Party Poker has devised a unique way to bring football and poker fans under one umbrella. Although football fans will have to wait till August for the English football season to commence, the Old Trafford Stadium is literally buzzing with action. Party Poker players now have the golden opportunity to not only take part in a $365 buy-in NL Hold’em Tournament, which is scheduled to be held at Old Trafford, but also meet and interact with previous and present football stars.
Party Poker has been running satellite qualifiers to a weekly mega satellite called the $85 Road to Old Trafford from May 27 and will continue doing so till August 4. The top player of the $85 Road to Old Trafford will win a $1,575 prize package comprising the buy-in of $365 to the Old Trafford Main Event, a 3-night hotel stay, spending money worth $550, and charity donation worth $35.
Players who qualify at Party Poker will get the opportunity to not only play poker against previous and present players of Manchester United at Old Trafford, but also participate in a VIP tour of the stadium. In addition, they will get official merchandize and an official invitation to a VIP Player Party, where they can celebrate with football stars. The event is going to be a unique blend of poker and football, an ideal holiday for poker players who love football.
Party Poker is also running a number of satellites so that players can win only free seats to the $365 Old Trafford tournament.
Party Poker is also home to an exciting variant of high speed online poker called FastForward Poker, which eliminates the need for players to wait for the best hands. If players do not like their hole cards, they can just hit the Fast Fold button, after which they will be taken to a new poker table with new opponents and new hole cards. Party Poker is running a promotion called FastForward Challenge, giving players the opportunity to win poker bonuses worth anywhere in the range of $5 to $100. All players need to do is play FastForward Poker as much as they can and earn points. If players earn one point on four days in the course of one week, they will receive a bonus of $5; and if they earn one point daily for seven days, they will get a $10 bonus. Players can earn a maximum of $100 in this promotion.
