LONDON, August 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
For those looking for a great summer of exciting poker competition, be sure to check out the latest promotions at Sky Poker.
Ok so the weather may not be up to much... but it's still summer and that's worth celebrating!
Although the lack of sun means that we may not be able to visit the beach, enjoy the comforts of our local beer garden, or even eat some slightly suspect chicken from the barbeque, it doesn't stop anyone from playing some online poker.
So make sure that you head off to Sky Poker now to enjoy some of their latest offers and competitions.
For instance, talented poker players may be able to win extra prizes and a seat in the Sky Poker Tour Grand Final with the Jackpot Boost promotion. To guarantee yourself this fantastic prize, you will need to take down the main event at 8pm and then the mini-event at 8.15pm on the same night. Just make sure that you take your seats now for a chance to feature in the Nottingham final.
Sound difficult? Well it has been done before.
Earlier this year, "alan1506" won both the Primo and Mini Primo on Sunday 22nd January to scoop the £6,800 jackpot prize. Along with the impressive £3415.50 that he won as prize money, "alan1506" took home a staggering £10,620. Not bad for an evening's work!
Sky Poker realise that winning this jackpot is quite a challenge, so to add an extra incentive, they will add another £100 to the prize pool. Once someone wins it, the jackpot total will be reset back to £5,000.
But for those who love playing poker but rarely find enough time to play in a tournament, why not try an exciting and fast game of Sit 'n' Go with Sky!
A Sit 'n' Go tournament is quite similar to a regular tournament, but it starts as soon as the required number of players has registered to play. A normal Sky Poker tournament, on the other hand, will include as many people who have registered by the starting time. This could be from as little as 10 people to well over 1,000.
Normally a "one table tournament", a Sit 'n' Go usually have between six or nine players. This is good for players who can't to wait; as a Sit 'n' Go does not a have a pre-determined start time. It's literally a case of sitting in then going!
