Online gambling in Paradise
One online gambling site will send players to a tropical paradise this summer, where they will enjoy the lap of luxury in a beautiful villa—with their poker skills set to decide how long they stay.
Players who do not win at the tables will be booted out, in scenes reminiscent of a reality TV show, with the ultimate aim being to find Bwin a new sponsored player who will get to represent Bwin in some of the world’s biggest poker events.
Hopeful players can qualify online at Bwin poker, where they must qualify for a weekly final from which the winner will head to the island. The method by which players qualify for the online final is set to change each week.
For example, this week’s unusual method of qualification requires a flush on the flop, and a straight on the river—the player must flop a flush, with an opponent then making a straight on the river in order to qualify for the weekly final. The hand must take place in a Texas hold ‘em ring game for real money and use both of a player’s hole cards. The hand must be part of a showdown and win, with at least three players involved in the hand.
Weekly finals will take place each Sunday at 8pm CET, with the winner earning a trip to PokerIsland to stay in the villa with another four qualifiers. The housemates will then compete in a weekly Eviction Tournament to decide who stays and who goes. Two will be evicted, and replaced by two further qualifiers. The winners each week will move on to the PokerIsland final, for a shot at winning a spot on the Bwin poker team.
