While the majority of Americans are stuck at home, there’s never been a better time for online gambling. Even though the launch of online casino apps in WV is a ways out, players can participate in the Global Poker Home Series.
The event started on March 30 and concludes on April 26.
It consists of 56 total tournaments between the Sweeps Coin and Gold Coin events. The online poker provider guaranteed over 2 million in Sweeps Cash for winners throughout the month.
This year’s Global Poker Home Series has generated a lot of interest, making it its largest to date. Global Poker’s biggest tournament in history will take place on Sunday, April 26. The event features its largest tournament event guarantee ever with SC 500,000.
The Sunday Scrimmage starts at 5:30 p.m. ET and costs 540 Sweeps Coins to enter.
Global Poker continues to grow in the poker market since debuting in 2016. Its registered player base now exceeds one million members.
This year’s Home Series is producing massive betting numbers. Tournaments’ prize pools reached new peaks, totaling SC 2,000,000 GTD and GC 70,000,000 GTD.
Although you have to pay to enter tournaments, the site offers free tickets to satellite and qualifying events often.
With West Virginia sports betting on hold for the most part, online poker is a quality gambling alternative. Global Poker provides a lot of options and can be a fun way to earn some cash.
Global Poker Home Series
The Home Series is an exciting event regardless of the circumstances. However, with most people at home practicing social distancing, a lot of new participants were eligible to play.
Even if you aren’t overwhelmingly confident about your poker skills, Global Poker has something for you. It offers a variety of different games for its community of players, many of which are free.
All of the Home Series tournaments include a buy-in fee. Some are as low as SC 33 or GC 5500.
Global Poker is known for being generous with bonuses like free tickets into certain events through promotions. This specific series has given away free tickets to satellite tournaments every day. Promo emails have been sent directly to players and Global Poker’s social medial pages have posted as well.
Tournament winners receive more than just a title. They get sent a Champions Pack, including a personalized trophy from their Home Series event. Winners also receive a bunch of Global Poker merchandise.
Some events turn out to be more exciting than others. Last week, Sunday’s tournaments showcased more than 1,100 players trying to win a prize pool of SC 200,000.
In the Scrimmage event, a user named Ryleo from Vermont took the victory after over six hours of play. They took home more than SC 27,000 with the win.
Although it does cost SC 540 to be eligible for the main event Sunday, there is a way to get a seat for cheap. There are satellite tournaments that begin as low as SC 1.50.
If you’re able to qualify in one of the given satellites, you can redeem your discounted admission for big prize money. The Sunday Scrimmage will hand out at least SC 500,000 in prizes.
