The wait is almost over; the latest Championship series from Global Poker begins Jan. 15.

The American and Canadian poker website and its Sweepstakes model are opening up a full tournament series offering over $1.5 million in cash prizes. The first-ever Grizzly Games boasts 200 events on its schedule, with bigger guarantees than ever before.

Great tournament selection available

Global Poker’s online extravaganza kicks off with a $5,000 Sweeps Cash freeroll.

Players of any membership length are eligible to enter. Registration is already open. Global Poker operates in two forms of currency: Gold Coins and Sweeps Cash.

For every dollar won via Sweeps Cash, a player can cash out for USD or CAD via PayPal. The prize pool of $5,000 Sweeps Cash is free in every sense of the word, no deposit necessary.

From Jan. 15 through Feb. 11, Global Poker will run 120 events under the Grizzly Games banner. Buy-ins start as low as $3.30 and run up to $218 for the SC$50,000 Main Event. This prize pool is one of the largest ever offered on Global Poker and is sure to close in near six-figure territory.

The event calendar lists three games: No Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha, and Fixed Limit Hold’em.

Freerolls across the site

Gold Coin events are also available for those looking to play purely on the fun side.

Grizzly Games features 127.5 million in Gold Coins available during the series. Should players accumulate enough Gold Coins, they receive special avatars. Playing ring games using Gold Coins also allow players the opportunity to unlock Sweeps Cash tournaments.

Eagle Cup Champion and Hometown Hero

Also in play is the chance to become an Eagle Cup Champion. Any player who wins a Gold Coin or Sweeps Cash tournament receives a one-of-a-kind Champions Pack.

This contains a plethora of Global Poker swag, including the Champions Avatar.

Additionally, the Hometown Heroes promotion returns during the Grizzly Games. By snapping a picture of yourself wearing Global Poker gear in your hometown, you are eligible to win a series of prizes. Free sweeps are awarded just for following Global Poker on social media.

Some of the prizes include:

  • SC$20 for sharing a photo of a player at their local casino/card room wearing Global Poker gear.
  • SC$100 for a 10-second video of a player in a local poker tournament wearing their Global Poker gear with the player next to them saying “I love Global Poker.”
  • SC$1,000 for a player who wins a tournament wearing Global Poker gear and shares the winner’s photo with Global Poker.

Players looking to be competitive for the duration of the series can check out the leaderboard challenge. The winner of the overall leaderboard wins SC$15,000, and each weekly leaderboard boasts an added SC$3,000 in giveaways.
