Carbon Poker Mega Million for August

Last Updated on

Aussie MillionsCarbon Poker brings back their Mega Million promotion for August 2010. Part rake race, part rake chase the Mega Million sports cash payouts for attaining certain point levels. The twist is that there are a limited number of cash payouts at each level. So there is a race element as well as a leveling up component. This promotion will primarily attract the cash game player or maybe high volume SNG players.

Carbon Poker appears to be making a big push. They really want your business. In subsequent days we will be unveiling at least two more promotions from Carbon Poker. Couple that with their new Celebrity spokesperson Shannon Elizabeth, and they bear watching. The guaranteed tournament schedule is also much improved and our next promo from them will be a tournament promotion.

Mega Million: $1,000,000 in Cash Prizes
Back by popular demand is CarbonPoker’s biggest ever cash giveaway! During August, you have a shot to race your way to over $25,000 cash. With more than 12,500 individual prizes and a total prizepool of $1,000,000 in real cash, there is no better place to win free cash.

Carbon will automatically track your VIP Points that you earn between August 1 – 31. Each point you earn moves you up through 15 levels of cash prizes. As you go from level to level, you win more and more cash.

This is a race, after all, so there are limited prizes at each level. Speed your way through all 15 tiers to win over $25,000 in real cash. Prizes will be paid in real time, so as soon as you win it, you get it!

Win over $25,000 Cash
Over $1,000,000 in Cash Prizes to be Won!
Over 12,500 Cash Prizes to be awarded!

Carbon Poker Snakes and Ladders

Last Updated on

Carbon Poker introduces Snakes and ladders. A cute name for sit and go steps. The rationalization of the name is that you either climb the ladder or you snake down to a lower position. As far as I can tell, these tournaments are exclusive to Carbon Poker on the network. Carbon appears ready to make noise of its own with the signing of Shannon Elizabeth to play poker for them.

‘Snakes and Ladders’ are a special type of tiered sit’n’go where players can win up to $2,000 cash for as little as $1.10 or 110 VIP points.

There are 7 levels to the ‘Snakes and Ladders’ sng’s and even if you don’t advance to the next level in a particular Step sng, you can still win a chance to play the same level again, or one below. You also have the choice to buy-in directly at any of the 7 levels, or jump off the ladder and into Carbon’s satellite tournaments using the Step 3 coupon.

To register for Steps tournaments, click on the tabs: Tournaments » Sng » Satellites.

Here is an easy to follow image that gives you a much better idea of how to climb the ladders and where you might snake down to.

Win a Lamborghini from PokerStars for Free!

Last Updated on

PokerStars has a new promotion that will award a Lamborghini Gallardo to the winner. The best part is that it is free to enter. Every day starting July 25, 2010 Pokerstars will be running 24 freerolls that award entries to a weekly qualifier. Well they say 24 freerolls a day yet the chart below says they run every 2 hours. You do the math. We probably will have to wait and see on July 25, 2010.

The top 2,000 players in the weekly finals get into the Grand Final. I know, it sounds like a longshot, but here is the other shoe. The weekly finals will have $100,000 prize pools! There is a buyin path to these weekly finals for those wishing to avoid the crowds. Granted, with freerolls every hour and buyins every two hours, the Weekly finals will be a bit congested, but it is a $100,000 tournament, after all. Post in this thread about your progress in these games each week. Holdem Poker Chat wants to know how everyone does.

Win a Lamborghini Gallardo!
It’s the ride of choice for rock gods, sports stars and fashion royalty, and now you can own one too. Play the Pokerstars Lamborghini Freeroll and you can win your very own $200,000 supercar. Tournaments are running now and there’s more than $1,000,000 in cash up for grabs along the way. The Lamborghini Gallardo is one of the most famous and iconic cars in the world – win yours now!

There are 24 freeroll qualifiers running daily, plus $1.10 and $11 cash satellites. Qualify for a Weekly Final and you’re one step away from the Grand Final, where the Gallardo goes to the winner. But that’s not all. Each Weekly Final has a $100,000 prize pool, and the Grand Final has an incredible $250,000 in cash to be won.

This is one of the biggest prizes Pokerstars has awarded, and the tournaments are perfect for new and existing players alike. If you haven’t played at the world’s largest poker site yet, now is a great time to get started. It’s easy to download Pokerstars free poker software and open an account. Simply follow the onscreen instructions to register, and you can also take the Virtual Tour which shows you all of the great features.

Full Tilt Poker Rush Week July 12-18 2010

Last Updated on

Full Tilt Poker announces Rush Week coming up July 12-18 2010. There will be cash awards for accumulating poker points at Rush poker tables. Also, many of Full Tilt Poker’s tournaments will be Rush for this week. I know the Daily Dollar at 20:15 will be one of the Rush Poker tournaments. They intend to increase the number and frequency of Rush Poker tournaments across the board as well. Final table one of these and you can get into a pretty big freeroll as well.

Seven Days of Speed at Full Tilt Poker
Experience the blistering pace and intensity of Rush Poker*, the world’s fastest poker game, to earn up to $250 in cash and win free entry to an exclusive $50K Rush Week Freeroll.

Running from Monday, July 12th to Sunday, July 18th, Rush Week offers even more reasons to play Rush Poker*. Accumulate enough Full Tilt Points by playing Rush Poker* ring games and tournaments during Rush Week and you could earn up to $250 in cash. In addition, all Rush Poker* Tournament final table players will receive entry into the exclusive $50K Rush Week Freeroll.

Many of our guarantee tournaments will be converted to Rush Poker* Tournaments for the duration of Rush Week, culminating with the $1 Million Monthly Guarantee.

Earn up to $250
Playing Rush Poker* is the fastest way to earn Full Tilt Points – the more you play during Rush Week, the more you’ll earn. Accumulate enough points from Rush Poker* ring games and tournaments on at least four days to earn your cash reward. Reach your reward level on all seven days to double your cash.
There are three Rush Week reward levels – strike Gold for your $250 payday:

Bronze (10 Full Tilt Points)
Earn at least 10 Full Tilt Points per day on any four days to receive $5
Earn at least 10 Full Tilt Points per day on all seven days to receive $10

Silver (100 Full Tilt Points):
Earn at least 100 Full Tilt Points per day on any four days to receive $25
Earn at least 100 Full Tilt Points per day on all seven days to receive $50

Gold (1,000 Full Tilt Points):
Earn at least 1,000 Full Tilt Points per day on any four days to receive $125
Earn at least 1,000 Full Tilt Points per day on all seven days to receive $250

If you achieve more than one of these reward levels, you will receive your highest possible cash amount only – the rewards are not cumulative.

For example, if you earn Bronze level on all seven days, and reach Silver on four of those days, you will receive a $25 Silver reward only – this amount is higher than either of the Bronze rewards. Likewise, earn 1,000 Full Tilt Points on all seven days and you’ll receive a $250 Gold reward only.

For more information on Rush Week rewards, please see the Rush Week Rules.

$50K Rush Week Freeroll
Win your seat to the exclusive $50K Rush Week Freeroll at 15:15 ET on Sunday, July 25th, by reaching the final table in a Rush Poker* Tournament during Rush Week.

Extra Rush Poker* Tournaments have been scheduled for Rush Week, with a number of our regular guarantee tournaments being played in Rush Poker* format.
