bet365 boosts prize pool to $1 million

30 January 2009

(PRESS RELEASE) -- February was already looking like the hottest month of the year with the iPoker Raked Hand Cash Race. But online poker room bet365 have now ensured the action will be scorching by boosting the $400,000 prize pool to an amazing $1,000,000 in their Million Dollar Mission.

The top 300 players on the raked hand leaderboard for the month of February are guaranteed a share of the original prize pool, but the winning players who clock up their raked hands at bet365's tables will pocket 250% MORE than if they played at any other iPoker poker room! If a bet365 player tops the leaderboard, Poker at bet365 will increase their winnings from $20,000 to a huge $50,000.

Players can find racking up those hands for the Million Dollar Mission even more rewarding with the Millionth Hand Jackpots. For every one millionth hand dealt from the start of February, participating players at the table will share a jackpot of up to $6,000, just for being part of the hand.

Even better, the winner of every Millionth Hand will be in with a chance of a further prize in the Jackpot Hand Super Showdown. The player with the highest winning hand of all the jackpot winners will pocket a High Hand bonus of $30,000. But don't worry if your hand isn't high up the hand ranking list, as there's also a $20,000 Low Hand Bonus for the winner of the lowest ranked jackpot hand too!

Kate Laverick, Poker Marketing Manager at bet365, commented, "The February Raked Hand Cash Race promises to deliver the most exciting competition and rewarding prizes for online poker this month. And with the additional $600,000 waiting to be won only at bet365, poker fans would be crazy to play at any other iPoker site in case they miss out on the extra cash."

New players can also give their bankroll a boost with a 200% bonus added to their first deposit, up to a whopping $600 free, when they hit the poker tables at bet365.
