Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Once Said: The Worst Sign That A New Business Is Failing Is There Are Too Many Promotions.

If You Look Closely At The Poker Business, You’ll Agree 99% Of The Time. Online Gambling (UIGEA) Will Be Passed In 2006 As A Lawless Period. Of Online Poker Most Of The Marketing Teams At These Websites Have Been Lost For Years.

Promotions Go Beyond Spending Money To Build A Brand. It Pays Too Much Superfluous, Bizarre, Greedy, And So Tempting That Online Poker Sites Go Out Of Their Way To Attract New Players. Or Make The UFABET Name Of The Site Known

Let’s See Clearly Which Promotions And Campaigns Are The Strangest, Craziest Or Unbelievable. That Various Online Poker Sites Have Been Using Over The Years, How Is It?

Online Poker

1. Someone Tried To Take A Monkey To Compete In The Main Event.

Sounds Like A Joke. But Someone Who Was 100% Determined To Take A Monkey To The Main Event Back In 2006.

That Guy Was “Pokershare” And That Monkey Was Named “Mike”

. I Don’t Know Why) Teach Mikey Basic Skills Like Getting All-In And Sitting At The Table.

Surprisingly, There Was An Outcry From Many Players Who Didn’t Want To Go Broke Because Of Monkeys. (If The All-In Idiot Plays Badly Isn’t It The Best Part?)

But The Funniest Part Is That Monkey Is Not Allowed To Play

In The WSOP. Only Humans Are Allowed To Play.

So Don’t Go Thinking Pranks. Will Bring A Cat To Compete Next Year?

2.WSOP Really Shoots Money In The Air

This One Is Relatively New. In 2014, The WSOP Used An Air Cannon To Shoot Money Into The Amazon Room
. “Ten Thousand” And In Dollars.

It Was An Odd Promotion Compared To The Wealthy Patrons Of The Rio Hotel (Las Vegas, Where The Games Were Played That Year), Who Weren’t Thrilled Or Wowed By The Idea Of ​​Dropping $3 On The Floor.

3. Play Poker To Win. Might Get Mike Tyson’s House.

This Is Freaking Weird.

British Self-Made Millionaire Dominic Marocco Bought Mike Tyson’s House For $4 Million In 2004 And Decided To Make It A Freeroll Prize Against Everyone. Including Mike Tyson Himself

, Marocco Plans To Do A Reality Show About The House. Hundreds Of Players Will Participate In Filming At The Mansion.

The Race Will Be Cut Down To Two Players, Who Will Travel To The Mansion To Compete Against Marocco And Tyson In A Four-Man Table.

Winner Takes Home As For Marocco, He Just Kept The House As Before. In Mike Tyson’s Case, He’ll Get His House Back.

No One Mentioned Whether The Show Was A Success Or Not. And No One Has Ever Seen One.

However, Mike Tyson Actually Competed In The Ante Up For Africa In 2009.

4.Swank Poker Uses Sex With Poker.

They Actually Sold Sex. But Still Not Good Enough.

Swank Poker Is A Very Short-Lived Site. Created By Exchanging Frequent Play Points For Sex Or Sex-Related Products

The Most Expensive One Is Being An AV Director And Actress With 1 Swank Girls

And Here Is A Rough List . Things You Can Redeem With Points From Swank Poker

– Condoms For A Year 4,000 Points
– 1,000 Minutes Of Free Movies On The Web 4,500 Points
– One Night At The “Babylon Nightclub” In Vienna, Austria 75,000 Points
– 1 Year VIP Membership At The “Green Door Sex Club,” Las Vegas, 80,000 Pts
– 1 Hardcore Scene With The Swank Girl You Directed. 100,000 Pts

. Exchange Something Hard To Collect Points The Fewer People Who Access The Website, The More Difficult It Is To Enter.

But I Doubt That Will Anyone Dare To Tell Others? Do You Think Playing At A Website Like This?

5. Party Poker Gave Paris Hilton $200,000 For Free

Paris Hilton Exploded In The Mid-2000s And Made The Headlines Of Many Books. Simply Put, All The Media At That Time Had Their Eyes On Her.

She’s Also (A Little) Devoted To Poker, And It’s Rumored She Once Lost A $200,000 Bentley At A Poker Game, Is That

True? It’s A Bit Strange, Because Poker Players Don’t Usually Bet On Motor Vehicles. (It’s Not A Bit Of A Movie. (Not Our House Either.)

Anyway, Party Poker Offered Hilton A Freeroll. If She Wins, She’ll Get Her Bentley Back (Oh, What’s The Rumour) If She Beats Mike Sexton In Person,

But As Far As We Know This Battle (Whoops.) Honestly

, Hilton Wasn’t Very Much Into The Poker World,

Like When Clonie Gowen Challenged Her To A $100,000 Tournament Personally, She Didn’t.
Although She Herself Has Been Invited And Competed In The WPT And She Has Only Competed In A Few Invitational Tournaments.
