iPoker is one of the internet’s largest ever and most popular online Poker playing networks. It includes players from all around the world, and enables them to get together to compete in all sorts of Poker related activities, whether Poker tournaments, competitions, promotions, or just plain old recreational gambling.
One of the poker network’s latest extravaganzas is a celebrity studded event that will be part of the much anticipated World Series of Poker (WSOP) tournament taking place this summer. Not only will there be a long list of respected and admirable poker professionals and celebrities taking part, but iPoker will also be offering 21 lucky individuals to play along-side them in the unique chance to test their skills against the best.
Some of the experts and celebs expected to show at iPoker’s celebrity tournament WSOP event include Neil Channing, Marty Smith, Tony Guoga, Scotty Nguyen, Jamie Gold and Montel Williams (a celebrity poker player). There will be a $13,000 bounty placed on the head of each of the celebrity competitors, and the major prize that will be awarded to the final winner will be no less than a whopping $20,000.
The lucky players who will be awarded entry into this starry event will have to first compete head-to-head against one another via their favorite iPoker Network. Some of the most reputable iPoker Network poker rooms include Expekt.com, BoyleSports.com and TitanPoker.com. Most players are expected, however, to compete via the William Hill Poker room website, where there are the most players and the highest quality poker games. The final battle between them will be held at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Casino..
William Hill Poker, one of the world’s most well regarded and popular online poker rooms, has generously decided to host an online poker tournament in the name of charity. This time, the cause which will be given the collected funds will be the No Surrender Charitable Trust, designed to aid people suffering from cancer of the pancreas.
The No Surrender Charitable Trust was founded by Jason Boas, a man who himself was diagnosed with the disease after reaching 33 years of age. A trustee at the organization, Marc Maley, has told reporters that the main goal of No Surrender Charitable Trust is to find fun and exciting ways of raising money for this more than worthy cause. As such, he believes that an online Poker tournament via the William Hill network fits in perfectly with that. He explained that prior to being diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas, Boas was a very competitive person, and creating “synergy” between great games like Poker and the city such as this charity poker tournament would have been something he’d surely love.
Maley also stated that being able to break the current record for an online poker tournament would be another great success of the event. To do this, more than 35,000 players would have to compete for over 9 hours, and 8,750 of them would have to win. Yet being realistic, Maley admitted that even a tenth of this would be more than satisfactory for the organization.
To take part in this worthy event kicking off on June 26th, players will have to buy $30 entry tickets, with rebuys of $20 also available. The total prize pool is expected to reach $30,000, and will be paired with a 2 person getaway to Vegas worth $10,000, including 4 nights at the Bellagio Hotel!
Online casino game tournaments are some of the most profitable platforms for players to increase their bankrolls and enjoy the games, not to mention profitable for the online casinos too. It is quite rare to see these tournaments ever being open to players free of charge, yet one online casino has decided to change up the rules.
During the entire month of June, Golden Casino will be opening its tournament doors to players all over the world without demanding any entry fees. Golden Casino will not only offer one kind of casino tournament for free to players, but will offer literally every single tournament listed without fee! This being at a time of economic recession is sure to attract players and industry representatives alike.
The decision to offer the tournaments for free has not influenced the tournament schedule either; Golden Casino is still providing a full-scale schedule with no less attractive jackpots up for grabs. Players are extremely impressed with the casino’s promotion. According to Walt Bergen, this is the first time in years that he has seen a promotion as generous as this be offered, and he intends to exploit it fully throughout June.
The free tournament craze has already begun at Golden Casino. Each day there are new and exciting tournaments kicking off, and the numbers of players getting on board are increasing rapidly. For anyone new to online casino tournaments, the lack of fees makes this a perfect opportunity to start.
