If you’re planning on playing online poker this weekend and are on the lookout for the best promos and action, I’ve got one word for you …. Powerfest!
PartyPoker has scheduled a massive festival of 98 events that begins on Sunday, February 21 and will run for the next four weeks. A whopping $5 million is guaranteed to be paid to winners during Powerfest, with buy-ins and prize pools escalating each week.
February 21-28 is for Featherweights, with buy-ins ranging from only $5.50 to $11; the next week (Feb. 28-March 6) is reserved for Middleweights, with entry fees of $22-$55; Heavyweights climb into the ring in week 3 (March 6-13) at buy-ins of $109-$215; and the final week of Powerfest action will see High Rollers plunk down from $530-$5200 from March13-20.
Week 1 of Powerfest offers prize pools ranging from $5,000 to $25,000. Play in just 4 events during the week to win a free ticket to Powerfest week 2 action. Satellites to Powerfest events are running now at Partypoker.
Here’s one more piece of good news from PartyPoker. The site recently put an end to charging fees for cashout requests. Any withdrawal, whether by bank transfer, eWallet or credit card, carries no fees. The savings to players means more money for tournament buy-ins at festivals such as Powerfest!
100 Million Celebration
We are in the second half of the month of February and that means that PokerStars‘ celebration to commemorate 100 million registered players has moved on to the second phase – the PokerStars Milestone Challenges. From February 15-29, players will be completing daily challenges tied to memorable events in PokerStars history.
A new silver and gold challenge will appear in your Challenges window each day. Complete the challenges within 24 hours from clicking ‘Start’ in order to win a prize ranging from a ticket to a $10,000 All-in Shootout to $100,000 in cash. It took PokerStars almost 15 years to register 100 million players, but your reward for completing the challenges will appear in your account instantaneously!
