It’s 2010! A new year brings all sorts of possibilities, especially in the wide world of poker. And players who follow the tournament circuit know that January kicks off the year with one of the most exciting and well-attended tournaments on the planet, that being the Aussie Millions at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. And it’s not too late to win your way to the “land down under” and the Aussie Millions Main Event!
The promotion on Full Tilt Poker allows the site to award qualifiers some amazing prize packages, all of which are worth $14,500. Included in each package is a Main Event seat worth $10,500, accommodations at the Crown Casino for 11 nights in one of Australia’s most exciting cities, and $1,200 to use for travel and expenses. Winners making the trip to Australia will also receive Full Tilt Poker gear, entries into Full Tilt activities and instruction from members of Team Full Tilt, and entry into a private tournament with a $50K prize pool.
But there is no time to waste! The promotion ends on January 10, as the Aussie Millions Main Event begins on January 24. There are only a few days left to get your hands on that prize package.
How does a person do that? First, download Full Tilt Poker and set up a real money account. When making the initial deposit, use the bonus code “FTRAKEBACK27” for the opportunity to receive 27 percent of the rake back after ring game and tournament play on the site. Then go to the tournament lobby and search for the Aussie Millions qualifiers. Players can qualify for as little as $.50 or 50 Full Tilt Points.
The big qualifiers are nearly done, but big tournaments remain to be held on Saturday, January 9, and Sunday, January 10. If seats are won in the smaller satellites, simply show up to compete for the seats in either one of the remaining qualifiers. And players can also buy in directly on either day of the final weekend for $500 + $35. There are several prize packages remaining to be awarded, but it will be a race to the finish for those still trying to win their seats.
If you’d like to start your 2010 with a trip to the Aussie Millions and a shot at winning millions of dollars, make your resolution to start playing on Full Tilt Poker now!
