If you are a fan of your poker promotions (and we’ve already previewed a few top quality promotions available this February) then the good news is that two of the biggest names in the UK poker scene have announced big new promotions this week.
Sky Poker were first off the mark with their pre-announcement regarding their exciting Viva Las Vegas offer. We’re not sure if it has anything to do with the much-covered Elvis Presley song and film of the same name, but we are certain that this promotion offers the chance to win one of 35 packages to play on The Strip, the neon-lit avenue which is home to Las Vegas biggest and best casinos and hotels.
But first we are going to take a look at the hot-off-the-press news that Bet365 have announced the promotion that is going to supplant the hugely popular Everyone’s A Winner promotion which ran up until the 15th February and if you are a poker and Champions League soccer fan, this new promotion could be right up your street.
Bet365 announces its Champions League-themed Team of Champions promotion
This week, the Champions League swings back into action again after a break over the Christmas and New Year period and the 16 remaining teams will fight it out over the next few months to see who will be crowned Champions of Europe in May 2015.
So to celebrate this big event in the soccer calendar, Bet365 Poker have decided to re-run their popular Team of Champions promotion, which starts today (16th February) and will run for a couple of weeks through until the 2nd March.
This new promotion is easy to enter with just two coins needed to give the participant a chance of winning an iPad Mini 2 and as you progress through the rounds, you get the chance to earn bigger rewards as part of your bonus.
For the promotion, you need to build your team in each round of the competition. You do this by earning coins while playing any type of real cash game on Bet365 Poker. However, you can earn your coins twice as quickly by playing on the Premium Tables. (These Premium Tables can be accessed via the new Bet365 Mobile Poker app).
You collect cards featuring top players from the European Game and for every card you collect you earn one ticket into the Daily £1,500 prize draw, which sees 200 prizes available ranging from an iPad Mini 2 for the winner, down to €2.50 for the tickets drawn 101st to 200th.
There are four stages of the competition and at each stage you need to complete your team of players by collecting enough coins to earn all the players in your team. Complete your team in the Round of 16 and you’ll earn a €1 bonus. For the quarterfinals it is a €5 bonus, the semis sees a €20 and complete your team in the Final and you’ll receive a bonus of €50.
Players must opt in to this promotion by visiting the page on the site outlining the promotion and then clicking on the green “Opt In” button. Once registered all the real cash games that you play on the Bet365 Poker site will count towards this promotion.
Coins are awarded based on how many Merit Points you earn. For almost all Bet365 tables, you get 1 coin for every 2 merit points earned, however if you play on the Premium Tables, you get 1 coin for every merit point earned, making it much easier and quicker to complete your team.
Remember, you do need to be a Bet365 customer to take part in the offer. Check out the latest no deposit Bet365 bonus available by clicking on this link.
Sky Poker reveals early details about its huge Viva Las Vegas promotion
If you are looking for a top quality poker promotion that offers you the chance to play at the spiritual home of tournament poker, then check out Sky Poker’s fantastic Viva Las Vegas promotion.
The first announcement details the type of prizes that are available as part of this exciting offer, which Sky Poker are calling one of their biggest promotions ever. A second announcement will be made on the 26th February 2015 that will give far more detail about how players can attempt to win one of the 35 prize packages available.
There are 30 packages worth £3,200 available plus five packages worth a huge £10,000 available across the total promotion, with all package winners receiving a trip to Las Vegas and a chance to participate in a top poker tournament while in the gambling Mecca.
Both packages will include a number of sundry other items yet to be announced by Sky Poker, as well as an invitation to a special 4th of July party at a prestigious Las Vegas venue. Each package winner will also receive a cash sum towards travel costs and spending money (£1,000 for the £3,200 package winners and £1,500 for the £10,000 package winners).
In addition, the £3,200 package winners will receive a buy in worth $1,111 into a side event at a big Las Vegas poker tournament, while the £10,000 package winner will receive a $10,000 buy in to the big texas no limit’s hold’em main event in the same festival, together with the chance to cash out and earn some mega money.
Yet that’s not all as if you are in Las Vegas and playing on the strip then you’ll need somewhere stylish to stay, which is why £3,200 package winners will receive 7 nights and £10,000 package winners 10 nights, both at the exclusive 5-star rated Palazzo Hotel. The hotel is ideally located to enjoy all the sights and sounds of this famous city.
Further information about how to win a package will be released by Sky Poker on 26th February and we will bring you all the details about the qualifying structure and any further announcements nearer to this time.
