Poker Mystery Series

Poker players don’t usually love surprises. That surprise one-outer on the river that gives them the bad beat is not fun. The surprise rake increase at their favorite online poker site is not exciting. However, some surprises – like bonuses, prizes, and their own one-outer on the river – are good.

BetOnline and Sportsbetting.ag are running the Poker Mystery Series this week. The two poker sites share a platform to increase player options and prize pools, so they will share this series. The 2.0 version will run from Monday, July 25 through Sunday, July 31.

What is Poker Mystery Series?

Most importantly, the Poker Mystery Series contains 26 tournaments with $500K in event guarantees and mystery prizes. For example, this is what the first day of the series (July 25) will look like:

  • 3:30pm ET (Event 1): $11 buy-in No Limit Hold’em with $5K guaranteed
  • 5:30pm ET (Event 2): $22 buy-in NLHE with $7,500 GTD
  • 7:30pm ET (Event 3): $55 buy-in NLHE with $30K GTD
  • 9:30pm ET (Event 4): $109 buy-in NLHE with $10K GTD

And on the wrap-up day (July 31), which happens to be on the biggest poker day of the week (Sunday), there will be two events:

  • 1pm ET (Event 25): $109 buy-in NLHE Main Event with $200K GTD
  • 4pm ET (Event 26): $22 buy-in NLHE PKO (progressive knockout) with $10K GTD

The Mystery and Extras

That will come in the form of Mystery Gift Boxes. If a player doesn’t cash in a tournament on one day, they will receive a Mystery Gift Box the next day. It will contain a mystery amount of a bonus (tournament tickets, anyone?) to play in other events.

This series will also have a Mystery Series Leaderboard competition. Cashing in the tournaments will award player points for that leaderboard. When the series ends, the top ten players on that list will share $1K in prizes.

Good luck!
