VideoPoker.com Announces 2009 Video Poker Madness Contest

Free Online Contest Pits Video Poker Players Against One Another in Their Own March Madness Tournament With Thousands of Dollars in Prizes and Cash at Stake

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - February 23, 2009) - Every Spring, college basketball lovers enjoy "March Madness." VideoPoker.com, the Internet's number one video poker site, today unveiled a new contest where video poker aficionados will be invited to challenge one another online for the chance to win a dream vacation to Las Vegas, including airfare for two or a $1,000 gas card, five nights at a luxury condominium at the MGM Signature Tower, and $500 in spending money. The tournament is open to anyone 21 or older -- to register, just visit: http://www.videopoker.com/madness.

The contest is free to enter, participants can enter as often as they like, and there are no software downloads required. They can play in any, or all, of four different competitive "brackets," where each bracket has an exciting and fun new video poker game to play. These games are "Super Times Pay Poker," "Ultimate X Poker," "Quick Quads Poker," and "Good Times Pay Poker."

Players get to play 200 hands of the game they choose as many times as they like. Final scores are submitted, displayed and ranked against all participants during a one week "qualifying" period. The top 16 scores in each of the four game brackets will then be ranked, and players will compete against one another until a final champion is crowned on April 6th -- the same day as the NCAA basketball championship game.
