Poker fans around the world have an exciting new promotion that can put even more cash in their pockets while playing the game they love. With the brand new “Seize the Crown” promo, 888poker is giving players more reason than ever to step into one of the largest real-money virtual poker rooms available on the World Wide Web.
Taking part is simple.
Every time a player wins a hand with a royal pocket pair they are awarded a freeroll ticket to the nightly NZ$10,000 Royal Crown Freeroll. A royal pocket pair is any pair of face cards that the player receives in the initial deal (pocket jacks, pocket queens and pocket kings).
To win the ticket players must win the hand with the royal pocket pair while playing any cash game NZ$0.02/NZ$0.05 and higher, any tournament with at least NZ$1 buy-in and BLAST when playing with at least a NZ$1 deposit.
Aside from winning cash on the spot from the free roll itself, there are scratch cards awarded that provide the opportunity to win up to NZ$500,000. These are given out when a player wins a hand with a royal pocket part while taking part in the Royal Crown Freeroll.
Participants are guaranteed at least NZ$1 in winnings with an 85.9779 percent chance of that being the result. They’ll have a 12 percent chance to win NZ$3, a 2 percent chance to win NZ$10, a 0.02 percent chance to win NZ$100, a 0.002 percent chance to win NZ$1,000 and finally 0.0001 percent to win the life-changing grand prize of NZ$500,000.
This exciting new promotion is just another power move by 888poker to continue to bring the best poker experience on the Web to its customers. With a slew of celebrity and professional ambassadors as well as experience, sponsorship and presence at each of the biggest events of the year in the poker world, providing players with such a bonus is really icing on the cake.
The Gibraltar-based company formerly known as Pacific Poker was founded back in 2002 and has developed a strong presence all around the world but particularly in the United Kingdom. It has recently, however, been building its brand in the United States with licenses in Las Vegas as well as New Jersey and Delaware.
The company is a major sponsor of the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas having handled the organization of the qualifying rounds since the 2014 installment of the annual major poker event.
It’s also been the main sponsor in recent years of the Super High Roller Bowl hosted by Poker Central in Vegas. 888poker also partners with the World Poker Tour and hosts 888poker Live and the XL Championship Series every single year.
It also employs a stacked stable of celebrity and professional poker playing ambassadors as mentioned before including Martin Jacobson, Chris Moorman, Dominik Nitsche, Sofia Lovgren, Kara Scott, Natalie Hof, Vivian Saliba, Parker Talbot, former cricket bowler Shane Warne, UFC champion Georges St. Pierre, and footballers Denilson and Luis Suarez.
The site offers loads of different promotions including a bonus of up to £400 for first-time users. The company is also a major partner with the English Premier League, which just started back up last week, and regularly offers chances to win exclusive box tickets to select events.
