Online poker players in Nevada and New Jersey can take solace in the fact that WSOP.com is throwing some support their way for the month of December, allowing players who lose at the virtual tables to have a shot at grabbing some bonus cash and getting back in the game.
A new promotion that kicks off on December 6 lets players know that WSOP.com has “Got Your Back” with regard to those losing sessions that befall even the best poker players. Simply opt in during one or both of two qualifying periods and you can win a free entry to a drawing where 100 prizes of up to $25 will be distributed to players who fail to turn a net profit during each two-week period.
Players who are winners in each of the qualifying periods needn’t feel left out. Showing a net profit will result in the chance to win free $1 tournament tickets. So win or lose, WSOP.com has Got Your Back!
The qualifying periods are from Dec. 6-19 and Dec. 20 through Jan. 2, 2016. You must opt in to each to be eligible for both. And your action on the felt is not retroactive. In other words, if you begin losing and then decide to opt in, your earlier losses are not counted when tabulating your net profit or loss for the two-week period. It’s best to opt in on the first day of each qualifying period!
To be eligible, your online play must consist of a minimum of 50 ring game hands at stakes of $0.01/$0.02 to $0.10/$0.20. Action at higher stake levels won’t be included in deciphering your net results.
Eligibility also requires deposits totaling at least $50 during the qualifying period. The qualifying periods run separately, meaning that the 50 cash game hands and $50 deposit is required in both if you choose to opt in and participate in both. And why wouldn’t you, as isn’t it comforting when someone has Got your Back?
So let’s say you have a balance of $50 on December 6 and you opt in to the promo and deposit $50 in order to meet the eligibility requirement, bringing your balance to $100. You toil away at the $0.01/$0.02 to $0.10/$0.20 stake levels for at least 50 hands over two weeks, but unfortunately those bad beats got the best of you and your balance sits at $78.13 on Dec. 21.
Not to worry! Your net loss during the qualifying period means that you will be entered into a drawing where the winners receive anywhere from $2-$25! Your favorite poker site has Got Your Back!
Now let’s assume the same scenario except that your awesome skills and poker prowess allowed your balance to increase from $100 to $198.47. Way to go! While you’re contemplating moving up in stake levels because you’re crushing the action at the micros, you will be entered into a drawing to win free $1 tournament tickets!
Remember to opt in and meet the requirements for each qualifying period in order to be eligible. Are you located in NV or NJ and have not yet deposited and played at WSOP.com? A 100% up to $400 deposit bonus awaits you! for details.
