PartyPoker Oktoberfest Rake Race

Having lost some serious ground to iPoker in recent days, PartyPoker is hoping that its Oktoberfest Rake Race promotion will help boost its worldwide rankings.

Following the closure of the world’s second largest online poker room, Full Tilt Poker, Party was quick to absorb a large number of FTP’ player pool.  Outside of PokerStars, PartyPoker was the biggest beneficiary.  A rake-free tournament promo helped reel in newbies.

The Oktoberfest Rake Race kicks off 12 August and lasts until 21 August. 

16 players will be rewarded tickets to Oktoberfest in Germany.  Placing high in one of two points races (the later is scheduled at the end of the month) qualifies for the Oktoberfest vacation package.  A few dozen other customers will receive cash prizes and Apple gadgets.  A few hundred players (up to 400) will qualify for an exclusive VIP Oktoberfest and Super Gadget Freeroll. 

……888poker continues to grow rapidly and to celebrate they are adding EXTRA cash to selected guaranteed tournaments, including DOUBLING our Sunday Challenge to $100,000!

888poker guaranteed tournaments run 24/7 hours. Look for the word ‘EXTRA’ to find the next guaranteed tournament with an extra prizepool added.

For the big win, play the Sunday Challenge at 19:35 GMT now boasts a whopping $100,000 prizepool, and still with the same low entry fee!
