Online Casino Poker Reaches UK Campuses

University students in the United Kingdom have been quick to embrace the online casino poker craze currently sweeping American college campuses. In the latest move to market online casino poker products to students, one popular poker site has announced plans to launch the first British nationwide Student Poker Tour. The first British online casino poker tour for students will begin in Liverpool on February 20 and will travel through Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Birmingham, London and Bristol.

The online casino firm’s tour is especially designed to showcase those university students over the age of 18 who are already seasoned online casino poker players, and to encourage newcomers to experience the popular game of online casino poker. Organizers predict a successful inaugural competition after a similar event attracted a strong turnout in the U.S. The UK tour concludes in Bristol on March 3rd.

Thousands of students are expected to compete in the first stages of the online casino poker tournament to determine their university’s top player. Competitions will be held at Poker Room’s website, with the champion from each university facing off against his contemporaries in the final. Ten online casino poker players will compete on the March 11 final for a range of exciting prizes, including the grand prize of a brand new sports car valued at 15,000 pounds sterling.
