Cake Poker Heating Up the Cold Month of December - December Donkey Promotion

by Omar

‘Tis the season for giving and most of the major online poker sites are following the old holiday premise by offering customers many different types of promotions, some more innovative than others. While some of the giants are offering their annual tournament series’, Cake Poker is definitely offering the funniest sounding promotion of them all. Dubbed the December Donkey Promotion, Cake is offering this promo as both a way for players to earn special rewards as well as helping out the charity Oxfam.

Oxfam is a charitable organization that provides real working farm animals to families in need. Since this is a poker promotion, the only farm animal that is prominently mentioned at just about any poker game is, of course, the donkey. A donkey in poker terms refers to a bad player but in this case, there is nothing negative about being a donkey as far as this promo goes.

Details of the December Donkey Promotion

For the entire month, Cake players can make donations ranging from $5 to $300 towards the cause, the proceeds of which will be used towards the purchase of live donkeys to be given out to rural families in need. In reality, each donkey costs $100 so a donation of $300 will provide 3 donkeys to the cause. If someone pays the full purchase price for a donkey, they can dedicate the animal to the person of their choice and Cake Poker will announce the dedications through their blog.

In addition to the donkey donations and dedications, Cake Poker will also be running satellites into the Aussie Millions from now through January. The event begins on January 13th and will feature 20 separate events, culminating with a $10,000 Championship Event. That’s not all going on at Cake. From now until December 12th, cash game players will be earning Gold Cards at four times the normal rate. This is timely because it allows players more opportunities to redeem their gold cards into cash through the “Match and Win” promo.

If you need even more proof that Cake is an exciting place to be during this holiday season, they are also running the Champions League Tournament Series. Sharing its name with the UEFA soccer league, Cake is hosting tournaments nightly on days of Champions League soccer matches on December 7th and 8th, tomorrow and Wednesday. Any player who cashes in both will have earned an extra free $50 bonus.

So it seems ‘tis the season to be at Cake Poker.
