The Poker Attic Project, an online poker community consisting of an online poker room, a poker-themed online auction site, and a social networking site, will award a total of 10% ownership to 10 lucky customers in the first of a series of spectacular freeroll tournaments.
Online PR News – 15-July-2009 – – Poker Attic Owner/Manager Steve Morrow, who co-directed the 2002 World Series of Poker(R) while managing PokerStars.com from a start-up to the #2 position in the online poker industry, has announced the re-launch of the Poker Attic Project, an online poker community consisting of an online poker room, a poker-themed online auction site, and a social networking site.
The Poker Attic has partnered with the National League Of Poker to offer US-based, 100% legal, free online poker, requiring no deposits or credit cards, and offering cash and prizes totaling more than $75,000 each month.
The Poker Attic will also host a series of TPA-branded freeroll tournaments for their customers, with the initial freeroll awarding 1% ownership of the entire project to each of the top ten finishers. Qualifying for this tournament is totally free and can be accomplished in a matter of minutes.
Morrow decided to jumpstart the Poker Attic Project with this unusual and innovative freeroll, rather than seek investors to finance the typical online gaming marketing strategies. Morrow expects the freeroll to produce a viral marketing effect as anxious qualifiers spread the word, and figures to reach the 1000 qualifier cutoff within days.
While success in the online poker industry can never be guaranteed, the potential rewards of such success are astounding, and Steve Morrow definitely has the credentials, experience, and following to pull it off.
Morrow, who guided PokerStars.com from a start-up to the second-largest site in the industry in only 19 months, is the only person ever to direct both the largest land-based poker tournament and the largest online poker tournament. And through nearly two decades at the highest levels of land-based and online poker management, Morrow has maintained an unblemished reputation for honesty and integrity, a matter of some importance in today's often-troubling online poker environment.
PokerAttic.com, the eventual real-money online poker room, is currently used as the registration page for the co-branded PokerAttic/NLOP free online poker site. Morrow closely monitors the ever-improving online poker legal climate in Washington, D.C., as well as in cash-strapped and open-minded states like Florida and California. Morrow is ready and anxious to enter the real-money online poker market at the first legitimate opportunity.
The first phase of the Poker Attic Project, the online auction site, is currently live and open for business. ThePokerAttic.com is an extremely low-cost alternative to the big auction sites, with a ‘no sale, no fee’ policy for basic listings. With no listing fees and only a flat 2% final value fee, their fees end where the big sites' start. Optional listing enhancement fees are also a fraction of the big sites' fees.
ThePokerAttic.com welcomes all auction sellers fed up with or wary of the big sites' ever-rising fees and ever-changing policies. While obviously poker-oriented, ThePokerAttic.com has few restrictions on the nature of items that can be listed on the site and any registered member can suggest a new category for items they would like to sell.
As part of the re-launch promotion, the next 20 verified sellers will receive 'Preferred Seller' status, which includes a 50% reduction of the already low fees for a full year.
MyPokerAttic.com, the social networking site, will go live in mid-late 2009.
