For its many unique innovations in online poker, like PokerCam tables, 888 Poker has won the EGR Award for Best Poker Operator of the Year for 2011. In celebration of this honor, the site is awarded its players two special gifts of thanks. One is a freeroll tournament with a $3,000 prize pool guaranteed and the other is an instant $10 bonus.
The 888 Poker $3,000 Thank U Freeroll tournament takes place on Thursday, December 29, 2011 (that’s tomorrow) at 19:00 GMT. There are no special registration requirements or conditions, but you may want to register as soon as possible, since the site is capping the player pool for this event at 6,000 players.
There’s a little more time to redeem the $10 instant bonus. For that, you have til January 2, 2012, during which time all you have to do is make a deposit of at least $50 into your real money 888 Poker account using the bonus code: EGR888 and you’ll instantly get your $10 bonus.
The bonus must be played through at least 40 times before it can be withdrawn as cash. And it is only valid for games at 888 Poker, not 888 Casino or 888 Sports.
This bonus is only valid for existing 888 Poker members who have already made at least one deposit into their real money account previously. New members are ineligible for this promotion. New members can, however, participate in the $3,000 Thank U Freeroll tournament. And the current welcome bonus for new 888 Poker members is $400.
