CEREUS Poker Rooms Welcome New Players with Prizes of $50k, World Cup VIP Package

April 27, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — Throughout the month of May, UB and Absolute Poker are rolling out the red carpet for online players who are new to their poker rooms. Players at both sites who fund their account for the first time between April 25th and May 30th will be awarded with access to a series of daily New Depositor Freerolls with a combined prize pool of over $50K, including a 2010 World Cup VIP Package worth $14,000.

There’s more than a warm welcome waiting  for players at UB in the $50K Soccer Freeroll Frenzy and at Absolute Poker in the South African Soccer Spectacular; it’s one online promotion with two different names, where players in both card rooms at the CEREUS Network will discover the same kickass chance to share in $50,000 in prize money across 33 New Depositor Freerolls.

Every day between the 3rd and 30th of May, UB and Absolute Poker will host a series of free to enter tournaments open to players who make a first time deposit at either site, or who fund their account for the first time via a player-to-player transfer. If it’s a goal to take advantage  of all 33 New Depositor Freerolls and to earn a maximum share of the $50,000 prize pool,  make a qualifying deposit any time between kickoff on Sunday, April 25th and before Monday, May 3rd at 16:00 ET.

Missing the initial qualifying bracket doesn’t mean being booted from the competition though, because players can still make a qualifying deposit any time during the run of the promotion through May 30th to qualify for all of the upcoming New Depositor Freerolls.

Plus, every new depositor who participates in this month-long promotion automatically earns a seat at the Grand Prize $20K Freeroll on June 5th at 14:00 ET. Top place awards the winner with the ultimate World Cup prize package valued at over $11,000  plus $3,000 for to travel to this year’s World Cup host country, South Africa.  The next 99 places pay out $9,000 in cash prizes.

Finish first in this Grand Prize Freeroll to experience all the excitement of the world’s largest and most-watched soccer extravaganza firsthand while attending two Round 16 World Cup matches in Johannesburg, along with the guest of your choice. All the VIP perks and on site hospitality is included in this trip of a lifetime prize package for two; enjoy a luxurious four-night stay at the five star Grace Hotel in the stylish suburb of Rosebank, and discover the true cosmopolitan charm of ‘Jozi’, the ‘City of Gold’.

Players can find all 33 New Depositor freerolls in the UB tournament lobby under the “EVENTS” tab, and each daily freeroll is awarding a range of different prizes, including entries to popular tournaments across the CEREUS Network, as well as cold hard cash in Wednesday’s freeroll that pays the top 500 places.

Those new to UB will find it’s easy to get started with a new account.  Simply download the free software, follow the easy steps to deposit, and play for FREE for a share of the $50K prize pool. Just as the official slogan of the 2010 World Cup says, “Ke Nako”, which translates beautifully as “It’s time”. There’s even a first time deposit bonus at both UB and Absolute Poker with complimentary cash to be had.
