The infamous Gold Rush may have ended in 1855, but the online poker Cash Rush is ongoing!

Players looking for the best promotions at online poker sites this weekend would be wise to check out the Cash Rush promo at Iron Poker. It’s a leaderboard race that pays out $4,000 in bonus cash to the top 200 players for the next four weeks. That’s $16,000 in bonus money!

Other poker rooms running generous promotional giveaways for the weekend of February 5-7 include Partypoker, PokerStars and 888poker. Keep reading to find out the details of each!

$16,000 Cash Rush

The Cash Rush promotion kicked off on February 3 at Iron Poker and is for players who frequent the Cash or Speed tables. The more you play, the better your chances of climbing your way to the top of the weekly leaderboard – the first of which runs from Feb. 3-9.

Iron Poker rewards players who log on daily with an Activity Boost that amounts to an extra 10% of points for each day that you play. For instance, play 3 days during the week and get a 30% boost, play the whole week and get 70%!

Players must opt in to the Cash Rush promo each week. First place on the weekly leaderboard is worth $300, while the next 199 placers will divvy up the remaining $3,700. That’s a Cash Rush and all you have to do to win is play poker!

VIP Steps Challenges

PokerStars is celebrating 100 million player signups the entire month of February, and running from Feb. 1-14 are the VIP Steps Challenges. More than $1 million in StarsCoin will be doled out to players during that time so it’s a great idea to make your way over to the world’s top poker site this weekend.


Simply complete VIP Steps and receive instant rewards upon conquering each VIP Steps Challenge. That’s instant gratification for those who don’t like to wait around to receive their bonuses. Are you up for the challenge? If the answer is yes, then take the next step!

Super Brawl $2016

Sunday, February 7 is Super Bowl Sunday, and while NFL fans around the world will be glued to their TV sets cheering for either the Denver Broncos or Carolina Panthers, PartyPoker has taken the opportunity to throw a Super Brawl $2016 party.

Players need only to wager at least $5 on the Super Bowl or make a deposit of $50 or more using the bonus code “SUPERBRAWL” between Feb. 1-7. Doing so will win you a seat to a special Super Brawl tournament set for Tuesday, February 9 at 20:00 CET. More than $2,000 in cash and prizes are up for grabs in the tournament!

Live the Game Free Tournaments

Are you living the game of poker in the activities that you do away from the felt?

If so, then you, my friend, are living the game of poker. And you are precisely the type of player that 888Poker wants at their tables! So much so that they are hosting a bunch of free tournaments through mid-March for depositors.
