March Marathon promo looks really good

Just got an email about this:

March Marathon

Party rep, can you please clear a couple of things up. First, do you have to play every single day to get the money? Say I play for seven days straight, skip a day, and then play every day for the rest of the month. Would I still get the second highest prize of $300 or $1500, or would I only earn the money for the 7-day tier? And second, is the money awarded each day as you go along or as a lump sum at the end of the month?

Seems good, but terms are vague. Also note, all of them are bonuses - not cash - except for the final one. It says you can check to see the terms of the bonus in your software, but we wont be able to see them until after we are already awarded bonus. They could give us a $300 bonus which would be impossible to clear in 1 week.

I'm sure Party Rep will be happy to forward your question to the appropriate team and get back to us within next few months or so.

Did anyone get an email about this? I just noticed it on the site. Its actually crazy good value if you can play every day. Would be lol if party emails it out to everyone on monday.

Re: March Marathon promo looks really good

Hi Party Rep, thinking of first-time depositing for this promo. If I play all 31 days is that in fact $600 cash that will be credited to my account on March 31st(or soon thereafter) and not have any play through requirements? I see most of the other days are bonuses, it does say $600 cash on March 31st but I want to be sure. Thanks for your time.

Ah yea, I didn't even notice they all said "bonus" except for the last one. Party Rep, please confirm if the top prize of $600/$2500 is paid out immediately as cash or if it needs to be cleared.

Has to be a catch, no way they can afford to pay up this much in promo payouts. What if they suddenty go offline for one of the days? Are we just screwed?

At partypoker, we know those who play hard are working hard too. That’s why we have a new promotion to reward those who grind it out at the cash game poker tables with up to $600 cash.

All you need to do is log-in daily on your computer or on the go and earn 10 points daily as many days as you can.
so... that means if i earn the 10 points on tournaments points does not count?

i don't really play at cash tables

Re: March Marathon promo looks really good

Lady on phone just told me if I play 31 days straight at cash tables,

I will receive a cash bonus of $2500?

Does this make sense

Yeah, anywhere in the software you see "loyalty" (then a number), click on it.

Looks good for cash players with high volume. Sadly SnG regs are stuck with leaderboard dumb promo.

Re: March Marathon promo looks really good

I hope I'm wrong, but it seems extremely likely to me this will end in some extremely pissed of players a month from now.

Could happen many different ways, but Ill go with site crashing/most of NJ not able to log on for 12-24 hours on March 29th during the 100k as my pick.

Hi all,


You can skip days, the total count towards the prize paid after the promotion ends
The money/bonus is awarded at the end of the promotion and they are not stacked
Example: Play 31 days as a VIP and get $2,500 cash only, not all the bonuses along the way

The cash is cash, no play through requirements.
The bonuses are 10 slabs paid at $1 per 8 points earned playing cash games good from April 1 – 14

Re: March Marathon promo looks really good

Damn, I'm really disappointed that I didn't know this promotion was going on until March 2nd.

Anyway here is my question for Collete -
I am bronze right now.
If I earn 50 points daily for 30 days of March will I earn the $300 bonus because because I started at bronze? Or would I earn the $1500 bonus because I became Palladium during the month?

Thanks!

If you start off as a dirty NVIP, thats where you will stay.

All the Official TandC says is you have to "log in, play and earn the minimum points" No mention of how they are earned, so technically you should be able to earn the points in any cash game, tourney, or casino. Just make sure you don't forget to log in first or you might get disqualified.

Most likely whole thing will end in disaster and they will do whatever they want. As long as they put the gambling problem thing at the end, NJDGE is cool.

Re: March Marathon promo looks really good

Also what if by the 25th day or so I become Palladium for the month but I started the month as Silver? Will I still be under the 10 points a day or how does that work?

I'm pretty sure they're going to require the 10 pts be earned at ring games.

I agree, def wouldnt try to earn it any other way.

But would you really be that surprised if April 1 a bunch of people were like wtf is this marathon bonus for I never play cash?

Would be an excellent way to piss off everyone that played more cash than they wanted, as well as everyone would could of got a bigger bonus if they knew.
