  • Check out the amazing prizes on offer in the Rio Showdown MTT Series at Unibet.

Online poker is alive and well, and if you head to Unibet Poker between August 5-21, 2016 to compete in the Rio Showdown MTT Series you may be fortunate enough to win and travel to Brazil. You and four other Unibet player could win a once in a lifetime travel experience that they’ll cherish forever.

The Rio Showdown MTT Series consists of 65 online poker tournaments with buy-ins of €0, €2, €4, and €10, and you earn points based on your finishing position in each of those 65 events. Only your best 25 results count towards the leaderboard so it is definitely worth your while playing in as many events as you can in order to increase your chances of climbing the leaderboard.

Whoever finishes at the top of the leaderboard wins a Brazil adventure, which, we will be honest, looks absolutely amazing. The winner jets off to Brazil to go tracking jaguars. Yes. Jaguars. I mean, it could be slightly terrifying to be on the lookout for a giant lethal cat, but amazing nonetheless. On top of the jaguars, the package consists of:

  • Five-night stay for two people in an eco-lodge
  • Daily animal tracking with a nature conservationist by motorboat, 4x4, and horseback (the jaguar part)
  • All meals are included
  • €2,500 paid in cash into your Unibet account to cover flights and other expenses
