Sky Viva Vegas Promotion

A trip to Sin City, or Las Vegas as it is more commonly known, is something of a rites of passage for many poker players. Regarded by many as the home of poker, certainly the city where Texas Hold’em first took hold and became the poker game for tournament gaming.Viva Las Vegas Sky Poker Offer

For many poker players, a trip to Las Vegas would be a chance to return to what is the Mecca of the game and this spring, Sky Poker is offering its customers the chance to participate in one of the biggest poker festivals of the year, with one of its biggest and best promotions ever.

Somewhat surprisingly, Sky have decided to announce this massive promotion in two distinct phases. This first announcement details the types of packages that can be won as part of the promotion and it is these that we’ll take a closer look at for the purposes of this article.

The second announcement is due on the 26th February 2015 and will outline the types of tournaments and qualifying systems that Sky Poker will put in place in order that their customers can attempt to win one of the 35 packages available.

One of the best things about Sky Poker, especially if you are a player who plays exclusively or predominantly via mobile, is that you’ll be able to access all the satellites and other promotional events for this spectacular promotion direct from your mobile, thanks to Sky Poker’s outstanding new app and mobile site.

As always, you do need to be a Sky Poker customer to participate in this promotion and you also need to be over the age of 21 to accept one of the package prizes, due to the legislation regarding gambling in the state of Nevada.

Other information

There’s a couple of key pieces of information that players need to realise before they participate in this promotion.

The first is that the minimum age to participate in gambling in Nevada is 21. This means that unless you are aged 21 or over at the time of travel, you won’t be able to participate in the tournament.

Another key snippet of information to note is when the package that you won will be made available.

If you win one of the 30 available £3,200 packages, then you will travel out to Las Vegas on the 28th June 2015 and will stay at the hotel until you depart on the 5th July 2015. These dates are set in stone and cannot be altered.

If you win one of the five £10,000 packages, then you’ll fly out to Las Vegas on the 4th July attending the party the same night, and you will stay on at the hotel until flying back home on the 14th July 2015.

Sky Poker will provide details of how players can win all of the 35 packages available when they release the second batch of information regarding tournament and satellite schedules, plus more, on the 26th February 2015. We’ll bring you any updated information about this exciting offer after that date.
