The team at Black Chip Poker have put together a wonderful set of promotions. Great deals for new players, ongoing offers that you just can't ignore and specials that crop up and are just too tempting not to get involved in. Promotions include cash bonuses, prize giveaways that include trips to amazing land based events, the awesome bad beat jackpot, freerolls, rake races and as Black Chip is on the Winning Poker Network there is of course the one and only.....The Beast! Let's take a look at what's in store from the moment you sign up and make your first deposit at Black Chip Poker.
The First Deposit Bonus and Depositor Freeroll
Black Chip Poker treat you like a VIP from the moment you make your first trip to their cashier. They understand that there is plenty of competition out there and to set them aside from the others they have created an awesome welcome deal. On you first deposit you'll receive a 100% bonus up to $1,000 with a minimum deposit of just $50. It's a generous bonus and the minimum amount is small allowing you to make that first deposit and check out the fantastic real money poker offering. Remember that this is a one off deal and on first deposits only. The bonus is paid out in $10 increments as you earn 550 Benefit Points meaning it's pretty easy to clear. The welcome bonus is not all they offer from the off either. When you make your first deposit you are invited to take your seat in a $250 new depositor freeroll that takes place every week. This freeroll is available for brand new players and those players that have signed up a while back but have yet to deposit. The New Depositor Freeroll works like this.....If you make your deposit between Sunday and Thursday you'll be entered into the freeroll on that Saturday and all remaining freerolls that month! Should you deposit between Friday and Saturday, no problem, you'll be entered into the following weeks freeroll and all subsequent freerolls for the month. That's a pretty cool little package to get you going at Black Chip.
The Beast at Black Chip Poker
The Beast is one of the best promotions around in online poker. It's the world's first and only progressive rake race, exclusive to the Winning Poker Network and Black Chip Poker that rewards players every month, and in some fine style. The great thing about the Beast is that it is guaranteed to pay out every single month, unlike some jackpot based promotions that may pay once or twice a year. Everyone who plays at the Beast tables get automatically included, and it works just like this.....
- Play at the Beast Jackpot Tables, either Texas Holdem or Omaha tables marked with 'JP'.
- At Jackpot table with 4 or more players, a tiny fee is taken in the rake which adds to the Beast Jackpot.
- You will earn points on the Beast leaderboard every time your rake increases the Beast's Jackpot.
- Track how you are getting on by checking the updated leaderboard each day.
- You can earn thousands in cash and tourney entries and the six figure jackpot is distributed monthly.
The monthly cash race is paid out monthly and is calculated on the size of the prize pool, as that grows, so does the number of players that get paid out. For example, if the prize pool is $90,000 then the top 360 players get paid. The top 20 players get a split of 13% of the whole pot so as you can see the more you play at the beast tables the better off you could be. The Monthly Tournament race is separate to the cash race and this offers seats in satellite events leading to seats at Punta Cana and the LSOP. This is one truly awesome promotion and the best thing is that it costs you nothing and pays out staggering amounts.
The $10,0000 Sit and Go Race
If you love sit n go's then this monthly special is just for you. Simply play sit n go's all month and earn points that go towards the SNG Race leaderboard. The top 120 players then get a slice of the $10,000 prize pool that pays out at the end of each month. The first placed player is guaranteed $1500 and even down at 120th place you'll still get a nice $25 added to your account. The points are calculated by using your tourney entry fee so they more expensive tourneys will give you more points, but playing plenty of the smaller ones will do just as good.
Guaranteed tournaments are a big deal at Black Chip Poker and there are plenty of them to choose from. The big tourney of the week is the $50K Sunday 7 pm event with a direct buy in of $200, however as with all GTD's at Black Chip there are plenty of ways that you can satellite your way in to the main event for a fraction of the price. There's also the $10K GTD that takes place every Saturday, the $10K Deep Stack tourney which runs every single night from Monday through to Friday which means that at Black Chip, every night of the week there is a minimum of a $10,000 guaranteed tournament going on, that's very cool indeed. Smaller GTD's include the Sunday $7.5K and the Wednesday $2.5K midweek special. These great guaranteed tourneys sit nicely in with the rest of the tournament schedule making it a full on busy schedule that keeps players playing all week long.
As well as the promotions mentioned here, Black Chip Poker also offers regular special promotions such as the Latin Series of Poker where players can win trips to awesome land based tournaments, and the Punta Cana Classic is a very special event at Black Chip and as soon as you sign up and start playing real money poker you will be notified of absolutely everything that's going on at this fantastic online poker room.
