Thanks for sharing! My tickets still are not being credited, but that's normal for 888poker. At least for me they always take 1-2 days to the promotion start to work regulary. I guess is better this promotion than nothing, but each time their promotions are getting worse.

Yeah they cut and cut. Before this Promotion there was a long time without anything. No wonder with their software.
We are now down to $300 daily freerolls, $2k weeklies, and a $60k final. Must be some rainy days in 888 HQs.

The promo appears to me to be extremely weak sauce and if I could find a rolling eyes emoji I would insert it into this thread now.

The promotions at 888 are definitely getting weaker, $300 with thousands of players vying for it isn't much of incentive, not to mention that for those of us on the West Coast all the games are during working hours so weekends are the only time we can play any of them.
I remember when there were 2 $3k freerolls daily, one of which was an all-in game I was able to register for before leaving for work. It was a nice bonus logging in after getting home from work and seeing extra money if I managed to cash (I went deep 1 time for $37, not bad for not even having to play).

I actually got off early today and played my first game from the new promotion, I managed a whopping $0.45.:p

Still i kinda wonder how much 888 spends on freerolls :unsure:
Some unibet representative once said that they spend 250K a year on them so 888 probably should spend like (atleast) 2-4* bigger amounts ...

I like what they did with the $2k mystery bounty freeroll.

There were no bounties until the 14th level, which is where the bubble burst (450 players) at which point everyone had a bounty from $0.76 up to $200.
I made it past the bubble, but only had 1 shot at getting a bounty due to being low on chips (was 7th in chips on my table).

I also like they reveal each bounty as players are KO'd. The bounty I tried to get turned out to be just $1 and my bounty was just $0.76.
It is kind of unfair to those who have the biggest bounty, there is just 1 $200 bounty so the player holding that bounty can only win it by winning the whole tourney.

Lol...32 out if 3070 for a whopping 0.54 Dollars. 888 starting strong into the new year! Looks like there is next to no value for finishing those challenges. Wont do any.

Hopefully they offer some bigger tourneys as well like they did with other promotions in the past where they had 3 different levels. A $300 prize pool is weak. Only good thing is I got 3 tickets super quick with a small amount of cash game play

Bubbled the final table for $2.10. Looks like you really need to get to final table to win anything decent. Top prize was $32 on the one I did.

From what I can see there are other challenges to get tickets to bigger events, which are probably worth completing as i am most of the way there with relatively little play

I played a couple of times, then I registered and didn’t play, I’m very skeptical about freerolls with free tickets, where several thousand players play and each has 10 tickets, there is a circus and not poker, but in general 888 holds at least some promotions, when there is absolutely nothing to do, you can have fun in these tournaments, for example, I have never played a single freeroll on PS (except CC freerolls of course)

The "challenges" are too easy to complete. Most people are probably getting tickets without even trying. They can keep the prizepool low, but make the challenges harder.
