Take two poker sites that have been through complete hell to establish credibility and game security; add investigations and lawsuits; 60 minutes and the Washington Post reports; too many posts in forums on cheating and super user accounts; allow the fact that the crime was committed by previous owners and yet millions of dollars have been paid back by present owner/s to players that had their game compromised; and you have a great new platform that brings two sites together, combines the player base, and has CEREUS-LY beefed up security and plans on building one helluva poker network.
Ultimate Bet and Absolute Poker have each launched a $115,000 Points Race in the form of a $220,000 contest that got underway on December 1st. Free Money!! Free Money!! Free Money has a nice jingle to it, doesn’t it?
From the 1st of December to the 31st, you can qualify for UltimateBet’s Points Race promo and Absolute Poker’s Race Cards contest by playing in any real money, raked, ring game. You will be earning RAI$E Status Points at Ultimate Bet and FAME Credits at Absolute Poker, simply by playing. Each site will take the top 200 Status Point earners on their respective leaderboards and those top 200 will share in a $200,000 prize pool. High points on the leaderboards will find themselves with $15,000 for first place, the second place finisher receives $14,000 and third receives $13,000 and even though the number grows based on the leaderboard rank, the top 30 are guaranteed to win $1,000. The $200,000 prize pool is double the amount offered in the October Points Race contest on each online poker site for the top Status Point earners.
The excitement continues in a freeroll invitation for the top 1,000 Status Point earners on each leaderboard when they receive an invitation to play in a $20,000 freeroll.
The two sites have a combined Bad Beat Jackpot meaning that the total spins on a daily upward run faster than the reels of a Las Vegas progressive penny slot. Pray for a qualifying bad beat when you take a seat in one of the jackpot games, as of last week it was bordering on the $800,000 mark.
Look for bigger and better things from both Absolute Poker and UltimateBet Poker under the CEREUS Poker Network, like hotter promotions, bigger and better tournaments, and obviously more players, more games, and BIGGER Bad Beat Jackpots.
Why play at Absolute Poker? Why UltimateBet? All the answers are above so don’t tarry; get in on the Points Race promotions today.
