888 poker Launches God of the Arena Series, Poker Revenues Decrease

In a little less than ten days, 888 poker will launch the God of the Arena series. The exciting part is that 888 poker, one of the best poker sites, prepared exciting rewards for its players. The guaranteed prize pool for the tournament starting on October 11th is $1,000,000, while the main event buy-in is $55.

The Good of the Arena series will host twelve events. Each day poker players will get a chance to compete at four different events. The buy-in for these events varies. The $15,000 God of the Arena Micro 8-Max event has the lowest buy-in of $5.5. Players looking for higher prizes can join the $100,000 God of the Arena 8-Max event with the buy-in of $320. However, the main event of the tournament with a $1 million GTD will certainly get the most attention from the online poker community.

The poker operator offers its users a chance to qualify for the tournament by participating in a daily challenge. To obtain qualifier tickets, players should enter an MTT or Sit and Go tournament and knock two players out of the tournament. The minimum buy-in amount is $1, and the daily challenge promotion runs until October 13th.

The God of the Arena tournament series could help 888 Holdings boost their poker vertical. Last Thursday, the gaming group published a financial report for the first half of 2018. While the revenues from 888 casino and sports betting products saw increased revenues, 888 poker revenues were down by 28%.

In their efforts to expand 888 poker user base, 888 Holdings also plans on launching a new poker platform called 8 Poker. This project is still in early stages though. Until more details about 888’s next generation poker platform are available, players can join the operator’s God of the Arena series and win their share of the $1 million GTD prize pool.
