888poker: Changes to 888 Poker’s $8 FREE Offer
888Poker has instituted a series of changes to its $8 FREE offer, which has been a fish magnet for the site for quite a while now. The deal changes, but on the whole the offer remains an attractive one. The list of eligible countries hasn’t changed, so those who benefited from the promotion will continue to enjoy its advantages.
For UK residents, the stakes have even been upped: Instead of the £5 deal they used to get, they will now get a £12 one (the equivalent of $20). Of this money, $2 will be transferred to their real money accounts while $18 will be credited to players in the shape of tournament tickets: One $7 tournament, 3 $3 tournaments and 2 $1 events.
For international players, the $8 FREE deal remains unchanged in substance, but not in composition. International players will still get $8, of which $2 will be credited to their real money accounts and $6 will be given to them in the shape of tournament tickets. They will basically be able to buy into six - $1 events with the money.
Last, but not least, UK-based mobile players will have £5 transferred to their real money accounts and they will pick up £7 worth of tournament tickets. The £5 can be used on all versions of the 888 Poker client, while the tournament tickets can only be used through the full PC or Mac based version of the software. The reason for this is a simple one: The 888Poker mobile platform does not currently support tournament play.
