Play in BetOnline Poker´s 25 Days of Poker promotion, and you could win a share of $25,000 by completing straightforward day-to-day challenges.
BetOnline Poker is offering players the opportunity to take part in a festive promotion which couldn´t be any easier to take advantage of if you already play at the site. All you have to do is play the regular games of poker you would normally play; and, if you complete that day´s challenge by 8:00pm (all times ET), you will be entered into an All-In Shootout at 9:00pm with cash prizes up for grabs.
What´s more is that if you cash among the first twenty-five players in the All-In Shootout, you will also be awarded a ticket to a 25 Days of Poker Main Event on Christmas Day that has a cash prize pool of $10,000. There´s no limit on how many daily All-In Shootouts you can play in, so you could be having a very happy Christmas by December 25th!
How to Take Part in the Promotion
Taking part in the promotion is really easy. Under the freeroll tab in the tournaments lobby, you will see two events listed as the “25 Days of Poker”. Today they are listed as “Event 5” (with it being the fifth day of the promotion) and “Main Event”. If you highlight the “Event 5” tournament, you will see today´s challenge in the bottom right hand corner of the preview pane (“Earn 200 Comp Points”).
Thereafter, all you have to do is carry on playing your normal games of poker until you have completed the challenge. Once you have fulfilled the qualification criteria, you will be awarded an entry into the “Event 5” tournament – which you will need to enter manually before 9:00pm. Because the daily freeroll is an All-In Shootout, there is no need to be logged into your account in order to play the freeroll. Any cash prizes or tournament entry tickets you win will automatically be credited to your account.
If you win a ticket to the 25 Days of Poker Main Event, you also have to enter this event manually. Unlike the daily Shootouts, this is a regular freeroll which you must play if you want to win a prize. The Main Event has a fairly convenient start time of 1:00pm, and because there will be a number of ticket winners who are unable to play in the target event (because of family commitments), it shouldn´t be too difficult to win your share of the generous $10,000 cash prize.
It is important that you check the qualification criteria every time you log into the BetOnline Poker client as it is likely to change from day to day. The prize pool for the daily All-In Shootout events will also change every day, increasing in value as Christmas draws closer. There is no limit to how many daily Shootout events you can qualify for, but the 25 Days of Poker Main Event is a single-entry freezeout and there are no cash alternatives if you win more than one entry ticket.
A Good Time to Play at BetOnline Poker
The 25 Days of Poker promotion is a nice little promotion for the run-up to Christmas, but it is not the only promotion currently running at the site. BetOnline Poker is still running its freeroll casino chip tournaments, and despite the Bad Beat Jackpot having been won last month, the current prize pool has already reached $583,750 – demonstrating the popularity of the promotion.
There are also daily cash race leaderboard competitions and weekly Sit & Go challenges as well as a comprehensive tournament schedule. Furthermore, if you are not yet playing at the site, you have the opportunity to take advantage of a 100% bonus on your first deposit up to $1,000. Full details of the first deposit bonus plus the other benefits of playing at the site can be found in my review.
