The US friendly online poker room, casino and sports betting operation BetOnline has taken the poker side of its offering a lot more seriously these last 12 months, and that’s shown in the promotions and tournament sizes available, with big increases being seen in the amount of cash being rewarded in both. The amount of new players hitting the virtual felt has of course increased and that’s one of the reasons that BetOnline Poker are yet again offering their $50,000 Extreme Sit N Go Leaderboard Challenge during the month of September.

This is a great leaderboard challenge and one with a difference in that cash prizes are paid out twice monthly, with 25% of the cash paid out on September 17th and the rest at the end of the month. It’s also important to point out that the cash prizes on the EXtreme Sit N Go leaderboards are paid out as fixed amounts, and there is no percentage of a prize pool given, the prize amounts are fixed, so for example, the Gold leaderboard winner gets $11,200, the Silver will get $2,700 and Bronze receives $900. The level you fall into, i.e Gold, Silver or Bronze will depend on the buy in amounts of the sit n go’s you play in.

The Extreme Leaderboard Sit N Go Extreme Challenge is as simple as playing in as many BetOnline sit n go tournaments as possible and accumulating as many points as you can, and we’re not going to make it sound more complicated than it actually is. There’s also a little treat on September 17th in the shape of the $500 Mid Point Freeroll and at the end of the challenge there’s the $1,000 freeroll for those players who have earned enough points to get their free seat. It’s a cool, simple and rewarding poker promotion, and if you enjoy playing sit n go tourneys then you may as well be playing them at BetOnline Poker.
