Exciting news for beach going poker players! Ultimate Bet pumped up the prize pool for next year’s Aruba Classic. Ultimate Bet has guaranteed a $1m payout for the winner of the 2008 Aruba Classic only two months after the 2007 event.
Travis Rice aka “TravestyFund” won the 2007 Aruba Classic, finishing ahead of 548 players and cashing for $800k. Ultimate Bet made sure next year’s winner not only comes home with a tan, but with a million dollars.
"We're heading back to Aruba for the biggest poker celebration of the decade," stated Ultimate Bet spokesperson George MacLean. "And we're bringing the largest first place prize in our history with us."
For the 7th straight year, Ultimate Bet’s Aruba Classic will be held at the Radisson Aruba Resort and Casino September 27th through October 4th, 2008. The Aruba Classic has become a favorite among poker professionals, amateurs and Hollywood celebrities. Ultimate Bet will launch satellites to the 2008 Aruba Classic as early as January.
