U.S. online poker players looking for value in the new year will find it at the Winning Poker Network (WPN) as $80,000 has been added to “The Beast” in January.
The Beast is WPN’s weekly leaderboard race that is fully-funded by the network, meaning that players don’t kick in any of their hard-earned cash while competing for top prize money. And the additional $80K this month will also come from WPN’s profits, making the start of 2015 a great time for players to deposit and play at WPN skins such as Black Chip Poker and Americas Cardroom.
The $80K will be distributed evenly at $20,000 each week, starting with Saturday, January 3. The start dates for the rest of the month are Jan. 10, 17 and 24. The top 20 weekly players will each grab an additional $1,000.
WPN players need not opt in to participate. Each players’ position or rank on The Beast leaderboard is calculated by WPN.
WPN skins are offering awesome first-time deposit bonuses for new signups. Check out our Black Chip Poker Review for more details on the 100% up to $1,000 Welcome Bonus.
The same generous deal is available over at ACR. Our review of Americas Cardroom has all the information.
Other Happenings at WPN
Don’t forget that the Winning Millions $1 million guaranteed tournament is set for February 22 at 3:00 p.m. ET. The winner is guaranteed a cool $200,000.
The buy-in for this massive event is $540. Players can gain entry for a fraction of the buy-in at over 600 satellites that are on the schedule before that late February kick-off for the Winning Millions.
Another great idea is to make your first deposit at Americas Cardroom or Black Chip Poker and use the $1,000 bonus money to enter the Winning Millions. It’s just like a free entry! With money left over!
I almost forgot to mention that a ticket to a special Depositor Freeroll is also awarded to first-time depositors at the poker sites mentioned. A recent added bonus is that new players can play at the weekly Depositor Freerolls for the entire month! Those freeroll tourneys for newcomers are held every Saturday.
By the way, WPN repeatedly gets high marks among industry watchers for the speed in which cashouts are processed. That is a crucial consideration among U.S. players, as it should be.
Start 2015 off right by depositing and playing at poker rooms on WPN. A huge weekly leaderboard race, a fantastic deposit bonus, and the largest tournament available to U.S. players in more than three years can all be found at Black Chip Poker and Americas Cardroom.
