March 2, 2011 (CAP PR Wire) – One of the big three poker rooms in the US is giving online poker players exclusive backstage access to the big four of heavy metal. Leading online poker site UB.com is teaming up with Revolver and Bluff to give poker fans unprecedented access to the Big 4 Festival where, for the first time in US history, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax will perform together live.
Through a free online poker freeroll on March 26th at 16:00 ET, UB.com is giving away a VIP package to the Big 4 Festival that includes two tickets to the event, two backstage passes, $2,500 for travel and accommodations and UB-branded swag. Everyone at the final table will receive a subscription to Bluff Magazine and Scott Ian UB swag. The Big 4 Festival takes place on April 23rd in Indio, California.
The online poker freeroll is open to any qualifying online poker player in the continental United States, 18 years of age and over. To qualify for the freeroll, online poker players must enter bonus code THEBIG4 when making a minimum deposit of $10 to UB.com between February 25th and March 25th; then they will be automatically registered to play on the day of the event.
Thanks to Team UB pro and Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, UB.com has become the online poker home of choice for countless heavy metal fans. The online poker site that’s home to some of the world’s top pros including Prahlad Friedman, Joe Sebok and Eric Baldwin has become synonymous with heavy metal to many Anthrax fans thanks to a recent promotion that saw UB.com sponsor the Anthrax bus on a nationwide tour. UB.com also gave away free tickets to several stops on the tour through a Facebook promotion.
