While nature slowly but surely reminds us that another summer is nearly over and the days start getting shorter again, bet365 improves their promotions so you can get back to some serious poker playing after a lovely summer break. No matter whether you are interested in the Leaderboard Tournament that lets you play for big cash prizes each month or whether you prefer the very popular Jackpot Sit&Go Tournaments, bet365 offers all serious poker players a lot of incentives.
In September however a lot of these already nice promotional offers will be improved even more. Dedicated bet365 players will know and look forward to the monthly $250,000 Guaranteeds – in September (and we may give it away already, also in October) this tournament will be improved significantly. You will play for 4 times the amount. Guaranteed. And yes, the quick brains among us already know that this equals 1 million dollars!
And since a catchy name has always been the darling of promoters these tournaments are now known as the Monthly Million Tournaments. You may choose to either make use of a direct buy-in of $500+35 or instead opt for one of the many daily qualifiers starting with buy-ins of $1+0.10. It is up to you how you want to make sure to get your part of $1,000,000.
Of course you will also benefit from all the other promotions such as the weekly 100,000 Merit Points New Depositor Freeroll. After making your first deposit at bet365 you will receive a token that allows you to compete in this tournament that can help you boost your Merit Points tremendously. Additionally the top 100 finishers of this tournament will qualify for the Monthly New Depositor Freeroll where you will compete with a maximum of 499 other players for your share of $2,000. And all this completely free of charge.
Also let’s not forget the Monthly Luxury Holiday Draw for poker players of VIP Level Gold or above (you may opt to cash it in instead and receive $2,000) – and you don’t even have to register for it, you will be added into the pool automatically once you reach the Gold Level. Additionally there are various monthly freerolls depending on your VIP Level, starting at a $500 freeroll for VIP Level Bronze. And you are actually a VIP Level Bronze player with just a single Merit Point per month!
If you aren’t a bet365 poker player yet, take this opportunity to check our detailed review and our bet365 poker bonus information. As always, take your time in making up your mind whether this poker room is the right one for you (and don’t base your decision solely on the poker bonus) and if you think it is, just use our link to make sure you get the best experience out of it. And if you are an existing bet365 poker player enjoy the fact that you may now exchange the rain outside for a cash-rain while sitting in your warm and comfortable chair.
Since February bet365 Poker offers their customers a new loyalty programme that aims to be more transparent as well as more rewarding. Poker players will find it easy to understand the concept of the new system and the advantages – one of the more obvious ones is that with the new point system (you will earn the same amount of points per rake regardless of VIP level) you don’t have to force yourself to play each month (we all get sick sometimes or want to take a break and go on a nice vacation) in order to stay at your current VIP level. You can simply take a break, come back and play your usual games and you will be back to your prior VIP level the following month without any point penalties whatsoever.
So to reiterate, every player earns the same amount of Merit Points for the same accomplishments. Fair is fair. In detail that means that each player will earn up to 10 points per rake and the buy-in fees will be rewarded with 15 points per $. Higher VIP levels are nonetheless a big thing as you will be able to take advantage of additional offers (like exclusive $1,500 freerolls or monthly luxury holiday draws) as well as better rates when converting your Merit Points to cash. Platinum Members will even be able to exchange their Merit Points for a WSOP package worth $16,000!
Advancing through the various VIP levels is quite easy and regular players will find that reaching Silver or Gold status is a task which is easily achieved. In order to become a member of the Platinum VIP level you will have to show your dedication and prove that you understand the game. And if you want to become part of the elitist Diamond Club you will have to be one of the big players. You cannot simply gather a certain amount of points to reach that level – the Diamond Club is an honour that can only be achieved through an invitation by bet365. Once you get there however you will enjoy exclusive service as well as lots of benefits and special offers that will cater your needs and wishes.
If you are new to bet365 make sure to sign up through Max Poker Bonus and secure yourself not only the impressive 200% poker bonus up to $600 – you will find details on our bet365 Poker bonus page – but also the right to compete in one of the weekly New Depositor Freerolls for $1,000. And as if that wasn’t enough, the top 100 of the weekly freerolls will qualify for the monthly New Depositor Freeroll for $2,000. Additionally there will be a bet365 Bounty Player in each of these tournaments and if you are the one taking him from the table you will be rewarded with an additional $22 Tournament Token for use in the event of your choice.
In February, poker network iPoker offers their players the Febonanza, a leaderboard event that rewards the 300 players who earn the most points in the course of the month with additional cash prizes in the value of $400,000. That by itself is already a very nice promotion – however bet365 decided that their players deserve more and simply raised the bonus for all bet365 Poker to $1,000,000 – and we have to admit, 1 million dollars does have a much nicer ring to it.
So what bet365 will do is to pay you 2.5 times the payout that you would normally receive when finishing the month of February as one of the top 300 point earners. The only thing you have to do to qualify for that is to earn your points on bet365 Poker. If you are a dedicated player on bet365 Poker this turns the Febonanza into the Million Dollar Mission. A Mission Possible we believe.
However that is not all! At bet365 you can also win an extra jackpot with every millionth hand played in February. If you participate in any millionth hand played you will receive a share of the Millionth Hand Jackpot (depending on the limit of the table up to $3,000) – and if you win one of these hands you will also get the whole jackpot sum for yourself. And there is still more to come: As a winner you will automatically qualify for the Jackpot Hand Super Showdown that rewards the highest winning hand with an additional $30,000 while the lowest winning hand will get a $20,000 bonus.
If you are a dedicated poker player you will find that playing at bet365 Poker will reward you a lot in February. Make most of this opportunity and cash in on your poker games. Each hand counts. If you manage to put your name onto the leaderboard you will reap the benefits of bet365’s prize increase. As bet365 Poker player you will earn a whopping $1,875 for ending up last while a regular player who ends up 26th of the 300 top players will still receive less money than you with his $1,500. If you compete in this leaderboard event in a different poker room, you only have yourself to blame. If you are not a bet365 Poker player yet check out our bet365 Poker bonus page and take advantage by signing up through Max Poker Bonus. And if you are already signed up at bet365 – get playing!
With their Leaderboard Race Challenge 2008 bet365 offer you the chance to qualify for The Grand Final simply by playing regular cash games. The Grand Final will see players compete for a prize-pool of $130,000 which includes several European Poker Tour Packages worth $12.000 each. The winner of The Grand Final will receive as many as 6 EPT Packages (total value $72.000) and while the players ending up 4th – 10th will receive cash the ones ending in the top 3 also have the option to exchange their EPT Packages for cash if they so please (they will be bought out for 75% of the packages’ worth – the winner for example would end up with $54.000 cash instead of the 6 EPT Packages if he decides he prefers not to compete in the EPT).
How can you qualify for The Grand Final? You will not have to compete in satellites or any qualifying tournaments, you will simply play your usual cash games at bet365 and be rewarded for the rakes you produce. Each week the 40 players who lead the list by accumulating qualifying raked hands will get rewarded with cash prizes. Additionally to that the top 5 players will receive a seat for The Grand Final. If one of these 5 players is already qualified he will be rewarded with an additional 3,000 chips for the final tournament up to a possible total of 9,000 chips! So it really pays off staying dedicated after you have qualified.
The Grand Final takes place on January 19th 2009, the qualification will end after December 28th 2008. And in order to give you a chance to be part of the final tournament even if you don’t have the time to play each and every day bet365 holds a special tournament each week for the top 100 players where the winner gets rewarded with a seat in The Grand Final.
While this Leaderboard Race Challenge by bet365 is an excellent idea to reward cash game players for their activity and dedication we strongly urge you not to start playing excessively just because of that (or any other) promotion. Stay at your limits and play according to your personal bankroll, avoid playing on tilts or playing for too long in one session with your concentration waning. If you manage to be in a promising position in the leaderboard by playing your regular game you can still increase your playing frequency a bit. But it would be the wrong approach to throw your whole usual concept of poker over board simply for a promotion even if it is as tempting as this one.
