Paddy Power World Cup Promo

April 28, 2010

With the upcoming football World Cup in South Africa many online casinos are offering World Cup themed promotions. The popular Paddy Power online casino is hosting a promotion called Road to World Cup Glory. From April to June the promotion will be distributing £150,000 to its players. The April leg of the promotion is almost over and many players have already won their prizes. Those players who have not participated in this promotion can do so in May and June and win a share of £50,000 in each of the two months.

For every £1 players wager on the designated games during the designated days of the month they earn points. The more they wager the more points they will turn and will move higher up on the leader board. The players who top the leader board will win the prizes on offer. There are two types of leader boards. One is the monthly leader board that is based on the total points accumulated for the full month. This leader board offers prizes of £15,000, £7,500 and £5,000 to the first three places. Thereafter the prize amounts start decreasing and the player in the 25th place gets £100. The top 50 players on the leader board will also win a football jersey of their chosen country.

The second type of leader board is a daily one. This leader board offers prizes like signed football shirts, cash, bonus points and VIP tickets for domestic league and international football games. To make things more interesting each daily competition is dedicated to one of the countries that have qualified for the football World Cup.

£1 wagered on different games fetches different number of points. 20 points are given per £1 wagered on online slot games and many of the instant play games. 15 points are given per £1 wagered on a few of the instant play games. 1 point is given per £1 wagered on the table and card games and on the progressive jackpots. Therefore players have to choose judiciously on which games to wager. Generally speaking the games that offer more points are the games that have higher house edges and therefore average returns. Players have to balance between earning points in the promotion and therefore the prizes and a reasonable chance of winning payouts in the games. Also players who are falling behind on the leader board would have to wager on the online casino games that give maximum points so as to try and catch up.

Paddy Power Casino is powered by software from WagerWorks and offers more than 85 games for this Road to World Cup Glory promotion. The online casino is licensed in the gambling jurisdiction of Alderney.
