Expect the Unexpected Promotion Returns to 888Poker

888Poker Expect the Unexpected888Poker is re-running one of its most successful promotions – “Expect the Unexpected” – with $1,000,000 in cash, gifts and extra surprises up for grabs.

Around this time last year, 888Poker ran its first “Expect the Unexpected” promotion – an incredibly successful event that saw thousands of players competing for a million dollars of cash prizes, gifts and “extra surprises”.

This year´s re-run of the promotion follows almost the same concept, but with different qualifying criteria intended to drive more traffic to the poker tables. There is also a wider range of prizes being offered to players who finish in the top fifty places in the daily “Unexpected Giveaway Tournaments”.

How the Promotion Works

Every day until November 14, 888Poker is hosting three “Unexpected Giveaway Tournaments” at 00:05am, 12:05pm and 19:05pm (all times GMT). Each tournament has a prize pool of $3,000 and, in addition to the cash prizes, players occupying the top fifty places will win an “extra surprise”.

The “extra surprise” for each tournament will be different, and can vary from a GoPro camera or PlayStation 4 to an 888Poker chip set or cash bonus. Players will find out what the “extra surprise” is at the start of each tournament and, if they finish within the top fifty places, the prize will be confirmed by email.

Players automatically get three entry tickets into the “Unexpected Giveaway Tournaments” and, once they have played in one event, can win extra entry tickets for each of the following missions they complete:

  • Play in five or more BLAST tournaments with a buy-in of $1.00 or more.
  • Play in regular tournaments or Sit & Go games with a total buy-in of $4.00 or more.
  • Win fifteen hands at real money cash game tables with a minimum stake level of $0.02/$0.05.

Players who have made at least one deposit into their 888Poker accounts can also win extra tournament entries through the Magic Spin game. The Magic Spin game appears as a pop-up when you first enter the poker lobby each day and as well as offering tournament entries as a prize, players can win BLAST tickets, entries into “regular” tournaments, free sports bets and casino free plays.

Free Tickets Part of 888Poker´s New Welcome Package

Tickets feature heavily in 888Poker´s new Welcome Package. In addition to receiving three entries into the “Unexpected Giveaway Tournaments”, new players making their first deposit with the 888Poker bonus code “10MYSTERY” also receive:

  • 7 tickets to First Depositors $500 Freeroll Tournaments.
  • 2 tickets to Depositors $1,000 Freeroll Tournaments.
  • 1 ticket to a First Depositors Challenge Tournament with ten seats guaranteed to the site´s valuable Sunday Challenge Tournament.

The free tickets are in addition to 888Poker´s free poker money offer – the value of which varies according to your location – and the site´s fist deposit bonus which, if you follow our links to 888Poker, is a 100% match on first deposits up to $600 (usual bonus is up to $400).

New players should also check out the 888Poker Club – a different type of loyalty program in which players are rewarded for completing Club Challenges. This challenges differ from those required to earn extra entries into the “Unexpected Giveaway Tournaments” and include sports betting and casino game challenges as well as those based around online poker.
