Warm Up Stage
888 are currently running a "Warm Up" stage of their promotion from now until June 11th. During this period, anybody who makes at least one deposit will be eligible to participate in free 3-times daily $2,000 Warm Up Freerolls. They can also enter 3-times daily $500 Free Teams Tournaments. Here's more on these tourneys:
$2k Warm Up Freerolls - 3 times daily at 10:08, 15:08 and 20:08 GMT until June 11th. Registration is open to every real money player 4 hours before each tournament starts. Top 50% of the field in each freeroll receive a $10,000 Football Carnival ticket (maximum of three tickets).
$500 Teams Tournaments - Run three times daily at 08:08, 13:08 and 18:08 GMT until June 11th.
Sport Free Bet - If you make a $30 sports bet before June 11th ends, you'll be eligible for a free $10 sports wager.
Game Time Stage
Once your poker skills have been warmed up, it's Game Time! 888 are running 26 daily $10,000 Football Carnival Freerolls from June 12th to July 7th at 18:08 GMT. New players automatically receive one free $10k freeroll ticket just for downloading 888poker and signing up. You can continue picking up $10k freeroll seats by placing sports bets at 888.
The top 500 finishers in every $10k freeroll will win a ticket to one of two $15,000 Semi-Final Freerolls, which take place on July 8th and 10th at 18:08 GMT. The top 4,000 players from each Semi-Final will get to compete in the $20,000 Final Freeroll.
Aside from the freerolls, all players who make a deposit from now until July 13th will receive a 10% deposit bonus. While depositing, you'll select one of the 32 World Cup teams as your favorite to win the tournament. If your team wins a Semi-Final match, your bonus will be increased by another 30%. Assuming they win the Final, another 60% is added to your deposit bonus - making for a potential total of a 100% bonus.
With $400k in poker freerolls and cash bonuses available, we highly suggest that you join in 888's Football Carnival.
