As The Leaves Fall Take Solace with Bet365 Poker’s €400,000 Autumn Festival

September is a transitional month here in the UK as we enjoy the last vestiges of what is usually an all-too-short summer, and those shorter, cooler days and longer nights start to draw in as we head towards Autumn. By October, trees are already starting to shed their leaves and the world takes on a distinctly cooler feel.

While there are many that may bemoan the passing of summer for another year, for others autumn is a time of renewal and celebration. Halloween looms on the horizon, as does Bonfire Night and then of course a few weeks after that, Christmas and New Year will be on the horizon. However there is even more to get excited about now if you are a Bet365 Poker customer with the announcement of their newest promotion the €400,000 Autumn Festival.

Remember, if you are not yet a Bet365 customer then you can join today. Click on the following link for the latest bet365 bonus code and sign up using it. If you do then you will be able to claim not just a fantastic €5 no deposit bonus, plus a 100% deposit bonus when you make your first payment into your new account, plus there’s a host of other bonuses available for new players at Bet365 Poker too.

Once you have  joined then you’ll be able to participate in one of the biggest promotions of the year at Bet365 Poker, which we are going to explore in more detail below.

What is the €400,000 Autumn Festival promotion?

Bet365’s latest promotion gets underway on the 29th September and runs through until the 8th October, so it is a relatively short 10-day promotion and on each day, there are a total of four different poker tournaments you can play in. A buy in to these events will cost you anything from €10 to €200.

It is worth pointing out at this juncture that the majority of tournaments offer buy ins of either €10 or €20 with just a few having buy ins greater than this amount.

To help customers who may not have the funds to buy into the more expensive events, Bet365 Poker is also running extensive satellites where players can play against each other for a much smaller entry fee, with the prize of entry into one of the bigger buy in events up for grabs. These are running at Bet365 Poker right now and are a cheap and effective way, if you have the poker talent, of playing your way into the big money events at a fraction of the cost.

Whether you buy in to a tournament, or earn yourself a place in it through the satellites, once you have got your seat, you need to log in at the right time to the Bet365 Poker client software and be ready to play at the tables.

What time are the tournaments each day?

Each day of the promotion, there are tournaments slated for start times of 18:30, 19:00, 19:30 and 20:00 all UK time.  The only dates when this is different is on Sunday 1st October and Sunday 8th October when the first tournament will start at 18:00, then there is another at 18:30 followed by the final two at 19:00 and 20:00.

Of course, what you will notice immediately here is that if you want to play in two or more tournaments on the same night, then it is possible that you will have to play at two or more tables at once. Fortunately this is now very easy to do with the multi-table software now available with the Bet365 Poker client.  Indeed, you can play in all four tournaments on a single day and have all four poker tables open on your screen, whether you are playing from desktop or mobile.

What are the prizes on offer for each tournament?

The Festival #32 PLO is a Pot Limit Omaha tournament, whereas all other tournaments are played to Texas Hold’em rules. The Turbo events which take place in the final tournament most evenings are shorter stack events with faster-rising blinds which tend to be played through more quickly.

This is a fantastic opportunity over the next ten days to enjoy some top class tournament poker at Bet365 and it makes a change from the “All In” tournaments that have been part of most other promotions on the site in recent times.  So if you prefer to put your faith in your own poker ability in tournament play, do take part in this 10-day autumn promo at Bet365.
