Terms and Conditions
- The Universal Championship of Poker (UCOP) promotion (the “Promotion”) is run by Prima Poker Limited and its licensors (“Prima”). The Promotion is open to all of Prima’s MPN poker operators (the “Operators”), to offer to their players who can lawfully place real-money wagers on the Operators’ poker room websites and are aged 18 years or over (“Players”). The “MPN” is the online poker network made available by Prima and known as the “Microgaming Poker Network”.
- Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) applies to all times stated in these terms and conditions (these “Terms”).
- The Promotion will commence at 00:01 on the 9 September 2018 and will run until 23:59 on the 23 of September 2018 (the “Promotion Period”).
- During the Promotion Period, each Operator will automatically opt in for this Promotion by virtue of being part of the MPN and make the Promotion available to its Players. The Operator agrees to be bound by these Terms and agrees to the placement of a promotional banner for the Promotion on the Operator’s MPN websites for the Promotion Period. Prima will provide the Operator with a sample promotional banner which the Operator may use during the Promotion Period.
- During the Promotion Period, the Promotion will be offered to the Players by the participating Operators and will be open to the Operator’s Players.
- To enter the Promotion, a Player will need to create a new account or log into their existing account with an Operator during the Promotion Period.
- On each day of the Promotion Period the Player is able to play events with different buy-in and guaranteed amounts as set out in the table below. For clarity, each UCOP event is an individual game/tournament played during the Promotion Period.
UCOP SCHEDULE (TBC)
- Leaderboard points for each UCOP event are calculated as follows: For each event, the points are calculated as the square root of the buy-in* for that event, multiplied by the number of entrants to that event, divided by the final position of the Player. This figure is then multiplied by the final table bonus awarded to that Player for the event, which is based on the table below and is dependent on the final position achieved by that Player. *Buy-in for Re-buy and/or Add-On UCOP events is calculated as the total prizepool available to be won for that event, divided by the number of entrants to that event. For all other UCOP events (for example, Freezeout events), the buy-in is calculated as the cost to the Player to buy-in to that specific event.
Final Table Bonus for each event is calculated based on the finishing position of the Player for that event as follows:
1st place – 1.5
2nd place – 1.45
3rd place – 1.4
4th place – 1.35
5th place – 1.3
6th place – 1.25
