PartyPoker Introduces Million Dollar Hand

Starting today for the next 11 days, Party Poker will be giving you the chance to win a cool million or even more. Players will get a playing card for every 15 Party Points they accumulate during this time and will receive a prize whenever they build a five card hand. A pair or better gets a guaranteed cash prize; a royal flush gets $1 million. What's more, there is no limit on the number of hands that can be hit so you could (however unlikely) actually walk away with even more than one million dollars.

The prize money per hand looks like this:

Royal flush $1,000,000
Straight flush $5,000
Four of a kind $1,000
Full house $250
Flush $100
Straight $50
Three of a kind $25
Two pair $10
One pair $5

A Party Poker spokesman said: "This is an all encompassing promotion that pays $5 for a pair - right up to $1 million for a royal flush! We have had to insure ourselves against the possibility of multiple royal flushes! All a player has to do is collect points and cards throughout the period."

Pub Poker to get a huge boost

Fosters have launched a huge promotion to encourage more men into UK pubs this week called Game On. The top lager brand will be providing 10,000 venues across the UK with pool and poker tables and also will be backed by TV, radio and online advertising. The UK pub industry has been hit hard recently, with the recession and the smoking ban amongst other things, and now landlords will have the equipment to host free poker nights in an attempt to get the numbers back up.

Foster's marketing manager Gayle Harrison said: "Game On, the biggest and widest-reaching promotion ever run by Foster's, will help licensees cash in on the popularity of a variety of pub games by appealing to a wide range of customers and encouraging them to visit and revisit the pub on a night they would normally stay at home."
