888 Poker is giving players the opportunity to win free seats in selected XL Eclipse events by completing personal challenges or reloading their accounts.
September is going to be a big month for online poker tournaments. All three of the major poker networks are hosting major tournament series, and while 888 Poker´s XL Eclipse series (from September 10th to September 24th) may be smaller than PokerStars´ WCOOP and Party Poker´s PowerFest, players at 888 Poker are being given a huge opportunity to qualify for selected XL Eclipse events for free.
Most existing real money players at 888 Poker will have already received an email explaining how the “XL Eclipse Qualifiers” promotion works, but for those who haven´t – or for those who have ignored the pop up announcement when logging into their accounts – here is a brief rundown. Details of how players who have not yet funded their accounts and new players can get involved follow below.
The XL Eclipse Qualifiers Promotion for Existing Players
If you are an existing real money player at 888 Poker, when you click on the link in the email or in the pop up announcement, you will receive two tournament tickets for a free-to-enter XL Eclipse qualifier. There is a choice of three qualifiers to choose from:
- An XL Eclipse qualifier to the Mini Opening Event takes place every day at 1:30pm (all times GMT). The top thirty players in each will win seats in the $12.00 buy-in event on September 10th.
- An XL Eclipse qualifier to the $300,000 guaranteed Opening Event takes place every day at 4:30pm. The top ten players in each qualifier will win a $160.00 seat to the September 10th tournament.
- An XL Eclipse qualifier to the $1 million guaranteed XL Main Event takes place every day at 7:30pm. The top three players in each daily qualifier will win seats into the tournament scheduled for September 24th.
Players who win seats will be registered automatically for the target event, while those who don´t win seats can win further qualifier entry tickets by completing personalized challenges or by playing the XL Eclipse Wheel game in the poker software. The XL Eclipse Wheel game also offers prizes of seats in special XL Celebration Tournaments at 9:30am and 11:30pm each day – each with prize pools of $1,000.
How to Get Involved if You Have Not Yet Funded Your Account
If you already have an account with 888 Poker, but have not yet funded it, you can get involved in the XL Eclipse Qualifiers promotion by making a deposit of $10.00 or more with the 888 Poker bonus code “ECLIPSE10”. You will then receive an email from 888 Poker which includes a link through which you will be able to claim three qualifier tickets plus be eligible to play the XL Eclipse Wheel game.
However, it is important to note that if you use this bonus code to fund your account, you will forgo the Welcome bonus package offered by 888 Poker. As this includes a 100% match on first deposits up to $400, seven entry tickets for $500 Depositors´ Freerolls, two entry tickets for $1,000 Depositors´ Freerolls and an entry into the First Depositors Challenge Tournament, you may want to think twice before taking advantage of this opportunity.
An Extra Special Offer for New Players
New players – those who have never before registered for an account with 888 Poker – have the opportunity to take advantage of an extra special offer. Instead of using the bonus code mentioned above, simply [geolink href=”https://www.pokernewsreport.com/888-poker”>visit our 888 Poker review page[/geolink] and click on one of the yellow bars with the text that reads “Visit www.888poker.com”.
The link will take you to a landing page from which you will be able to claim up to $88.00 in free poker money (the value of this offer depends of your country of residence) and a 100% bonus on your first deposit up to $600. You will also receive your Depositors Freeroll and Challenge Tournament entry tickets, plus be able to claim two tournament tickets for the free-to-enter XL Eclipse qualifiers.
