Win a Grand in The Grand Hand at 888poker


One of the great things about 888poker is that the online poker room consistently offers ways for its players to grab free cash, tournament tickets and other benefits.

A fun and potentially lucrative promotion, dubbed The Grand Hand, is just one way for you to pad your bankroll, compliments of the house.

The Grand Hand began on June 17 and runs until Aug. 7. It gives you two chances every day to win cash prizes up to $1,000 for free!

How to Qualify

Getting involved in this promotion couldn't be any easier. In fact, you are automatically eligible if you are already the proud owner of an account at 888poker, have made at least one real-money deposit, and have bet at least $1 at 888poker in the last 24 months.

Don't worry if you don't already have an account at 888poker as we are about to tell you how you can be eligible for this promotion and more. To start, simply download 888poker through PokerNews. This will get you $88 in free value to test the waters, but it won't automatically qualify you for the promotion.

To qualify for the promotion, you will also have to make your first deposit. The good news is that this deposit will be matched up to $888 in the form of a bonus to give you plenty more to play for than just this promotion.

Once you are eligible, you can find out what the hand of the day is in the lobby of the poker client. From there, you can earn up to two scratch cards per day if you win a hand after the flop holding the hand of the day. This must take place either in a tournament with at least a $1 buy-in or at a no-limit hold'em cash game table with stakes of at least $0.02/$0.05.

Each scratch card awards one of the prizes listed below.

$6,000 Grand Hand Tournament Ticket92.747%
$1 Cash6%
$10 Cash1.2%
$100 Cash0.05%
$1,000 Cash0.003%

Even if you don't win one of the cash prizes on your scratch card ranging from $1 to $1,000, you will still be awarded something special as the other prize is a freeroll ticket to the $6,000 Grand Hand Tournament.

You can either use the ticket for the daily $6,000 Grand Hand Skills Tournament running at 3:30 p.m. ET or the $6,000 Grand Hand Lucky Tournament at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Which tournament you enter depends mostly on whether you want to let luck take over or put your skills to the test.

If you have the time, we recommend you consider the skill-based tournament, since it typically gets far fewer runners than the all-in tournament. This means you have a better chance to win one of the top prizes.

The Grand Hand won't be around forever. Create your free 888poker account today to get started on your path to free loot.
