Beat the Heat with June Poker Promotions

THE WEEKLY SHUFFLE, 2012-06-10, by Ozone

Many online poker rooms are running creative new promotions right now awarding extra value to their players. Here's a rundown of some of the best online poker promotions running this June:

Poker770's $500 Rake Race

Poker770, a skin on the iPoker Network, is giving away $500 this month exclusively to PokerTips readers. The premise is simple: the top seven players who generate the most rake in June will receive the following prizes:

1st: $180
2nd: $100
3rd: $80
4th: $50
5th: $40
6th: $25
7th: $25

This promotion is only available to players who create a new account at Poker770 through a link from PokerTips in the time since this promotion was announced.

A leaderboard will be made public at the end of this week so players can monitor their progress in the rake race. At this time, all prizes are still very much up for grabs, so create an account at Poker770 today to take advantage of this extra value being given away.

Poker770 offers one of the best first-time deposit bonuses in all of online poker, a 200% bonus up to $2,000.

For players wanting to test out the site, they'll give you $7.70 for free simply for creating an account, no deposit required. To receive this bonus, download the software, create an account, and send an email (from the same email address you registered with) to promotions@poker770.co.uk which includes the code "BonPok".

Party Poker's Championship Challenge

Party Poker is running a promotion that coincides with a certain large European football tournament taking place this summer. Play in their 'Championship Challenge' and receive one of 64 different football players every time you earn 10 PartyPoints.

Each player comes with a prize with some players awarding instant prizes. Collect a whole team of players and receive an additional cash bonus reaching as high as $1,200 for Poland. Collect players from all four teams in any of the four different groups and receive a larger group bonus as high as $7,000 in the case of Group A.

Collect all 64 players on the board and Party Poker will award you with a bonus of $100,000!

Many of the prizes in the Championship Challenge are entries to freeroll tournaments with prize pools ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. The freerolls take place from July 5th through the 8th.

The Championship Challenge is over at the end of June or whenever all players have been given away.

Until June 22nd, Party Poker is giving away $/£/€5 free simply for creating an account. No deposit is required to receive this bonus. Pay them a visit today and receive your first football player card after earning just 5 PartyPoints.

888 Poker's Euromania

Another online poker promotion that seems to conspicuously coincide with a major European football tournament. Interesting...

888 Poker's Euromania promotion is giving away $20,000 through a series of tournaments each with a buy-in of $0.08. During group play of the European tournament, there are daily events with $100 prize pools. The pot is raised to $500 for quarterfinal matchups. On days of semi-final matchups, the $0.08 buy-in events will have a prize pool of $2,000. On June 30th, the date of the European tournament final, the prize pool will be $5,000 at 888 Poker.

What's more is 888 Poker is holding instant 10% up to $50 deposit bonuses until June 19th when you enter the country code of a team in the European tournament followed by "2012". For example, England is "ENG2012", Spain is "ESP2012", etc. If your team wins the Euro tournament, you'll receive the instant bonus once again.

This is a great promotion for players looking to build a bankroll since the buy-in for each tournament is just eight cents. Create an account at 888 Poker today and receive $8 free, no deposit required.

Titan Poker's Cash Point

Over $250,000 is being given away this month to cash game players at Titan Poker. Simply register for a "no-play" sit-'n'-go called "Cash Point Participation SNG" and you'll be in the running in three weekly cash race leaderboards.

The "Micro" tier leaderboard includes stakes ranging from $0.02/$0.04 - $0.05/$0.10.

The "Low" tier leaderboard includes stakes ranging from $0.10/$0.20 - $0.5/$1.

The "Med/High" tier leaderboard includes stakes of $1/$2 and higher.

There's a twist to the Cash Point promotion. In order to generate leaderboard points, players must participate in a qualifying hand. A qualifying hand is a hand in which 3 or more players participate after the flop is dealt.

The micro stakes group is permitted a maximum of 40 qualifying hands per day. Low stakes can generate points from 50 qualifying hands. The Med/High group can receive points from 60 qualifying hands per day.

This is an interesting promotion since players only receive points on hands with multi-way flops. Titan Poker is mixing up the action in cash games this month by giving players incentive to see more flops in order to earn points towards the Cash Point leaderboards.
