BetFred Poker Launch Summer Tournament SeriesIf poker fans can tear themselves away from the conclusion of the 2009 World Series of Poker then they’re likely to find a number of excellent promotions occurring at their favourite sites, like BetFred’s newest, the Summer Tournament Series.
The BetFred Poker Summer Tournament Series is a massive series already underway at the site and slated to run daily until the end of the season. With buy-ins set as low as 1 cent and a prize pool guaranteed to run at least $43,000 USD in total the tables at BetFred are sure to be buzzing for the next two months. The company will be adding up to $1,500 with every continuing week of the series. Qualifying games run each and every day — the players that earn their way to the top will then be able to compete in a weekly tournament. These tournaments take place every Friday night at 8pm EST, hosting a re-buy format and starting players with 1,500 chips and a minimum 10-chip blind.
All online poker players need to get in on the Summer Tournament Series is an account with BetFred Poker and to follow a few simple steps. New registrants must hold a deposited amount sufficient to cover a buy-in to one of the many BetFred tables then compete in a poker game and accumulate a relatively easy 1,000 points (earned from real-money game actions such as betting, winning hands and so forth).
Wink Bingo Wants to Give Players a Break in New PromoA new month means a slew of new promotions from online gaming companies and Wink Bingo looks to be no exception as they get set to pull in plenty of traffic with their May line-up of rewards. After sparing no expense with the previous two month’s Mini Cooper and Tiffany diamond rewards, Wink is looking to shift gears a little bit and offer up something quite different.
The aforementioned Winktastic bonus for May, the ‘Wink Says Take a Break’ promotion should ensure a lot of interest in the weeks to come. Players at the popular bingo network will compete for the chance to win £3,000 in vacation money, a great prize considering the difficulty that many are having taking any time off from the daily grind during the economic recession. While Wink has previously awarded glittering gems, videogames and other flashy swag, May has now been set as the month for bingo players to go all out toward earning a little time off from the usual nine to five drag.
Aside from the main attraction itself, Wink Bingo has also lined up a great series of auxiliary rewards for devoted fans of the network. Regular games such as the Wink and Pound sign pattern game pump out extra Winktastic points (which can be used for anything from promotions to free merchandise and more) alongside a host of other great bingo-themed games and rewards.
