What is the Viva Las Vegas Leagues Promotion?

From Monday 6th March - Sunday 9th April 2017 we are giving Sky Poker players the chance to win trip to Las Vegas worth £4,000. This includes flights, hotel accommodation and not forgetting a buy-in into a side event that's part of the world's most famous poker festival.

There is a league for both Cash and Sit & Go's, and you must rack up points to win the league and in turn bag a package!

There are 12 packages up for grabs in total.

1 will be won each week by winning a Cash league (4 total)

1 will be won each week by winning a Sit & Go league (4 total)

But wait, that's only 8 we hear you cry! 

That's because we're giving you a second chance. The prize is so amazing that we're giving you more chances to win it. Four more packages can be won from our 2nd Chance Viva Las Vegas freerolls.

Players who finish 2nd-100th in either the Cash or Sit & Go league, will automatically be entered into the corresponding 2nd Chance Freeroll. Freerolls take place the following Sunday after the week ends. Win the 2nd Chance Freeroll and you win a package too!

So even if you don't win the league outright, if you've placed 2nd-100th in either league, you have another chance of bagging that incredible prize.

More information on the 2nd Chance Freerolls can be found below, under the dropdown named 'How can I play in a 2nd Chance Freeroll?' 

Each league runs for a week and you can try each one as many times as you like. League dates run from:

Q. What happens if I can't make a 2nd Chance Freeroll date?

Unfortunately there will be no other alternative arrangements made. You must be able to take part in the freeroll date provided. You cannot request to be entered into another week's freeroll. 

Q. Are there entry requirements for the freerolls?

No, there is no buy-in amount or minimum Poker Point requirement to enter. You must however, have finished in the top 99 (top 100 excluding 1st) of either the Cash/SNG league for the corresponding week.

Q. If I have already won a Viva Las Vegas package, can I play in a 2nd Chance Freeroll?

No, only the person who won entry into the freeroll can play. Players cannot request to transfer their seat to another player. 

Q. Where can I find the 2nd Chance Freerolls?

They will be branded 'VLV 2nd Chance FR' in the lobby. However, when you finish in the top 100, you will automatically be entered to play. You will not need to register, you simply need to log in and the table will automatically appear.

Q. Can other players enter the 2nd Chance Freeroll too?

No, only the top 100 players in either the Cash or Sit & Go league will be eligible for entry. 

Q. What happens if I place in the top 100 for both leagues, how many starting chips would I get?

If you finish in the top 100 of both leagues, your starting chips will be added together reflective of the positions you finish to determine your total starting stack.

3. Each player can only win one Viva Las Vegas Side Package. Any player who wins more than one Package will not be awarded with any alterative cash or prize in any format. This includes Packages that are won via Cash Leagues, Sit and Go Leagues, satellites, freerolls or any other means. The relevant additional prize will be awarded to the player who accrued the second highest number of League Points for Cash and Sit and Go Leagues or the player who finished in second place in the 2nd Chance freeroll in a Promotional Week.

4. As a condition of receiving their prize, winners must use the prize monies awarded for the purposes of arranging travel to Las Vegas and participating in all designated activities and events, and not sell or transfer their Viva Las Vegas package to any third party. Winners are responsible for the payment of any applicable tax, if any, due on winning the Prize, and/or any prize money won by participating in the Event.

5. The Viva Las Vegas Leagues Promotion will run from 6th March at 00:00:01 until 2nd April at 23:59:59. One winner will be selected per Promotional Week from each of the Cash Weekly Leagues and Sit and Go Weekly Leagues. The Promotional Weeks run as follows:

· 6th March - 12th March 2017
· 13th March - 19th March 2017
· 20th March - 26th March 2017
· 27th March - 2nd April 2017

6. The Cash League is determined by the highest number of Poker Points earned during each day playing Cash Poker, which in turn determines the amount of League Points awarded each day. The Sit & Go League is determined by the highest number of Poker Points earned during each day playing Single Table Tournaments (Sit & Go's), which in turn determines the amount of League Points awarded each day. Poker Points are awarded at the end of a session. For a player's Points to be added to the current day's promotion, you must 'stand up' from the Cash Poker table before midnight. Otherwise, the Poker Points earned in that session will automatically be carried over to the next day. Days will run from 00:00:01 of the said start date to 23:59:59, giving players 24 hours to earn Poker Points. To earn League Points players must be the highest Poker Point earner in a 24 hour period. Poker Points are earned by playing any real money game. In this instance for Poker Points to count towards the Cash League, they must be earned at Cash tables. For Poker Points to count towards the Sit & Go League, they must be earned playing Single Table Tournaments (Sit & Go's). League points are awarded as follows:

Daily Rank League Points
1st 50
2nd 45
3rd 40
4th 35
5th 30
6th 25
7th-10th 20
11th-25th 15
26th-50th 10
51st-100th 5

7. In the event of a tie in positions second and below the dead heat rule will apply. All players who finish a Promotional Week on the same rank, by earning the same number of League Points, will receive an equal share of the total amount of chips for all ranks added together.* For example if players 4,5 and 6 all finish a Promotional Week on 35 League Points they will all get an equal share of 21,500 chips for the 2nd Chance Freeroll, resulting in 7,166 chips each. This is worked out by the chip stacks from all the finishing positions being added together and divided by the number of players who qualify for that position. (E.g. 4th to 6th tied: 8,000 + 7,000 + 6,500 / 3 = 7,166) *If there is a tie for the final position on the leaderboard then all players tied will receive a minmum of 2000 chips for the 2nd Chance Freeroll.

8. In the event of a tie for 1st place across any League during a Promotional Week, the decision to award the prize will go to the player who has earned the most Poker Points in that Promotional Week. We will look at each players' specific amount of Poker Points earned and that person will be awarded the relevant prize.

9. Airport transfers are not included in the package, players must use their allowance given as part of the Package to pay for transfers. Should a player wish to extend their stay at the hotel, they are obliged to pay a further fee, set by the hotel - of which Sky Poker is not affiliated with.
