Paddy Power Poker Launches Irish Winter Festival Mega Satellite

One of the poker world's most exciting upcoming events is the rapidly approaching Irish Winter Festival. Paddy Power Poker wants to help get some of its most talented members to the Festival's main event by offering up a satellite tournament that provides fantastic rewards.

The 2012 Irish Winter Festival will bring some of the game's best players to Dublin in order to compete for a shot at winning cash prizes and a bit of international recognition. Paddy Power Poker members without the bankroll to pay for the main event's €1,125 direct buy-in are able to sign up for the site's upcoming Irish Winter Festival Mega Satellite to enter. A total of twenty prize packages (valued at €1,800) are available through the no limit hold 'em Mega Satellite. These packages include buy-in to the Festival's main event, four nights of accommodations in Dublin and €329 in travel money. Along with the substantial prize, satellite winners will also be entered into Paddy's Six Survivor promotion (and a chance at earning themselves a buy-in to the 2013 Irish Open). To enter, Paddy Poker players can either attempt to qualify through daily sit and go turbo and daily feeder games or pay €192 for a guaranteed spot at the virtual tables.

The 2012 Irish Winter Festival is scheduled to begin on Friday, 26th October and will take place at Dublin, Ireland's Burlington Hotel while Paddy Power Poker's Irish Winter Festival Mega Satellite is set for Sunday, 14th October.

Paddy Power Poker Launches Irish Open 2012 Mega Satellite

Paddy Power Poker continues to help promote the rapidly approaching Irish Open 2012 with satellite tournaments designed to provide the site’s most talented members with access to the real-world event. The company’s latest effort takes the form of a massive qualifier that comes complete with lavish prize packages and, of course, seats to the Irish Open.

The enormous no-limit hold’em freezout satellite will take place on Sunday, 18th March and feature a €320 buy-in. For players with less money to spare, Paddy Power has created a number of feeder tournaments that will also provide entry to the main satellite without requiring as much of a financial commitment. Satellite winners will receive a seat at the Irish Open’s main event (a prize worth €3500 on its own) as well as €655 in cash and accommodations at The Burlington Hotel for five nights. If that isn’t enough, those who qualify will be given access to Paddy’s Sole Survivor, the chance to take home extra prize money and a €100,000 cash reward as well.

Patrick “Paddy” Power himself released a statement to the press that detailed the qualifier, touting it as “your best chance to qualify for the prestigious Irish Open 2012” and, considering the scope of the prize and exclusivity of the event, he doesn’t seem to be exaggerating. Irish Open 2012 will be held at The Burlington Hotel in Dublin, Ireland from 6th to 9th April, 2012.

Paddy Power Poker Launches Cheap Seats Promotion

Paddy Power Poker continues to help promote the much anticipated Irish Open 2012 by providing great ways for its fans to attend the event itself. The newest promotion, Cheap Seats, will consist of a set of tournaments with low buy-ins and fantastic prize packages.
                Cheap Seats is scheduled to take place as a pair of reoccurring nightly tournaments that will reward the best competitors with seats into the Irish Open 2012. Both of the daily tournaments are set to have €4 buy-ins and will be no-limit hold ‘em style with re-buys allowed. Each night of the promotion will see Cheap Seats tournaments taking place in the evening (at 7.30pm and 9.30pm), offering two opportunities for eager players to gain entry to the Irish Open. The aforementioned prize packages will provide seats at the Irish Open 2012 grand finals — a prize worth some €3,500 and unavailable through direct buy-in.
                Paddy Power Poker, impressed with the popularity of last year’s Cheap Seats promotion, decided to bring them back for 2012. A statement detailing the special tournaments described Paddy Power’s goal of making “it possible for the more casual poker player to win a seat into one of the most prestigious poker tournaments in Europe.” For competitors hoping to grab a lucky break in the world of professional poker Cheap Seats is not to be missed.

Paddy Power Poker Hosts Irish Open 2012 Qualifiers

Paddy Power Poker continues to promote the upcoming Irish Open 2012 with great events that look to give its members entry to the series. Its new online qualifiers will allow some of the best players to win their way into the venerable series, regardless of the size of their bankroll.

The Irish Open 2012 is fast approaching and Paddy Power Poker members interested in competing should take note of the site’s qualifiers. Weekly online qualifiers are now set to take place each Monday night with buy-ins set at €27.50. These events will take the form of no-limit hold’em re-buy games that provide each winner with a fantastic prize package. Paddy Power’s Irish Open packages are valued at €3,500 and come with access to the 2012 series and the opportunity to compete in its $100,000 Sole Survivor endurance games. If that wasn’t enough, the first edition of the weekly qualifier also gave its winner a €550 seat into Thursday, 8th December’s Irish Christmas Poker Festival at Cork’s Macau Poker Club.

Paddy Power Poker’s Irish Open 2012 qualifiers opened on Monday, 5th December and will continue to be offered for the foreseeable future. Paddy Power Poker’s press release spoke of the company’s desire to continue its tradition of “[offering] a variety of Irish Open satellites to suit all types of pockets” and encouraged its members by mentioning how last year’s “champion Niall Smyth was new to the poker scene and went on to win €650,000 in the Irish Open.” The Irish Open 2012 will take place next April.

Paddy Power Launches 2011 WSOP Promotion to Support Eoghan O’Dea

Paddy Power Poker has always sought to celebrate Ireland, its base of operations, through special promotions and the recognition of noted Irish players. The internet poker company looks to continue this trend now by giving its players the opportunity to show their support for one of the country’s young, rising stars: Eoghan O’Dea.

O’Dea is fast becoming a poker player worth watching and, of course, he hasn’t escaped Paddy Power Poker’s notice. Having recently signed a sponsorship deal with Paddy Power, O’Dea is now getting ready to prove himself at the 2011 World Series of Poker (WSOP) finals in Las Vegas, Nevada and the site wants to help send nine of its members to the event to cheer him on. The promotion, called November 9ers, will run for seven consecutive weeks of $215 buy-in no-limit hold’em freeze out super satellites, beginning this week and awarding every one of the winners with a fantastic prize package. Paddy Power members can get into one of the satellites by competing in daily competitions or holding out for a (not yet dated) sit and go race or “casino challenge” that will reward two more packages. The nine winners will be provided with a full week of accommodations at Las Vegas’ Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino, $1,000 in cash, entry to the WSOP main event and free airfare.

Paddy Power Poker described November 9ers as “[the] trip of a lifetime” and a great way to congratulate Eoghan O’Dea, “an inspirational young Irish player . . . who has done us all proud.”

Paddy Power Takes Odds on Full Tilt Poker’s Future

Not being one to shy away from controversy, Paddy Power’s sports betting service has just finished hosting an unorthodox wagering opportunity for its fans to take part in. Centred on the British government’s decision on the future of Full Tilt Poker’s UK operating license, the site took bets on whether or not the well known poker platform would be able to resume business.

Paddy Power members are already provided with a wide array of betting opportunities but, refusing to sit on the sidelines of a large industry event, the company opened its books to accept wagers on the Alderney Gambling Control Commission’s licensing decision. Full Tilt Poker was ordered to halt service offerings in June, meaning that no cash poker games could be held for members of its site until the Gambling Control Commission reached a decision. Paddy set 9/2 odds on a positive outcome and 1/8 odds on Full Tilt Poker being forced to close up shop. As the numbers reflect, Paddy Power wasn’t predicting anything good for Full Tilt fans. In order to console them the company has announced that Paddy Power Poker will completely match all sportsbooking stakes, allowing that money to carry over as bonus funds for Paddy poker players.

It’s obvious that Paddy Power is looking to take advantage of a bad situation and make something better out of it for both online poker fans and its own company. Regardless of whether Full Tilt Poker re-opens or is forced to shut down, Paddy Power punters are sure to benefit from the latest set of industry problems.

Paddy Power Poker Announces Upcoming Green Card Promotion

Paddy Power Poker has embraced the excitement of the summer poker season with a brand new promotion aimed at giving back to its most loyal fans. The forthcoming Green Card promotion will start at the beginning of next month and carry on into the fall, giving site members plenty of reasons to compete at Paddy’s virtual tables.

Green Card comes packed with a number of excellent prizes for players to compete for. The promotion takes the form of a loyalty points race, Paddy Power Poker members automatically becoming a “Green Card player” after accumulating at least 40,000 points within the space of a single month (current Black Card holders can receive Green Card status by emailing photographic proof of their membership and maintaining a minimum points balance for the following week). Once players have grabbed their Green Card they will receive twenty percent off at the site’s store and Paddy swag that includes a branded hoodie and personalized card. Better yet, Green Card members are provided with a complementary, £50 wager, entry to weekly $1000 freerolls and a token for a $50 satellite game as well.

As if that wasn’t enough, Green Card players that maintain their status for the entire three months of the promotion will receive an iPad2. The iPad2 will also be given to players that average 120,000 (or more) Paddy Points for 90 days after gaining Green Card status. Paddy Power Poker’s Green Card promo is set to kick off on 1st August and will continue for three full months following its launch.

Paddy Power Poker Announces Live Video Stream for Irish Open 2011

Ireland’s foremost online poker network, Paddy Power Poker, has announced that it will be giving the Irish Open 2011 extensive coverage through its website when the event kicks off at the end of April. The influential gaming platform has plans to stream almost all of the competition, complete with professional hosting and commentary.

Paddy Power Poker is one of the Irish Open’s top supporters and is going to help boost the coverage of the series by kicking off live, streaming video beginning at the Friday night premiere. Jessie May, working from a studio located in the centre of the Open’s Dublin venue, will be conducting interviews and acting as host while an entire team of reporters work to canvas the rest of the action occurring at the Burlington Hotel. Paddy Power has also detailed its inclusion of social media interactions being a part of the event, enabling both players and spectators to discuss each game as it’s actually being played out.

Along with great televised coverage, Paddy Power players will also be able to take advantage of several promotions — like daily iPad-based freerolls, reload bonuses and more — that are planned to be launched throughout the Irish Open’s schedule. This year’s Irish Open will be held at downtown Dublin’s Burlington Hotel, taking place from Friday, 22nd to Monday, 25th April.

Paddy Power Poker Offers Up Seats for Irish Open 2011

Ireland’s favourite online poker service, Paddy Power Poker, is helping its fans to join in with the nation’s biggest live poker tournament — the Irish Open 2011. Paddy Power is setting up a great set of opportunities for talented members of its site to win their way into the Open, offering 30 seats to the upcoming tournament series.

The Irish Open 2011 Mega Satellite promotion will be open for entry beginning on the evening of 3rd April, 2011 and will offer up 30 prize packages (each valued at €4,600) aimed at giving amateur talent a shot at proving themselves against the pros. Paddy Power members can buy into the Mega Satellite for €320 and try their skills against other competitors for a chance at winning one of the available prizes. Winners will receive five nights of accommodations at Dublin’s Burlington Hotel, travel expenses and buy-in to the games. Paddy Power Poker is also giving each of its Mega Satellite victors another opportunity through its €100,000 Sole Survivor promotion. Sole Survivor will award a lavish cash prize to the qualifier that’s able to outlast all of his or her fellow competitors once they’ve arrived at the Irish Open itself.

Considering that regular buy-ins to the open stand at €3,500, the Mega Satellite represents a great avenue for dedicated players to bankroll their way to the upcoming tournament series. Paddy Power Poker is one of the key backers of the Irish Open 2011, set to take place from 22nd-25th April at downtown Dublin’s The Burlington Hotel.

Paddy Power Earns Recognition through Oggs.Com is a renowned service which only reviews (what they consider to be) the finest of online gambling websites. With the addition of a Paddy Power review, the Irish site has received both a tremendous compliment and the potential for a massive influx of traffic from discerning internet players.

A spokesman from listed a number of Paddy Power’s business and service approaches which helped them reach the decision for inclusion. Among the many positive points listed was Paddy’s attention to responsible gambling. The site enforces a deposit policy that requires players to set their personal restrictions and wait a full week before any changes can be made toward increasing the limit. Paddy Power’s use of the solid, Wagerworks software system along with outstanding customer service also formed significant reasons for their acceptance as an reviewed site.

The process of reviewing a website for addition on can take up to two years due to careful attention regarding quality consistency. Paddy Power was able to complete the addition time quicker than many competitors which is, in itself, a remarkable feat. Paddy offers a wide array of online gambling and bookmaking options through it’s service, including poker, bingo, slots and casino gaming.

UK Resident Wins First European Championship of Bingo

PaddyPower.Com’s first official European Championship of Bingo saw British contestant, Robert Robinson take home the title (and cash prize) and emerge triumphant among the enormous volume of players. Over six hundred Europeans vied for first place during the games which went above and beyond the participation which Paddy expected for their first try at such a large event.

Robinson hails from Nottinghamshire, England and told press that he spent a lot of time trying to qualify for entry into the European Championship. PaddyPower originally conceived the idea of a massive bingo tournament as a way to divert punter’s attention during English absence in the Euro 2008 football games.

While diehards may still have been watching feeds from the final games in Austria and Switzerland,
Robinson was busier working toward the June 29th championship. He now views the Euro outcome as a blessing in disguise and is quite happy that his attention was diverted away from football matches to bingo.

The grand prize rewarded
Robinson a Chevrolet Aero while other contestants received weekends in Paris, France, home makeovers, laptops, flat-screen televisions, or a year of free flights and bingo play. PaddyPower also announced that the European Championship of Bingo would be making a return next year due to wide-scale demand for the event.
