Real Gaming, the online poker website backed by South Point Casino, is offering some new specials.
Players who reach a silver, gold or platinum tier status will earn guaranteed entry into exclusive tournaments like the Real Rewards Invitational. Those who reach platinum status will earn a guaranteed $2,000, with those at gold receiving $1,000 and silver players will add $500 to their accounts.
Furthermore, a variety of prizes will be given away to players who reach a Tier Score of 100, 300, 750 or 1,500. Scores will be calculated starting with hands that began at midnight on the first of the month and end at 11:59 p.m. on May 31.
The Table Starter promotion allows players to earn extra cash simply by being one of the first three players at a table. At least 50 minutes of play can earn up to $30.
Players can now earn up to $2 in credits each hour at a table for the Sit & Earn promotion, and may be credited for up to six hours of sitting per day.
Real Gaming is extending their special offer and gifting $20 to all new players through May 31. By simply signing up for an account at RealGaming.com, players will receive some extra cash to help them get started. Once the player joins a game, a $20 credit will be posted to the account and players can keep all winnings resulting from the credit.
