LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 1, 2012) - Let's Party! This weekend sees her majesty the Queen celebrate her Diamond jubilee- that's 60 years on the throne. And ahead of all the fun and festivities, online poker giants, Sky Poker, have unveiled their 4-day poker programme, giving registered poker players the chances to win huge cash prizes.

Sky Poker will be hosting uninterrupted poker events throughout the extended weekend, offering £60,000 in guarantees and giving poker players the chance to win regal-like cash prizes across the four days of celebrations.

Starting on Saturday 2nd June, here's what Sky Poker has in store for the Diamond Jubilee weekend:

Saturday 2nd June

• 8pm: £10,000 Super Bounty Hunter - £22 buy-in

• 9pm: £2,000 HU Shuffle - £55 buy-in

Sunday 3rd June

• 8pm: £20,000 Jubilee Super Roller - £110 buy-in, LIVE on Sky Poker TV

• 9pm: £5,000 Bounty Hunter - £55 buy-in

Monday 4th June

• 8pm: £10,000 Bounty Hunter - £33 buy-in

Tuesday 5th June

• 8pm: £5,000 Open - £22 buy-in

• 9pm: £4,000 (Timed Tournament)

To play in these special evening events- starting at either 20:00 or 21:00 each night- poker players will have to either buy-in and play, or qualify for events through scheduled daily satellite rounds.

Probably the most anticipated event across the whole schedule is Sky Poker's Jubilee Super Roller, offering players a whopping £20,000 grand prize for the eventual winner. The event, which is likely to attract the very best poker players, can be entered by paying the £110 buy-in fee or through earlier satellite rounds. The event will also be broadcast on Sky Poker TV, giving players the perfect opportunity to watch poker online and pick up hints and tips.

With £60,000 up for grabs and four days of uninterrupted poker action, the Jubilee celebrations might be bigger than poker players had anticipated. God Save the Queen!
