Are you ready for a huge month of May on 888poker?
The “Make it Big” series comes to Barcelona for the first time and with 13 tournaments over 12 days will be the largest Live festival 888 has hosted yet.
The fun starts even earlier online with the first 888poker XL Inferno online series event on May 7 followed by 197 more over two weeks.
And just before the start of the XL Inferno series you can boost your bankroll with the massive $100,000 Meteor freeroll.
$100,000 in a Single Free Tournament
It’s true. 888poker is giving away $100,000 in one single tournament. And it doesn’t even cost you to play in it.
If you already have an account at 888poker you’ve probably already found your two free Meteorite tickets. These tickets grant you entry into the feeder tournaments of The Meteor freeroll.
The satellites tun 12 times a day every day until May 2. There are no strings attached and all you need to do is make the top 250 to get entry to The Meteor.
If you miss both your chances, you can get more tickets easily. Either deposit $10 minimum to your account and use the promo code 100METEOR for one ticket or complete challenges which will give you up to eight more tickets every day!
The Meteor freeroll itself will run May 3 at 10 PM CET (9 PM GMT; 4 PM ET).
The tournament is capped at 20,000 players and, judging by the number of satellites, it’ll be pretty full so make sure you register in time. Registration starts four hours prior to the first hand.
The tournament will have a 3k starting stack and 3 min levels so it’ll be fast and furious. The first prize will be between $5,000 and $10,000 depending on the number of participants.
Prize Pool: $100,000
Start date: May 3, 10 PM CET
Tournament ID: 101 934 503
Starting stack: 3000
Level time: 3 min
