Check Out the €50,000 Betfair Winter Challenge
Dark mornings. Even darker nights. Freezing temperatures. You’ll be hardpressed to find someone who loves the harsh winter months. That is unless you talk to a Betfair Poker player because they are currently enjoying the €50,000 Winter Challenge; are you?
The Betfair Poker Winter Challenge has been running since Dec. 4 and comes to an end on Dec. 31 so you still have ample opportunity to get involved and get your hands on some cash.
This promotion revolves around completing up to two daily missions. Completing Mission 1 awards a ticket to a €1,000 Winter Challenge freeroll and unlocks Mission 2. You win another €1,000 Winter Challenge freeroll ticket if you complete Mission 2 during the same day.

The €1,000 Winter Challenge freerolls take place twice a day, every day, until Dec. 31. They shuffle up and deal at 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. GMT and are all-in shootout tournaments, which means everyone is set all-in before each hand and Lady Luck decides the winner.
Each freeroll pays out the top 350 places, with a min-cash being worth €1 and the winner taking home a nice €100; all prizes are paid in cash.
