Betsafe Unleash €250k of Microgaming Promotions

€100k Freeroll Festival
€50k Santa’s iPad Giveaway

December looks like being a great month for players over at Betsafe Poker Black on the Microgaming network as they have unveiled a series of promotions to run throughout the final weeks of 2012. Among a lot of more incentives, it's enough to play just ONE hand of poker at Betsafe before Sunday and you will be invited to a €10,000 freeroll.

There are three big promotions looking to reward loyal players with cash and prizes worth over €250k just in December. Remember that these prizes are on top of the 30% Betsafe rakeback and $5,000 worth of HSDB races run each month.

100k Freeroll Festival
Loyalty may be a key to most promotions but all you need to benefit from the €100k Freeroll Festival is to have played just 1 raked hand during the previous seven days! Freerolls take place. There will be six freerolls tournaments every single day comprising of five €50 freeroll tournaments, one €200 freeroll tournament and a €1,000 freeroll tournament. There will also be a €500 rebuy freeroll running every Monday-Saturday. However, the ones to look out for are the weekly €10,000 freerolls which take place every Sunday at 19:00 CET. With December this year having five Sundays there's all the more chance to make a killing for nothing. The first one takes place this coming Sunday 2nd December.

New sign ups will also be eligible for the weekly 500 New Player Freeroll hosted on Wednesdays at 19:30 CET

100k Christmas Hunt
Each week in December Poker Black will be running a €25k "raked hand chase" which will offer the chance to win tournament tickets, Wowee speakers, HD Headphones and even the new iPhone 5.

Unlike a traditional rake race, which rewards the amount of player points or $ you rake in a week this promotion rewards you for the number of raked hands, regardless of the rake contributed. There are five tiers to reach per weekly race. For example, once you have completed 100 raked hands you get entered into the Tier 1 "carnage tournament" (a "carnage" tournament is essentially a giant "flip" as everyone is all-in first hand) with the first 1,000 places being rewarded with a $5.50 tournament ticket. You then progress towards level 2 which requires 250 raked hands. The further you reach, the more "carnage" tournaments you get entered for and the better the prizes get. See a full list of requirements and potential prizes below;

€50k Santa’s iPad Giveaway – 100 iPads up for grabs
This promotion rewards regular sit and go players. Once again it doesn't favour high stakes players over low stakes players (the only stipulation is that the buy in is at least €1.10). The promotion simply counts the number of sit and go tournaments you play in a day and for every 10 you enter you will receive one iPad "scratchcard" giving you the chance to win either a 16GB iPad wifi or iPad mini wifi. 

There are 100 iPads to be won but this isn't your only opportunity to win with this promotion. A losing scratchcard gains you automatic entry into Santa's Tournament, played at 19:00 CET on New Year's Day with a prize pool consisting of; Multimedia Super Pack with Sony 14” Vaio, iPad 32GB Wifi, iPhone 5 16GB, Canon EOS 1100D Digital SLR Camera and Jambox Speakers, valued to €3500.

For each losing scratchcard you will earn 100 chips up to a maximum of 10,000 starting chips.
