BetOnline Supporting $150K Tournament with New Promotion

BetOnline $150K GuaranteedBetOnline Poker is offering players a massive incentive to play its new Windfall Sit & Go and Boost cash games by giving them the opportunity to qualify free of charge for the biggest tournament in the site´s history at the end of the month.

In the past, BetOnline Poker has not been renowned for the value of its online tournaments. On a typical weekend, the combined guaranteed prize pools of the site´s feature tournaments amount to less than $150,000. Only on the last weekend of each month – when BetOnline Poker increases the guarantee on its feature event to $100,000 – does the site ever get close to paying $200,000 in prize money.

However, things appear to be changing at BetOnline Poker. In recent weeks the site has introduced new Windfall hyper-turbo Sit & Go games and fast-fold Boost cash games. The size of the weekday tournament guarantees is inching upwards, and now the site has announced it will increase the guarantee for its end-of-month feature event to $150,000 – for January at least.

The $150,000 Guaranteed Event at BetOnline Poker

The $150,000 guaranteed event at BetOnline Poker will take place on Sunday 28th January at 7:00pm. It has a direct buy-in of $165.00 or players can take advantage of a comprehensive satellite and sub-satellite schedule to win one of the 27 seats guaranteed each week. The tournament is also being supported by a Steps Sit & Go promotion with the lowest entry point being at freeroll level.

Players familiar with BetOnline Poker´s Steps Sit & Go promotions will notice a few changes this month. The number of Steps has been reduced from four to three, with the buy-ins for the 6-Max Sit & Go games increased to $1.50, $7.00 and $30.00. There are also changes to the freeroll stage, which now only awards five seats into the Step 1 Sit & Go games (previously thirty seats).

Qualify for Free by Playing Windfall and Boost Games

To incentivize players to visit the site throughout January, BetOnline Poker is running a promotion through which players can qualify for free for the $150,000 guaranteed tournament. All players have to do is play the new Windfall hyper-turbo Sit & Go games and – win or lose – they will be awarded points according to the cost of the buy-in.

Players can also earn points by playing BetOnline Poker´s new fast-fold Boost Poker games. Points will be awarded each time a player wins a hand with a straight. The hand does not have to go to showdown to qualify for the points, but the straight does have to contain both hole cards. The promotion runs until Saturday 27th January, when players will be able to cash in their points for one of the following prizes:

Points Prize
150 $11.00 ticket for $5,000 guaranteed turbo event
400 $33.00 ticket for $15,000 guaranteed tournament
1200 $109.00 ticket for $50,000 guaranteed weekly event
2200 $165.00 ticket for $150,000 guaranteed January tournament
