Since we’re without a football game for two weeks and then have to wait two months for March Madness to begin, it’s time to take a look at some top U.S. poker sites to throw a few chips around. Sure No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em peaked in popularity 10 years ago, but there’s still a voracious appetite across the nation to go “All In” on pocket rockets.
There are less than a handful of safe places to play these days, however, one destination has stood strong since the early millennium and kept tables open 24/7, 365 days of the year. Of course, this was all covered in our detailed review of BetOnline Casino which went over their entire operation with a fine-tooth comb, and now there’s something new to get excited about that’ll keep everyone busy until NCAA basketball reaches its boiling point in April.
It’s called Mission Grinders and it’s a weekly opportunity to win free tournament entries for anyone who successfully completes a series of missions during regular cash games. Every Sunday afternoon there’s a $2,000 freeroll for those who finished three or more tasks and starting stacks depend on completion rates, with 3 missions earning 2,500, 4 triggering 5,000, and 5/5 checked off issues 10,000 in chips.
Each week the requirements change a bit but they’re usually based on getting hands in a particular situation, such as a full house or flush on the River, or taking a pair of Jacks to a showdown. Some are much harder though, like getting a flush on the flop twice on a No Limit table or seeing 100 flops in a single cash game – it sounds like “fun mixed with frustration” is definitely on the menu.
Then at the end of the month BOL hosts a $5,000 freeroll for super agents who went above and beyond the call of duty with their successful missions and blew the competition away. These are invite only so just keep playing and hope to get a tap on the shoulder from their virtual pit boss.
So if you’re looking for a nice, warm place to grind this winter, head on over and sign up at the BetOnline Poker Room and take a seat, and spring will be here before you know it. Hopefully it will arrive with warm weather and fatter bankrolls. Good luck!
