888 Poker’s $12,500 Aussie Millions Package

Share this
Get on board and do it fast. You’ll need an 888 Poker/Pacific Poker account and you can get that right here at PokerWorks simply by downloading the software, registering and making a deposit.  And while you are registering, use the bonus code POKERWORKS to receive a special 100% up to $400 plus a 25% instant bonus.

Through an exclusive partnership with PokerNews, PokerWorks is able to offer players an extremely unique satellite opportunity to the 2009 Aussie Millions.  For a $110 buy-in, players are entered into a guaranteed $12,500 Aussie Millions satellite.  The starting whistle on this satellite sounds on January 6th at 20:00GMT, a Tuesday – mark your calendar - if you have to work that day, just call in sick.

The winner of the satellite will win a $12,500 Aussie Millions Package (contingent on upon there being 40 players in the satellite); more entries are added for each $12,500 additional in the prize pool.  If only one $12,500 Aussie Million’s Package is awarded, any remaining prize pool will be distributed according to 888 Poker’s standard tournament distribution policy.  

Here’s where the tournament gets uniquely fun.  The satellite winner playing the Main Event of the Aussie Millions is not only playing for themselves but for the other top 17 players in the January 6 Satellite.  That means even if you don’t win the seat (why did you call in sick if you don’t plan on winning?) you still have a shot at making some dough if the satellite winner places in the money.  The money payout for the satellite winner placing in the money in the main event receives 50% of the first place prize and the rest of it is distributed as follows:

1st place receives 50%
2nd place 12%
3rd place 8%
4th place 6%
5th place 5%
6th place 4%
7th place 3%
8th place 2%
9th place 1%
10th place 1%
11th place 1%
12th place 1%
13th  place 1%
14th place 1%
15th place 1%
16th place 1%
17th place 1%
18th place 1%

The Aussie Millions Package includes the entry to the main event, cash for travel, and accommodations at the Crown Promenade Hotel.  And this satellite is available to everyone that has signed up to 888 Poker through PokerWorks.  Keep in mind that this promotional satellite is not one that would be found regularly on PokerWorks, make sure you understand the entire process before you sign up to play – read the Terms & Conditions.
