Soak up Some Samba in Rio! with PartyPoker
PartyPoker is offering eight lucky poker players the chance to attend the biggest and most colourful street party in the world, The Rio de Janeiro carnival. This unique promotion runs from January 12th to the 18th and players have the opportunity to win an impressive all expense paid trip to Rio.
There are several different ways to be in with a chance of making it to Rio, all based on the Party Points system. Players will earn Party Points as normal from January 12th to the 18th. The more points you receive, the more chance you have of reaching the Rio Final, where you can win the trip of a lifetime. If you earn 20 Party Points in a day, you win a seat to the next day's Rio Carnival tournament, where you can win one of 10 seats for the final on 20th January. If you earn 50 Party Points in a day, you win a seat in the next day's Rio Carnival tournament, where you can win one of 25 seats in the final. Alternatively, if you earn 750 points between the 12th and 18th of January, you get a seat in the final automatically.
The top eight finishers in the final win a package worth $8000, which includes five nights accommodation for two in a four star hotel, two tickets to one night of the famous parade, a professional translator, transfers in a chauffeur-driven limousine and a travel voucher worth $2,200 per couple. The carnival starts on the 2nd February and finishes on the 5th. There is no cash alternative to this prize.
A Party Poker spokesman said: "This is a unique opportunity and a chance in a lifetime. Most poker players know of the Rio Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas, not Rio de Janeiro in Brazil!"
