Global Poker Christmas Drop Offers Chance At Some Big Holiday Cash

Global Poker has gotten into the holiday spirit with numerous promotions and tournaments throughout December. The U.S. and Canada-friendly site is offering players plenty of goodies with big tournaments but also plenty of promotions available throughout the month via its email newsletter and special offers on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

The Christmas Drop offers a chance to play in either of two series – one for Gold Coins and one for $weeps Cash, which is awarded for the purchase of Gold Coins and in can be earned in promotional tournaments. $weeps Cash, unlike Gold Coins, can be redeemed for cash.

As part of the fun, players can expect freerolls, special-edition avatars, time-limited promotions, photo competitions, and huge guarantees for Gold Coin and $weeps Cash games and tournaments. That includes numerous tournaments in the $11 to $33 range with some nice guarantees.

An example of the action is a $33 Christmas Turbo tournament on Dec. 21 featuring a SC$7,000 guarantee. An $11 event on Dec. 19 offers a prize pool of SC$3,000. PLO fans will enjoy a $22 tournament on Dec. 28 with a SC$4,500 guarantee.
