Play With Sky Poker Over the Easter Weekend

Earn Extra Rewards and Play in Exciting Tournaments With Sky Poker

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 5, 2012) - Sky Poker has always provided fantastic rewards and thrilling tournaments for online poker players of all abilities to enjoy. With no download required, join Sky Poker now for a completely free £10 welcome bonus.

Right now, all players can earn even more rewards with Sky Poker by playing during the daily Happy Hours. To help give players an extra boost in the Cash for Points ladder, Sky Poker will be running five Happy Hours every day of the week. To qualify for the Happy Hour bonuses, play poker with Sky between the hours of 11-12am, 1-2pm, 4-5pm, 6-7pm, and 11-12pm.

In that time, all Poker Points earned on cash game tables from 2-4p and upwards will get an increase of 50%, giving players a great opportunity to enhance their Cash for Points payout!

Cash games at Sky Poker have also got more exciting with the addition of Action Tables. Action Tables see the small and big blind post the same amount, which means that you can now play a 10p/10p or £1/£1 game.

With the small blind and big blind now set to the same amount, each individual pot starts with more cash in the middle, and with both blinds now able to check their options pre-flop, blind on blind battles take on more significance.

Another new addition to Sky Poker is the latest iteration of the Sky Poker Survivor Series. With entry from just £1, the new and improved tournament boasts a weekly £1,000 prize pool. Each series will only run from Sunday to Saturday, and to qualify for the next day's action, players need to finish within the top 50% of the tournament. If you do get knocked out, however, you can still buy-in to the following day.

For those seeking a bigger prize pool, there is still the opportunity to join the fifth round of the Sky Poker Tour. The latest leg is a one day event with a £110 buy-in and 170 player cap, and will be taking place at the Les Croupiers in Cardiff on the 28th April. As well as a guaranteed prize pool of £250,000, the eventual winner will also win a seat to the Sky Poker Tour Grand Final, set to be played in September at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham.

Last but not least, Sky Poker are offering the opportunity to win an once-in-a-lifetime £10,000 package holiday to Las Vegas. Go to the lobby now and register for one of the many 'Viva Las Vegas' satellites - one player recently won his £10,000 package from a £2.50 satellite! You can also buy directly into the next final, which is to be held on the Sunday 29th 2012 at 9pm.
