Party Poker Offering Caribbean Poker Party Prize Packages

With summer on the horizon, players will find many exciting poker tournaments being offered around the globe. Players enjoy competing in the big series events and popular tournament options hosted by classic gaming venues in beautiful locations such as the Caribbean. Because of the popularity of beautiful locations and poker events combined, online gaming sites will offer prize packages to major events. Party Poker is one online poker operator that is gearing up to provide players with an outlet to compete in a beautiful area free of charge!

Party Poker is preparing to send poker players to Punta Cana this fall to compete in the Caribbean Poker Party. Instead of suffering in the cold or snow, players will be able to go to the beautiful Caribbean, enjoying the sun, sand and surf, all the while playing poker against top competitors.

Each week, ten players at Party Poker will be able to earn a package worth $6,000 to attend the Caribbean Poker Party. The leaderboard competition will offer prize packages that include the buy-in for the event, at $2,750, $1,000 to be used for travel expenses as well as a stay at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Food and drinks will be provided for the prize package winners by the hotel during each stay.

Interestingly enough, Party Poker is allowing players to win more than one prize package. The package can be sold or transferred to friends, allowing groups of individuals to travel to the beautiful area and enjoy poker gaming as well as tropical activities together.

To participate, players will need to take part in the Power Series tournaments which are offered at Party Poker. These tournaments have buy-ins of $109 for the low end and will provide points based on player finish. Players will need to continue to take part in the Power Series tournaments to earn enough points to be listed in the top 10 of the leaderboard.

New races for the leaderboard challenge will take place beginning at 04:00 EST on Mondays. This allows players to focus each week, earning enough points to have a high seat on the leaderboard. The weekly competition just began last week so there is still time for players to compete to win a prize package.

Players do not have to opt in to compete, but simply buy-in to the tournaments of the Power Series and pay the entry fee. The finishes are tracked automatically by Party Poker for the leaderboard challenge. Tom Waters, the Party Poker Group Head, stated that the new contest gives the loyal players of Party Poker hundreds of chances to play their way to the Caribbean. The online poker site wanted to ensure that players had the opportunity to begin guaranteeing their seat to the hottest poker event of the year.

Prize package winners will be heading to Punta Cana in November as the Caribbean Poker Party will take place from the 19th to the 26th of November. There will be $2 million in prize money up for grabs and the festival will feature such events as the World Poker Tour Caribbean Main Event as well as the Party Poker Million.

The Party Poker Million event will run from the 21st to the 25th. The World Poker Tour Caribbean Main Event is set to start two days before on the 19th and will run until the 23rd. The Main Event will have a buy-in of $5,000 and will offer a $1 million prize pool.

Players who want to take part in the November tournament options but cannot afford the buy-ins should participate in the Party Poker contests as the buy-ins are much lower.
