Summer is a perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors and events with family. It is also a time when online poker sites offer premium tournament action. This week, the iPoker Network will launch the Summer Festival, providing players with €1 million in guaranteed prize money spread over several events.

The festival will run from July 29 to August 8 and include 139 numbered tournaments. Players can log in to William Hill, bet365, Betfair, and Paddy Power Poker to take part. Buy-ins will be relatively affordable with prices starting at just €5 and going as high as €200.

Details of the Summer Festival

Each of the numbered events on the schedule of the Summer Festival should meet most players’ online poker needs. The events will take place in No Limit Hold’em format, with a little Omaha featured as well.

Players will find several formats, including progressive knockouts, turbos, hyper turbos, and multi-day events. The schedule will truly offer variety and should appeal to members of sites throughout the iPoker Network.

The festival will include two Main Event tournaments, which helps everyone to get in on the action. There will be Event #133 which offers a €30 buy-in and €50,000 in prize money. There will be several Day 1s for this event starting now.

The second option is Event #144 with a €150 buy-in and €100,000 in total prize money. The event will have over 36 Day 1s, with plenty of time to take part. Both events will utilize the Best Stack Forward method, meaning players can take part in several Day 1s and move their best stack to Day 2.

Special Missions on Offer

Players participating in the Summer Festival can also participate in special Missions. There are several to pick from that run for the duration of the series. Compete in Mission tasks to earn entry tickets into freeroll competitions as you play.

Take the Satellite Mission, for example. Play in five Summer Festival online poker satellites with a minimum buy-in of €0.50, and you will earn one ticket to the #1 freeroll on August 9. Knock Out Mission requires players to knock out three players during a Summer Festival PKO event to earn a freeroll entry ticket.

If you are participating in the Summer Festival, it makes sense to opt into the missions. You can earn extra incentives, including tickets to upcoming freerolls, for a chance to win even more prizes! Check out the full schedule at participating online poker rooms to take part in tournament gaming!
