    Which one of these usages is correct please?

    1- But please, donít let that stop you from enjoying a game that I know youíll love once you start digging into it.

    2- But please, donít let that stop you from enjoying a game that I know youíll love once you start digging into.

    Is "it" required in such a case? If so, could you provide me with at least one more example please? Thank you in advance.

    Hi
    Not a teacher opinion.
    I think that it is not required here. As the context is clear.

    thanks
    good luck

    Thank you for the help. May I also get a teacher's opinion about this?

    "it" would be wrong here.
    Compare:
    This is a game that I'm sure you'll enjoy playing [*it].
    The relative clause "that I'm sure you'll enjoy playing" already contains the referent for 'game' - 'that'.

    So it's not simply not necessary. It's incorrect.
    Here is a book that you'll love reading [*it].
    Note also that if 'that' is left out, it's still implicitly there:
    Here is a book you'll love reading [*it].
