This weekend just got a little bit brighter for online poker players. The now legendary Sunday Sale at 888poker is back and gives those players the chance at massive prize pools at a decent discount.
This Sunday, January 24, 888poker is hosting their usual assortment of tournaments but have cut the buy-in by 50% on three of the marquee events – all while keeping the guarantees the same as previous weeks.
Things get underway at 16:30 GMT with the $20,000 guaranteed Monsoon. Instead of the normal $55 buy-in, grinders can get in on the action for just $27.50. Action starts with 50,000 chips and will play 12 minute levels. Players can rebuy up to three times in the first 3.5 hours of play.
The Mega Deep could be the best value of all. Offering the biggest guarantee of the Sunday Sale tournaments at $100,000, the Mega Deep buy-in is just $55 this week instead of the usual $109. Action starts at 19:00 GMT and players are given a 50,000 starting stack with 12 minute levels. Players can rebuy up to five times in the first 3.5 hours of play.
Wrapping up the hat trick of savings, the $30,000 guaranteed Whale has a $215 buy-in and starts at 20:00 GMT. Once again, players will all start with 50,000 chips and will play 12 minute levels. Players can rebuy up to three times in the first 3.5 hours of play.
Sunday Sale Satellites for a Cent
For players whose bankroll still can’t afford the discount, 888poker offers an extensive satellite program for all three tournaments with buy-ins starting at – wait for it – just a penny.
Dubbed the Pennybuy, the 1¢ buy-in events run daily and offer guaranteed seats to the $2.20 buy-in satellite which then guarantees between five and ten seats to the Sunday Mega Deep. Players can rebuy as many times as they want for 5¢ and can add-on up to three times for 20¢.
Other satellites are available with buy-ins of 2¢ up to $16.50 giving players multiple opportunities to qualify no matter what their bankroll is.
