Expect the Unexpected at 888 Poker this Fall

Posted on by Roy Smith

Expect the Unexpected at 888 PokerYou can “Expect the Unexpected” this fall as 888 Poker is giving away more than $1 million in prizes in an exciting new free-to-enter promotion.

Like the majority of recent promotions at 888 Poker, “Expect the Unexpected” revolves around free-to-enter poker tournaments – three each day to be precise. Each tournament has a guaranteed prize pool of $3,000; but, in addition to their cash prizes, the top fifty players in each event will receive “unexpected” bonus prizes ranging from cash and tournament tickets to extra bonuses and 888 Poker merchandise.

The “Unexpected Giveaway” tournaments will be played every day until the 1st November at 00:05, 12:05 and 17:05 (GMT), and every current player with a real money account at 888 Poker will be sent an email with three tickets into the events. Extra tickets can be won by completing daily missions or by spinning the “Wheel of Mystery” – a free draw in which players can also win $5.00 tournament tickets, free bets and other mystery prizes.

Extra Cash for Completing Multiple Missions

Every day throughout the promotion, players can win two extra tickets to the “Unexpected Giveaway” tournaments for each daily mission they complete. The missions are pretty easy to achieve and will remain constant throughout the promotion period:

  • Play a minimum of forty raked hands at 888 Poker´s cash tables
  • Enter a multi-table poker tournament with a buy-in of $5.00 or more
  • Place at least $30.00 of bets at the 888 Casino via the PC poker client
  • Have a sports bet of $10.00 or more at 888 Sports via the PC poker client

The more missions a player completes, the more tournament tickets they will be awarded. Players who complete five or more missions within a week (Sunday to Saturday) will also be awarded a random cash prize of up to $100.00. To qualify for the prize, players must have completed at least two different missions within the five – for example, play forty raked hands between Monday and Thursday, and then enter a $5.00 tournament on Friday.

Make a Deposit to Take Advantage of the Wheel of Mystery

Players who make a deposit into their 888 Poker accounts during the promotion will be allowed to spin the “Wheel of Mystery” once every day – or twice every day if they are playing on the 888 Poker app between 17:00 and midnight. The “Wheel of Mystery” awards a stack of different prizes from entries into the “Unexpected Giveaway” tournaments to free bets at 888 Sports and 888 Casino.

New players registering an account for the first time will also be able to take advantage of this promotion, along with an exclusive 100% match bonus of up to $600.00 (follow our links to qualify for this offer) and up to $88.00 in free poker money (varies according to location) PLUS have a stab at qualifying for 888 Poker´s $100,000 guaranteed Sunday tournament for free!

There is plenty to like about 888 Poker right now. The site continues to grow in popularity, and has twice raised the guarantees on its daily and weekend feature tournaments in recent months. An excellent rewards program compliments a comprehensive range of cash games and poker tournaments (which you can read about in our 888 Poker review) AND, if you are looking to qualify for next month´s WSOPE qualifiers into the Main Event start at just $0.01!
