Sky Poker June Promotions

June is a month where most people’s thoughts turn to summer and perhaps the promise of a week or two away in the sun in some exotic, far-flung holiday hotspot. However, whether you are abroad, or enjoying the sunshine at home, you don’t have to miss out on your usual poker action especially now Sky Poker have announced two great offers for the month of June.

We’ll look at each of these offers in detail individually and let’s begin with one of the biggest and most exciting promotions on Sky Poker this year, the 6-Max UK Poker Championships.

Best of all, if you are a new customer to Sky Poker, you will receive Sky bonus no deposit worth £10 free, which is a great way to get started at the site.

The Sky Poker Six-Max UK Poker Championships

This will be the fourth year that Sky Poker has played a key role in deciding which lucky players will participate in the biannual 6-Max UK Poker Championships. Unlike other promotions on SkySky Poker Poker, this is a promotion which offers only satellites into the Main Event, which is being held once again at the fabulous Dusk Til Dawn Casino in Nottingham.

The Main Event has a total cash prize pool of £250,000 guaranteed and a direct buy in is £550, however, you cannot buy in directly via Sky Poker to the Main Event.

You can only qualify for the main event via satellites on Sky Poker for the foreseeable future. If you wish to buy in directly to the Main Event, then you need to visit the Dusk Till Dawn Casino beforehand in order to receive instructions on how to do so and to make the required payment.

However, if you are playing on Sky Poker then you can satellite your way into the Main Event for as little as £1.30.

Who knows you could follow Fraser Bellamy, Leigh Wiltshire and Alex Spencer as the next big winner of the Sky Poker 6-Max UK Poker Championships in 2015.

There are two different satellite schedules in operation, one used from Monday through to Saturday and the other schedule is used on a Sunday. Here’s the details of each.

Monday to Saturday satellite schedule
