Earlier this week, Full Tilt Poker announced the names of four tour ambassadors to represent the online poker room at all stops of the UK & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT), including the upcoming FTP Galway Festival from July 27 through August 12. The series is set to be the biggest live poker festival ever held in Europe with a total of 60 events encompassing a huge range of variants, highlighted by the €1,000,000 guaranteed UKIPT Galway Main Event in early August.
Now, Full Tilt Poker has announced a series of prizes, competitions and boosted benefits for those who qualify online including a Last Longer Sponsorship Prize Package, which will give one lucky qualifier buy-ins and expenses to every remaining main event on the UKIPT Season 4. How does one win such a package? Just win your way into the €1,000,000 Main Event on Full Tilt Poker and then outlast all other qualifiers. What's more, if a qualifier is to win the Main Event, they'll be awarded a custom avatar to use online at Full Tilt Poker.
“Full Tilt Poker gives players a unique online experience and enhancing the live experience is just one of the ways we reward players,” says Sarne Lightman, Head of Marketing at Full Tilt Poker. “We are proud to be involved in Europe’s biggest-ever poker festival, and our players and our promotions will help make it one of the most memorable.”
Here are some other benefits to be given away at the Galway Festival:
- A $10,000 Second Barrel Freeroll, running at Full Tilt Poker on August 18th, for every registered qualifier who doesn’t cash in the Main Event.
- Fourteen $635 FTOPS XXIII Main Event tickets will be given away to the player who bubbles the Main Event and to winners of special events taking place throughout the two weeks.
- Full Tilt Poker is rewarding cash game players, who have yet to win a Main Event seat or buy in directly, with the chance to win their €1,100 seat during the festival with the Bad Beat Jackpot. Running from July 29 through August 5, cash game players can turn bad luck into good if they have the highest-ranked losing hand of the day — cash game tables will run non-stop at the Full Tilt Poker Village.
- All participants can also take advantage of the VIP-style Full Tilt Poker Bus, which has been specially fitted with poker tables so players won’t miss a moment of action as they travel to and from both the Galway Races at Ballybrit Racecourse and Caesars Palace casino in nearby Salthill.
If you can't make it to the FTP Galway Festival, fear not as PokerNews will be bringing you all the action from the Main Event, as well as the €2,000 UKIPT High Roller and the €10,000 UKIPT Super High Roller, all of which will be covered in the PokerNews Live Reporting Blog.
