Million Dollar Free Roll Monthly Final This Sunday

$400,000 Already Awarded, $600,000 Left to Win in’s Richest Tournament Ever

This Sunday night is another monthly final in’s Million Dollar Free Roll Tournament. $400,000K has already been awarded in the year-long series and there’s still $600,000 left to win -- $100,000 at tonight’s final table.

“We have a lot of relatively new players at our tables,” said Manager David Anderson. “They can find themselves at a monthly final face-to-face with really experienced players. They’re holding they’re own pretty well I’d say – a lot of the prize money is going to players that have hardly played in tournaments before.”

Free roll tournaments are particularly popular since there’s nothing to lose, just a piece of some nice prize money if you finish in the top ten.

Players can win their way to Sunday’s poker tournament by winning one of the qualifying free rolls scheduled throughout this week. Sunday’s champion will walk away $75,000 richer. Because of the way has structured payouts to spread the $100,000 prize pool around the final table, two runners-up will each get $10,000 and be among thirty cash prizewinners.

Awarding a total of $1,000,000 over ten months, this is the popular online poker room’s biggest tournament series ever. Million Dollar Free Roll Tournament

Contest details, including complete Rules:

Anyone (over 18) can enter the free contest at the “PlayersOnly Unleash the Player In You Video Contest” page on YouTube, Contest entries will be available for viewing there and viewers are invited to assist the judging by commenting.

The rules of the game are simple: video yourself and/or your friends acting like a true “player” or, for a laugh, the exact opposite. Pay tribute to successful, confident players you admire, or parody wannabe players that just don’t get it.

“Everybody’s got a little ‘player’ in them” said David Anderson, Brand Manager. “This is a chance to have some fun and win big cash.”

What’s it take to be a player? Confidence. Smarts. Style. Balls. You know the guy – he’s got the dream job, sweet wheels, cool clothes. Women can’t resist him (although his mom wishes he’d settle down), the guys think he’s cool – and he’s probably a winner at the poker table.

Players love poker because it’s a microcosm of real life. Be sharp, think fast, take some risks – success is sweet. Looking the part is important in life as it is in poker –bluffing being part of both games.

Big Week Coming Up in London for iGaming Biz

Thousands of people from around the world involved in the online gambling business will be in London for several major conferences happening the last week of January. Lots of business being done of course, but hey -- this IS the igaming industry -- there WILL be parties!

The ICEi igaming trade show, the CAP Euro casino affiliates conference and the Mobile Gambling Summit bring seemingly everyone involved in the online gambling business to London, the undisputed igaming capital of the world.

The biggest social event of the week will be the annual Lyceum Fire&ICE party. This year, to accommodate ever-increasing numbers, the igaming party of the year will be at The Hippodrome on Leicester Square. The theme is “cabaret” (as in "What good is sitting alone in your room!?" and "Money Makes the World Go Around"). Doors open at 9:00 p.m. and, thanks to sponsors, NextGen Gaming, ESL-Asia and Bluff Europe there'll be fantastic cabaret-themed entertainment and complimentary drinks. The event producer is making full use of the elevating stage in the middle of the massive venue. She's booked a world-class DJ, a bongo player and a vocalist. Cool!

The Hippodrome has long been a place of revelry, but following its recent re-launch, it now has seven bars, an exclusive VIP room and private tables across triple level tiers. Fortunately, since Fire&ICE has outgrown every previous venue, this historic central London venue accommodates 1800 partiers.

The party week actually begins opening night of ICE/ICEi with "Breaking the Ice". Forty-five quid but if someone drags me along I'll be happy to attend. ;) Rushmore Casino and Hollywood Casino are both throwing parties for affiliates during CAP Euro. Affiliates webmasters go pretty crazy when they get away from their computers and out into the world, so those'll be fun. So will other CAP Euro parties like the Sunday afternoon Pub Crawl. Alas, I'll be checking in at Heathrow about that time.

Check back for pics and videos from the conferences and social events!

Betting Terminal to Integrate Texas Holdem Poker Software into Game Terminals

Betting Terminal Inc., a company with game terminals located across the globe, will integrate BackgammonMasters poker game software into their terminals.

Initially, 100 betting terminals will be placed throughout Croatia in entertainment hotspots including coffee shops, restaurants and bars. The integrated $games will include multi-player Texas Holdem Poker at first and then other popular casino games which will be accessed live from the installed BackgammonMasters Game Lobby.

The CEO of Betting Terminal Inc. announced that Betting Terminal chose BackgammonMasters for this project because "BackgammonMasters known for their Backgammon community and also having the best graphics, the widest variety of games, and their platform is the most powerful and at the same time stable game software available in the industry."

BackgammonMasters is excited about the venture, which will be the first worldwide release of the Texas Holdem poker software. The BackgammonMasters spokesman was also excited to announce that once the Texas Holdem software has been successfully integrated into the terminals they will make other multi-table casino games available.

Betting Terminal Inc. terminals are based off of a remote access server. Players use prepaid cards in order to access their information and place real money bets in the system. Players can then play live against other players in private or public play mode.

From the terminal, players can open a new account or log into an account that already exists simply by swiping their credit card. There is a prepaid platform that has several payment transaction forms, just like when they play online at BackgammonMasters. In fact, playing Poker at a Betting Terminal is just like playing poker at home, but players play on terminal touch screens rather than on their computer at home.

Betting Terminal Inc. has also developed a land-based support system to offer support to terminal players. The support system will provide service to all 100 terminals. Whenever players have questions or issues they will easily be able to access Betting Terminal’s support for fast and effective assistance with the terminal or software.
