PlayersOnline.com hosts unique auction.
Online betting site, PlayersOnly.com, is holding a unique auction where a $12,000 World Series prize package could go for a dollar or less. The popular online casinos, poker, and sports betting site has started taking bids in its World Series Low Bid Auction. The player that manages to make the lowest unique bid for the prize until the close of the auction in June can buy the deluxe travel package for the amount of their winning bid. This package includes airfare, accommodation, and entry to the World Series of Poker.
"A chance to play in the Big One, that's every poker player's dream," said PlayersOnly.com Brand Manager David Anderson. "Vegas… World Series… Talk about the perfect place to 'unleash the player in you'! It'd be great seeing one of our guys at the Final Table!"
"Last month," explained Anderson, "We did a Low Bid Auction for a plasma TV. The winner of that auction ended up getting a $1500 TV for just fifty cents!"
In order to win, players have to make the lowest unique bid. If their bid is unique and no other player gets that target, they get the package. So, for example, if a player bids one penny and no other player bids the same amount, then the $12,000 prize will be their for a cent.
Bids can be placed on the website and via text message (full phone bidding instructions can be found on the site) and any registered player can bid for $1.99 per bid with their first being free. The competition is open to US players only.
