888 Launches on Ontario; Major Tournaments Sport Overlays


Poker players in Ontario, Canada, can play at 888poker after the long-running online poker site launched in the Canadian province. All 888 brands, including poker, sports, and casino are available to Ontarians with immediate effect.

888poker is up and running in Ontario, using the site’s revamped mobile poker app. Ontarians playing at 888poker can enjoy a real-life poker experience, receive gift drops while they play, in addition to competing in CAD$5,000 worth of freeroll tournaments daily and $10,000 on Sunday.

The 24/7 Freeroll Festival is designed to celebrate 888poker coming to Ontario. The Freebie Freerolls are open to every Ontarian poker player and require no tickets. Look out for the exciting gift drops for tickets to The Funky Freeroll, or take a shot on the Winner Spinner if you want to enter The Fabulous Freeroll. These freerolls are a great way to build a bankroll on the new poker site.

Another fantastic opening promotion is the Early Bird Rakeback offer. Simply register for tournaments before they shuffle up and deal, and 888poker awards you 50% rakeback on the tournaments’ fees!

Major Overlays on the New 888poker Ontario App

Three of 888poker Ontario’s value-packed tournaments are currently overlaying on their ambitious guarantees as players get to grips with their new surroundings.

For example, the $10,000 guaranteed PKO Rumble, a $109 buy-in affair, drew in only 36 entries, resulting in a $6,400 overlay for the players to enjoy. The $55 buy-in Big Shot, a tournament with $3,000 guaranteed, overlaid by $2,900 and paid its champion $1,500, while the $215 buy-in Big Shot missed its $4,000 guarantee by $2,800 and awarded a chunky $4,000 to the winner!

888poker expects these overlays will not continue forever, so strike while the iron is hot and grab yourself some additional value.
