McLaren and partypoker Promotion
Let’s first talk about how you can participate in this event. To have a chance of winning, all you have to do is watch a 30-second video where Daniel Ricciardo describes a classic Formula 1 circuit.
In this short clip, an Australian racer will describe the opening corners of a Formula 1 circuit. He will also mention the directions and speeds, as well as the scenery seen from the driver’s perspective. After that, you will be given a choice of five different circuits. You can only choose one. For a true Formula 1 fan, this challenge should be pretty straightforward.
You can find this video in the Acces Hub menu on the partypoker.com website. This new area was specifically created for McLaren F1 team fans to enter such competitions and gain exclusive access. Keep in mind that all participants should enter the competition and give their answers by August 30. You also have to be over 25 years old to participate. Everyone who guesses the circuit correctly will be automatically put in a raffle with a chance to win one of the following prizes:
- 1st Prize – a full McLaren F1 Team experience for the winner and their friend at the upcoming Italian Grand Prix at the Monza racing circuit, which will take place on Sunday 13th September 2021. This prize will include a 15-minute meet-and-greet with McLaren F1 Team racing driver Daniel Ricciardo. To cover all of the traveling expenses, the winner will also receive $5,000. In the case of COVID-19 restrictions, organizers have a right to substitute meet-and-greet with an online alternative.
- 2nd Prize – four other winners will each receive a pair of four grandstand tickets for the Italian Grand Prix race.
- 3rd Prize – ten other winners will each receive a branded McLaren F1 Team cap.
In addition to this giveaway, partpoker is hosting a second promotion in partnership with McLaren F1 Team. This promotion was launched on August 23 and will last until September 19. In this event, players will need to earn McLaren Miles by playing cash games in partypoker. Each time a player hits a certain amount of rake, a mystery card will be given. These cards can range in value from $0.50 all the way up to $1,000. Mystery cards can also grant you, McLaren Miles. McLaren Miles will allow you to participate in prize raffles on partypoker’s Instagram at the end of this event. One McLaren Mile is equal to one ticket for a prize draw. Nine lucky players will win a pair of tickets each to the 2022 F1 Emirates Grand Prix De France and $5,000 for travel expenses. Please keep in mind that in order to activate your card, you need to go to the “Offers” section of the client and enter the McLaren F1 Card Rush page.
Obviously, such an event is mainly aimed at casual players with a purpose to make them play more cash games with a chance to win up to $1,000. But even regulars can benefit from such promotion, as they can enjoy larger and softer traffic.

Why is this Partnership Important?
McLaren F1 Team opted to team up with Entain, a prominent worldwide sports betting and gaming business, at the start of this year. PartyCasino and partpoker are two of Entain’s brands. During this year’s Monaco Grand Prix, the PartyCasino logo was shown for the first time on the McLaren F1 vehicle and Daniel Ricciardo’s helmet. Entain and McLaren F1 Team are both known for their innovative approach to entertainment and promotions. The McLaren F1 Card Rush is an excellent example of such a strategy.
It may sound too dramatic, but McLaren F1 Card Rush is more than just a promotion. In the past, there have been numerous collaborations between poker sites, football players, and professional fighters. For example, PokerStars has given away tickets to the UFC fights as their promotion. Partypoker is joining this trend but does so in a unique and unconventional way. Formula 1 is a new territory of development for poker sites. It is clear that Jette Nygaard-Andersen (CEO of Entain) wants to take up this untouched niche before anyone else. This is good news for the industry as a whole because it shows that poker sites are constantly expanding and attracting more and more partners from all kinds of places.
Partypoker and McLaren F1 Team may have more in common than you think. Both companies provide entertainment but do so through cutting-edge innovation and prioritizing safety and responsibility. As Paris Anatolitis (partypoker brands managing director) states:
“We share a lot in common, despite being in different fields. There is this absolute drive to succeed in everything we do. We are both technology businesses at heart who are continuously looking to innovate to develop a compelling end product. We do that to excite our customers, and they do it to excite their fans! But perhaps most importantly, we both want to offer an exhilarating and entertaining product, while remaining aware of the importance of doing so in an environment where safety is at the forefront.”
This multi-year partnership is still relatively young. We can be sure that partypoker and McLaren F1 Team have a bunch of innovative and exciting promotions in their arsenal. But right now you have a nice opportunity to win some excellent prizes.
