SportsBetting Poker is hosting a $150,000 guaranteed online poker tournament on Sunday January 28th and is offering players the chance to qualify for the event for free by collecting points when they play the site´s new Boost and Windfall games.
SportsBetting Poker´s $150,000 guaranteed tournament on January 28th will be the most valuable event hosted by the site in its five-year history. The tournament comes at a time when SportsBetting Poker has added a number of new features to improve the playing experience and, in order to encourage players to try the new features, the site is running a very special promotion.
The $150,000 guaranteed tournament has a buy-in of $165.00 and is supported by a comprehensive satellite schedule. However, rather than buy-in directly or qualify via the satellite schedule, players can qualify for free by playing in the site´s fast-fold Boost Poker games and Windfall Sit & Go games and collecting points that can be exchanged for a tournament entry ticket.
How to Collect Points Playing Boost Poker Games
Boost Poker is SportsBetting Poker´s new fast-fold NL Hold´em game. Like many sites offering fast-fold poker, players simply select the stakes they want to play at and how many tables they want to play simultaneously (up to a maximum of four tables). Every time they are dealt hole cards they do not like, players can “fast-fold” the cards, be taken to a new table, and dealt a new set of cards.
From now until Saturday January 27th, players will be awarded points towards the promotion every time they win a hand with a straight. It is not necessary for the hand to go to showdown in order to collect points, but the winning hand must include both hole cards. The value of points awarded depends on the stakes being played:
- In Boost Poker games with blinds of $0.10/$0.25, players are awarded 15 Points.
- In Boost Poker games with blinds of $0.50/$1.00, players are awarded 60 Points.
- In Boost Poker games with blinds of $1.00/$2.00, players are awarded 150 Points.
How to Collect Points Playing Windfall Sit & Go Games
Windfall Sit & Go games are SportsBetting Poker´s new three-handed, hyper-turbo Sit & Go games which start with a random prize pool being drawn at the beginning of each game. Players can win up to 2,000 times their buy-in in each game, which is played with just 500 starting chips and levels lasting three minutes each. To date, these games have been very popular among players.
From now until Saturday January 27th, each time a player plays in a Windfall Sit & Go game at SportsBetting Poker, they will receive points based on the buy-in. It does not matter whether they win or lose the game, the points will be awarded automatically. There are four buy-in levels to choose from, with the points awarded as follows:
- Players in Windfall games with a $3.00 buy-in are awarded 5 Points each.
- Players in Windfall games with a $7.00 buy-in are awarded 10 Points each.
- Players in Windfall games with a $15.00 buy-in are awarded 25 Points each.
- Players in Windfall games with a $30.00 buy-in are awarded 55 Points each.
Collect, Combine and Exchange the Points for a Tournament Entry
Players do not have to exclusively play Boost Poker or Windfall Sit & Go games in order to collect points. Points collected from both games are added together and can be exchanged on Sunday January 28th for one of these tournament entry tickets:
|150 Points||$11.00 tournament entry ticket|
|400 Points||$33.00 tournament entry ticket|
|1200 Points||$109.00 tournament entry ticket|
|2200 Points||$165.00 tournament entry ticket|
It is important to note the $165.00 tournament entry ticket can only be used to enter the $150,000 guaranteed tournament on Sunday January 28th and that players can only exchange their points for one ticket. (So, if you had 800 Points, you would not be able to exchange them for two $33.00 tournament tickets).
It is also important to note that, all the time players are collecting points towards a free tournament ticket, they are also earning Comp Points towards clearing the SportsBetting Poker bonus. If you have not yet taken advantage of this opportunity, now would be a great time to do so with an exciting month of action ahead.
