A fun new promotion called The Grand Hand was launched recently at 888poker that awards cash and prizes to players simply for winning a hand while holding certain hole cards. The specific hole cards needed to win the prizes will change on a daily basis and are known as the “Hand of the Day.”
Players have two chances every day to win cash prizes from $1 to $1,000 or a free ticket to special $6,000 freerolls that will be held twice daily for the duration of the promotion which is set to run from June 17 through August 7. The Grand Hand promo is designed for the hot, summer months, adding some cold cash to the bankrolls of many players who win a hand with the specified Hand of the Day.
The poker client will list each day’s winning hand, such as pocket queens or 67 suited, etc. Players who win the hand while holding those particular cards will be awarded a scratchcard. Simply scratch the card to redeem your prize, with prizes set at either $1, $10, $100, $1,000, or a ticket to a $6,000 Grand Hand Tournament.
$12,000 In Daily Payouts Via Freeroll Tournaments
The vast majority of the prizes will be tournament tickets. Players who win freeroll tickets can then choose between the $6,000 Grand Hand Skills Tournament that’s held daily at 7:30 pm GMT or the $6,000 Grand Hand Lucky Tournament which is an All-In Shootout that requires no skill or even an appearance beyond registering for the event. The All-In Shootout will be hosted daily at 11:30 pm GMT.
Just about every 888poker player is eligible to participate in The Grand Hand promotion. All that’s required is an 888poker account, a minimum of one real-money deposit, and to have placed at least a $1 wager over the last two years.
Other rules that 888poker customers need to be aware of with regard to The Grand Hand giveaway are that cash game, MTT and SitNGo players are all invited to participate. Tournament players must buy-in for events of at least $1 and seeing the flop is NOT required to win the hand and receive a scratchcard.
Cash gamers including fast-fold SNAP Poker players must play at table stakes of $0.02/$0.05 at a minimum. Also, cash game players MUST see the flop in order to win the hand and the accompanying scratchcard prize.
