The UltimateBet Online Poker Room recently started a new poker campaign deemed the “UB Army”, in which poker players battle it out for various rewards and prizes. The newest recruit in the UB Army has arrived by way of a leader board style competition termed the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Tour of Duty ChallengeÃ¢â‚¬Â.
The Tour of Duty Challenge will run each month, starting on the 15th and ending on the 14th of the following month. There are six medalist divisions in the Tour of Duty Challenge at UltimateBet; 3 in cash games and another 3 in tournaments, including SitÃ¢â‚¬â„¢nÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Go and Multi-Table varieties. The 3 divisions for each game type are 5-star, 3-star and 1-star.
Now that weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got our basic info outlined Ã¢â‚¬â€œ hereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s how it works. Members of UltimateBet collect RAI$E Status Points while playing in cash games and/or tournaments. Players must collect a certain number of these points each day, for a specified number of days throughout the month. The more days the player collects enough points, the high division he may qualify for (5-star, 3-star or 1-star).
All players who qualify for a division will be automatically entered into one of six (one for each division) exclusive Freeroll Tournaments to be played on the first Saturday after the 14th of the month. The prize is determined by the division the player has qualified for. The winners of these six Freerolls will move on to the next stage.
UltimateBet will hold two 3-seater tournaments for the six finalists, each with a $5,000 winner-takes-all purse up for grabs. Narrowing it down even further, the two winners will then go heads-up against each other for another $5,000 winner-takes-all prize, plus the chance to go one-on-one with UltimateBet Pro Phil Hellmuth, with as much as $50,000 on the line.
Whether you prefer the comfortable atmosphere of cash games, the fast-paced action of a SitÃ¢â‚¬â„¢nÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Go, or the tedious opposition of a Multi-Table tournament, the Tour of Duty Challenge sounds like a winner Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t hurt that everyone can enter for free 😉
