Attention Golfers: 888poker offering Morocco Tour Packages
By RTR Dennis
We’re used to seeing online poker rooms offer prize packages that include a seat in some big land-based tournament. However, few poker sites also include an entry into a major golf tournament too. But that’s exactly what is being offered at 888poker through $2,000 Moroccan Magic prize packages. As you can see below, these packages are loaded with benefits:
- 3 nights at the luxurious Mazagan Beach Resort
- $500 for travel expenses
- Breakfast and dinner every day
- Welcome cocktail reception on October 8th, 2012
- A €250 seat for a poker tournament held on October 8th and 9th
- Free entry to 888poker Tour Championship PGA Pro-Am Golf Championship
- 888poker merchandise
- Gala Dinner on October 11th
- Airport transfers to and from Casablanca
With both an entry into a major PGA Pro-Am Golf Championship event and a free poker tournament seat, this is definitely an interesting prize package offer indeed. Do note that if golf isn’t your game and you want to avoid embarrassment, you don’t have to play in the PGA Pro-Am event.
Whatever the case may be, there are a variety of satellites and qualifiers available for the Morocco packages. Satellites run every two hours and buy-in fees are as low as $0.30; here’s a look at the full schedule for satellites and qualifiers:
$0.30 Morocco Tour Championship Step 1 – Runs every two hours, rebuys and add-ons allowed.
$11 + $1 Morocco Tour Championship Step 2 – Runs daily at 17:35 and 20:35 GMT.
11 + $1 Morocco Tour Championship Qualifier – Runs every Wednesday at 20:05 GMT, two $2,000 Moroccan Magic prize packages are guaranteed in each satellite.
$20,000 Race 4 the Ace Freeroll
Another promotion currently happening at 888poker is Race 4 the Ace, which runs from now until August 13th, 2012. To participate in this promo, 888poker members need to register for one of the races through their email address. Once registered, 888 will dispatch an email with the specific requirements for completing the race. Requirements range from playing a certain amount of poker tournaments within a designated timeframe to simply making a deposit.
Whenever a player completes the designated task, they’ll be sent a freeroll invite; normal freeroll prize pools include $500, $1,500 and $3,000. The biggest freeroll, which is the $20,000 Race 4 the Ace Final, takes place on August 18th, 2012.
