As Christmas approaches, Betfair is giving all Man Utd fans something else to get excited about – a free to enter poker tournament with tickets to an Old Trafford fixture for the winner and a signed United shirt for the runner-up.
Entrants go head-to-head with other Reds fans, making the winner the finest poker playing United fan – unofficially at least!
The top prize is two seats at Old Trafford for the visit of Portsmouth on February 6 while the runner-up will receive a signed United shirt. The third placed card sharp lands a $100 bet with Betfair with fourth and fifth taking free bets to the value of $50 and $25 respectively. The next five entrants win a free $10 bet.
The tournament takes place on Wednesday December 16, and entry is simple – there are just a few easy instructions to follow:
- Competition entrants must be over 18 and holders of a Betfair account.
- Once that’s done download the Betfair Poker Room and create your poker alias before midnight on Sunday December 13.
- On Wednesday night get down to the tournament lobby and register for the ‘Man United Freeroll’ in the Tourney Lobby. Get all that done before 7:45 pm on Wednesday December 16 and start playing when the tourney begins at 8pm GMT.
The tickets, shirt or free bets could be yours.
For those who have never played before or consider themselves novices a full guide to poker is available on Betfair Poker.
