LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2012) - With up to £20,000 in cash set to be won on Sky Poker this October, make sure that you play some cash games now for a chance to be crowned a King of Cash! To be in with a shot, you must simply enter the promo code KING in "My Account" before the deadline on October 20th.
The Kings of Cash promotion is very simple, as every time that you play cash games and are involved in a raked hand, you will earn poker points. These will then be used to rank players in order of the number of points earned from cash games.
The Kings of Cash promotion will then split these players into three tiers (Lower, Middle, Upper), with these tiers being based on different blind levels. So to be part of the Lower tier, you must play with a blind of 2p-10p, while a blind of 15p-25p will place you in the Middle tier. But to qualify for the Upper tier, you will need to play with a blind of over 50p.
So what can you win? Well a total of £15,000 in cash prizes will be distributed amongst the top 20 in each tier. It is also possible to earn a bonus from more than one tier. So make sure that you join Sky Poker now and play in many cash games to be in a chance of winning some fantastic prizes!
In addition, anyone who enters the promotion and earns over 1,000 poker points or more throughout October (total points from cash games and tournaments) will be invited to the exclusive Freeroll in November with a £5,000 prize pool. The Freeroll will be capped at 1,500 runners, so eligible players will need to confirm their seat early on when the tournament is open for registration in the lobby in November.
Players should also not forget that all poker points you earn will count towards your Cash for Points bonus at the end of the month as well!
Earning poker points from cash games is very simple, as every time you play in real money cash games you will earn Poker Points. The amount of points you earn will depend on the stakes of the table. You will also be able to earn poker points from Sit & Go's and Tournaments.
