One of the great things about online poker is that it runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and it doesn’t close for the holidays. And when a site like Full Tilt Poker has games at every level and tournaments with a variety of buy-ins running whenever you want them, that can give a certain amount of peace during the hectic holidays. Whether you’re unable to travel or simply need a break from the family, Full Tilt Poker is waiting to provide that getaway.
And Full Tilt is offering some holiday incentives, doling out a few extra gifts in the form of cold hard cash as 2008 winds down and heads into 2009.
The big promotion is the 3Xmas Happy Hour. During normal Full Tilt Happy Hour tournaments and games, players can earn double Full Tilt Points, which can then be used in the Full Tilt store for anything from clothing to laptops, electronics, and plasma televisions. But from December 21st through January 1st, the 3Xmas Happy Hour times will earn triple points for three times longer than usual!
Extended Happy Hour days will be December 24th, 25th, 26th, 31st, and January 1st, and three times the normal points accrued through games and tournaments will be added to your points tally. Simply look for the smiley faces in the “players” column in the Full Tilt Poker lobby, and play those particular tables to earn those extra points.
Keep in mind that those points are also good for some special tournaments, like the Holiday $100K. Oh, we didn’t mention that?
For 2,000 points, players can earn an entry into the Holiday $100K tournaments. The first one will run at 15:15 ET on December 27th, and due to popular demand, another has been added to run at the same time on December 28th. Each tournament will offer $100,000 in cash prizes, and there is truly no better time of the year to gather a few extra thousand dollars for that bank account or poker bankroll!
And for those who haven’t yet accumulated 2,000 Full Tilt Points, there are satellites running now for as little as 50 points. In addition, there are daily freerolls that start at 40 minutes past every hour through December 27th with seats to the Holiday $100K tournaments up for grabs.
How can you get in on these great holiday opportunities? First, download Full Tilt Poker and set up an account. Then go to the lobby where you’ll find the “tournaments” tab. The Holiday $100K events are listed there.
And don’t forget to use a bonus code, specifically “POKERWORKS,” upon making your first deposit to Full Tilt Poker to earn a 100% bonus on any dollar amount up to $600.
What better way to enjoy--or escape--the holidays than to log on to the ultra-popular Full Tilt Poker and join tens of thousands of others in a little game of poker?
