Poker for Prizes? It’s True!

Believe it or not, there is actually an online casino
that is willing to offer you prizes for playing poker
for free. It sounds like it defies all common sense, but
it’s totally true! The Zero Risk Poker LLC internet
casino group has decided that poker aficionados ought to
have the same chance to win real cash as those players
at online casinos being charged for the privilege. Long
has it been the case that the only way to win money with
internet gambling was to open your wallet and place a
few bets – sometimes, quite handsomely. Imagine winning
prizes playing poker, without any financial risk on your
part! It’s a radical concept, but thanks to the
contributions of some eager sponsors, it’s about to
become a reality.
Zero Risk’s President and CEO, Adam Majewski, is pretty
darn excited about the venture. "We're taking the free
online poker concept and turning it on its head,"
commented Majewski enthusiastically. Texas Hold ‘Em
players at the Zero Risk online casinos will no longer
be held to the ages-old prospect that playing for “free
means playing for nothing.” Making it so that internet
casino poker is no longer a risky proposition is a
ground-breaker, Majewski acknowledges, but one that Zero
Risk feels that they are ready to take on… and more
over, profit from.
Sponsors looking to expand their
markets have proven eager to attach to the new online
gambling venture, by advertising on tables, sponsoring
tournaments, and through other forms of advertising.
Other online casinos only offer prizes to non-paying
players promotionally, as a way to woo them other to
“real money” affiliate sites. Majewski insists that is
not Zero Risk’s aim.
Thanks to the online casino’s generous sponsoring
partnerships, Zero Risk Poker players can be assured
that their internet casino poker experience will remain
totally free. The online gambling site currently has
over forty-seven sponsors, offering over twenty-five
grand a month in prizes – a number that is only expected
to rise. In the world of online casinos, that’s a rare
