Bet365 is running a three-tier Winter Warrior promotion, offering the chance to win cash prizes and superb gifts, and to get rakeback on your poker action.
Regular visitors to TexasHoldemPokerOnline.com will be aware that each month skins on the iPoker Network host a mission-based promotion, and that Bet365 Poker often provides its players with easier missions to complete than some other skins hosting the same promotion.
For December, Bet365 Poker´s Winter Warrior promotion follows the same format as its network partners. However, as well as giving away €100,000 in cash prizes and superb gifts, the site is also offering players the opportunity to get up to an extra €1,000 in rakeback.
How the Winter Warrior Promotion Works
Bet365 Poker´s Winter Warrior promotion is broken down into three elements – “Mini Warrior”, “Pro Warrior” and “Elite Warrior”.
In the “Mini Warrior” element, you will be asked to complete a daily mission. This can range from winning a hand in a cash game with pocket Aces as your hole cards to winning a Twister Sit & Go game with a buy-in of €10.00 or more. The missions change according to the day of the week, and you will be offered a choice of two missions from which to select each day.
When you complete your mission, you will be awarded a seat in a daily All-In Shootout. All-In Shootouts are games in which players are all-in every hand until just a winner remains. Although you have to register manually for each day´s All-In Shootout, you do not have to be logged into your Bet365 Poker account when the event gets underway at 8:00pm (GMT), as you have no control over the action.
From this week up until Sunday 25th December, each daily All-In Shootout will have a cash prize pool of €1,000. From Monday 26th December to Sunday 1st January, the prize pool increases to €2,500 and includes a first prize of a €500 voucher that can be redeemed for superb gifts such as an Apple iPad Mini 4, a Samsung Galaxy S6, a PS4 or Xbox One with FIFA 17 and headphones, or a HP Touchscreen Laptop.
How to Become a Pro Warrior
If you complete three missions in any week during the promotion, and play in three of the daily All-In Shootouts, you will receive a ticket for a Pro Warrior All-In Shootout on Sundays at 8:30pm. The Pro Warrior events have cash prize pools of €5,000 for the first three Shootouts – increasing to €15,000 in cash and a €5,000 holiday voucher on Sunday 25th December and Sunday 1st January.
You have to register manually for the Pro Warrior All-In Shootout of your choice and, unlike the daily All-In Shootouts, you can get an extra ticket to the weekly event by making a deposit of €20.00 or more into your Bet365 Poker account. If you are lucky enough to win the €5,000 holiday voucher, you have up to two years to decide where you would like to go and sort the holiday out with Bet365´s agents.
Get Up to €1,000 Rakeback as an Elite Warrior
Whether you are participating in the Mini Warrior and Pro Warrior missions or not, you should make sure you opt into the Elite Warrior element of the promotion. The Elite Warrior element of the promotion rewards players with cash bonuses for reaching specific rake milestones before midnight on 31st December. Here is how much you can add to your account over the next couple of weeks:
|Rake and/or Tournament Fees Paid||Cash Award||Total Award|
|€ 500.00||€ 50.00||€ 50.00|
|€ 1,000.00||€ 50.00||€ 100.00|
|€ 1,500.00||€ 50.00||€ 150.00|
|€ 2,500.00||€ 100.00||€ 250.00|
|€ 4,000.00||€ 150.00||€ 400.00|
|€ 6,500.00||€ 250.00||€ 650.00|
|€ 10,000.00||€ 350.00||€ 1,000.00|
The rakeback rate of 10% may not make you jump up and down with as much excitement as when you open your presents on Christmas Day; however, you have to remember that the Elite Warrior rakeback offer is in addition to the regular benefits of the Bet365 Poker VIP Club. If you were to pay €10,000 in rake between today and New Year´s Eve, you would earn sufficient Merit Points to exchange through the VIP Club for a further €1,500 in cash or a €3,000 bonus.
