As the Online World Challenge (OWC) moves towards its conclusion this week, Global Poker is celebrating the successful series with not one, but two SC$10,000 guaranteed tournaments.
The regular weekly SC$7,500 on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. ET has been bumped up to the new SC$10,000 guarantee this week. Global Poker has done this despite the fact that the tournament has consistently averaged a SC$2,000 overlay, so be sure to get take advantage while you can.
At 3:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, players can take part in the OWC Monster Challenge which is a SC$10,000 freeroll! To see if you have qualified for these two events, simply log into your Global Poker account and hit the ‘Track Your Progress’ button.
“We couldn’t be happier with how successful the Online World Challenge has been,” said Founder and CEO Laurence Escalante. “We were optimistic, but to give away $1.5 million in cash prizes was incredible. It just shows how much the U.S. poker community is enjoying playing on Global Poker.”
“We have already started plans for an even bigger tournament series than the Online World Challenge,” Escalante added. “We are really excited by what’s coming up!”
If you have been around poker players in the United States lately then you have probably heard about Global Poker. The new kid on the block as far as online poker sites go has taken the poker world by storm. After launching recently, Global Poker has cemented itself in the top 10 sites worldwide for player volume and as the fastest growing site for US players.
It doesn’t matter what your stake or preference is, Global Poker has something for you. Using their virtual currency of $weeps Cash players can enjoy both full ring and shorthanded games from stakes of $0.02-$0.04 right up to $10-$20 in both Texas hold’em and Omaha.
You may be asking yourself “what is $weeps Cash and what is it about them that has made Global Poker the most popular new site among US poker players?” The good news is that it is actually a simple process which more and more players are using to play for real cash prizes.
You can jump onto the Global Poker website and purchase a virtual currency called Gold Coinsusing your PayPal account. You can then use these Gold Coins to enter into ring games, sit n go’s and tournaments. Gold Coins work much the same as play money chips on other poker sites, meaning that you can accumulate them and use them in different games but they can never be redeemed for real money.
As a way to promote the sale of Gold Coins, players are given bonus sweepstakes prizes by way of $weeps Cash with every Gold Coin purchase that they make. The $weeps Cash can be used to buy into the $weeps Cash tournaments and ring games however any of these that are accumulated or won can be cashed out through PayPal as real cash prizes.
