Have you made your New Years resolutions yet?

The health clubs will be packed come January 2 and grocery stores typically start the New Year by selling a lot of healthy food to those who resolve to exercise and eat better. By the second week in January, the gyms start to see a decrease in the number of patrons and pizza parlors are busy taking orders once again.

Why don’t we all just skip making resolutions that will never be kept and try something a bit more doable? I resolve to play more online poker in 2016! I can keep that resolution.

For those interested in doing the same, check out the promos going on at some online poker sites over the first weekend of 2016. Let’s start  the New Year out right by playing more poker!

Iron Poker

This is the last week of the €100K Merry Missions promo and it runs through January 3. Just make a deposit and/or play in 10 Merry Missions €500 Freerolls to receive an entry to a special Merry Missions €10K Freeroll that will take place at 18:30 GMT on January 3.

Iron Poker is a skin on the iPoker Network and currently offers a deposit bonus of 200% up to €1,500 for new players. That’s a nice bonus to begin 2016. Better grab it while the iron is hot!

William Hill Poker

Also on the iPoker Network is William Hill Poker, with the same €100K Merry Missions promotion available at this trusted poker site. Entrenched in the gaming industry since 1934, William Hill is the UK’s largest operator for live and online gambling.

A welcome bonus of 200% up to €1,500 awaits new depositors here as well! I’ve got an idea for a New Years resolution. See how many bonuses you can clear at various poker sites throughout 2016! Start with Iron Poker, move on to William Hill, and then continue to 888Poker, PokerStars, etc. Make 2016 the year for poker bonuses!


A shower of gifts have been raining down on 888Poker players since mid-November and will continue to do so through January 4. If you haven’t grabbed a share of $12,000 worth of gifts being handed out to players every day, there is still time!

Whether you fancy a Star Spin Game, Lucky Star and Starburst tournaments, or All-In Gift Shower tournaments, they are all available at 888Poker through the 4th of January.


The world’s top poker site hands out $60,000 every month in PokerStars Giveaway tournaments. There are four tournaments held every day (09:47, 12:47, 14:47 and 16:47 ET) that are free to enter for players with a ticket.

How do you get a ticket, you ask? You can grab two free tickets every month and even more tickets by either completing Daily Challenges or making a weekly deposit. A Star Code is required for the freebies. Here is the code for this month and next: ‘DEC2015’ and ‘JAN2016’

Bwin Poker

Are you a cash game player? Love to take on missions and achieve them? Then Bwin Poker is the site for you! A Cash Game Missions promo is currently underway and allows two opportunities to win $25.

Mission Pocket Pair requires you to win with pocket Aces and each pocket pair all the way down to pocket Dueces. In Mission Final Hand, win a showdown with any pair and then continue on up the ladder of the rank of hands until you win with a straight flush. Are you up for the challenge?
