Recent Online Poker Promotions

THE WEEKLY SHUFFLE, 2010-11-07, by Ozone

There are a couple of interesting new promotions at online poker rooms that we thought our readers might be interested in. Without further ado, let's get to it.

Party Poker's Gladiator Promotion

Party Poker is holding an interesting promotion this month called "The Gladiator". As is typical with promotions at Party Poker, this one is fairly complicated, so read carefully.

Players can qualify for one of three freerolls based on their play in the month of November:

•Entry to a $5,000 freeroll is earned by collecting 10 PartyPoints on different 5 days this month.
•Entry to a $10,000 freeroll can be earned by collecting either 10 PartyPoints on 10 days this month or 20 PartyPoints on 5 days this month.
•Entry to a $25,000 freeroll can be earned by collecting either 10 PartyPoints on 15 days this month, 20 PartyPoints on 10 days this month, or 50 PartyPoints on 5 days this month.

Note that one does not need to collect the requisite PartyPoints on consecutive days to qualify for these freerolls, all of which start play at 14:00 ET on December 4th.

Not only can players at Party Poker earn entry into a freeroll in this promotion, but they can also collect cash prizes as well. The smallest cash prize available is $15 which can be earned by collecting 20 PartyPoints on 15 different days or 10 PartyPoints on 20 different days. Anyone who collects a cash prize will receive entry to the $25,000 freeroll. Note that only one cash prize can be collected (the largest one you earn is the one you get).

The largest cash prize is a $10,000 seat to the WPT L.A. Poker Classic but one needs to earn 1,500 PartyPoints on every day of this month which means 99.99% of people reading this are already ineligible. A more attainable prize, for example, is $250 which can be earned for collecting 200 PartyPoints on 15 different days in November.

Visit Party Poker to receive a first-time deposit bonus of 100% up to $500 by using bonus code TIPS500 and be sure to opt-in to The Gladiator promotion on their website.

Titan Poker's MT3 Promotion

Titan Poker is giving multi-table tournament players extra reason to play at their site over the next three months. From November 1st through January 31st, play as many MTTs at Titan Poker as possible to collect MTT leaderboard points. They are putting $50,000 up for grabs to players who work their way onto the MT3 leaderboard.

Each month, $12,000 will be shared among the top 200 players on the MT3 leaderboard. But the top 500 players each month receive entry to a $2,700 freeroll as well. The largest monthly prize is $1,500 to the leaderboard winner while the smallest prize is $15 to places 151-200.

The remaining $14,000 will be awarded to the winner of a 10 person single-table tournament in the form of a winner's choice package to a variety of offline tournaments in 2011. The 10 players who vie for the $14,000 package will be the 10 who collect the most MT3 leaderboard points over the course of the entire three month promotion.

Head on over to Titan Poker today to get your hands on the $50,000 being passed out in the MT3 promotion. Use first-time deposit code tips to receive a 150% bonus up to $600.
