Take Advantage of BetOnline´s Birthday Bash in August

BetOnline Birthday BashBetOnline is celebrating the Chico Network´s birthday with a host of promotions for cash games players and online tournament grinders.

In an online poker market that is generally acknowledged to be declining, the Chico Poker Network is one of the success stories of recent years. Traffic on the network has more than doubled in the past two years, driven by fabulous first deposit bonuses and excellent promotions.

Throughout August, the network is celebrating its success with a massive birthday bash (massive by the network´s usual standards anyway), and the best place to take advantage of the promotions that are taking place throughout the month is at BetOnline – the network´s flagship online poker site.

Party Favors for Cash Game Players

The Party Favors promotion runs on selected days and rewards players with up $200 for getting selected hands, or for being beaten with a Jack-high flush or better. If you win or lose a pot with the selected hand on the day a promotion is running, all you have to do is email BetOnline Poker´s support team with your username and the hand number, and a prize of up to twenty times the big blind will be credited to your account.

Date Hand Prize
7th & 8th August Four of a Kind 10x Big Blind
14th & 15th August Bad Beat (NLHE only) 10x Big Blind
21st, 22nd & 23rd August Royal Flush 20x Big Blind
26th & 27th August Four of a Kind 10x Big Blind
29th & 30th August Bad Beat (NLHE only) 10x Big Blind

There is no limit on the number of times a player can win a prize in the Party Favors promotion, so the more you play on the selected days, the more chance you have of sharing in BetOnline´s birthday bash. The usual terms and conditions apply – like both hole cards must be used to construct the winning/losing hand, and at least four players must be dealt into the hand for the Royal Flush to count, but as a rule this is an excellent promotion for cash game players.

BetOnline´s Biggest Tournament Yet

Tournament players at BetOnline Poker are also in for a treat throughout August. Extra money has been added to the monthly MTT and SnG leaderboards competitions so that there is more than $28,000 up for grabs in cash prizes and tournament entries, and the guarantee on the weekly Saturday $10K GT has been increased to $15,000.

However, the really big news for BetOnline players is that on Saturday 29th August, the site will be hosting its biggest tournament yet – a $50,000 guaranteed birthday bash with a buy-in of just $99.00. The event will follow BetOnline Poker´s usual format of unlimited re-buys for the first hour and a single add-on at the first break and, to help players qualify for its biggest tournament yet, BetOnline Poker is hosting a comprehensive satellite schedule starting at freeroll level.

Take a Seat at BetOnline´s Birthday Bash

BetOnline is the highest rated site on USAFriendlyPokerSites.com, and there are plenty of good reasons for this which you can read about in our BetOnline Poker Review. What we really like about the birthday bash “Party Favors” promotion is that players of all stake levels have the opportunity to win prizes several times without having to achieve certain milestones, make a qualifying deposit or pay a premium rake to participate.

The $50,000 guaranteed event is ambitious inasmuch as BetOnline Poker rarely guarantees any more than $25,000 for its online poker tournaments. The comprehensive satellite schedule provides the opportunity for plenty of players to get involved for a fraction of the buy-in; however, we think this could be a fantastic event for players with the bankroll for re-buys and add-ons at this level.

If you are not yet playing at BetOnline Poker, don´t miss out on the chance to pick up some prizes and tournament value in August. Make your first deposit using the BetOnline Poker bonus code “POKERNEW”, and you will be eligible for a weighted five-tier first deposit bonus of 200% up to $2,000 that benefits both recreational players and those with the time to spend at the BetOnline poker tables.
