Everest Poker turns five

Maria Maceiras

In the fast-paced world of online poker, it's an accomplishment for a new poker site to last more than two years.

Everest Poker, on the other hand, has stood the test of time and is now celebrating its fifth anniversary.

In honor of its five years of operation, Everest is now offering five exclusive promotions for its players.

Perhaps the most interesting is a $500,000 guaranteed tournament that will see the final nine players play down to a winner at the actual 2009 WSOP Main Event final table in Las Vegas, with Everest covering flights and accommodations.


The rest of the promotions include a $5,000 freeroll for players who refer five friends in July or August, a bonus payout if you play in the five-billionth hand, another bonus payout if you're in hand 5,555,555,555, and finally, if you earn five Summit points a day, every day, for one month you'll qualify for a $5,000 freeroll.

Although Everest doesn't accept U.S. players, the site is well-known in North America as the official table sponsor for the WSOP.

Owned by GigaMedia, Everest Poker remains one of the most popular online rooms in Europe and Asia with a team of professional players that includes Steven van Zadelhoff, Voitto Rintala, Wooka Kim and Maria Maceiras.

Recent 2009 November Niner Antoine Saout also qualified for the WSOP Main Event through a $50 satellite on Everest.
