For two weeks only, players at 888Poker are able to participate in the site´s popular and easy-to-complete Grand Hand promotion and win up to $2,000 every day.
2018 has been a pretty good year for online poker promotions at 888Poker and undoubtedly the best promotion of the year was the Grand Hand promotion that ran from early June until early August. What´s was so good about 888Poker´s Grand Hand promotion was that it was easy to fulfil the qualifying criteria and win a prize every day – giving players of all levels the chance to boost their bankrolls for free.
The great news is the Grand Hand promotion is back – but you will have to be quick to take advantage of the opportunity, as the promotion is only running for two weeks until Tuesday 18th December. Between now and then, there will be thousands of dollars in cash prizes up for grabs, plus two Grand Hand freeroll tournaments each day – both with $6,000 in prize money. Forgotten how the Grand Hand promotion works? No problem. Here´s a recap.
How the Grand Hand Promotion Works
888Poker has assigned a “Hand of the Day” for each day the promotion runs (see table below). All you have to do is win a hand after you have been dealt the “Hand of the Day” as your starting cards. It doesn´t matter whether you are playing cash games or SNAP Poker games (minimum stakes $0.02/$0.05), or multi-table tournaments, Sit & Go or Blast Poker games (minimum buy-in $1.00). The only eligibility criteria in cash games is that the hand must see the flop.
When you win a hand using the “Hand of the Day” as your starting cards, a pop-up will appear congratulating you on your win and informing you a prize scratch card has been credited to your account. Behind each scratch card are cash prizes of $1, $10, $100 or $1,000, or a tournament entry tickets for Grand Hand freeroll tournaments that take place each day at 7:30pm (GMT) and 11:30pm (GMT) – the latter being an All-In Shootout you don´t have to be physically present to play in.

You can win up to two scratch card prizes every day, but be sure to check your account frequently if you have received a congratulatory message. Scratch cards expire 24 hours after being issued and, if you win an entry to a Grand Hand freeroll tournament (manual registration required) you have to use the entry within three days, so there is no benefit in saving them up. All unused scratch cards and tournament entries will expire automatically on Tuesday 18th December.
Why Only Two Weeks for the Grand Hand Promotion?
If you are a regular player at 888Poker, you will likely be accustomed to promotions lasting between six to eight weeks; so why only two weeks for the Grand Hand promotion? The answer is that 888Poker is planning to run an XL Blizzard tournament series from 8th to 18th February and the likelihood is that a) the series will be supported by a promotion, and b) the XL Blizzard promotion will start as the Grand Hand promotion ends in order to give players six to eight weeks to qualify for the feature events.
If you are not a regular player at 888Poker, you could be missing out of some potentially lucrative opportunities to boost your bankroll. 888Poker hosts promotions such as the Grand Hand promotion throughout the year; and, as you can see from the explanation given above, they are not difficult to take advantage of. You can find further reasons why you should be playing at the site in our [geolink href=”https://www.pokernewsreport.com/888-poker”]review of 888Poker[/geolink]; but don´t wait too long before visiting the site, as the Grand Hand promotion only runs until Tuesday 18th December.
