Full Tilt Poker is now running a special promotion for Australian online poker players. The Australian Poker Hero TV show gives Full Tilt players from Australia the chance to be on Channel 9 and win a seat at the 2010 Aussie Millions at the Crown Casino in Melbourne.
Entry is free if you want to try and qualify to be the Australian Poker Hero. Satellites are now running on Full Tilt. The freerolls are on 2-3 times daily and you have to register on the Full Tilt website in order to play.
If you don’t already have an account at Full Tilt Poker – make one now.
The way that the Australian Poker Hero promotion works is that you have to finish in the top 10 of the first round freerolls. If you manage to do that you will be eligible to play in round two – which is on each Sunday. There will be 16 packages available. That means each winner of round 2 will have a chance to star on the Australian Poker Hero TV show.
A package for the winners of round 2 includes a $15,000 AUD entry to the 2010 Aussie Millions and $10,000 that you can give to the charity of your choice. Each week there will be 6 players that appear on Australian Poker Hero. They will play against 5 other celebrities and a mystery guest.
Each player will share in over $250,000 worth of prizes and 100k for charity. You and a partner will also receive 3 nights accommodation at the Crown Casino in Melbourne. If you want your chance at becoming Full Tilt’s – make an account now.
The second round of the Australian Poker Hero satellites will run at 7:30pm AEST every Sunday until November 22nd, 2009. The first round satellites are on at different times each day and night. From the ones I have seen, there is sometimes one at 7:30pm and sometimes one at 10:30pm. Check the official Full Tilt website for further details.
Remember – you don’t register for the satellites from within the poker client. You must register on the Full Tilt website.
