888 Poker is running a SNAP edition of its Grand Hand promotion in which players can win tournament tickets, no deposit bonuses, and cash prizes up to $1,000.
Regular players at 888Poker will likely be familiar with the site´s Grand Hand promotion by now as it has been run in several different formats over the past couple of years. The current promotion centres on the site´s fast-fold SNAP game and requires players to win hands during the post-flop action with a specified set of opening cards.
The specified set of opening hands changes every day, and – unusually for an 888Poker promotion – players may have to win qualifying hands more than once to win a prize. The site is sending emails to all eligible players in countries in which the promotion is being run, advising them of what their individual missions consist of on a daily basis.
More about the SNAP Grand Hand Promotion
If you have not received your email yet from 888Poker, this is how the promotion works. When you play SNAP cash games at stakes of $0.02/$0.05 or higher, you have to win a hand using a predetermined set of opening cards (see table below). The hand has to go past flop in order for the hand to qualify as a “Grand Hand”, and once you have completed your allocated number of Grand Hands for the day, a pop-up will appear on screen inviting you to scratch your scratch card to see what you have won.
Scratching the scratch card will reveal one of three prizes – a tournament ticket, a no deposit bonus, or a cash prize of up to $1,000. In the event you win a tournament ticket, it will be for an exclusive Grand Hand freeroll tournament with $2,000 in cash prizes played each day at 7:30pm GMT. No deposit bonuses have to be cleared in the same way as the 888 Poker first deposit bonus, and any cash amounts you win are yours to keep. There are no restrictions on cash wins before you can request a withdrawal.

Are You Eligible to Play the Grand Hand Promotion?
One of the reasons why you may not have received an email from 888Poker with your individual mission is that the promotion is only available to players who have made a real money deposit into their accounts in the past two years. If you have only played at 888Poker with the free no deposit poker bonus every player receives when they register an account with the site, you won´t be eligible to play the Grand Hand promotion.
An easy remedy is to visit 888Poker [isGeoAllowed room=”888poker”]using this link[/isGeoAllowed], and make your first real money deposit. Your deposit makes you not only eligible to play in the promotion but also to take advantage of an enhanced 100% match bonus up to $600. The maximum bonus is half as much again as the regular first deposit bonus offered by 888Poker (which is why you should use our link) and details of how to clear the bonus can be found here.
