UltimateBet.com Is Holding A Cage-Side Seat Giveaway

While giving away free perks and bonuses isn’t rare for online or land based casinos, when the giveaways involve tickets to something exciting like tickets to the Bellator Fighting Championship, players get very excited. Premium online casino, UltimateBet.com, has announced it will be giving away packages of VIP plans to the upcoming Bellator Fighting Championship events. Players who win free-to-enter tournaments will be eligible to have a chance to win.

UltimateBet.com is a Kahnawake-licensed domain and is well known for their high level of service in the online casino industry. The group recently signed a sponsorship agreement with the featured American mixed martial arts league and decided to plan this bonus opportunity for their players. To celebrate their new sponsorship, they are holding Bellator freerolls each week (on Thursday evenings until June 24).

Each winner of each freeroll no-limit Hold ‘Em tournament will get two cage-side seats at the upcoming Bellator event during their 2010 season. In addition, the winner of these two cage-side seats will also get photos in the cage, which is quite rare indeed. In addition to cage-side seat prizes, there will be official Bellator and UltimateBet.com prizes and goods given away as well as $300 in cash for travel expenses of the winners.

The good news is the Bellator events are going to be targeted to coincide with mixed martial arts in various regions, making it easier for winning players to get to the events with ease. For instance, one of the freeroll competitions was exclusive to Florida players with the winner getting a VIP package to the Bellator event at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Thus, the $300 travel expense add-in could be very well used.

Other past and upcoming UltimateBet.com Bellator Tournament events include players from Indiana and Illinois going full out for the chance to win a Bellator event at the Chicago Theatre. In addition, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York players are given the chance to win seats to the Bellator event in Uncasville, Connecticut. Likewise, Kansas and Missouri players will get the chance to win a VIP cage-side package for the Kansas City Power And Light District Bellator event.

With millions of online poker fans also being fans of Bellator Fighting Championship events, it’s expected the UltimateBet.com partnership will be a successful one indeed. There may even be more future prizes given away as a result of this new teaming
