Online poker players, don your scariest costumes and prepare for some Halloween fun on MPN this week. The Microgaming Poker Network is hosting a 7-day Omaha extravaganza. The creepy competition is called Four Card Fright Fest, featuring freakish guaranteed tournaments and added-money SNGs.
The 14 event series began October 26 and will continue right through Halloween to November 1, the date of the big finale. All in all, a minimum of €12,000 will be given away across 14 guaranteed events, with an inestimable amount destined to be given away in added money via Omaha Sit’n’Gos.
MPN Four Card Fright Fest GTDs
Two guaranteed Four Card Fright Fest events will take place each day leading up to the €5k GTD finale on November 1. Aside from the big finale, buy-ins range from as little as €1.10 to as high as just €5.50, with prize pools starting at €100 and rising to €2,500 throughout the week.
The Four Card Fright Fest finale will take place at 7:30pm GMT on Sunday, where €55 buys players a seat in the €5,000 GTD event.
The majority of the games played, including the finale tournament, will be Pot Limit Omaha (PLO), with a trio of PLO Hi-Lo games in the mix.
The largest guarantees will be hosted on Tuesday, Oct 27, and Thursday, Oct 19, both featured as PLO Hi-Lo tournaments. Tuesday’s second event, kicking off a 7:30pm, boasts a €5.50 buy-in with a minimum of €1,250 up for grabs. At the same time on Thursday, a €5.50 ticket earns players entry to the €2,500 GTD.
MPN Four Card Fright Fest SNGs
Members of any online poker room that operates on the MPN can participate in Omaha Sit’n’Go tournaments for a shot at some extra cash all week long. Every PLO and PLO Hi-Lo SNG listed with a buy-in of €1 to €20 will have cash added to the overall prize pool.
All tournaments eligible for the SNG Four Card Fright Fest promo, and the amount of cash to be added, will be clearly visible in the online poker tournament lobby.
Omaha Cash Game Bonus Promotion
Microgaming wants to make sure every member of the poker network has a shot at the Four Card Fright Fest finale this Sunday. They’ve invoked a special bonus promotion in which every player who takes part in just one hand of real money PLO at the cash game tables will earn a ticket into a €5.50 satellite tournament. Players can also buy directly into the satellites for €5.50.
Satellites will be hosted nightly at 8:00pm GMT through October 31. The winners of each satellite will win the €55 entry to the big €5k finale on Sunday.
“If ever there was a more wicked poker game than Omaha, I haven’t played it,” said Alex Scott, the ‘Chieftain of the Undead Poker Horde at Microgaming’ (aka MPN’s Head of Poker). “This Halloween we’ll bring four cards to the forefront in a full-on festival of fright. No flopped monster will survive!” Alex Scott, Chieftain of the Undead Poker Horde at Microgaming.”
