PokerRoom Starts a 'Poker Island' TV Deal: Winner gets $100k and Sponsorship!
PokerRoom and PokerNews are getting together to launch the first mainstream Poker Reality Show! You could win a chance to be on the show on location in Ibiza Spain. There are all kinds of great reasons to try and win yourself a trip!
First of all, the qualifiers will be sent to a luxurious and private island in the amazing Ibiza, Spain! This comes with the best concierge around, and a plethora of other perks for the lucky qualifiers! There are countless outdoor activites awaiting, and spa therapy for the less-adventurous. You will be staying in a house with all the other players, so who knows what could happen!
Part of the show will be about taking part in a daily poker challenge. The winners of these challenges will win even more rewards! This really is a paradise! Like great food? Well you'll be in luck, with the 5-star private chef team assembled! You will really get taken care of on this show! Part of your duties if you make it on will be to record daily diaries for air on television like all reality shows. Millions will be able to view this show on tv.pokernews.com, so it should be exciting!
This event kicks off on July 7th, and will last for four months total, so there are lots of chances to get in. There will be a weekly 'booted of the show' event that sends some people home and replces them with new people. This is just like any other reality show and is sure to be a success.
There are two ways to get on this show, which we will describe in detail for you:
