Global poker fans with a yen for something really different in the way of a poker playing break are being offered qualifying satellites for a major South African event at iPoker network websites like Titan Poker.com until August 23rd.
Situated in southern Africa in close proximity to wild game and scenic view venues, the fantasy Lost Palace surroundings of Sun City in the African bush are famous on the international tourism circuit and host the Sun City Million Dollar Poker Tournament each year.
This year's prize pool in the premier poker tournament, which takes place from September 1 through September 8, is up to US$1.5 million.
Players on the network who are successful in winning on the satellites – where buy-ins as low as $1 are available – can look forward to all-inclusive packages worth an estimated $10 500 including the $3 000 buy-in to the Main Event and travel costs. Once in Africa, the excitement of playing in a major world class poker event can be enhanced by visiting some of the most unusual and spectacular tourist spots on the planet.
In addition to participating in the Sun City Million Dollar Poker Main Event, satellite winners are promised luxurious benefits such as accommodation for seven nights at the Palace of the Lost City Hotel. VIP transfers from Johannesburg to the Lost Palace hotel are also included, along with a round of golf on a scenic golf course, a choice between a safari game drive or a hot air balloon ride and free entry to the "Let There Be Rock" concert.
