Anyone else trying the Treasure Hunt on 888 or the CardHunt on Stars?
I think the treasure hunt may be one of the better promotions that 888 has put on in the 6 months or so that I've been on the site, but I'm also disappointed at the prizes thus far. Through 4 days, I won...5 tickets. No cash.
Compare that to Stars where through 4 days I've pocketed $2.25 through four days. And I'm really happy to see Stars opened the challenge up to all tables, not just 5NL.
My real issue on 888 is that my bankroll is only $10 so I'm going to see how I fair there with such a small amount of money.
Anyone else going for rage dollars or tickets??

Compared with Stars promotions right now 888 Poker has the edge 9K daily treasure Hunt free rolls plus Poker Club free rolls and upcoming Whale free roll where you can win a seat to a 500K tourney. Poker stars got rid of the four daily giveaway tournaments on the plus side Amaya brought the deal on over from Full Tilt and now it is hit everyday with an extra $10 a week bankroll. On 888 I have won only 6K tickets so far. The bigger prizes are won when you complete a row/column.

I don't have a bankroll on 888 right now, so I can't comment on their promotion. The one on PokerStars, at least, pays out cash, so that's something I suppose. The promotion on Stars is for (quoting this directly from the information tab in challenge):
"real money Hold'em cash or Zoom games (stakes $0.05/$0.10 or higher; Limit games excluded; minimum three players dealt in a hand)."
So far, I have only won either $0.50 or $1 on the promotion, but it helps to pad the bankroll.

re: Poker & Treasure Hunt on 888 vs CardHunt on Stars
CardHunt is now over on Stars, and I was able to cash $5.20 total. The bigger payday was being up 5X that over the two weeks on the cash tables, so I guess this brought the fish out which I'm not opposed to. Problem is...Stars now has nothing going. Probably because of TCOOP starting tomorrow, but I'm glad they got rid of those 4 tournaments a day. Working a relatively normal day I missed all of them, so had to pin my hopes on the lottery that is the all-in.
888 has been really disappointing thus far. Still only won tickets, and I missed on cashing in a tournament on those days, so I've gotta wait until later this week to take my first row out. Here's hoping.

Update: the first round of the treasure quest concluded, and I ended up cashing $36 on six rows, one daily $5 and one daily $1. Overall I'm disappointed by it mainly because these cash prizes are still subject to bonus restrictions which is a really sneaky way of getting you to play more. I feel bad for anyone who hit the top prizes...there must be a way to cash out.
Second one is underway and thus far I've missed the two tournament cashes. I find I don't have the time to properly devote to a tournament, but did get lucky on the steps last night.
SpinBall I think might be one of Stars' better deals, other than the crappy payouts. 12 spins can score basically the challenge unless you get unlucky on the 4X or higher multipliers. Anyone else in the spinball game?
