If you’ve checked out the Sports Betting World Cup thread you’d be able to guess that more than a handful of PokerNetworkers are not getting a whole lot of shut-eye right now. That’s because the World Cup is in full swing in South Africa.
888poker have caught the World Cup fever as a well, announcing a whole bunch of World Cup themed promotions to get you right into the action.
First up, if you don’t already have an account at 888, now is the time to get one. Deposit up to $100 and 888 will instantly match the deposit with the same amount. There’s also $4,500 in new depositor freerolls and the chance to take the down the $50,000 new depositors challenge. This one will be sure to have you better prepared for action than Pim Verbeek had the Socceroos ready for Germany.
Once you hit the felt simply earn an 888 Poker Status Point (FPP) to earn yourself a no-loss bet on a FIFA World Cup match. You will be able to put up to $5 on any World Cup game and if the bet wins, you collect the cash, if it loses 888 will refund it straight back into your account. It would have been nice to be freerolling Switzerland for a handy $55 collect.
There’s also the $10,000 World Cup Steps Tournament. For just 1 cent you can take your shot at winning $10,000 through their World Cup themed steps tournament, and better still along the way you earn free bets at 888 Sport. You’ve got to be a better chance of getting out of the group stage than France right?
There’s also the chance to gain vengeance on the felt against the country that beat you on the field. Throughout the group stage 888 will be holding various freeroll tournaments open to players from the countries that played the day before. I’m sure the smack talk was rife the day after the New Zealand-Serbian clash, the way the Kiwis cheekily stole that draw.
Finally what type of fan would you be if you couldn’t show off your true colours. It’s what makes the World Cup great! Place a bet of $350 or more at 888 Sport during the World Cup and they will throw in a complimentary jersey of your choice. Bring your own vuvuzela though!
So it couldn’t be any easier to get in on the World Cup action, and bag yourself some bonus loot at the same time. Download 888poker today!
