SUMMER SWAG—DROP IT LIKE IT’S HOT
GOLD COIN EVENT WINNERS

There’s plenty to play for, including a hammock, board shorts, shirt, towel, bucket hat, drinks bottle and more. There are so many in fact, we’ve put them all in a neat little prize table so you can see what prizes you’d like to play for. We’re good like that.
SWEEPS COIN EVENT WINNERS
For Sweeps Coin players, event winners stand to receive some of our classic Global Poker apparel—a hoodie, T-shirt and cap. We know it’s far too hot for hoodie season, but we’ve got you looking pretty fly for winter time, if we don’t say so ourselves.
Score the top spot in our Gold Coin Leaderboard, and you’ll get our sick Summer Series IV trophy and a bucketload of Summer Series IV swag, including a pretty impressive Global Poker hammock. Can you think of a better way to play Global Poker than dangling from a hammock? Answers on a postcard, please.
This summer’s Sweeps Coin Leaderboard winner won’t swim back to the pool empty handed. Literally. You’ll be making a splash with our Summer Series IV trophy, especially if you jump in the pool with it! We’ll also be sending you home with some of our classic Global Poker swag, and free SC entries to a Golden Scrimmage Tournament.
Check out our prize tables for a full breakdown.
Winners can expect to receive one of these avatars, and there is another avatar available for Summer Series enthusiasts in the avatar marketplace (where there are plenty of other exclusive Global Poker avatars).
We’ll have a raft of SC 22 and SC 33 satellites available every day, with entries to the Series available to those on whom the sun shines (and by that we mean, ‘those who win those satellite events’ obvs.).
