888poker adds MTT’s to their Mobile App
By RTR Dennis
In recent years, the poker world has entered an exciting mobile era, where players can enjoy games no matter where they are. But while it’s great that mobile apps enable people to play poker through their smartphones and tablets, there’s just one problem: most sites only offer low stakes cash games.
This being said, 888poker have differentiated themselves from the pack by adding multi-table tournaments to their app. Previously, 888 mobile players were relegated to cash games and sit and go’s. However, they now have the ability to play MTT’s through an Android, iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
Those who take advantage of the 888poker mobile update will receive a ticket to a £30,000 ($50,000) freeroll, which is being held to celebrate mobile MTT’s. Don’t forget that you can earn more tournament tickets beyond the freeroll by playing at 888 through your mobile device.
One tourney that you’ll really want to look for is ‘The Whale.’ This monthly event is appropriately titled because it offers a $250,000 prize pool and costs $530 to enter. If you can’t cough up a $530 buy-in, don’t worry because there are satellites starting at just $0.10. The winner of The Whale is guaranteed a massive $60,000 prize!
Another interesting 888 tournament opportunity is the $10,000 Monday Twins Challenge. This challenge features two $10k tourneys that run simultaneously every Monday at 19:35 GMT. If you can win both events on the same night, you’ll collect an extra $10k. Assuming you final table both events, you’ll still earn a nice $1,000 payout. So this is definitely one challenge worth undertaking.
It’s also worth mentioning that you will have the chance to enjoy a wide range of freeroll tournaments every month at 888poker. In fact, 888 run an on-and-off-again promotion that features $10k freerolls every day.
So whether you’re playing through a mobile device or just a PC, 888poker is definitely a great place to enjoy tournament action!
