Poker players and soccer fans from bwin are now competing over the chance to meet and train with the stars of Real Madrid. Through a series of daily freerolls and satellites, users will have the opportunity to share the field with some of the finest players on the European soccer scene. Winners will also receive cash prizes, custom gear, and the chance to bring a guest along for the ride.
Right now, bwin is offering daily satellites into the finals for $1. These run at various times throughout the day, and will net the winner a chance to play for one of the promotion’s two prize packages.
Players seeking a cheaper route should be on the lookout for bwin’s Meet and Train with Real Madrid Freerolls, which run daily at 19:00 GMT+1. From now until January 23, each of these tournaments will hand out five tickets to the final and 25 tickets for the aforementioned $1 qualifiers.
Each of these paths lead to the same destination — a pair of tournaments hosted by bwin. For those seeking the most direct means of entry, seats can be had in the finals for $25. The first of these two finals runs today at 21:00 GMT+1, according to bwin. Those unable to make it into this initial offering can mark their calenders for a week from now, when the second event kicks off on 1/24 at the same time of day. Each tournament will feature a pair of prizes to the winner. The first, of course, will be the standard cash reward from the prize pool. Bwin has stated that this cash should be used toward travel expenses, allowing the two winners to collect the second part of the prize — the opportunity to meet and train with the Real Madrid players.
Though no specific time has been set for the actual meeting, bwin has stated that the event itself would take place sometime in early February. Winners, they say, will be notified well in advance of the chosen date.
