There are several promotions on the slate for February 2013 at both Sky Poker and Sky Vegas, the online casino, including televised Sky Poker Games and the next £30K Super Roller Tournament at Sky Poker, and the ongoing Retweet to Win and Stakeback offers at Sky Vegas.

Sky Poker brings the world of poker and the world of sports together with Sky Poker Cash Games televised on Sky Poker TV and Sky Sports HD.

It all started earlier this month, on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, when athletes Mick Fitzgerald, James Haskell, Wayne Mardle, Matt Le Tissier, Jimmy White, and Norman Whiteside all sat down at the poker felt to face off against one another and some of the UK’s finest poker players in a cash game of Texas Hold’em. The action continues with a fresh table of new and returning players from the worlds of poker and sports on:

•    Tuesdays, February 12 and 19 at 10 pm on Sky Sports 3;
•    Tuesday, February 26 at 11 pm on Sky Sports 2;
•    Tuesday, March 5 at 10:30 pm on Sky Sports 3;
•    Tuesday, March 12 at 10:45 pm on Sky Sports 2

These matches will then be rebroadcast on Sky Poker TV on Mondays starting February 18th.

The Sky Poker Super Roller Tournament takes place on the last Sunday of every month, with the next one on February 24 at 8 pm. Players start out with 10,000 in chips and the blinds go up every 15 minutes. It’s a £110 buy-in event with a £30K prize pool. But players can avoid this buy-in by winning their seat in the event through a satellite tournament.

Satellite buy-ins start as low as just £5.30 for daily satellite tournaments awarding seats in a nightly semi-final satellite tournament taking place at 8:30 pm each night. One player in five from the Super Roller Satellite will win a seat in the semi final, and one in five players from the Super Roller Semi Final event will win a seat in the £30K Super Roller event.

Stay tuned as well for the impending announcement of The 2013 Sky Poker Tour, taking place later this year at multiple venues around the UK and Europe. Dates have yet to be announced by several of the venues have already been chosen, including the venue for the grand final event, those being: Aspers Newcastle; Sporting Emporium, Dublin; Broadway, Birmingham; Aspers, Stratford in London; and Dusk Till Dawn for the Grand Final.

Meanwhile, over at Sky Vegas, the Retweet to Win promotion offers players a £5 bonus for following these simple steps:

1.    Go to the Sky Vegas Twitter page and Follow it.
2.    Watch your Twitter feed for a tweet from “@sky vegas” that begins with “RT to win…”
3.    Retweet that tweet on your own Twitter page.

Then, at the promotion’s end (to be announced by a Tweet, of course) Sky Vegas will select a number of those who successfully completed those steps to grant a £5 bonus award.

Awards will be given as casino tokens that can only be used on select games on Sky Vegas.
