Route 32: Flip Flop to Tallinn

July 28, 2017 by  
Filed under Featured, News

It’s a feather in the cap of any poker venue to be so successful that players want to return, yet Tallinn, Estonia’s picturesque, characterful capital, has gone even further by being selected to play host to the MPN Poker Tour for a third time!

Team32Red is now very well represented at MPNPT festivals around the globe, thanks to 32Red offering an assortment of qualifying bankroll-friendly routes to these excellent events.

Our latest promotion, which runs throughout August, is so bankroll-friendly, in fact, that it’s totally free to take part. Route 32: Flip Flop to Tallinn has over €3000 in MPNPT tickets to win, including a €1,500 MPNPT package for the €150,000 event for the winner and a €550 Main Event seat for the runner-up.

The package includes the €550 buy-in for the €150,000 Main Event, entry to the €110 Side Event, four nights (for two, including breakfast) at the Hilton Tallinn Park Hotel, €300 towards travel/expenses and an invite to the ever-popular Players Welcome Party!

And the whole promo is based around Flip tournaments, where everyone is automatically all-in every hand, so no actual playing is even necessary until the Final (1 September). The top 8 survivors in the nightly (10pm UK) Flips win starting chips for The Final (a standard NLH tournament), and to register for each Flip qualifier you need only make the corresponding number of raked hands for that day (e.g. 5 raked hands for Route 5, 15 for Route 15 and so on).

That’s it – just hit the cash tables as usual, rack up a few raked hands each day to register, and build your starting stack by accumulating chips as the month progresses. Good luck, and have fun!

Summer Sales (31 Jul – 6 Aug)

Filed under Featured, News

There’s a great promotion taking place between 31 July and 6 August that is sure to be a big hit with tournament regulars and newcomers alike – make the most of the Summer Sales as August kicks in!

Contrary to what some people might believe, poker players have an eye for a bargain, ‘value’ being a key part of any serious player’s vocabulary. With that in mind, the Summer Sales promo is good news on two levels because we’re making player-friendly adjustments at both ends of the tournament experience.

On each day of the promotion four of our most popular tournaments will have their buy-ins reduced, while the incentive to perform well will be higher than ever because we’re adding extra funds to the prize money!

For example, the Jungle Jim tournament usually has a buy-in of €10 and a €1,500 guaranteed prize fund, but the edition at 8:30pm GMT on 31 July will instead have a €5.50 buy-in and a prize pool of €2,000.

So, there you have it – reduced buy-ins and increased prize money, four tournaments per day for a whole week. Good luck, and have fun!

Festival of Speed

Festival of Speed (8-25 June)

Poker is no longer about grinding away for hours with the intention of securing a few big blinds’ worth of profit. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with such an approach, but most people have a limited window in which to enjoy time at our poker tables, which is why the emphasis nowadays is increasingly on having a good time. Poker is entertainment, after all.

With this in mind, our Festival of Speed, which will run between 8-25 June, is sure to set the pulses racing because it’s all about speed. Time – more specifically, what we can achieve in a limited amount of time – is a key factor of modern-day online poker. It’s always interesting to see how differently we perform when this particular element is tweaked – can we make the same, tactically sound decision whether we have a minute or seconds in which to think? Do we become so impatient while waiting around to get involved in a hand that, as soon as we fold, we’re so eager to taste the action that we find ourselves committing chips with mediocre cards?

The Festival of Speed covers both these subjects, in fact. First, we have a Super Turbo Multi-Table Tournament Series – a juicy 39 very bankroll-friendly events where speed is of the essence and the more you can put yourself nicely ‘in the zone’ while those around you struggle, the better chance you have of helping yourself to a share of the €50,000 in guaranteed prize money on offer in the series.

We’ll also be rolling out a 32Red favourite in the form of Blazing Cannon. For those who have not yet had a go at this dinky game, it runs alongside our speedy Blaze Poker format, which is designed to do away with waiting around twiddling our proverbial thumbs by transporting players automatically to a new table and a new hand immediately after each hand ends. No delays, no hanging about for a hand to finish, but straight back into the action. Then, when you’ve won/shared a pot in 20 raked hands you’re brought to the Blazing Cannon video game, the task being to knock down a stack of cards with a burning chip fired from a cannon, with a chance of winning €1, €10 or even €100 in cash. Poker is never boring at 32Red!

The third part of the festival is Added Money Turbo SNGs. Quite simply, SNGs with buy-ins ranging from €1 to €20 will have money added to the prize pool, so it’s just a matter of heading to the Sit & Go section of the Poker Lobby and keeping your eyes peeled for the specials.

And, finally, don’t forget to make the most of the Bonus Promotion: Fire the Blazing Cannon twice, play 10 Festival of Speed events and play 15 Festival of Speed SNGs and you’ll earn exclusive entry to the €5,000 Festival Flash Freeroll (2 July).

So there you have it… poker goodies coming at you from all directions between June 8-25. Enjoy.

€50,000 Cash Drop (May 4-31)

50KCashDrop_588x300

Sometimes something good just falls right into your lap, and this is what happens during our €50,000 Cash Drop promo – every five minutes we’ll be ‘dropping’ €5 into a player’s account, at random, for the rest of the month!

Numbers-wise, this will mean giving away €40,000 in total by the 31st, and to be eligible to receive a cash drop the criteria isn’t rocket science: simply play at our cash tables. All our promotions are fun and interesting, but this particular one is fantastic in its simplicity because our players benefit by virtue of the fact that they’re just enjoying themselves playing cash poker.

It’s also important to note that this is very player-friendly in that poker fans who play a single table are equally likely to be the recipient of a cash drop as those who multi-table!

Meanwhile, if you’re wondering what the other €10,000 of the promotion is for, there’s another element in the form of a €10K Cash Drop Leaderboard. With each cash drop received you’ll earn one point towards the Leaderboard table, and at the end of the month those who have accumulated the most points will win a share of the booty – the more cash drops you get, the bigger your ultimate prize. And that’s not all – to spice proceedings up a bit we’ve added two special additional prizes: a €1500 MPNPT Package and a €550 MPNPT Seat will be awarded to the winner and runner-up respectively.

So, if you’re already a cash games player, then carry on doing what you do best and, if you’re new or inexperienced as far as cash games go, remember that we have bankroll-friendly limits as low as €2 max tables.
Have fun, good luck and see how many cash drops you can collect between now and the end of May…

32Red regular wins Fish Party Jackpot

March 6, 2017 by

FishParty_Blog_588x300-1

The Sit & Go format has been popular since the beginning of the online poker boom for more than one reason. A key attraction is that players can enjoy the atmosphere of a tournament in a matter of minutes, while being up against a limited number of opponents also increases the likelihood of winning a prize.

The word ‘prize’ has taken on considerably more significance now that players are enjoying the fast-paced, three-player Fish Party Sit & Go tournaments because, thanks to the set-up revolving around progressive jackpots, the prizes at stake could be literally tens of thousands the size of the buy-in.

This happened yesterday when, while the players of a €5 tournament watched the mini Fish Party slot feature determine how much they were playing for, the amount the reels produced was a staggering €128,126!

Most of the time there’s one prize, which starts off at twice the buy-in, but with such an enormous jackpot all three players are guaranteed a chunk of the cash. As it turned out it was a 32Red Poker regular, Ronald A (aka fini00) who beat his two rivals to take the lion’s share – €64,063 to be precise. Not that the others will have been complaining to earn €38,437 and €25,625 respectively for their initial €5 buy-in…

Here’s what Ronald had to say…“Ever since the €1 Fish Party jackpot had been hit I started playing the €5 Fish Party tournaments a lot more when I could. I would play up to 8 tables at a time but I found that I couldn’t play any other tournaments because of how quick they go, and a €5 loss here and there can add up when you have a small bankroll as I did. Less than two weeks ago the €10 Fish Party Jackpot hit, and it was just a matter of time before somebody would hit the €5 jackpot.

On March 5th I played as usual. I was concentrating more on my multi-table tournaments rather than the Sit & Gos when out of the corner of my eye I saw the first fish party symbol pop up. I jumped out of my chair because I knew that the prize is determined based on the first symbol. My sound was off on my laptop so I don’t know what new sound I would hear. My heart started racing. I only dreamt about having a chance to play for the jackpot and with my luck over the past few months, I never thought that it would happen to me.

I ended up sitting out on all the other tables because a mis-click here would be devastating. I had to close the chat because I tried to type and play at the same time. Bad idea. I was nervous until I lost with AK to some hand that I don’t remember. I was down to 170 in chips. I was able to double up a few hands later and then put my tournament on the line with KQ all-in pre-flop against AJ. I had even more luck on my side and I survived. From then on I think I played as well as I could. I had over a 2 to 1 chip lead and was faced with a call this time with KQ. Blinds were high at this time and it seemed like my opponent was getting restless. I called, and he/she showed Q4 or K4 unsuited I believe. My hand held and I won. I checked my account a few times to make sure it was real. It’s hard to describe the feeling.”

Following on from another recent hit, when a €10 game paid out a whopping total of €207,438 (with the winner receiving €103,719), this is sure to attract even more players to what has already established itself as a fun way to spend a poker session.

The Classic: A week of pure tournament poker

January 10, 2017 by  
Filed under News

TheClassic_Blog_588x300

‘Classic’ is an over-used word that should suggest quality but rarely does. At 32Red, The Classic series of tournaments that runs until 15 January promises to live up to the true definition of the word: namely ‘the established standard, the highest rank’ …

And that isn’t just because the total guaranteed prize money over the 30 standard freezeout tournaments amounts to a whopping €350,000. It isn’t just about the money. Well, it is, we hear you say, but even if the ultimate aim is to win, it’s vital that you both enjoy yourself along the way and feel that you’re getting value and a fair crack of the whip.

With this in mind, we‘ve put together a varied series of freezeout events that is easy on the bankroll and lends itself to a level playing field. A combination of affordable buy-ins and many cheap-as-chips satellite tournaments means that The Classic is a genuine every-man festival.

There’s something ‘pure’ about the freezeout format in that players don’t have the (quasi-) luxury of being able to gamble, rebuy, gamble, rebuy and so on. Instead, control, patience, timing and guile are more of a priority because there’s just the one starting stack on which to build your tournament success. No second chances, no lifeline, no phone a friend – everyone starts with the same chance, and the trick is to navigate your way around, bobbing and weaving through the freezeout jungle.

Untitled

Of course, we also like to add something extra to our special events, and this time there are two additional, exclusive freerolls that will benefit both winners and the less fortunate. First, we have the €10,000 Final Table Heroes Freeroll (22 January; 6:30pm GMT). To qualify you need to make just one final table. The winner of this event will be crowned the Classic Hero…

Then we have the aptly named Bubble Busters Freeroll (22 January; 4pm GMT), with five €215 Sunday Showdown tickets up for grabs. You can earn your place in this tournament only by being knocked out ‘on the bubble’ (i.e. finishing 31st when the top 30 are paid).

Good luck, and enjoy some classic tournament poker!

32 Days of Poker… Better than Christmas

32-days-of-poker-2015-588x300

While it’s true that talk of Christmas always seems to come earlier every year, Christmas itself never does. But our 32 Days of Poker starts at the beginning of December and, by the time Santa Claus has arrived, we’ll already have given away 25 days’ worth of festive goodies.

We’ve even put together a special advent calendar in the form of a Christmas tree complete with baubles, each one representing what you can look forward to every day of the month. We start, for example, with a €250 Freeroll on the 1st December at 9pm UK time. It’s free to enter, and you’ll get a bonus of having double the standard starting chips simply by having made 25 raked hands in the seven days before the tournament.

This isn’t by any means the only freeroll during the promotion, and the prize funds go up as the month progresses. Meanwhile, there are bonus chips galore – again increasing, every Friday, to total 190! And all you have to do to collect them is log on at 32Red Poker!

We even have non-poker goodies in store for you because it’s fun to make the most of what the Poker Lobby has to offer – namely our fantastic online Casino. This is accessible directly from the Poker Lobby, and you can use your poker account to play. However, this being the festive season, we want you to enjoy some time playing casino games ‘on the house’ and, to get you started, we’re giving away free spins at some of our most popular slots games. Win a hand in a Hold’em game with pocket fours on Day 6, for instance, and we’ll reward you with 10 free spins (each worth 15 cents) on our Tomb Raider game…

Go on, click on it 🙂

Those of you who have been following the exploits of your fellow 32Red players who won their places on Team32Red at various MPN Poker Tour events around the globe (the most recent being in the very luxurious, opulent surroundings of the Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort in Morocco – see pics!) can win a €1,500 MPNPT package during the promo, with the New Year’s Special (1st January) boasting 10 packages!

We also have an additional promo ready that will run in tandem from 16th December. The theme is the ‘cash drop’ – €2 literally ‘dropped’ into someone’s account during a cash game, every five minutes for a whole three weeks, combined with qualifying tournaments for places at the Vienna 9: €32K Cash Game Adventure, a big money cash game in Vienna in January!

This is just a taste of what to expect in our 32 Days of Poker. To find out more see our schedule of daily offerings, or click on the relevant bauble on our advent calendar for further details. We hope you have a month’s worth of festive poker fun at 32Red!

Vienna 9: €32K Cash Game Adventure

Vienna9_Blog_588x300

Vienna 9 – be there or be square. It’s a LIVE cash game, in Vienna, with a massive €30,000 at stake, and you could be part of it simply by doing no more than you usually do at 32Red: namely having a great time playing poker!

We like promotions to be fun, but this one has an ongoing incentive as well as the top prize because it’s based around our popular ‘cash drop’ theme. Here’s how it works: we’ll be making random Cash Drops of €2 at cash games, literally every five minutes, every hour, every day from December 16th until January 6th in our special Virtual Cash Drop promo.

As well as qualifying as one of the Vienna 9 for this big money cash game – which will take place 25th January 2017 and be streamed online on Twitch from the Montesino Casino – you can also win a €1,500 MPN Poker Tour package and a €550 MPNPT seat. The idea is that there will be three free entry qualification tournaments for which you earn the right to play in simply by collecting these (random) virtual cash drops. With each drop your starting stack for a freeroll increases by 1,000 chips, so that a couple of cash drops earn you 2,000 chips, six drops make a starting stack of 6,000 etc. It couldn’t be easier, and all the while at the tables there’s a chance, every five minutes, that money will be added to your account (to be used immediately).

Here’s the freeroll tournament schedule:

Untitled

To win an all-expenses paid trip to the Vienna 9 Live €30,000 cash game you need to finish in the top three places in a qualifying tournament, with the eventual buy-ins awarded according to final placings as follows:

And there you have it. Win a place at Vienna 9 by playing cash games, seeing money drop into your virtual lap and then qualifying via one of three freeroll tournaments.

Poker Rule: Opt in to the Bad Beat Jackpot!

July 1, 2016 by  
Filed under News

bad-beat-jackpot-new-588_3002

Thanks to the Bad Beat Jackpot, you can win big by losing an ‘unlucky’ hand at 32Red, and you can also earn a share of the jackpot booty just by playing at the same blind level as the jackpot hand!

All you need to do to be in with a chance of receiving a cut of the progressive jackpot prize is remember to opt in when you play at our cash tables, and it’s simply a matter of clicking on the BB icon.

Recently, quite a few players were more than happy that they opted in when the jackpot was hit three times during a six-day period. Here’s a rundown of what happened so that you can see how it’s possible to boost your bankroll by hundreds of euros and more even if you play at €20 max tables, for example.

June 19th saw the BBJ hit on a €100 max table when the running total was at €18,977.50… Four of a Kind, Jacks, lost to KKKK, which meant that the two players who had invested a few seconds opting in with a mere click of the BB icon each found themselves €948.87 richer simply because they were playing €100 max, too!

19

A day later, this time on a €20 max table, and with the Jackpot standing at €17,723.86, 5555 lost to 8888. This time three players had opted in, each pocketing €590.79!!

20

Are you getting the idea…?

On June 25th the BBJ was hit yet again, on a €50 max table. The Jackpot had reached €18,720.53 when a Queen-high straight flush lost to a royal flush(!), leading to a great example of just how much you can win by opting in and being ‘there’ when the jackpot is hit: two players – kuilu8 and Gustavsberg – who had opted in and were at the jackpot table were each rewarded with €1,560! Meanwhile, the only other player who had opted in saw his bankroll increase by €624, just for playing at the same blind level!

25

As an additional incentive, the latest development at 32Red Poker is that the actual BBJ winner will also receive a €1,500 MPN Poker Tour package!

Have fun at the tables. Good luck, and remember to opt in…
