Review of promotions of poker rooms for the New Year

18.12.2018
Partypoker, Major tournament series, Pokerstars, 888Poker, GGNetwork

So, according to the pokerscout website, today the traffic situation (average daily traffic) in the top 5 poker rooms looks like this:

  1. Pokerstars
  2. Winamax
  3. PartyPoker
  4. 888Poker
  5. GGPoker

In fact, the top traffic situation looks like this:

But since the IDNPoker room severely restricts access for non-Asian players, and Pokerstars Europe is just the younger brother of the main site, it makes no sense to consider them in this article.

Go!

Pokerstars

For tournament players, Stars have prepared another bundle of money, which is planned to be distributed in the so-called Winter Series - the Winter Series of tournaments, which will be held from December 23 to January 7

The guaranteed prize pool is $ 40,000,000 in 60 tournaments. Buy-ins are as follows:

  • Micro series - from $ 0.55 to $ 5.50
  • Low series - up to $ 55
  • Medium series - up to $ 530
  • High series - up to $ 5,200

On January 6, 4 Main Events will be played for each buy-in category, in which a total of $ 4,500,000 will be awarded.

As usual, tickets to Winter Series tournaments and satellites can be won at $ 2.5 and $ 20 in Spin & Go. Of the additional benefits, a $ 25,000 freeroll has been announced, which will take place on December 11th. The ticket can be obtained by completing the Winter Series Challenge. What kind of tasks will be in these Challenges is still unclear. As they say - stay tuned for announcements and check the Challenges tab frequently.

Unfortunately for cash players, no promotions have been announced for them at the moment, but we will keep our finger on the pulse and as soon as something appears, we will definitely inform about it in our news feed.

Winamax

Just like Pokerstars, the French room has prepared promotions only for tournament players. But if in the case of Stars there is a considerable hope that the cash game will get something, then here the situation is different. There are big doubts that cash players will be pleased with anything monetary, but hope dies last.

So, for MTT lovers, Winamax has announced its already traditional Winamax Series. It will take place between December 6-17 and a total of € 13,000,000 will be drawn.

Yes, compared to $ 40 million from Stars this is not so much, but for such a relatively small room it is very good. A total of 165 tournaments with buy-ins from € 5 to € 1000 will be held, among which it is worth highlighting the 2 Million Event. As you might have guessed, this is the main tournament of the series, with a guarantee of 2 million euros, starting on January 9 and continuing right up to the 17th of the same month.

By the way, you can try to win a ticket to this tournament, costing only € 125, very soon - on December 23, a special Road to 2 Million tournament will take place. Buy-in € 20, guaranteed prize pool € 50,000, including 200 tickets to the 2 Million Event. Also, on January 12-16, tickets can be won at Expresso - the local counterpart of Spin & Go, with a buy-in of € 4

PartyPoker

PartyPoker will delight you with a variety of promotions, some of which are already coming to an end. For example, Christmas Advent will end on December 23rd, so you can still win one of the following prizes:

  • free bets on sports events
  • tickets for MTT
  • Cashback points
  • free spins on slots

In order to take part in the promotion, you just need to open a special calendar every day in the form of a pop-up window in the PartyPoker lobby and select Opt-in (take part). This should be done every day. And in order to get the actual prize, you just need to collect 1 Cashback point in any poker game.

Further, from December 23 to January 6, Christmas Freeze will take place. Yes, you guessed it - this is a series of tournaments again. This time with a total guarantee of $ 10 million.

Here's what you are offered:

  • buyins: $ 3.30 - $ 1050
  • number of tournaments: 201
  • the largest tournament prize pool: $ 300 thousand

By the way, satellites to the Christmas Freeze series tournaments are already taking place, entries from $ 0.55!

And that is not all!

The Big Game tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $ 1 million was announced today. Moreover, such a tournament is now promised to be held monthly.

Key features of The Big Game:

  • date: December 30
  • Prize pool: at least $ 1 million
  • starting stack: 1,000,000
  • blind levels: 16 minutes each
  • ticket price: $ 5200

Naturally, there will be a lot of satellites for this tournament, with buy-ins from $ 1.1, and they are already taking place, hurry up to register.

888Poker

Unfortunately, 888 Poker has not announced any New Year promotions at this time. As already stated above - follow the announcements.

GGPoker

Similar to PartyPoker, GGPoker has prepared promotions for both cashiers and tournament players under the general name Christmas Cracker. The promotional period will run from December 23 to January 2.

For MTT lovers, GoodGame Poker has organized a series of daily tournaments called the Holiday Haul Series, where, in addition to cash prizes, real ones will be drawn, from an Amazon $ 200 gift card to Xbox One S. The full tournament schedule looks like this:

The promotion for cash players was named Merry Chinese Cash-mas Giveaway. To receive the prize, you need to play 500 hands from which the rake was taken. Hands must be played during the promotional period (December 23rd to January 2nd), and at the end of this period you will receive a random prize of $ 5, $ 10 or $ 100. Yes, not very thick, but it's better than 888Poker :)
