Qualifiers Given Opportunity To Compete For All-Access Pass To Remaining UKIPT Season 4 Main Events
Onchan, Isle of Man – June 26, 2013 – In addition to guaranteeing a massive UKIPT Galway Main Event prize pool of €1,000,000, Full Tilt Poker is giving players the opportunity to win a spot in at least eight further UKIPT Main Events with its Last Longer Sponsorship promotion. The all-access pass includes buy-ins and expenses for every remaining stop on the UKIPT Season 4 tour and is only available to players who win their UKIPT Galway Main Event entry via Full Tilt Poker’s online qualifier tournaments.
The prize package will be won by the player that outlasts all other Full Tilt Poker qualifiers in the UKIPT Galway Main Event and will be awarded in addition to whatever prize money they win in the tournament itself.
After the Galway stop, the UKIPT Season 4 tour will visit London, the Isle of Man and Nottingham in 2013, with at least five more stops scheduled for 2014, which will be announced in due course.
“The Last Longer Sponsorship prize package gives our qualifiers even more to play for – as if the €1,000,000 prize pool guarantee wasn’t enough!” said Sarne Lightman, Full Tilt Poker’s Head of Marketing. “The winner will earn a seat at all of the remaining UKIPT Season 4 Main Events, including those that have yet to be announced, and get more opportunities to add to the prize money they win in Galway.”
Full Tilt Poker players in the UKIPT Galway Main Event will receive bounties for knocking out Full Tilt Poker ambassadors. Furthermore, the winners of Events 1, 8, 25, 30, 35, 42, 44, 45, 46, 48, 55, 59 and 60 will receive an FTOPS XXIII Main Event ticket worth $635 in addition to titles and cash earnings.
