Euro 2016 Poker Promotions Roundup

Several Poker Sites Are Having Euro 2016 Promos – Here are my Picks

I’m pretty sure that the Euro 2016 football event, which kicks off with France vs Romania on the 10th June, will be bad for the online poker sites. After all, people who would normally be enjoying a game on a weeknight especially, will be at their local bar watching the matches.

This does not stop the poker sites from making the best of the event in terms of publicity – and who can blame them?

Euro 2016 France

Fortunately, this gives players a chance of topping up our bankrolls (at least on those days we are not out watching the games). Below you will find my top picks of 3 Euro 2016 Poker promotions. For me the first one is the best by a clear couple of goals!

Euro 2016 Poker Promotions – Netbet Poker

NetBet are one of the bigger sites on the iPoker Network (they used to be called Poker770). Their promo is called ‘€100,000 Football Fever’. This comes in 2 parts:

First, there are daily challenges (all of which are reasonably easy, for example ‘Play 30 cash game hands and 3 twisters’. You can complete up to 2 per day and will get entry into special €1000 tournaments which run twice daily as a reward. My thought is that on big match days, these could be fairly quiet, giving you a better shot at taking some of that €1000!

Second, there are €15000 and €25000 guaranteed free tournaments (one for half way through, one for after the event) which are for those who have participated in several of the smaller tourneys.

If you have not already tried NetBet Poker, then you can also get a 200% welcome bonus which will quickly clear while you play the missions. This comes with entry into another 10k of depositors freerolls.

Check out now for the details.

Euro 2016 Poker Promotions – Red Kings Poker €5k Challenge

Red Kings are a smaller site, part of the NYX - OnGame Network. They have been around for years, and have a very loyal following – think smaller tournaments and super-soft cash games and you’ll be on the right track.

Their Euro 2016 Promotion is also based on challenges leading to free tournaments. There are only 5, one for each stage of the tournament (group, round of 16, quarters, semis and final). These challenges are easy (play 25 hands on 3 out of 4 days, get dealt premium pairs and so on). The prizes for the tournaments add up to €5k… remember that the fields are smaller for these games.

Check out for the latest offers.

Euro 2016 Poker Promotions – Party Poker Footy Forecast + Second Shot

Euro 2016 Poker Promotions - PartyPoker

Party have come in with 2 side-by-side football promos. The first one is Footy Forecast, and seems to be aimed at players who are more involved with the games. You submit your forecast on the outcomes of the matches – and win prizes which include tournament tokens, free bets and cash if you get it right.

The other promo is for betting fans, if you lose a bet with a shot that hit the woodwork (posts or crossbar), and have bet $5 or more, then Party will give you a consolation prize of a $5.50c tournament token. There are some terms and conditions attached to both of these, though for me they look like generous enough offers!

You can claim your 100% welcome bonus at Party using bonus code SNGPLANET – check out the live event qualifiers while you are at it at
