Spend $1, qualify for a $1 Million Tourney at Bwin
By RTR Dennis
The ultimate fantasy of low stakes poker players everywhere is to spin their tiny bankroll into a massive fortune. And bWin Poker are giving players a perfect opportunity to do just this through the “The Million” tournament.
Like the name implies, The Million offers a giant $1 million prize pool. And what’s perfect about this Texas Hold’em tourney is that virtually anybody has a chance to enter because satellites start at just $1 or 10 Poker Points. All one needs to do to find these satellites is visit the bwin software and select the “Tournaments” > “The Million” tabs.
From here you can either look for satellites or just pay the $600 + $40 direct buy-in. Keep in mind that The Million runs several times throughout the year, and you can see the schedule below:
- February 3rd, 2013 at 19:30 GMT
- May 5th, 2013 at 19:30 GMT
- August 8th, 2013 at 19:30 GMT
- November 3rd, 2013 at 19:30 GMT
If you’re searching for huge tournament action in between months where The Million runs, look no further than the $300,000 Guaranteed Sunday event at bwin. You can count on the $300k running every Sunday at 19:30 GMT (except when The Million runs), and the direct buy-in is $215.
Of course, there are also cheaper options for getting into this tourney including satellites where the buy-in is just 50 Poker Points. To find $300k satellites and qualifiers, simply visit bwin’s software and look under “Scheduled Tournaments” > “$300,000 Guaranteed Sunday” tabs.
WPT Vienna Prize Packages
One more excellent promo worth discussing at bwin involves the WPT Vienna prize packages that are currently being given away. Each $6,500 package covers the $4,600 WPT Vienna Main Event buy-in, $750 for travel/spending money, and 6 nights of hotel accommodations. Considering that you’ll get to visit a cool city and play for a prize pool worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, this is a nice deal!
A $325 + $25 WPT Vienna Final satellite runs every Sunday, and you can win seats to this qualifier via smaller satellites throughout the week. Just visit the “Tournaments” > “WPT satellites and qualifiers” tabs to get started. Also, if you’re not already getting a bWin Poker rakeback deal, make sure to sign up through RakeTheRake so you get the maximum 100% up to $500 sign-up bonus.
