New Action Squad Tournament at 888poker Offers $100k Daily

888poker and their recent trend of tailoring more tournaments and promotions took another step forward recently with the launch of the Action Squad. Designed to incorporate the best of the operator’s quirky MTT offerings, Action Squad draws on the powers of three superheroes:

  • Blast Man
  • Turbo Warrior
  • Captain SNAP.

Far from spending their time fighting crime, this trio of poker good guys and gals are on a mission to help you ‘take back the power’ and win $100,000. OK, so a latex-clad hero probably isn’t going to fly through your window and tell you how to play better poker.

However, this trident of powerful figures does form the basis for a fun promo that doesn’t discriminate based on stakes. In practical terms, 888poker’s latest bonus is open to any player that makes a deposit of $10 or more using the code SQUAD10!

A Trio of Ways to Win $100,000

Assuming you do this during the promo period (which ends on November 5th 2017), you’ll receive three tickets to three special poker tournaments:

$3,000 Blast Man Tournament: Daily at 23:10 GMT
Unlike traditional poker, Blast tournament has a timer to put pressure on the action. Put simply, you play until the timer hits zero. Once time has run out, everyone goes all-in on every hand until there’s a winner.
$3,000 Captain SNAP Tournament: Daily at 14:00 GMT
Join the SNAP tournaments and you’ll be moved to a new table and see a new hand each time you fold. This is high-octane poker at its finest.
$3,000 Turbo Warrior Tournament: Daily at 15:00 GMT
If you’re looking for a traditional tournament format where the difference is a sped-up clock with levels ticking over every five minutes, these turbo MTTs are for you.

As well as offering $3,000 in total prize money, each tournament offers you the chance to win a Superhero Scratchcard. Finish in the top ten of any of the three special daily tournaments and you’ll receive a free scratchcard where you can win as much as $100,000 in cash.

To sweeten the deal, 888poker, which forms part of the 888 Gaming collective, has made sure that every game card is a winner. Indeed, if you don’t win some cash, you’ll win entry to the $10,000 Ultimate Hero Tournament which takes place every Sunday at 16:00 GMT.

Earn Your Way to More Scratches

On top of offering a winning scratchcard, 888poker has set daily challenges for real money players to complete. Depending on the dynamics of the day, you’ll be asked to win a certain amount at the SNAP tables, rank in certain positions in Blast tournaments and compete in a set number of Warrior Turbos.

Superhero Scratchcard Prizes

  • $10,000 Ultimate Hero Tournament = 57.29%
  • $1 Bonus = 36%
  • $5 Bonus = 5%
  • $10 Bonus = 1.5%
  • $50 Bonus = 0.2%
  • $1,000 Cash Prize = 0.01%
  • $100,000 Cash Prize = 0.0001%

In line with 888poker’s standard terms and conditions, any bonus cash you receive will be subject to a playthrough based on a conversion rate of 3.5 Bonus Points per $1 in Bonus Cash. So, if you receive a $10 bonus, you’d have to amass 35 Bonus Points before this cash would be eligible for withdrawal.

In contrast, if you bank one of the top prizes worth $1,000 or $100,000, you won’t have to do anything else to claim your prize. Because the prize will be paid out in cash, you can go off and spend it like a baller if you wish, or you can reinvest it and play your way up the stakes at 888poker.

Added Value Courtesy of the WSOPE and 888poker

On top of the Squad Action promotion, 888poker is giving you the chance to win a cheap seat in the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) Main Event. Using its position as the official sponsor of the event, 888poker is running a series of satellites starting at just $0.01.

Although you can enter the qualification system at a higher level (i.e. pay more money) if you wish, the operator has made sure that more players than ever have a chance to win their way to the WSOPE. For those that come out on top, 888poker is giving away a prize package worth $13,000 that includes:

  • Accommodation for five nights between November 4th and 9th.
  • Entry to the WSOPE Main Event worth €10,350 ($12,360).
  • $400 for travel and expenses (paid directly to players’ accounts).
  • An exclusive 888live poker kit to wear during the event.

With qualifiers running through October ahead of the November 4th start date and $100,000 in additional bonuses up for grabs over the coming weeks, it seems 888poker is the place to be for added value, so head over to 888poker to signup today!
