ldquo;The launch of Texas Hold’em and Omaha for UK players has been in our plans for a while now and we’re glad to finally announce the good news,” Tonybet UK representative Warren Lush said. “However, this is just a small part of what we have prepared for our British players. Along with the new games come a lot of exclusive promotions and special tournaments, not to mention the €100,000 guaranteed Glory Series starting on February 28th.”
With the addition of two of the most popular poker variations, the rapidly growing independent site is pampering its players with a wide range of special offers. This includes cash game, SnG and MMT races with €15,000 in guaranteed prizepools, the €10,000 freeroll league and many other exclusive deals and prizes.
“Last month we already rewarded one of our players with a Las Vegas package for the summer and we’re giving away one at the end of February as well. Each week we are awarding one of our players with a brand new iPhone6S as well as offering thousands of pounds in guaranteed prizepools. As Tonybet Poker is still a growing site, we have pretty huge overlays which presents additional value for players,” Mr. Lush said.
According to him, the biggest upcoming event is the €100,000 guaranteed Glory Series at the end of the month. However, up until its start, Tonybet Poker is applying a rake-free philosophy to its Holde’m and PLO cash game tables, which gives UK players plenty of time to try out the new games free of charge.
Together with the launch of Hold’em and Omaha, Tonybet Poker has implemented a number of new features to the site in the spirit of its “No balls – no glory” approach and aim to bring back fun to online poker. The changes cover both gameplay and promotions:
Introduction of straddles to rake free NLH/PLO online cash games;
Making 6 Max full ring on the site as standard;
Addition of 4 Max and Heads-up NLH/PLO games;
Making majority of tournaments 10,000 starting chips – commitment to big stack online poker.
€10.000 guaranteed in freerolls everyday;
iPhone 6S giveaway and special Las Vegas packages;
Each new sign-up will receive a free ticket worth €10 to a €5,000 guaranteed monthly event;
€15,000 in cash game, SnG and MTT races;
Online NLH/PLO Glory Series with €100,000 already earmarked in guarantees.
“There is a lot of talk these days that poker has become dull and that there’s no spark, and, as founder Tony G would say, it is lacking big heart,” Mr. Lush explained. “We’re on a mission to change that – it’s not just about being very generous through promotions including 10K in daily freerolls and scrapping rake, it is about the experience that we offer.”
Just over a week after introducing Hold’em and Omaha action to its UK players, Tonybet Poker is hosting its biggest online poker series in history. It kicks-off on February 28th and runs until March 6th hosting a total of 24 events in the course of just eight days. The buy-ins will range from €5 to €500 while the guaranteed prizepools for individual events go from €2,000 to €15,000. The series will feature rebuy and knockout tournaments with all the action taking place only at 6-max tables.
This Friday, Tonybet Poker will also start running satellite tournaments as well as freerolls rewarding tickets to the Glory Series events for just the fraction of the price and even for free. Another way to gain access is to take part in the €15,000 guaranteed Grinderz League which is giving away free tournament tickets along with the guaranteed cash prizes in weekly and monthly cash game, Sit & Go, and MTT leaderboard races.
The week-long Glory Series will conclude on the night of March 8 with its two biggest tournaments, the €200 Main Event and the €500 High Roller both rewarding at least €15,000 in guaranteed cash prizes.
