Betfair Poker goes World Cup crazy

Betfair Poker goes World Cup crazy

Friday, 11 June 2010

After all the hype the wait for the World Cup is finally over and Betfair Poker is celebrating by giving away tons of cash in a series of football inspired promotions.

First up is a points chase where players can pocket a $50 or $100 bonus. Earn 6,500 Poker Points between today and 11th July for the $50 bonus or 13,000 Poker Points for the $100 gift. Players have to opt in for either of the bonuses and cannot go for both. Betfair will be giving away $125,000 in the Points Chase.

The second promotion is a Sit n Go 5 a Side Special. Win five Sit n Goes at any buy-in on a single day between today and 11th July and you will gain a seat in a $10,000 guaranteed tournament on Wednesday 14th July.

Rather than grabbing a cup of tea and a biscuit, players can now get some tournament action in during half time of every World Cup match. The top ten finishers in each ultra turbo event will get a seat in the $10,000 guaranteed Closing Ceremony tournament on Monday 12th July. Tournaments will have starting stacks of 300 chips and one minute blinds ensuring a quick finish.

$10,000 will also be given away in a special closing ceremony tournament on 12th July. There's also the added bonus of a weekend package to either Barcelona or Manchester United worth $2,000 on offer to the winner. Buy-in for the event is $10+$1.
