There’s a lot of action to be had on the online felts in the month of May and 888poker is doing their part by giving their players more than $25,000,000 in total tournament prizes to play for.
The online site is running an abundance of promotions and big-time tournaments that will provide both online grinders and recreational players a reason to log on.
One of 888poker’s most popular promotions returns in May with the return of the Sunday Sale. The Sunday Sale allows players to take a shot in some of 888poker’s biggest tournaments of the week for half the price. The real value comes with the fact that even though the buy-in is cut in half, the guarantee stays the same.
This includes a $55 price tag for the popular $100,000 Mega Deep. The high rollers will see the $320 price tag on the $20,000 Whale reduced to just $160. Also, the $15,000 Monsoon drops into the mid-stakes with a $27.50 buy-in.
To find all of the Sunday Sale opportunities, fire up the client and click on the Tournament Tab.
Enter The Dragon
One of the biggest tournaments currently taking place on 888poker is the new multi-flight event – The Dragon. In fact, there are actually two tournaments in series: the $55 buy-in $50,000 guaranteed Dragon and the more affordable $12 buy-in, $30,000 guaranteed Mini Dragon.
Both of the Dragon tournaments have Day 1 flights running every day of the week from Sunday through Friday. Then, on Saturdays, those who build a stack in the opening flights reconvene for Day 2 to play down to that week’s winner.
Both The Dragon and the Mini Dragon have been pulling in big fields so far with the $55 Dragon routinely paying out five-figures for first place. The Mini Dragon is helping small stakes player turn their $12 into huge paydays the majority of the final table will typically walk away with more and 100x their initial investment.
In order to help players participate in the weekly Dragon tournaments, 888poker has direct satellites into Day 1 flights. The satellites, which run every day, all guarantee seats. Players can register for a satellite for as little as $0.50 to get into the Mini Dragon and just $2.20 for the Dragon. In classic 888poker style, super satellites for the series start at just $0.10.
The Freerolls Continue
What started back in March continues through the month of May as the Galaxy of Freerolls rolls on.
