Baseball is America’s pastime. Global Poker is one of the most widely available online poker sites in the US. So, it makes sense that Global Poker is sending players on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the MLB All-Star Game in the Global Poker Grand Slam Tournament.
The Grand Slam Tournament is a feeder series that will put you in the running for a terrific prize package. The series is winding down, but there is still a full weekend of great opportunities ahead of us.
How to participate in the Global Poker Grand Slam Tournament
Here’s how it works.
Players can compete in one of the tournaments specific to the promotion. For every tournament they enter, Global Poker will award an entry into the Tournament Series draw.
This draw will award 3 prize packages to the 2019 MLB All-Star Game weekend. Each package contains the following:
- Tickets to the four main events at Progressive Field in Cleveland
- All-Star Celebrity Softball Game – July 7
- All-Star Futures Game (minor league players) – July 7
- Home Run Derby – July 8
- All-Star Game – July 9
- Three nights’ accommodation for the nights of July 7 – 9
- Check-in on July 7
- Check-out on July 10
Bear in mind, there are numerous other attractions during All-Star weekend. The package will also give winners the ability to take part in concerts, commemorative events, and the interactive experience known as Play Ball Park.
As is often the case with Global Poker, there are opportunities to play using either one of their currencies. There are tournaments for both Gold Coins and $weeps Cash.
At present, there are 11 tournaments remaining to play – 6 for $weeps Cash and 5 for Gold Coins. Each tournament will award an entry to the draw to each participant.
Of course, these tournaments are still bona fide tournaments, too. In fact, each one carries a very tasty guarantee, too.
Here’s the schedule for the remaining tournaments:

Other ways to qualify for the Tournament Series draw
There is also another way to throw one’s hat in the ring for one of the All-Star Game packages. In fact, players just have to play in ring games to earn an entry into the Tournament Series draw.
Players must only play 1,500 hands before the end of the promotion on July 23. Hands in both currencies qualify.
So, if it wasn’t clear before, it is possible to win an entry into the prize drawing for Gold Coins only. Even if a player has lost all their $weeps Cash at one time or another, they can still play for a chance to see the best in Major League Baseball.
In short, for baseball fans, Global Poker is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It’s not too late to qualify, so don’t miss out this weekend!
