It must be the festive spirit filling the air, but in recent weeks there have been a relatively high number of brand new poker offers and promotions being released across a number of different top UK poker sites.
This week we are going to take a look at a $2,000 freeroll offer from William Hill Poker, but first up is a chance to win up to £50 in cash with no added risk by playing on Victor’s Wheel at BetVictor Poker.
Victor’s Wheel – Spin it to Win it at BetVictor Poker
Players at BetVictor Poker can earn themselves unlimited cash prizes of up to £50, or secure extra starting chips for a $10,000 poker tournament, thanks to the bounteous gifts on offer when you take a spin of Victor’s Wheel at BetVictor Poker.
The good news is that this promotion does not require any additional cash or spending to take advantage of the offer. Simply log in to the site and play your choice of real money Hold’em and Omaha cash games and Blaze tables with blinds from £0.05/0.10 to £2/£4.
Each time you play at one of these qualifying tables and make a contribution to the rake (such as by making a bet or by adding the small or big blind to the pot), then you will take a step closer to earning your free spin. BetVictor Poker software will keep a record of how many times you contribute to the rake and for every 25 hands that you contribute to the rake, regardless of whether you win or lose the hand, you will earn a free spin on Victor’s Wheel.
To access the game you need to open the Victor’s Wheel tab in the Promotions section of the site, under the My Account section. This will load up the Victor’s Wheel software and by clicking on it as you play at the table, you will be able to see how close you are to earning your next spin.
Once you have played in 25 raked hands, the Spin button in the centre of the wheel will become active and you simply click the button to start the wheel in motion and you are then guaranteed to win one of the following prizes:
You can spin the wheel as many times as you like, so play 25 raked hands and you will earn one spin, play 50 and you will earn two spins and so on.
Play 250 raked hands though and not only do you get 10 free spins of Victor’s Wheel, but you are also awarded the chance to win an additional mystery prize from the selection shown above.
There is a starting prize fund of £5,000 for the Victor’s Wheel promotion but the more BetVictor Poker players who participate in the offer, then the greater this prize fund will grow to meaning that there may well be up to £20,000, or even more cash available to be won over the duration of the offer.
The good news doesn’t end there as once you have played 25 raked hands as part of the promotion, you are automatically guaranteed a seat at the $10,000 Victor’s Wheel 2nd Chance Tournament, which is scheduled to take place at 20:45 CET on January 28th 2014.
You will start the tournament with 1,000 chips, though if you have won any extra as part of the promotion, they will be credited to your stack before play starts.
Players have until midnight on the 19th January 2014 to earn their seat in the event and to earn free spins, so why not hit the cash tables at BetVictor Poker now and earn yourself a free tournament seat and the chance to win either free chips, or bonus cash simply for playing?
William Hill Poker have recently launched their own poker-assistant software called Poker Coach and to celebrate the fact, the site is running its own promotion, offering the chance to gain entry into two $1,000 WH Poker Coach Freeroll events on December 15th and 29th at 7pm.
To qualify, simply download Poker Coach from the William Hill Poker site, then install it onto your system.
Once done, you then will need to either –
To qualify for the first $1,000 freeroll event, you need to have completed either of the tasks above by the 14th December, so you’ll have to get cracking in order to earn your seat for the December 15th tournament.
However, you have until 29th December to complete either of the tasks outlined above again in order to earn yourself a free seat at the $1,000 freeroll event, with the qualification period for the freeroll lasting from midnight on the 15th December through to 11.59pm on 28th December.
The reason William Hill are offering this promotion is to support and broaden the awareness of its new Poker Coach software.
This is William Hill’s own poker tool which is designed to assist players when playing Texas Hold’em poker by analysing the hand and providing the player with real-time information about the hand, their likelihood of hitting an out card, the strength of the hand, their position in the betting and much more.
Poker Coach is freely available to download from the William Hill site and is a particularly useful tool for beginner players who are unaware of some of the more complicated aspects of poker play.
This includes issues like the importance of counting your outs, the importance of position at the table and the different types of bets to make given the relative strength of your hand and the opposition you face.
The positive aspect about this offer is that there is no lower limit on buy-ins to qualify for the offer, so players who want to play microstakes games or MTTs or Sit & Go events can still do so and still qualify for each of the $1,000 freeroll events.
