LONDON, August 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Be sure to enjoy one of Sky Poker's many online promotions this bank holiday weekend

The August Bank Holiday weekend is a fantastic time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the final days of summer. Sky Poker realise this, and are offering all of their online poker players several fantastic bonuses to kick-off the extended weekend.

So make sure that you head off to Sky Poker now to enjoy some of their latest offers and competitions.

If you think that you are a capable poker player, maybe you will be able to win a massive cash prize and a seat in the Sky Poker Tour Grand Final with the fantastic Jackpot Boost promotion. To earn this fantastic prize, you will need to win the main event at 8pm and then the mini-event at 8.15pm on the same night. So be sure to 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. Pretty good for an evening's work!

Sky Poker will also be rewarding players for playing poker during the month of August, by giving everyone the ability to earn Poker Points at a faster rate thanks to the Super Cash for Points promotion.

For instance, if you earned 1,250 points in a month you would normally get paid 1p per point, which would equate to £12.50. In August, however, you will be paid 1.2p per point, which adds up to £15.

Similarly, if you earned 7,189 points, usually you would get paid 2.2p per point. But with the Super Cash for Points promotion, you will be paid 2.4p per point, which will earn you a smart £172.54 in total.

With Cash for Points, you will only start earning your bonus after you have acquired 500 Poker Points. Typically you would earn 0.8p for every point gained, but with Super Cash for Points during August, Sky Poker will be giving players 1p per point once they hit the 500 point mark.

To be part of this amazing Cash for Points initiative, enter the promo code "POINTS" in the "Free Bets" section of "My Account". This bank holiday weekend may be your last opportunity to be part of the Super Cash for Points promotion, so be sure to take the time to enjoy some poker online.

But if you want to win some fantastic cash prizes in an exciting online poker competition, the monthly Super Roller is the tournament you should be playing. The best poker players online will be participating, so make sure that you enter and take down the biggest monthly tournament on Sky Poker!

On the last Sunday of each month, Sky Poker will be running this amazing £110 buy-in tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of £20,000. Each game will begin at 8pm, and players will get 10,000 chips and the blinds will increase every 15 minutes, making it one of the most exciting tournaments available.

If the £110 buy-in is outside of your poker budget, you can satellite your way into the Super Roller from as little as £5.30 with daily satellites into the Semi-Final that take place every night at 9.45 pm.
