Wednesday 29th June 2011
Online poker site 888Poker.com has launched a special promotion that is giving players the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of owning a share in a thoroughbred racehorse in partnership with legendary Australian cricketer Shane Warne.
The special Racing Syndicate Tournament Series will see 888Poker.com award 19 shares valued at Ł3,000 each for a five percent stake in a horse trained by Walter Swinburn Racing.
Warne, who serves as a brand ambassador for 888Poker.com, has purchased the first five percent share and online poker players will be able to grab the remaining stakes by taking down one of 19 weekly $220 buy-in tournaments set to take place on Thursday evenings at 8.05pm London time.
Online poker players can also qualify for the weekly events for as little as $1.35 via 888Poker.comâ€™s daily Racing Syndicate Step Tournaments while eventual winners are set to receive regular updates on their horse alongside exclusive access to owner areas at races and invitations to private events hosted by leading syndicate operator Circuit Racing.
â€śThis is a great opportunity that 888Poker.com is giving its members,â€ť said Warne.
â€śOwning your own racehorse is a real thrill and I am excited to have the chance to be part of it.â€ť
