The autumn months are usually pretty slow ones for poker players, but this year Paddy Power Poker hopes to change this trend with its Irish Winter Festival 2012.

Winners will receive 35 of the 40 seats on offer for the three day long main event kicking off on the following day. The main event begins on 27th October, featuring a €1,125 buy-in for those who haven’t already won their seats. The same day will host a six-handed no limit hold ‘em freezeout (€135 buy-in) in the afternoon and a turbo variation later in the evening (€55 buy-in). The following day comes with a two day no limit hold ‘em freezeout (€335 buy-in), a two day pot limit Omaha tournament (€225 buy-in) and a doubles no limit hold’ em competition (€55 buy-in per person). The last day of the Festival (29th October) will see the conclusion of the multi-day events along with another no limit hold ‘em freezeout (€115 buy-in) and the €115 Irish Mythical Championship.

To make it easier for Paddy Power Poker members to get involved with the Festival, the site is offering weekly, Sunday night super satellites that award talented players with entry to the series’ main event.

Ladbrokes Bingo Player Wins Big with £1.3 Million Jackpot

Ladbrokes Bingo has just changed one woman’s life by awarding her a massive sum of money through a recently triggered jackpot. The winner has set records by taking home one of the largest online bingo prizes in recent years.

The woman in question, Lisa Potter, lives in Witney in Oxfordshire and hit the enormous jackpot during a seemingly normal evening. Potter, 33, took a break from watching the Euro 2012 match between Spain and Ireland with her partner, Terry Goodman, to play a game of bingo at Ladbrokes.

Potter, a mother of three, remembers that “as soon as I saw the size of the jackpot I thought it worth a go and I couldn’t believe my eyes when it said that I’d won. My kids came into the room and we all started screaming.” Potter plans to use some of her winnings to purchase a new house and car for her family before planning out a luxury holiday.

Ladbrokes Bingo’s Alex Donohue told press that Potter’s win is “one of the biggest of all time” and that his company is “absolutely over the moon for her.” The £1.3 million won by Lisa Potter is the third largest cash prize awarded in the history of bingo. Ladbrokes’ jackpot also represents the biggest payout for the style of game played by Potter in the last three years.
