Betfair unveils Canadian National Site

By Nathan Carroll, Rakeback.com Staff Writer

Betfair Poker CanadaContinuing the trend of localized national online poker networks as has been seen in France and Italy, the UK-based internet gambling operator Betfair recently created an isolated, intra-state network for Canadian players. The Canadian site officially split off from the larger Betfair network on Monday of this week.

To promote the launch, Betfair is offering a series of freerolls and giveaways available exclusively for Canadians. Dubbed the O Canada Series: Frenzy Week, the promotion offers a $150 freeroll and a $5 tournament with a $500 guarantee each day from Novemmber 8-14. In addition to these 14 events, Betfair Canada will also host two special NLHE tournaments this upcoming weekend.

The first of these boasts a $1000 guarantee and will be free to enter for players who made a cash deposit to the site any time from the 8th to the 12th. The second is the O Canada Sports Swag Frenzy, and it will operate as a standard $10 buy-in tournament--but with the winners receiving comped sports gear in addition to their regular cash prizes. The fourteen top finishers will be awarded with t-shirts, hats, and jerseys.

The sports theme also applies to the week's bonus jackpot offer which will award a $1500 sports event package to anyone who skillfully maneuvers their way into three tournament victories. The package includes two $500 tickets to a North-American sports event and $500 in travel expenses. Any lucky winner will be able to negotiate the details with Betfair management.
