888 Poker Launches $1 Million Treasure Quest Promotion

Treasure Quest at 888 Poker888 Poker has launched an engaging “Treasure Quest” promotion that has more than $1 million in cash bonuses and tournament entry prizes up for grabs.

888 Poker is starting the New Year with a pirate-themed promotion called “Treasure Quest”. The promotion is pretty much what we have come to expect from the site these days – a mission-based event with a freeroll-intensive prize structure – but there several good reasons to participate in the promotion for players who have the time to play at 888 Poker regularly.

The Treasure Quest promotion revolves around a 5×5 grid – each box of the grid concealing a mission that players have to complete in order to fill the box. For each mission that is completed, players will be awarded a random prize likely to be an entry into a freeroll tournament (93% of the time), but that could also be a cash bonus of $1.00, $5.00 or $50.00.

Where the promotion becomes interesting is when any of the five lines going across or down the grid are completed. When this happens, players click on the icon by the side of the completed line to win a random cash bonus of between $5.00 and $5,000; and – when players complete the full grid – they will win an addition cash bonus of between $20.00 and $100,000.

How the Treasure Quest Promotion Works

To participate in the Treasure Quest promotion, all you have to do is log into your 888 Poker account and click on the pop-up in the poker lobby. This will take you to your personal treasure map. You then click on the relevant date and your mission will be revealed to you. Missions typically consist of:

  • Win a pot with a specific starting hand.
  • Play in (or cash in) a multitable tournament.
  • Play (or win) a specific number of cash game hands.
  • Play (or win) a specific number of BLAST Games.

Make sure you read the terms and conditions of each mission before starting it. For example, cash game missions can only be completed on NL Hold´em or SNAP Poker tables with minimum blinds of $0.02/$0.05, and all tournament-based missions have a minimum buy-in requirement of $1.00. As usual, heads-up games, and Omaha cash games are excluded from the promotion.

Once you have completed the mission, a pop-up will appear on your screen congratulating you and telling you what prize you have won. As mentioned above, there is a strong likelihood that your prize will be a ticket for a $6,000 “Pirate´s Prize” freeroll tournament that takes place each evening at 9:08pm (GMT), but you might be lucky and win a cash bonus.

Complete Missions Every Day for Guaranteed Cash Bonuses

With ten lines of the grid to complete (five across and five down), you have the potential to win a minimum of $70.00 in guaranteed cash bonuses for completing your “Treasure Quest” map. All cash bonuses under $5,000 have clearing requirements (3.5 Bonus Points per $1.00), but any money you win in one of the “Pirate´s Prize” freeroll tournaments is yours to do with what you like.

Throughout the promotion (which runs until 25th February), 888 Poker will also be hosting two daily “Treasure Quest” freeroll tournaments at 11:04am and 5:04pm (all times GMT). These are free to enter for players who have made a deposit into their 888 Poker accounts and bet at least $1.00 in the past twelve months, and award cash prizes with no clearing requirements.

If you have not yet made a deposit at the site, you can take advantage of our of a 100% match on first deposits up to $600. If you create a new account after following our links to the site, you will also be eligible for a free no-deposit poker bonus of up to $88.00 depending on your location. Please note you will still have to make a deposit into your account in order to participate in 888 Poker´s Treasure Quest promotion.
