Two Cool New PKR Promotions

Promotions, 2008-09-10, by Ozone

The 3-D graphic online poker room PKR is launching two cool promotions aimed at sending players on fun, poker vacations.

The "Road to Vegas" promotion will award a unique WSOP package through freeroll tournaments each week for 33 consecutive weeks. These tournaments will be held each Monday beginning on September 15th when a $12,500 package to the 2009 WSOP Main Event will be given away. Each week, the package changes. For example, a $6,500 package to the $5,000 buy-in mixed hold'em event is being awarded during week two.

The qualifying criteria to win a seat in these freerolls changes from week to week. For example, if they are offering the chance to win a pot-limit Omaha package, the qualifying criteria will be based on pot-limit Omaha. With 33 freeroll packages up for grabs, players have as good of a shot at winning their trip to the 2009 WSOP at PKR as anywhere else.

A groundbreaking live tournament dubbed "PKR Live" will run from November 14th to 16th at London's Loose Cannon Club. Between now and then, up to 150 players will get their hands on a package to this live festival valued at $1,000. Day one of PKR Live will warm players up with a $60 freezeout tournament. On day two, a $500 event will begin. The next day, finalists from the $500 event will chase the $20,000 first place prize while those who busted out enjoy a $10,000 freeroll tournament.

Packages to PKR Live are being given away through around-the-clock satellites. The top five players on the site's multi-table tournament leaderboard will receive a free package.

Please note that PKR offers a special first-time deposit bonus to PokerTips readers of 75% up to $250. To claim this bonus, use code ptips1 when depositing.
