Ladbrokes Poker offers new players the opportunity to take part in an exclusive “Newbie Delight” tournament series that pays out a minimum of €250 each week.
The “problem” with poker sites such as Ladbrokes Poker is that they offer so many promotions to new and existing players that sometimes one or two get forgotten. Some of the promotions are absolute crackers; but often they do not attract the same level of attention as first deposit bonuses, VIP loyalty schemes and seasonal mission-based promotions.
Take “Newbie Delight” for example – a promotion that is exclusively available to new players at Ladbrokes Poker. Newbie Delight is a three-tier Steps program that culminates each Sunday with a €250 guaranteed tournament. Only players that have registered an account within the previous 90 days are eligible to enter, giving new players an excellent opportunity to boost their bankrolls.
How the Newbie Delight Promotion Works
The Newbie Delight promotion is very simple to explain. Each evening at 8:00pm (all time GMT), Ladbrokes Poker hosts a “Newbie Tourney 1” tournament. The tournament has a buy-in of €1.00 and the top twenty players each receive a ticket to “Newbie Tourney 2” – a tournament that takes place each Tuesday and Thursday at 8:00pm.
“Newbie Tourney 2” can be bought into directly for €3.25 if you have not won a ticket in the first Step, or just want to skip the first Step. This tournament guarantees a minimum of ten tickets into the “Newbie Final” on Sundays at 6:00pm – which can also be bought into directly for €6.00 provided you have been playing at Ladbrokes Poker for ninety days or fewer.
As an extra incentive to take part in the promotion, Ladbrokes Poker is offering players who register for an account a free ticket for “Newbie Tourney 1”. It might only be worth €1.00, but no deposit is required to take advantage of this offer, and it could result in a reasonable cash to start your Ladbrokes Poker experience – particularly as you will only be playing against players of your own skill level.
If You Choose to Make a Deposit … …
There are multiple benefits of making a deposit at Ladbrokes Poker. The site is one of just a few skins left on the iPoker Network that still offers a 200% bonus on your first deposit up to €1,500 (many have limited their first deposit bonuses to €100 or €200). You will also be invited to play in five freeroll tournaments with combined guaranteed prize pools of €9,250.
Furthermore, once you start playing real money poker, you will start earning Status Points towards your VIP Rank in Ladbrokes Rewards Club. The Status Points can be automatically converted to cash each week if you opt into the “Weekly Booster” promotion, or saved up for more valuable rewards in Ladbrokes´ VIP Store.
The weekly cashback is equivalent to around 20% rakeback depending on the currency you choose to fund your account with. According to the calculations in my Ladbrokes Poker review, the equivalent rakeback rate for the first deposit bonus is 29%. So, if you add the two together, you will receive nearly 50% back on the rake you pay during the first ninety days of playing at Ladbrokes Poker – plus, of course, weekly opportunities to win a share of €250.00 in Ladbrokes Poker´s “Newbie Delight”.
Just remember to use the promotional code “POKERWEB” when creating your Ladbrokes Poker account, and you could be enjoying a potentially very lucrative next ninety days!
