Sky Poker Mayhem Freerolls information

Viva Las Vegas Sky Poker OfferThe first thing to note about the Sky Poker Mayhem Freerolls is that while they are technically free to enter, in as much as you don’t pay a tournament fee to participate, you do have to earn enough Sky Poker Points in the 24-hours prior to the freeroll starting to earn yourself a token to play in the tournament.

For example, the first freeroll takes place on Monday 4th May at 7pm GMT. Therefore, to earn a place in this freeroll, you need to earn 25 Sky Poker Points between 7pm on Sunday 3rd May and 7pm on Monday 4th May in order to gain your free entry.

Then when the next freeroll is scheduled to take place on Tuesday 5th May, the qualification period for this will be from 7pm on Monday, to the 7pm on Tuesday and so on.

In short, if you earn 25 Sky Poker points each day that the promotion is running, then you will be able to play in all of the freeroll events.

Each freeroll event also has a £1,000 prize fund too, meaning that you will also have the chance to win your share of a guaranteed £1,000 prize pool in every freeroll that you contest.

What is a Bounty Hunter game?

Sky Poker Bounty Hunter GameIf you have never played a Bounty Hunter game on Sky then it is a version of No Limit Hold’em that is the same in almost every respect, apart from how the tournament fees are used and distributed amongst the players.

In a standard tournament on Sky Poker a player pays a tournament fee to Sky (around 10% of the buy in) and a buy in which is the bulk of what you pay and which is used to add to the pot to increase the amount of money available to be won.

In a Bounty Hunter game, your tournament fee is split (sometimes 50/50, but more often around 25/75) with the larger amount being your pot contribution but the smaller amount is placed on your head as a bounty. When a player eliminates you from the tournament, they earn 50% of your bounty as cash (which is credited to their account) with the other 50% added to their own bounty.

So for example, let’s say there is a £10 + £1 buy in Bounty Hunter on Sky Poker. Of your £10 tournament fee, £7.50 is put in the pot for the winning players, but £2.50 is placed on your head as a bounty.

When a player eliminates you, they earn £1.25 in cash added immediately to their cash account and the remaining £1.25 of your bounty would go on their head, increasing their Bounty by £1.25.

The more players you eliminate, the more cash you earn and the bigger your bounty grows, but also the more popular you would be to be eliminated by other players as they would earn more from eliminating you as you now have a bigger bounty on your head.

Bounty Hunter games focus chiefly on eliminating players and poker players who enjoy this style of poker will certainly enjoy Sky’s range of Bounty Hunter games.
