Just when you thought it was safe to go back online, along come our maverick friends from Ireland to give us a bit of a shock! They might be unorthodox to look at but the team at Paddy Power Poker know how to throw a party that is just a little bit off the trodden path.
In case anyone has forgotten, Paddy Power Poker wish to remind us that the season of Hallowe'en is upon us. To celebrate the forthcoming horrors, they have spirited a bundle of guaranteed cash onto the poker tables for everyone to win in special tournaments in the week leading up to the day itself. Then, on Tuesday, 31st October, we are invited to open our eyes and face the prospect of an All-Day fest of poker action with several unspeakable guaranteed tournaments - including a freeroll with a $12,500 Las Vegas package on offer, and more besides!
The "more besides" includes an all-day-long Ghastly Hand Promo that will be lurking in the shadows waiting for victims. You will win $100 every time you showdown the winning hand while holding the 7 of spades and the 2 of hearts. Aaaaargghhh!
It's no good, we can't go on any longer. The best we can do is show you the full uncensored list of treats on offer at Hallowe'en. Better to sample the treats than suffer the consequences of a nasty trick. All times are GMT (ie, after the clocks go back)
Hopefully there is enough here to keep your hair standing on end in trepidation or excitement. Now, where is my DVD of The Wicker Man…………?
