LONDON, April 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Two lucky Sky Poker players have just won their dream £10,000 all-inclusive holiday to Las Vegas
The Sky Poker Viva Las Vegas competition has been running for little over a month, and the first two winners of the £10,000 once-in-a-lifetime holiday have been announced. They are James "FOLEYBOY1" Foley of Kilmarnock and Mark "RAILTARD11" Wright of Liskeard. Congratulations to the both of you, and we are looking forward to seeing you in Vegas!
The two winners, however, took extremely different routes to book their trip to Las Vegas. Foley, for instance, won his Vegas package from a £2.50 satellite. This meant that he had to play his way through the Daily Satellite, Quarter Satellite, Quarter-Final, Semi-Final, and the Viva Las Vegas Final. Mark Wright, on the other hand, bought directly into the final at a cost of £1,100.
This clearly demonstrates the variety of online poker player at Sky Poker, with Foley the recreational poker player who will be living the Las Vegas dream for £2.50, while Wright could be considered a relative high roller on the site.
For your chance to win in the next Viva Las Vegas poker final, head to the lobby now and register for one of the many satellites. Sign up for one of the satellites now as the next final to be held on the Sunday 29th April 2012 at 9pm.
You can participate in the Viva Las Vegas promotion through the Sky Poker download client or via your web browser. For more rules and information, or to simply view the amazing package that Foley and Wright have won, please visit the Viva Las Vegas game page.
The best of luck to all players and we'll hopefully see you in Vegas!
