PokerRoom Launches 'Poker Island' TV Promo – Winner to get $100,000 sponsorship deal!
PokerRoom is set to award those who dare with instant celebrity status and a massive $100,000 sponsorship deal when you take part in their Poker Island TV promo!
Imagine spending your time on a luxurious, secluded island in southwestern Europe in a fully serviced and catered for 'Poker Villa'. Here, you will be housed with other poker players like yourself indulging in such activities as wakeboarding, jet skiing, paragliding, mountain biking, traditional massages, boxing lessons, boat cruises as well as an array of daily poker challenges that reward you with even more bonuses. Players will have scrumptious first class cuisine prepared daily for them with full chauffeur service throughout their stay – consider it a fully paid for, five-star poker camp in paradise!
Action at the Poker Villa will begin on Monday, July 7th and will run for a maximum of four months. Players will record daily TV diaries sharing their highs and lows which will be broadcast to millions across bwin.com and TV.PokerNews.com. Apart from having the time of their lives indulging in the indoor and outdoor activities, each week players will also take part in weekly challenges resulting in two participants leaving the Villa and two others taking their place. The winners of each weekly challenge (14 in total) will go into the 'Big Final' to battle it out for a massive $100,000 sponsorship deal.
The $100,000 sponsorship deal will cover:
WPT 5 Diamond Classic (package worth $20,000)
WPT Championships (package worth $30,000)
WSOP* (package worth $20,000)
