We can feel summer slipping from our grasp as the days cool and the sky darkens earlier. Fall is coming quick. However, don't despair. Beer lovers around the world know that this also means we will soon see the annual return of Oktoberfest!
If, somehow, you don't know what we're talking about, Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held in Munich, Bavaria, and it is considered to be the world's largest funfair with over six million people attendants every year.
So, while some six million people out there are already planning to head to Oktoberfest at their own expense, how would you like to join this incredible event for FREE?
The good people at partypoker are giving you multiple paths to head to Munich, and here's how:
Partypoker is running two free tournaments on August 24 and 31 where the winner will receive a Party Nights package. The package includes two tickets for Oktoberfest, three-nights' accommodation at the Ramada hotel, and $500 in spending money.
Even though the Party Nights Final tournaments only reward a package to the winner, the top 50 spots will receive something as well, with tons of Sony gear and tickets to a special September 1 freeroll to earn if you fall short of winning the coveted beer-filled adventure package.
How to Qualify
There are multiple paths to get into this tournament. If you do not already have a partypoker account, now is a great time to do so. If you sign up to partypoker through our links, not only will you automatically receive tickets to the two remaining freerolls, but you will also be rewarded with a huge 100% first-deposit bonus up to $600!
It isn't much more difficult to play for a partypoker Oktoberfest package if you already have an account. The easiest path is to just make a deposit using the code "OKTOBERFESTPARTY", since doing so will give you one ticket to the freeroll tournament of your choice.
You can also earn tickets through daily freerolls where the top 10 players are awarded tickets, or through five party point sub-qualifiers where the top 25 players will head to the finals.
If you are a cash game player, you can also also play 50 cash game hands within seven days of the Party Nights Final freeroll to get your hands on a ticket as well.
Last Chance Freeroll
If you think partypoker hasn't given you enough ways to head to Oktoberfest on the house, you are in luck. On September 1, partypoker is holding a special Last Chance Oktoberfest Tournament.
There are two paths to get into this tournament. The first path is finishing anywhere from 11th to 50th place in one of the two remaining Party Nights Final freeroll tournaments.
Even if you strike out in these tournaments, you can still earn yourself a ticket by opting into and completing the fun Oktoberfest mission. The missions objectives listed below all relate to Oktoberfest to hopefully get you in the mood for beer and fun.
- Win a hand with 6/4 — 6.4 million guests attended Oktoberfest in 2013
- Play 114 hands of fastforward poker — 114 oxen were at the festival last year!
- Win 24 Sit & Gos — Oktoberfest has only been cancelled 24 times in its long history
- Play 19 MTCTs — In 2008, a world record was set by a waitress carrying 19 beer Steins, totalling 45 kg!
Some of these mission objectives just require a little bit of play. The winning of a hand with might prove to be the most difficult as most of us are used to throwing these cards into the muck.
So hurry up and get your beer hats on and start playing at partypoker now.
