Sky Poker: Last Freeroll Friday Ahead of Season Climax
LONDON, May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Ahead of this weekend's final round of Premier League matches, online poker giants, Sky Poker, are today confirming that this Friday (May 11th) will be the last Freeroll on Friday of the season.
Throughout the entire 2011/12 Premier League campaign, Sky Poker have given registered poker players the chance to win free poker bet tokens playing Freeroll on Friday, the poker event which fuses the thrills of online gaming with the action on the halloed turf.
This Friday, before the last round of Premier League games are set to kick-off, a maximum of one thousand runners will play poker online: battling it out in the hope of finishing in the top twenty prized positions.
Those lucky twenty will then be allocated a Premiership League football team, according to the current Premier League table and the player's overall finishing position after Friday's freeroll. So if a player were to finish in first position, they would be cheering on Manchester City- currently top of the Premier League table- during their clash against lowly QPR on Sunday.
Â "With entry costing 100 Poker Points, it's no wonder Freeroll on Friday has proved to be so overwhelmingly popular throughout the season." Said a spokesperson for Sky Poker
"Hundreds of Sky Poker customers have vied to finish in those top 20 places each week.The prizes aren't bad either. If a player's allocated Premier League team can pull off a winning performance, we'll give them a Â£10 free poker bet. For every goal their team scores, they'll win a Â£5 free bet- even if their team goes on to draw or lose."
"We'll even double the prizes if a player's allocated team is featured as part of Sky Sports' live Premiership coverage on Sunday."
