How to play The Venom for free
Over the next three weeks, half of the PokerKing tournament lobby will be inundated with satellites at The Venom. The ways to qualify for the $ 2,650 tournament are a carriage and a small cart. And if you’ve played The Venom before, then all the methods are already familiar to you.
Venom Blitz Cyclones Steps – special tournaments in the Blitz Poker format (fast poker). Your goal in them is to get 5000 chips and go to the next level (there are 9 of them). You can start from any level, the cost of the first is $ 0.11, and the last one is $ 880. If you pass the ninth level, you will receive a ticket for $ 2650. In the lobby you can find freerolls for steps 1 to 5.
Venom On Demand Steps – a similar ladder of 9 levels, but in the format of classic On Demand tournaments. Starting July 19, freerolls with tickets to the first level at $ 0.11 will begin at PokerKing.
Venom On Demand Skips refers to the last ladder, but consists of five steps instead of nine.
Venom Fever – promotional mega satellites, where you can get either directly or through steps / skips / cyclones / special sats. They are already giving away direct tickets to the target tournament. According to WPN, the total guarantee will be 886 tickets at $ 2,650.
Updating software at PokerKing
Before the large-scale tournament, the poker room managed to update the game client. Update list:
• Inherited bankroll – the ability to transfer money from your account to a third party in the event of a sudden death.
• New sounds when you win the pot or open a new Blitz table (fast poker). Also, when a jackpot is dropped in special Sit & Go tournaments, the sound will play even if the table is minimized.
• Blitz Poker – there was an option to disable animations. Buy-in size will be saved when opening a new table (automatically filled in the dialog box)
• Multi-day tournaments – if the player passes in Day 2, then he loses the opportunity to play in other starting flights
• Additional security measures will be applied to users who are found to have prohibited programs while playing
