Ladbrokes Poker's VIP's treated to Vegas trips, Go-Karting and more!
By RTR Dennis
The Irish Poker Festival, a Chelsea FC game, Cheltenham Festival, Go Karting in London, the F1 British Grand Prix – these events all sound very entertaining and exciting, and they’re even better when you don’t have to pay for the festivities! Well, that's exactly what Ladbrokes Poker VIP members have been treated to recently. Here's a look at some of the events that lucky Ladbrokes VIP members have attended:
5 lucky poker players earned box seats at Cheltenham Festival through a freeroll tournament. Cheltenham Festival is one of the biggest and most prestigious horse racing events in the world, and it takes place at the beautiful Cheltenham Racecourse.
Go Karting and Meals in London
Everybody loves Go Karting, and so did the group of VIPs who earned a trip to the Tower Bridge track in London. Aside from getting to race on a brilliant Go Karting track, the crew also got to dine out for breakfast, lunch and supper; and with plenty of complimentary booze - but not 'til after the Go-Karting, we're sure!
World Darts Championship in London
Even if you're not an avid darts fan, the World Darts Championship still guarantees to provide enjoyment when you’re being served free drinks all night long in London’s luxurious Alexandria Palace. VIP members “itisajoke,” “PAULBLUFF99,” “ivorlot,” and “terminat-716” were all randomly selected by Ladbrokes to revel in the darts- and booze-packed prize package event.
Irish Poker Festival
Ladbrokes sponsored their own live tournament in Killarney called the Irish Poker Festival. This tourney offered a €250,000 guaranteed prize pool, and VIP Thomas Rolfe won the Main Event along with €100,000.
Chelsea FC VIP Seats
Four football-fanatical poker players were treated to a very special evening when Ladbrokes invited them to Stamford Bridge for a Chelsea FC match. And this Chelsea game is just one example of the many football-themed nights that Ladbrokes has run for its players.
The latest VIP event promotion that Ladbrokes will be featuring centers on the 2012 WSOP and Venetian Deepstack event. 10 prize packages for WSOP Event 46, Event 54, and a Venetian Deepstack tournament will be given out through the VIP Vegas SuperStack event.
To enter this tourney and become eligible for future events like those covered in this blog post, you need to earn 10,000+ Poker Points in Ladbrokes VIP Club.
