When it comes to April Fools Day, Global Poker is not joking around.

On Sunday, which is both April 1 and Easter, the legal online poker room is offering US, Canadian, and Australian players a chance to win a piece of a guaranteed prize pool of SC$200,000. The name of the event is Global Poker Madness.

Global Poker Madness is just days away. Mark your calendars, avoid the pranksters, and don’t miss out.

Main Event is SC$540 buy-in

All month, Global Poker ran satellites into the SC$540 event. These satellites featured buy-ins as small as SC$1.50. With that in mind, there will be a whole range of bankrolls taking part in the site’s most massive tournament yet.

There are still opportunities to get in the tournament on the cheap. These SC$1.50 and SC$11 tournaments are still running daily. Additionally, there are few mega satellites with some guaranteed seats running throughout the weekend.

Here are the remaining SC$77 satellites on the site leading up to the Main Event:

  • Saturday, March 31 at 4:20 p.m. ET – SC$77 buy-in with 20 seats guaranteed
  • Sunday, April 1 at 3:20 p.m. ET – SC$77 buy-in Turbo event with 10 seats guaranteed

The Global Poker Madness Main Event gets underway at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Global Poker remains a rare legal option for CA players

There is little hope for online poker passing in California in the near future. However, players can turn to Global Poker as an option to play.

The site utilizes sweepstakes offers for real money play using its own forms of currency, SweepsCoin and GoldCoins. Players can purchase these coins via Paypal. Then, using these currencies, they can play in both cash games and tournaments on the site. If they want to cash out, they can do so via Paypal, which is where they can collect their winnings in the form of US dollars.

This is the largest guarantee for the relatively new online poker site. However, with each event, Global Poker hits its benchmark and ups the stakes. So, now is the time to get in on the game and run up your Global Poker account before the next big guarantee event goes on the calendar.
