Who does not love a sale around the Christmas season? As a celebration of its 20th year of serving online poker, 888poker is looking to celebrate the season and give players a bit of a present by slashing prices on select tournaments.
The Happy Holidays Sale is a year-end blowout event where 888poker has slashed the buy-ins of some of its most popular games. In keeping with the theme of a holiday sale, though, the prices are slashed, but the guarantees remain high.
As players settle in for the final push to the big holiday, there will be lots of poker action to keep them busy online during the downtimes of Christmas preparation. The sale prices can be found in some of the most popular games on the client, including the hottest new craze in poker, the Mystery Bounty format.
Players can celebrate Christmas day with a shot at colossal mystery bounties in three cut-rate games. There will be $145k guaranteed in the Yuletide games with three different price points to suit most bankrolls.
Still Lots of Value in the Happy Holidays Sale
While the sale has been ongoing since Dec 19, there is still a lot of value to be found in the remaining discounted games. Two games are also slated for Dec 23, before the big tournaments on Christmas Day.
In addition to the Mystery Bounty games, there will be a couple of Big Shot games with buy-ins on the chopping block. See the list below for the remaining games in the sale.

Big Live Poker News
The end of the year brings big news on the live poker front regarding the 2022 recap and the upcoming 2023 season of 888poker Live. 2022 ended with a bang on the live scene for 888poker with a festival in Madrid in November, and a small Christmas series in Rozvodov during December.
In Madrid, the Main Event ended up with nearly €350k in prizes with a field of 374 entries for a very good capper on a solid series. Later in Rozvodov in December, the €288 Lucky 8’s Main Event ended up with over 1000 entries but barely missed its €300k guarantee.
During the Madrid event, 888poker added more talent to its ambassador team. During the play on Day 1B of the Main Event, Spanish pro m“218462-lucia-navarro-joins-888poker-brand-ambassador.
Navarro seemed thrilled to be part of the team. “With so much love for the game and an eye to making it even more player-focused, I look forward to representing 888poker with pride. Thank you for the opportunity.”
Finally, 888poker recently dropped its 2023 live poker schedule with five dates announced for next year. The 888poker LIVE tour will visit London twice in 2023, but it is heading back to Madrid for the 2023 kickoff in January.
