£4000 FREE ROLL!!!

on 2011-10-25, 03:50
Gala Birmingham are proud to announce a £4000 monthly freeroll.

To qualify for a seat in this huge give away all you have to do is play 15 tournaments or pay 15 sessions on a cash table or any combination of the two and you get yourself a seat with a 15k starting stack with a guaranteed £4000 prize pool and a £1500 first prize.

The period for qualification is a calender month starting 1st November onwards with the freeroll itself taking place on the first Sunday of the following month.

What's more is that if you play more than the 15 sessions or tournaments you will recieve extra starting chips in the freeroll.

This freeroll is only open to players at Gala Birmingham, all tournaments and cash games must be played at Gala Birmingham and the freeroll itself... you guessed it will be at Gala Birmingham.

With seven games a week, seven unconditional guarantees amounting to £10,000+ guaranteed by the casino every week plus a £4000 monthly freeroll I don't think you can get better value than at 84 Hill street.

Free Roll Play off date changed

on 2012-04-03, 21:35
Due to popular demand and to avoid clashes across the midlands the £4000 freeroll play off has been changed to the first Monday of every month.

The past two have had 52 and 57 players playing for £4000 free money!

Best value in town!

Don't know if this league is still going but just to give you a little heads up - had a similar league, got cancelled because of this;

From the LCCP;

Social responsibility code provision

If a licensee makes available to any customer or potential customer any incentive or reward
scheme or other arrangement under which the customer may receive money, goods, services or
any other advantage (including the discharge in whole or in part of any liability of his) (‘the
benefit’) the scheme must be designed to operate, and be operated, in such a way that:

a) the circumstances in which, and conditions subject to which, the benefit is available are
clearly set out and readily accessible to the customers to whom it is offered;

b) neither the receipt nor the value or amount of the benefit is:
(i) dependent on the customer gambling for a pre-determined length of time or with a predetermined
frequency; or

(ii) altered or increased if the qualifying activity or spend is reached within a shorter time than the whole
period over which the benefit is offered;

I argued regarding the word gambling and got vito'ed lol

Interesting. Usual league finals are dependent solely on points gained from tournament performance, but the cash sessions counting put a slightly different spin on it i suppse. Hope Mike or Jon be be along soon to comment ..... Very Happy

It fell down on 2 counts tbh Dave.
Predetermined frequency was regarding tournies
Predetermined length of time was regarding cash

A few tweaks in wording and criteria and all was good.

Unfortunately it is the cash players that sustain the cardroom, therefore you want to reward them. But how else are you supposed to reward cash game players as it is all time based (monitoring rake is nigh on impossible) DTD's cash game promotions and final table promotions were more than likely non conforming too. A cash game league seems the way forward but a hell of a lot of work.

Here's to Casino Compliance!!!

on 2012-06-15, 02:03
Yes, our free roll is still going great guns! We are into our seventh month and have had 62 qualifiers for the last two!

Thanks to having a massively powerfull compliance manager for Gala, this free roll is legal and, as all casino employees know, all things have to go through compliance!

As long as there is no mention of TIME spent on a cash table and only sessions paid then it's all good. A player can pay a session fee and not play a full hour or even a hand!

With re-entries available then it also covers the frequency of competition's as a re-entry gains you another point. With the combination of tourney and cash sessions a player could (and has) qualify in one day or could spread it over any number of visits.

A full list of T's & C's are available for all to see on the card room notice board!

Nice one Jon, Mine must have been cancelled as we did time logged on a table as we take rake not sessions, and also it was 1 point for cardroom visit not entry ...... I live and learn lol. I know DTD's old cash game bonus was also done on time played cuz that's how i based my league :/

Hope Grosvenor don't spoil your cardroom btw, looks like you have a good set up there.
