The Year of the Rat is officially over, and Lunar New Year kicks off with the Year of the Ox - symbolising diligence, honesty, reliability, stability, perseverance, power and excellence. Known for not trying to be the centre of attention, those born in the Year of the Ox usually prefer to gaini recognition through their hard work.
And if you put in some hard work on the Natural8 cash game tables, you can earn your share of $10,000 in cash prizes from Feb 12-26. This Lucky 8s promotion is available exclusively for players in Asia’s biggest online poker room, and is awarded on top of all the other exciting monthly promotions.
During this promotion period, players get points for any pocket 8s they get. Points are accumulated over these eight tiers, which will then earn players cash prizes:
Four different cash game variants count towards earning points: Hold’em, Short Deck, Rush & Cash (Hold’em) and All-In or Fold (Hold’em).
There are nine different limits for regular Hold’em, from as low as $0.01/$0.02 all the way up to $5/$10. Short Deck players can look forward to the seven different limits in which points can be earned. This starts at just $0.02/A$0.02, all the way up to $2/A$2.
The highest Rush & Cash (Hold’em) limit to award points is $1/$2, with a total of seven different limits eligible in the chase for extra cash prizes. Last but not least, there are a total of eight different stakes for All-In or Fold (Hold’em) - with limits ranging from $0.05/$0.10 up to $10/$20.
Each of the eight tiers also has a specific number of maximum winners. The first five tiers in regular Hold’em, Short Deck and Rush & Cash (Hold’em) are capped at 4,000, while the three highest tiers will award prizes for up to 1,000 winners.
For All-In or Fold (Hold’em), the first six tiers will pay out to a maximum of 4,000 winners while the two highest tiers will feature a maximum of 1,000 winners.
Players can earn up to 10 points for each hand of pocket eights:
Hold’em / Short Deck / Rush & Cash (Hold’em)
All-In or Fold (Hold’em)
There is no need to claim prizes, as they will be credited instantly to your account once the required points for each tier have been met. You can go for the highest prize for one limit or attempt to play on different limits in order to claim more prizes. Each eligible blind level represents its own chase.
If you want to check out how many points you’ve already accumulated, head on over to the Natural8 Promotion Page. You’ll be able to see how many players have already unlocked prizes for each tier and what your next prize will be.
The chase for up to $10,000 in cash prizes awaits. But hurry, as this exciting promo only runs from February 12 to 26!
