The poker community has long praised the Aussie Millions for being a first-class event
Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles (PRWEB) October 16, 2007
The world's best online poker resource, PokerListings.com (http://www.pokerlistings.com/pacific-poker), and Pacific Poker (http://www.pacificpoker.com/pokerlisting2_en/?sr=931565) are set to send yet another of their valued players, expenses-paid, to the richest tournament in the Southern Hemisphere.
At stake in another upcoming, high-value freeroll: $15,000 in cash and prizes with a lucrative package, including buy-in plus expenses, to the highly anticipated 2008 Aussie Millions.
Open to all PokerListings players, new and existing (signed up at Pacific Poker through a PokerListings link), the freeroll is set to go November 18, 2007, with just 25 comp points between Oct. 8 and Nov. 8, 2007 needed to qualify.
The winner receives a massive $11,000 USD prize package for the 2008 Aussie Millions main event, set for Jan. 14-20, at the legendary Crown Casino in Melbourne. An extra $4,000 in cash will also be spread from position two down.
"The Aussie Millions," says Camilla Sundell, press secretary for PokerListings.com, "is easily one of the most anticipated events of the year - and for good reason. I mean, the poker's incredible, with the Australian Heads-up Championship, the crazy $100,000 Hold'em event and the $1 million guarantee main event, just for starters."
"And if you bust out or are looking for a break, you're in Melbourne, one of Australia's coolest cities, in the middle of summer. If you haven't been to Australia before, trust me - that's worth it right there."
Also now on the table at Pacific Poker for PokerListings players: Exclusive $5,000 monthly cash freerolls and, as always, the biggest sign-up bonus in the industry - up to $150 at 50% match.
The monthly freerolls are also open to all PokerListings players, with players who collect 20 comp points in any given month automatically qualifying for the following month's freeroll. The next two are set to go Oct. 20 and Nov. 17, 2007.
There's no limit on how many you can play - just keep collecting 20 points each month.
"The poker community has long praised the Aussie Millions for being a first-class event," Sundell adds, "and Melbourne is absolutely one of the most enjoyable places in the world to be in the middle of January, so we couldn't be happier at least three of our valued players will get to experience it firsthand."
"And there's no shortage of benefits at a premium poker site like Pacific either, with some of the loosest Hold'em action on the Web and phenomenal new software really enhancing the experience.
"Again, we couldn't be happier, and hope as many players as possible can take advantage."
