LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 6, 2012) - It doesn't take a scientist at CERN to work out that poker fans simply love winning cash prizes, especially when there's 'smashing' sums of money up for grabs! Online poker giants, Sky Poker, take great pride in giving their customers ample chances to taste victory: serving up huge sums of money to add to the fun and excitement. It's why they're giving players the chance to bag £7,200 for winning both their daily Main Event and Mini Event games this week.
To win this accumulated jackpot total- for each week the prize remains elusive, Sky Poker ups the ante by adding another £100 into the pot- players must win both the Main Event, which kicks- off at 8pm, and the Mini Event following 15 minutes later.
Since its inception earlier this year, the lure of winning has proved too strong for free poker players. They've signed up in droves to take on the Main and Mini Events. Sky Poker estimate that both events are now amongst the most popular daily games/events played on the site.
And why wouldn't they be when there's a £1000 consolation prize awarded even if players don't end up winning the main jackpot fund? Sounds a bit too good to be true, but Sky Poker will give the money away to anyone who wins the Main Event at 8pm and reaches the final tables in the Mini Event. So who says it can't be a great night after all?
Once a lucky player has snapped up the jackpot total, Sky Poker will immediately reseed the prize fund with a £5000 cash injection!
So far, two lucky Welshmen have been the only winners of the prize. 'alan1506', real name Alan Jenkins, scooped up the biggest prize amount to date walking away with £6,800 after winning both the Main Primo and Mini Primo event way back in January. However he actually won over £10,000 on the night: having claimed first prize in the Primo beforehand. Nice work Alan!
