What? That's not enough to tempt you. OK, we'll to give you a little something extra, PokerStars is also giving the lucky winners a seven-night stay for two in a four-star hotel, $800 spending money and an official photo with Neymar. Not only that, but one person at the meet-and-greet with Neymar will be selected at random and play against him heads-up for a trip to the Bahamas for the 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) worth more than $15,000.

Two Ways to Meet Neymar

In total there will be more than $100,000 in prizes on offer in what's being dubbed as the "Neymar Jr Finals" and qualification for the four finales is available now. By navigating through PokerStars' lobby, players will find two ways to get in on the action:

1. Every Wednesday from June 10 until July 29 at 14:00 ET, players can take part in a series of special $1,000 Neymar Jr Freerolls which, as well as money, will reward two randomly chosen tables, as well as 18 players, with tickets for the next Neymar Jr Final. 

To take part in these freerolls, players don't need to make a deposit and simply need an active PokerStars account and the freeroll password. To obtain the necessary password, players need to check out Neymar Jr’s Facebook and Twitter feeds from today.

2. Players can also earn a seat to each Neymar Jr Final by completing ‘Neymar Jr 11 Missions’. Overall, there are four mission periods and in each a player must complete 11 simple tasks in consecutive order to earn a free ticket to the $100,000 Neymar Jr Final ticket. To complete the missions you'll need to make a real money deposit. 

Anyone that's able to earn a ticket to one of the $100,000 Neymar Jr Finals will need to be available to play on the following dates: Thursday, June 18, and July 2, July 16 and July 30 at 13:15 ET. Each final will have a slew of exclusive prizes, including Neymar branded merchandise, and the top three finishers in each tournament will win a prize package to meet Neymar and play at the EPT in Barcelona.
