New in Online Poker for December

With the holidays just around the corner, there is no better time to earn a little extra cash and prizes to help out with your holiday shopping. And a number of our favorite online poker rooms are offering some fantastic promotions this month. Here’s a quick glance at what’s out there.

At Interpoker this December, celebrate the "12 Days of Christmas" by taking part in one (or all twelve) exciting promotions that will take place each day from the 13th through the 24th. The details of each promotion will be revealed two days before each date but promise to be huge. There is also a "Christmas Cracker" No Limit holdem tournament scheduled for December 18th at 2pm ET where the prize is 150 thousand pounds ($260K US).

The "Win Your Tuition" promotion is back at Absolute Poker and right now you have the opportunity for early registration. The main event isn’t until late May 2006, but for those who take the opportunity of the early registration will become eligible to for a number of great Free Rolls and prizes leading up to the event. The contest is open to eligible college students and the winner will win their spring tuition paid for by Absolute.

There is a lot going on at Ultimate Bet this month. Every Wednesday at 9pm EST enter in a $50,000 guaranteed prize event or test your skills out every Sunday at 8 pm EST for a chance at a piece of the guaranteed $150,000 prize pool tourney. But the main promo this December at Ultimate Bet is "The Ultimate Plasma Poker Event".

In this promotion you will have three chances at winning one of Seven 50 inch Panasonic HDTV Plasma TV’s. For players who earned at least 50 qualifying Ultimate points in Novemeber, all you have to do is increase your percentage of points earned this month compared to last month. The three players with the highest increase in points percentage will win a plasma. The players who come in 4th through 3003rd place, you will automatically be entered into the Plasma Free Roll tournament on Jan 7th where the top three finishers will receive a Plasma. And finally, every Ultimate point you earn in December (for those who earned at least 50 in Nov.) will award you with one raffle ticket that will be entered into a draw for the last Plasma (will take place on Jan. 7th).

Finally, Full Tilt Poker is hosting a huge $200k guarantee tournament on December 4th. The tournament is a $200 + $16 buy-in event but qualifying Sateellites are taking place right now and start as low as $4 buy-ins. You can also win a spot in the tournament by using 500 Full Tilt points to enter a qualifier. Full Tilt is also featuring "Post-Game Poker", where every Sunday, after football, play in this special tournament. The tourney begins at 11:59pm ET and besides the regular first place cash, the winner will win $1 for every point scored in each NFL game played that day.
