Unibet to Launch Around the World Dream Raffle with New Poker Software

With Unibet set to go live with its long-awaited new poker client on Thursday, the online poker room is also gearing up for spiffy new giveaway to promote the upgraded software. Dubbed the “Around the World Dream Raffle,” Unibet will be giving two dozen phenomenal trips away, including one that will treat someone to a month-long vacation visiting some of the greatest locations on Earth.

Troy Quenneville Goes One Further, Wins partypoker $2 Million Guaranteed Event in Punta Cana

Rare is it when the World Poker Tour holds a tournament and there is another event on that calendar that actually bests it not only as far as entries but also tops it with the prize pool. That happened at the end of the week as partypoker, the sponsor for the WPT Caribbean event held in Punta Cana last week (and won by Niall Farrell over Troy Quenneville) concluded that schedule with their partypoker Millions $ 2 Million Guaranteed event. Over two Day Ones that were conducted while the WPT event was in its Day Two and Three action, the partypoker Millions drew in 526 entries, more than what came out for play in the WPT Caribbean itself. Although such players as Farrell, Tony Dunst and Martin Jacobsen came out for the tournament, only Jacobsen was around by the last day of the event. Leading the way was Quenneville, who

888poker’s Gift Showers Promo Underway

888poker is in the midst of a holiday-themed promotion with one of my favorite names ever, even if it is a little wordy: Gift Showers $ 800,000 Season of Giving Promotion. I’m just imagining my childhood self, cackling with glee as presents rain down on me, each one a mystery, possibly containing that thing that would make my wildest dreams come true. Now, 888’s promo isn’t exactly like this, but for those who play poker on the site, it’s a cheap and easy way to try to win prizes until the day after Christmas. 888 is hosting three different types of tournaments during the Gift Showers promotion: All-In Gift Tournament – every day at 20:20 GMT through December 26th $ 2,000 Lucky Star Tournament – every day at 01:05, 11:05, and 18:05 GMT through December 26th $ 6,500 Starburst Tournament – every Sunday at 20:35 GMT through December 25th The

Inaugural Global Poker League Season to Conclude This Week

The Global Poker League will wrap up their inaugural season beginning on Tuesday. By the end of the week – Thursday, to be precise – the first champion of the fledgling poker league will be crowned, with that champion taking down a $ 100,000 grand prize as their reward. After playing through a grueling 14-week regular season that was split up pre- and post-World Series of Poker and battling through the “Summer Series” that saw the teams meet physically, the GPL determined the eight teams of the 12-team league that would compete for the GPL World Championship last month. These eight teams will play on Tuesday and Wednesday, with the two conferences deciding their champions on those days. First up will be the GPL Americas on Tuesday, with the lineup going off as such: #1 Montreal Nationals (130K in chips) vs. #4 San Francisco Rush (100K), 3PM Eastern Time #3
