York Holiday

The top prize on the menu is the trip to New York, destined to go to the final raffle drawing’s 1st place winner. Players can collect unlimited entries to the raffle drawing from now through Nov. 25. Every time a member of Guts Casino wagers €25 (or currency equivalent) on the new Basketball Stars slot machine, they will receive 1 ticket to the drawing.

There will be a total of three raffle drawings, set to take place on November 11, 19 and 26. The first raffle will draw 2 winners, awarding cash prizes of €750 to 1st place, and €500 to second. Next week’s drawing will mirror the first, awarding €750 and €500 cash prizes to 2 winners. Then on Thursday, Nov 26, the grand prize drawing takes place, where 3 lucky winners will take home a prize.

The 1st place prize is, of course, the all-inclusive trip to New York. The winner can choose three friends to go along with them (4 in all), where they’ll spend 5 nights in The Big Apple. They will receive 4 court-side seat tickets to attend the basketball game between the NY Knicks and Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center in New York City on February 19, 2016. The winner will also be given USD $1,500 is cash to spend during their holiday.

Being a ‘Big Apple’ promotional theme, it should come as no surprise that the 2nd and 3rd place winners of the finale raffle will be awarded high-tech gadgets from Apple. The 2nd place winner will receive an ‘Apple Gadget Pack’ that contains an iPhone, iPad and the new Apple iWatch. The 3rd place winner will be privy to a slightly smaller ‘Apple Gadget Pack’, including an iPhone and iWatch.

Earn up to 920 Free Spins on Basketball Star

During the promotional period, players can unlock special in-game achievements each day to earn free spins on Basketball Star. This particular online poker machine is packed with 10 unlockable achievements, each of which relate to separately lining up 3, 4 and 5 specific symbols on a single payline.

For example, the red-shirt #8 player symbol must be lined up in a 3-reel combination, a 4-reel combination, and a 5-reel combination, individually. Once that’s done, the player will unlock that achievement, receiving 50 free spins the next day. 9 other symbols can be unlocked in the same manner, awarding anywhere from 10 to 100 free spins per achievement.

Players can track their achievements by clicking the ‘Pays’ tab in the upper right corner. Note that the online version and the mobile version of Basketball Star are tracked separately, which means players have the opportunity to unlock all achievements twice, earning as many as 920 free spins.
