Jackpotland is 888Poker´s exciting new promotion in which players have the opportunity to win a $100,000 jackpot cash prize every day until the end of April.
Although 888Poker´s latest promotion – “Jackpotland” – takes a fair bit of understanding, it is well worth exploring due to the many different opportunities to win a cash prize, free poker bonuses or entries into a weekly freeroll tournament with a $5,000 prize pool.
The concept behind “Jackpotland” is not unlike many of 888Poker´s previous promotions – complete a challenge, win a ticket to a free-to-enter tournament and (hopefully) win a prize. However, there are a few extra twists that players can take advantage of to maximize the value of this promotion.
How the Jackpotland Promotion Works
In order to participate in the Jackpotland promotion, players need to complete daily challenges to earn a ticket to a special Jackpotland tournament (three free tournament tickets are given to each player at the start of the promotion. Check your email if you have not received yours). The daily challenges are:
- Play in five or more Blast tournaments with a buy-in of $1.00 or more.
- Play in MTTs or Sit & Go games with combined buy-ins of $4.00 or more.
- Win fifteen or more cash games hands at minimum stakes of $0.02/$0.05.
Players can complete a maximum of three challenges each day and use their tournament tickets to enter any of the four following daily Jackpotland tournaments until 23rd April:
- At 00:08am and 6.08pm each day (all times GMT) the Jackpotland Skills Tournaments offer players the chance to test their skills in freezeout events, each with a $3,000 prize pool.
- At 11:04am and 4:08pm each day, the Jackpotland Lucky Tournaments are All-In Shootouts in which players are all-in every hand until a winner is found. These tournaments also have a $3,000 prize pool.
In addition to the cash prizes up for grabs in the Jackpotland tournaments, players finishing in the top 500 places in any of the daily tournaments get to spin the Jackpot Wheel. The Jackpot Wheel has five different prizes:
- Entry into a weekly freeroll “Jumbo” tournament with a $5,000 prize pool.
- $1.00 no deposit bonus.
- $10.00 no deposit bonus.
- $1,000 cash prize.
- $100,000 cash prize.
The weekly freeroll “Jumbo” tournament takes place each Sunday until 30th April at 9:04pm. Players winning a ticket to this event via the Jackpot Wheel or via one of the alternative methods mentioned below will have the entry ticket credited their account within 72 hours and have to register manually for the tournament.
Players who win a $1.00 or $10.00 no deposit bonus have to earn 3.5 Poker Points per $1.00 before the bonus is credited to their account. Players who win the $1,000 or $100,000 will receive their prize as cash in their accounts subject to 888Poker´s verification and security checks.
How to Win Extra Prizes in the Big Top Slot Game
During the Jackpotland promotion, players logging into their 888Poker accounts will be welcomed with a pop-up inviting them to spin the reels on the Big Top Slot. The Big Top Slot can award one of five different prizes – tickets for Jackpotland tournaments, tickets for regular 888Poker tournaments, a free sports bet or a casino freeplay.
Players can spin the reels on the Big Top Slot up to twice a day. The first spin can be in the poker client, on the Instant Play browser version of the software, or on the 888Poker mobile app. The second spin can only be on the 888Poker mobile app and only between the hours of 5:00pm and midnight each day. Terms and conditions apply to the free sports bets and casino freeplay prizes, so make sure you read them if you spin one of these prizes.
A Few More (Quite Important) Terms and Conditions
In order to take part in the daily challenges, you must have played in at least one Jackpotland tournament already. If you did not receive an email with your three free tickets, speak with 888Poker support to get the email resent to you. It is also a condition of the promotion that players must have made at least one real money deposit and staked at least $1.00 in the past twelve months.
