Bovada Poker has just launched a new promotion called Mission Sit ‘n’ Go, awarding seats in a private $2,000 GTD tournament and as much as $120 in individual bonuses.
The Bovada Poker Mission Sit ‘n’ Go promotion centers on two separate missions each participating player must complete, both involving Sit ‘n’ Go tournaments at the site.
Mission I runs from September 17 to 30 and assigns players the objective of playing in 2 nine-handed Sit ‘n’ Go tourneys, 1 six-handed Sit ‘n’ Go tourney, and 1 heads-up Sit ‘n’ Go.
Mission II runs from October 1 to 14 and assigns players the objective of playing in 2 beginner or regular Sit ‘n’ Go tourneys, 1 turbo or hyper turbo Sit ‘n’ Go tourney and 1 double up or triple up Sit ‘n’ Go tourney.
Complete either or both missions as often as you like: the more the better for you, as each completion earns you entry into one of two drawings for the prize of a private $2K guaranteed tournament. As a private tournament you will be able to invite up to eight other players of your choosing to sit in with you for that prize pool.
What’s more, there are also individual bonuses available to players for earning a requisite number of poker points during the promotion:
• 50 Poker Points in a week gets you a $10 bonus
• 75 Poker Points in a week gets you a $15 bonus
• 150 Poker Points in a week gets you a $30 bonus
On November 7, 2011, Party Poker launched its Winter Million promotion, an opportunity that spans the New Year and gives players a shot at part of a guaranteed $1 million prize pool at the promotion’s end on February 5, 2012. And the best part of all is that players can land themselves a seat in this million dollar event for as little as $1.
There are almost as many ways to enter the Party Poker Winter Million as there are ways to enjoy Winter, with five different qualifying structures players can choose from.
In one qualification structure, players choose between a $2 Winter Million Sub Qualifier Speed Rebuy and an $8 Winter Million Sub Qualifier Speed event, both of which seed players into a $70 Winter Million Qualifier, which awards one player in ten seats in the Winter Million $1,000,000 Guaranteed.
In another qualification structure, players start in a $1 Winter Million Sub Qualifier Speed Rebuy that seeds players into a $27 Winter Million Rebuy Qualifier which in turn sends one player to the Winter Million $1,000,000 Guaranteed for every $640 in the prize pool.
The direct buy-in for the Party Poker Winter Million $1,000,000 Guaranteed is $640. The event starts at 1:30 pm ET and utilizes a Championship blind structure.
There’s even a choice of Daily Country Specific Freerolls and Daily Player Points Qualifiers to enter, both of which lead to a Friday Winter Million Special, an event with no direct buy-in and that awards 5 seats guaranteed in the Party Poker Winter Million Guaranteed.
PartyPoker is one of the leading online poker rooms. It belongs to PartyGaming, which has recently joined up with Bwin. PartyPoker is licensed and regulated by the Government of Gibraltar. PartyPoker offers an exciting range of promotions for its players. Some of the promotions are standard and are carried forward from month to month. But the more interesting promotions are the topical ones.
WSOP, the biggest land poker extravaganza begins on May 31 in Las Vegas with the Main Event taking place in June. Some of the May promotions at PartyPoker offer WSOP packages. The WSOP 2011 promotion runs right through May. The prizes are $14,000 WSOP packages that include $10,000 WSOP Main Event buy-in, $2,000 spending money and eight nights’ hotel accommodation. In this promotion PartyPoker players can enter through a daily freeroll tournament and work their way up to the WSOP Satellite in which 1 out of 20 players will be given WSOP packages.
The Gladiator is an exciting promotion that runs from May 1 to May 31. PartyPoker has declared different levels of daily targets for loyalty points earned and has designated prizes for players achieving the targets. The prizes are in the form of freeroll tournaments with prize pools ranging from $2,500 to $25,000. Players who earn 1,200 points on each of 30 days will get the grand prize of a WSOP package.
One of the most popular online tournaments at PartyPoker this May will be the $250K Guaranteed Sunday. It will be held every Sunday at 12:45 hours ET. The tournament offers a guaranteed prize pool of $250,000. Players can directly register for the event by paying the buy in of $215. But most PartyPoker players will win entries through a series of low priced qualifiers, some of which are even freerolls. One of the qualifying promotions is the 50 Seat Frenzy, which guarantees 50 seats to the $250K Guaranteed Sunday. The direct buy in for this event is $15. However, there are two qualifiers, one of which is a country specific freeroll and the other is a $2 buy in Saturday morning event.
There are a large number of newbie players at PartyPoker. Especially for them PartyPoker offers a number of freerolls in which they play for free but win cash prizes. In May the combined prize pool of all such freeroll tournaments offered is over $20,000. A large number of these are country specific freerolls, in which players compete with others from the same region. However, the best freeroll promotion is the $1.5K New Player Freeroll. It will be held every Saturday in May. Each event will be capped at 5,000 players and the eligibility criterion is that the player must have made his first deposit in the 60 days before the start of the tournament.
Poker tournaments are not the only promotional events in May. New players are entitled to a 100% welcome bonus up to $/£/€ 500 on their first deposit. Regular players can earn loyalty points called PartyPoints for participating in cash games and tournaments. PartyPoints can then be redeemed for cash.
