3. Complete puzzle to enter the Dream Holiday prize draw

As soon as you’ve collected all four puzzle pieces you'll be automatically registered for the prize draw, where eight lucky winners will walk away with a Dream Holiday.

The prize draw will take place through an All-in Shootout, at 17:45 GMT on October 30, which is a special kind of poker tournament where all players are automatically put all-in on every hand until there’s a winner! This means you don’t actually have to play poker, or even be online, to win.
