Leaderboards, races, lotteries, series – a traditional selection of promotions in one article. And don’t look anywhere else.
How did the poker world remember May 2021?
- PokerKing hosts the second-ever $ 2,650 The Venom in PKO format, and it was bigger and better than the previous one.
- WPN hosts PKOSS series… And everything would be fine if the servers did not fly on the second game day. The network paid out the ICM prize money to the players, but the players were not happy.
- BestPoker has closed… Entain, the owner of partypoker, bought out Enlabs (which included Bestpoker and Optibet) and decided to close the rooms. July 31st was the last working day. But the rooms promised return.
- Players have changed their nicknames at partypoker… Jans “Graftekkel” Arends seems to have outdone everyone in neiminge.
- Scandal of the month – a story with a teamplayer ban on Vbet… A group of players was banned after complaints on suspicion of teamplay, but due to a software bug in the network, the guys were able to return to the tables again. Commentary from the head of the network.
What promotions have poker rooms prepared for players in June?
Summer is traditionally off-season in poker. Against the background of April and May, shares in June do not look so attractive and juicy. Partypoker, GGPOKEROK and RedStar will have regular promotions, Pokerdom has returned to the weekly race for its daily tournament players after the break, and 888poker has added weekly Sunday events with original prizes.
partypoker: World Cup of Cards and regular daily races
New episode at partypoker in June. Usually the World Cup of Cards is held live in Canada, but this was the first time it was moved over virtual cloth.

GGPOKEROK: main races and leaderboards remain unchanged
In June, GGPOKEROK will give out $ 800K less in shares than in May. But this is only due to the fact that June is 1 day shorter than May. The room also announced a new $ 45K weekly promotion, but there are no details yet. As soon as they appear, we’ll update the post.
