- There is some confusion as to what and when of stamps.
Here is the breakdown on the stamps with sweet HUGE images.
GIN RUMMY PENTATHLON '08 STAMP
This here is the Gin Rummy stamp. It's a tough stamps to win due to the fact that it requires your skill to dominate opponents. What you need to do to earn this beauty is defeat your opponent via shut out. You must complete a WHOLE Game and not just a hand. Not easy to do. To quote a famous on-screen philosopher .
"Look, good against remotes is one thing. Good against the living? That's something else."

HEARTS PENTATHLON '08 STAMP
The Hearts Pentathlon stamps is a tricky one. All you need to do is win a full match of hearts and have the lowest score. It is much easier said than done. I for one could not win this one. Since August 8th over 2,500 people have won this stamp. It is surely possible to achieve!
(Bonus: Can you name an alternative name to the game hearts?)
TRIPEAKS SOLITAIRE PENTATHLON '08 STAMP
The TriPeaks Stamps is a cumulative stamp that requires you win fifty hands of TriPeaks. This stamp has caused the most confusion for sure. You must win 50 games SINCE THE START of the Pentathlon. The Pentathlon started on August 8th and you need to have won fifty games since then. I know it was a bit confusing but that is how it goes. Since the start of the Pentathlon it has been awarded over 3,000 times.
SLOTS LOUNGE PENTATHLON '08 STAMP
This is the most straight forward of our stamps. You spin and win in 'Star & Bars' Go head go in there and SPIN AWAY! It's not easy and can take some time. Let me tell you, when you hit those jackpots it sure is exciting to get something for it!
VIDEO POKER PENTATHLON '08 STAMP
Similar to the Slots Lounge stamp the Video Poker Online stamp is an older stamp that we're using for the Pentathlon 2008. This stamp is awarded when you hit a Royal Flush the 'Jacks or Better' game. This stamps is the toughest to score so far. It have only been awarded just over 1,000 times.
