Massive welcome package at 888 poker

By The Boss | August 26, 2009

888 poker have upped the ante by adding a $50,000 First Depositors Challenge to their welcome package for new depositing players.

This package was already pretty good at a 100% deposit match of up to $400 PLUS free entry to seven $500 First Depositors Freerolls AND a free entry to the weekly Depositors $1,000 Freeroll. But now they have added their new $50K challenge which makes this new package probably the best we have seen yet from 888 poker.

Every new depositor at 888 poker gets a free entry to the $50K First Depositor Challenge. This tournament is held every Friday night and the top twenty finishers each get a seat in the Saturday Challenge. The ‘Challenge’ series of online poker tournaments are run every night on 888 Poker, with the Saturday Challenge Tournament having a guaranteed prize pool of $50,000!

The other daily Challenge tournaments are worth checking out too, as they have buy-ins to suit every bankroll level, and satellites starting as low as $1.00 + $0.10.
