Let’s start with the good stuff… Could you give an example of a user who has made a big profit in a short time?
Several players have won the “Explosive Sunday” jackpot, achieving a win of more than €1,000. This is: in a tournament, the same day, in 4 hours, you get €1,000.
What differences exist between online poker and live poker?
The main difference is that in online poker you can play from the sofa at home and you are not physically in contact with the players. You can only communicate with them through chat. On the other hand, in a live tournament, you can see the strategy of your rivals in a more direct way: observing them, analyzing their reactions, interacting with them, etc. Beginners often use the online method to get into the world of poker and from there they make the jump to live tournaments.
Why play Poker with online casino?
Apart from the general promotions of the iPoker network, we have private tournaments that the player can only find at Sportium. For example, the Bounty tournament by Santi Cañizares stands out every Thursday, in which players can interact with him. We also have live tournament satellites to qualify for our monthly tournaments at Cirsa group casinos. Finally, we offer special promotions such as the Rake Race that we will do for Christmas.
How has your experience been with Santi Cañizares in our tournaments?
Personally, I did not know him until last July, although I had spoken on the phone and whatsapp with him. I was surprised because he is a very accessible and close person. I had to do an interview with him and everything was great. On the other hand, in our tournaments he is also very active with our players. In face-to-face sessions, chat with them and in online sessions, interact via chat.
