Party Poker know that by now you have already gone back on your decision to not watch the European Championships starting this weekend. That is why the card room has a new promo in conjunction with their sports betting service, Partybets. The home nations not being in the finals may be a bitter pill to swallow, but €1 million for spending just 10 PartyPoints might take the edge off just a little.
That's because Partybets are challenging punters to predict the outcome of the GROUP MATCHES ONLY of Euro 2008 and will give away a massive €1 million to anybody who can do so. All poker players have to do is earn 10 PartyPoints on Party Poker (just a few orbits at the cash tables) to get this free, million Euro bet.
You have to predict the correct winners and draws of each game in every group game of the tournament to win the prize. You thankfully don't have to predict the correct score, just the outcome. Good luck picking the winner out of the group of death that contains Holland, Italy and France, but after that the rest will seem like a breeze. Submit your entries by the 7th of June and earn your points by the 18th of June to be eligible for this competition.
Not only that, there is also another €15,000 in free money on the table during the footy. You get three points for every correct score you predict and one point for every correct result. The 350th top scores at the end of the group stages will be in line for a prize out of the €15,000 prize pool, the higher your finish, the more you win.
Any first time user to PartyBets.com can also take advantage of another fantastic Euro 2008 offer with a replica shirt giveaway. Once signed up, punters who place an outright bet of €55 or more on the winner of the competition can claim a team shirt of their choice. If all this wasn't enough, there is a whole host of promotions and cashbacks that will be available on various matches throughout the tournament that will be open to all PartyBets.com users.
A Party Poker spokesman said, "With the cost of entry being just 10 PartyPoints it doesn't take too many raked hands to have a go at predicting the outcomes of matches in Euro 2008. Remember this is the outcome of the group stage matches only, not correct scores!"
