Pick Up A Pair And Win Your Share Of €400,000 At Bet365 Poker’s Spring Festival

April 20, 2017

At the moment, Bet365 Poker players are taking on the latest missions challenge called Premium Suits and by all accounts, the promotion is progressing as well and as popularly as the many other missions-themed promotions that have preceded it. So if you fancy taking part in this why not claim your Bet365 no deposit bonus now and sign up by following the link?

However, the one issue people may have with the Premium Suits offer is that its aimed squarely at players who enjoy cash table games only. Indeed, you can only collect your Premium Suits cards playing at selected cash game tables on Bet365 Poker. While that is fine for these players, it does leave those who enjoy tournament poker a little out in the cold.

Or rather it did, because now Bet365 Poker have released another promotion which started on Monday 17th April and which will progress through until Sunday 7th May. It is the Spring Festival and there is a staggering €400,000 available to be won across a total of 40 outstanding poker tournaments.

Let us now learn a little more about how you can participate in any of these top tournaments and how the promotion will progress.

The Bet365 €400,000 Spring Festival Poker Promotion

Although the start date of this promotion is listed as Monday 17th April, that is because this is the date that the satellite tournaments for players to play their way into some of the bigger buy in events in the Festival go live on the Bet365 Poker client software. You have 11 days from the 17th to play in Satellites to earn a place at some of the bigger events, as the actual Festival tournaments themselves begin on Friday 28th April.

It is through these satellites that players at Bet365 Poker will be able to enter the tournament for a small buy in price and then play their way through the satellites until they finish in one of the prize positions in the final satellite, earning themselves a cut-price ticket into one of the bigger buy in events in the Spring Festival. There is at least one €50 buy in or greater event held each night of the promotion, so there are plenty of opportunities to satellite into these events.

These bigger value events have some of the biggest prize money of the entire festival on offer including a €50,000 and a separate €100,000 event. Each night of the promotion there are four big tournaments taking place with a range of buy ins starting at just €10, which means that this is a promotion that likely all Bet365 Poker players can afford to participate in.

The tournaments start on Friday 28th April and over the next ten days there are four tournaments per evening available to play in, each with different buy in levels and different prize money available.

How are the Spring Festival tournaments organised?

On each of the ten nights when there are tournaments to play in, there are usually three lower priced events you can play in. The buy in to these events is either €10 or €20 and alongside this trio of events there is usually one higher priced tournament. The buy ins for these range from €50 to €200 and these are the events that are generally available for you to satellite into.

One thing to note is that the starting time for these tournament changes on a Sunday compared to the rest of the week. From Monday through to Saturday, the four evening tournaments will always start at the same four times: 18:30, 19:00, 19:30 and 20:00. However, on Sunday’s the action starts at 18:00 with the other events starting at 18:30, 19:00 and 20:00. It is also worth noting that the two Sunday evenings at 18:00 is when the two biggest prize pool tournaments will be contested.

Speaking of the top tournaments in the Spring Festival, we have outlined below a list of the top events in the festival, which have the best prize money available, the days these events are contested, the buy in and the time that each tournament starts.

Are the smaller buy in events offering the smaller prize pools?

Actually no they aren’t. Most of the smaller buy in events offer the smaller prizes but there are a significant number where you can buy in for smaller amounts and still play for a prize pool of around €10,000.

What Bet365 have done well with this promotion is mix up the prize pool on offer for each tournament with different sized buy ins. So there are events where you can buy in for say €50 buy play for a prize pool of say €5,000. But there are also events where your €10 buy in can see you playing for €7,500 or even €10,000 and there is one €20 buy in event on the final evening which sees you playing for a share of €20,000.

Satellites for the bigger buy in events, many of which are listed above, are available to play in right now at Bet365 Poker. Simply load up the client software on your desktop, mobile or tablet and head over to the Tournaments section and click on Satellites and you will find a list of available satellites you can buy into to try and play your way into the bigger events at a fraction of the cost.

Who knows, maybe there could be a spring in your step if you are one of the bigger prize winners at Bet365’s Spring Festival.
