While many live tournament series are beginning to wind down for the year, online poker rooms are upping the ante with lucrative tournament events as PokerStars and partypoker are kicking off online series with millions in guaranteed prizes. While you could spend the next few months grinding away at cash games or just plain getting your gamble on at sites such as allvideoslots.com, two of the biggest poker sites are giving you the perfect opportunity to give your bankroll one last boost before the beginning of the 2019 poker year.
NEW: Southern Europe Championship of Online Poker
If you’re located in France, Spain, or Portugal, PokerStars has introduced a brand new series especially for you. The first ever Southern Europe Championship of Online Poker (SECOOP) will run from October 28 through November 12 and features over €10 million in guarantees.
The series features 149 events with buy-ins ranging from €5 to €250. Between ten and twelve events will run daily, with the majority of events featuring a buy-in under €100. Event guarantees for the series range from €15,000 all the way to the €1 million guaranteed Main Event on November 11.
Also, players can compete for one of three $30,000 Platinum Passes during the series, as Daily Leader Board winners and those who complete the SECOOP Challenge can earn their way into a freeroll to play for a Platinum Pass that includes an entry into the PokerStars Players NL Hold’em Championship in January.
For those looking to stretch their SECOOP bankroll a bit further, PokerStars is offering multiple ways to win your way into events. By depositing €50 or more using the code SECOOP, you’ll be eligible to play in a freeroll awarding 200 entries into the Main Event. Special Spin & Go events will also run during the series that will award tickets worth up to €250.
