The Betfair Poker LIVE tour descends on London on Feb. 17 and you could win one of two $1,400 Main Event packages through our fantastic promotion. Two packages will be given away in our exclusive freeroll on Feb. 4 and all you have to do in order to qualify for it is to download Betfair Poker and earn 50 Player Points, and the chance at a $1,400 package is yours!
Players have until Feb. 1 to earn 50 Player Points — a very easy task. Player Points are awarded at a rate of 3.6 per $1 in rake at cash game tables and 3.6 per $1 in tournament fees which means you could earn your seat in the exclusive $2,800 Betfair Poker LIVE London Freeroll for less than $14! Anyone who earns 50 or more Player Points will automatically receive a ticket that grants them access to the freeroll on Feb. 4 where two packages will be given away to the first and second place finisher.
Each package consists of:
- A $650 Main Event buy-in for Betfair Poker LIVE London on Feb. 17
- $750 travel and accommodation allowance
- Betfair's legendary hospitality
With such low entry requirements, the freeroll should have no problem attracting the required 10 players to start. If you’re fortunate enough to win a seat, you’ll play in the Betfair Poker LIVE London Main Event, which is played in a "bounty hunter" format. With $100 out of each buy-in serving as a bounty, you don’t even need to make the money to pocket some cash.
The live Main Event takes place from Feb. 17 through 19 at the Fox Poker Club in the heart of London. The Fox Poker Club has a reputation for running some of the best tournaments in the capital so those who take part in the Betfair Poker LIVE London Main Event will be treated to a completely professional and thoroughly enjoyable experience.
The same event last year saw 171 players fight it out over the £39,330 prize pool, which was shared out among the top 26 finishers. The player who took home the lion's share of the money was Finnish player Arttu Pitakangas who defeated Portugal's Hugo Crus heads-up to scoop the £7,630 first place prize.
If the chance of winning a $1,400 package to Betfair Poker LIVE London for as little as $14 was not enough incentive to download Betfair Poker through PokerNews, then maybe the offer of a $250 sign-up bonus will be enough to twist your arm!
Players need to enter the bonus code "PNE250" and make a deposit of at least $10. Then for every 80 Player Points earned at the real money tables $10 will be released from their bonus accounts, up to a maximum of $250. Players have 60 days from triggering the bonus to clear the full amount.
