LONDON, November 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Sky Poker is offering a fantastic jackpot prize for anyone who wins both the Main Event and Mini Event on the same night.
Sky Poker is all about offering their customers the chance to win big cash prizes. And with the Jackpot Boost, Sky Poker will give players a huge cash prize if they can win the Main and Mini events on the same night.
But the best part? During the UK Online Poker Series, the Sky Poker Jackpot will be boosted to a staggering £10,000!
You may be sat there thinking that the chances of winning both the Main and Mini events on the same night are highly improbable, if not impossible. But it has been done before.
For example, the first winner of the Jackpot prize was Dylan "dylan12" Davies. Dylan won the 8pm Bounty Hunter and the 8.15pm Mini Bounty Hunter on 19th September 2011 to grab himself £1,718 in winnings, along with a massive £6,500 Jackpot. Yes, that's £8,218 in cash for a buy-in total of £25.30.
More recently, Alan "alan1506" Jenkins won both the Primo and Mini Primo on Sunday 22nd January to scoop a staggering £6,800 jackpot prize. In addition, Alan pocketed £405 for taking down the Mini Primo, while the first prize for the Primo itself was an impressive £3,415. This meant that Alan took home just over £10,620. Not bad for an evening of online poker!
To give players more of an incentive to win the big Jackpot, Sky Poker will add another £100 to the prize pool for each week that goes by with nobody winning it. Please note that once the Jackpot has been won, the amount will be reset to £5,000.
Sky Poker is also offering players a consolation prize of £1,000 to anyone who wins the Main Event and is in the final table at the Mini Event.
