ARLINGTON, VA, June 27, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Fantazzle Fantasy Sports Games is unveiling its first ever fantasy poker game, and its second major free fantasy game of the summer (the first being a Free Fantasy World Cup Game). Fantazzle and Fatty's Poker are proud to offer a new and exciting fantasy poker game that is completely integrated into Fatty's poker-based reality show. The fantasy game will award a seat to the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2011 as a prize for 1st place, a $1,500 entry prize to the WSOP for 2nd place, a $1,000 entry prize for 3rd place, and more prizes for players who finish 4th through 20th place. The poker game is 100% free and one of the only fantasy poker games that is available to play online.
Fantazzle's fantasy poker game offers unique scoring with fantasy cash (which acts just like points in fantasy games) that awards each fantasy team for how long each poker pro lasts in the tournament and additional rewards for picking players who cash in the event. All fantasy poker rosters must be completed by the start of the 2010 World Series of Poker on July 5th, 2010.
Fantazzle makes it easy to compete, allowing fantasy players to select a starting lineup of poker players in the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event. Each player will fill out their roster from ten pre-determined groups of fantasy poker professionals. The groups are broken down into categories such as Fatty's poker players, past WSOP winners, domestic poker pros, online poker pros and international poker pros. You can also fill in your own name if you are playing in the event or if you do not see the pro poker player you want to pick.
Fantazzle Fantasy Sports Games has taken the lineup and scoring basics of all fantasy sports games and applied them to this contest to create a one of a kind free fantasy poker game for poker fans around the world. With this new fantasy poker venture, Fantazzle has begun creating fantasy poker games that give poker fans and fantasy players the opportunity to watch and enjoy the WSOP Main Event even if they didn't win a seat themselves!
Once the players are selected, the fantasy user can watch their fantasy dollars accumulate once the World Series of Poker begins on July 5th. The fantasy team whose poker pros collectively finish the highest in the 2010 WSOP Main Event, will win the grand fantasy poker prize - a seat at the 2011 WSOP Main Event. The prize list for the fantasy poker game extends beyond the grand prize winner as well. The second place prize for the poker game is a seat into a $1,500 WSOP 2011 tournament, and the 3rd place fantasy prize is a $1,000 seat at the WSOP 2011, In addition to seats in the WSOP as the fantasy poker prizes, players also win a VIP Fatty's Poker package. The VIP poker package includes a Fatty's VIP Membership Card, an invite to the club during filming of the Fatty's Reality Show, and an appearance at a feature table on the show.
In addition to the fantasy poker prizes for WSOP seats and VIP access, 4th to 10th place prizes will be an entry into Fatty's Final Table Challenge to play for a cash prize, with the winner appearing on the Fatty's poker reality show. The 11th to 20th place prizes are a Fatty's shirt and hat and a chance to meet the Fatty's players on the reality show. In total, there are 20 places paid for in this 100% FREE fantasy poker game.
Fatty's Poker is the perfect partner for Fantazzle to team up with. "We're constantly looking for ways to change and create the way fans and users think about fantasy games," says founder Ryan Parr. "Working with Fatty's Poker is a perfect fit as they understand the opportunity fantasy poker introduces to poker fans." The combination of fantasy games and poker is a perfect marriage given the demographics of players.
