The SC$1million Rattlesnake Open Returns to Global Poker
08 May

It’s back, and its bite is as big as ever – it can only be the Global Poker Rattlesnake Open, with more than SC$1,000,000 guaranteed in cash prizes and another 181,750,000 in the game’s Gold Coins

The 21 days of ‘fangtastic’ action got underway this week with a host of players looking to grab their share of the money.

Running through May 26th, the second edition of the highly-competitive Rattlesnake series has laid out a highly attractive set of prizes, as seen below…

  •  158 Rattlesnake Open II trophies
  • Over SC$1,000,000 guaranteed in REAL CASH PRIZES
  • Over GC181,750,000 guaranteed
  • EXCLUSIVE, money-can’t-buy Global Poker Champion Packs - delivered directly to players
  • REPRESENT Global Poker in a LIVE poker tournament of your choice!

The ‘ridiculously huge’ trophies come as part of a Champions pack sent to the winner of each event, a goodie bag full of exclusive Global Poker merchandise - and there’s an extra bonus for those who share their wins.

The site’s Hometown Heroes promotion rewards tournament winners who capture their victories for posterity by posing with gear and trophies next to their hometown sign or a significant local landmark - $weeps Cash™ (SC$) prizes up for grabs. If you don’t know what $weeps Cash™ is, there’s a quick guide to Global Poker’s unique currency at the end of the article.

Another feature of the Global Poker series is the Tournament of Champions finale, which will see the winners and runner-ups of Rattlesnake Open tournaments engage in battle for a live package worth $5,000, previous winners taking their A-game to Vegas, and more often than not coming home with a big cash prize.

With a burgeoning TwitchTV streaming crew, including Dave thelangolier above as well as Brian thegoldenblazer Frenzel, there will be no shortage of live Rattlesnake poker action for you to follow, but with No-Limit and Fixed-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha as well as No-Limit Crazy Pineapple, the temptation to actually play will be tough to avoid.

Aside from the SC$1million guaranteed Rattlesnake Open, Global Poker offers Ring Games, Sit’n’Gos, normal tournaments and Jackpot Sit’n’Go tournaments, with buy-ins ranging from Micro to High, meaning there’s something to suit everyone’s preferences.

$weeps Cash™

Looking for a way to offer its games to the USA, Global Poker struck upon a unique idea, and here’s how it works:

  • You can play with two currencies, Gold Coins and $weeps Cash.
  • When you buy Gold Coins Global Poker gives you bonus $weeps Cash free of charge.
  • Gold Coins let you play for fun, but switch to $weeps Cash and you can play for real money.
  • Cash out your winnings
