No points needed, no minimum rake. Just a true freeroll for $12K, including the $8,200 buy-in, for the first-ever PPM on the Mediterranean. Stops in Italy, Greece, Turkey, Croatia
Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles (PRWEB) October 9, 2007
It was a pretty modest start: Just 139 hardcore poker players piling on a cruise ship in 2002 and sailing for Mexico.
Since, the famed PartyPoker.com Million (http://www.partypoker.com/marketing/pokerlistings4.htm?wm=256519) has grown to see some of the biggest prize pools in WPT history and become the highlight of the poker year for hundreds of online qualifiers.
Next year, for the first time ever, the epic poker cruise hits the Mediterranean and a player from PokerListings.com (http://www.pokerlistings.com/party-poker), the world's best online poker resource, will be stuffing themselves at the poker buffet, thanks to an exclusive upcoming freeroll.
Set for Dec. 15, 2007, the freeroll is open to all PokerListings players (signed up at PartyPoker.com through a PokerListings link) who simply deposit and play before Nov. 30.
"This is another great example," says Camilla Sundell, press secretary for PokerListings.com, "of the pure added value we can get our players just for signing up through us.
"No points needed, no minimum rake. Just a true freeroll for $12K, including the $8,200 buy-in, for the first-ever PPM on the Mediterranean. Stops in Italy, Greece, Turkey, Croatia," Sundell adds, "plus eight days of wall-to-wall poker? Pretty much paradise."
Also on tap for PL players: Quarterly $ 5,000 cash freerolls for all new players who sign up at Party Poker from a PokerListings link. No qualifying is required - just deposit and play.
The next one is scheduled for Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. (GMT), for all players signed up from Aug. 1-Oct. 31, 2007.
And, as always, all new players can also choose between an exclusive $200 bonus at 120% match (bonus code PLIST120) or a $50 flat bonus (bonus code PLFREE50) when they sign up (Note: Some release conditions apply).
"Party Poker," adds Sundell, "is one of the kings of online poker. Massive traffic, a great tournament line-up… plus we love getting our players into iconic events in the poker world, and the PartyPoker.com Million definitely fits the bill.
"With the recent performances of some of our qualifiers too, don't be surprised if our freeroll winner makes it deep as well --maybe even joining the elite company of Gracz, Lederer and Lindgren et al. as one of the winners.
"We wish all of our players the best of luck, and the best of cards."
