I am seeking CLARIFICATION on this Promotional 888 

'FREE SPORTS SWEEPSTAKE' a DAILY PRIZE POOL of upto $2000.

I was fortunate enough to win 3 such prizes on this but blew it on 2 of them but was fortunate enough to win a reasonably BIG one of around $14 which needed betting x 3 times this amount.

I did so, won on the first bet but lost the other 2 x $14 but was still left with enough to CASH OUT.

I have read the RULES & INSTRUCTIONS and i cannot see ANYTHING that says once you win actual cash & cash out you can NO LONGER ENTER ANYMORE ?

If it was there..then NO PROBLEM, those are the RULES but it appears NOT to be the case?

And yet since winning this one it no longer shows up on my 888 betting page.

MY QUESTION is WHY?

Hopefully someone from 888 will read this & will KNOW the ANSWER?

I enjoyed playing it, it was FUN but it looks like if you WIN that's it? which doesn't really make ANY sense because SOMEONE is going to win these sweeps anyway down the line! 
Does it really matter who it is?

I would understand if there was ONLY 1 CASH OUT allowed per person but i READ no such thing (unless i missed it?)


Would recommend this FREE SWEEPSTAKE to YOU FOLKS out there.

Hi Paul, Its looking good. Can you tell me where can I find this promotion? Because I cannot find it in my poker terminal or my sports account. Or is it for certain specific areas or persons?

Hello m8s I see two of ye have been lucky enough to win on this.  Can ye pick my ones, I am 14 for 0 lol. This looks so easy especially when there are two games.  Love this promo and I looked through my history and there are several cases where if I won it would have been between $50-$90.  Not bad for a free shot at it.  1 request, could ye leave Arsenal out of these things they kill me every time even in normal betting.Smile

Vaskar first...
From your 888 Poker account you should see the small sweepstakes banner at the top, clicking this should take you there or clicking on the BET ON SPORT small icon (just below PLAY CASINO in the bottom right)

If i do EITHER of these i get NO SIGN of this SWEEPSTAKE anymore...funny that huh?
Especially straight after cashing out Wink
Even Cryptic's link only brings up a small thin banner with 888 poker on the left & a picture of a footballer kicking a ball...so again NOTHING for me but hopefully you'll be able to play it Vaskar?

Cryptic...
Thanks for the reply, sadly that first link only shows the above but the rules page shows up ok & like i said it looks like there are NO LIMITS on wins or cashouts & if you are still able to play after winning one then i wonder why i can't?

Hi John...
Yeah you really DO have to leave ARSENAL alone in your bets Laughing
Your right this is a GREAT PROMO (if you can play it?)
DOn't worry about the 14 attempts & 0 (i did worse on the SuperHeroes Spin wheel & that only had 1 segment out of 9!!!! think i went 18 & 0 which is probably the equivilant of winning the LOTTERY Smile) also i too went something like this 14 attempts before finally winning one, i then went on to win another straight after but i think i lost the free bets on both of these.
3rd time was theCHARM...won $14 put it on a high return draw (more than 3-1) so $56 win.

I had to bet this $14 twice more before winning ANY ACTUAL MONEY & had just 1 of these come in i'd have been well in the money $100+ but both sadly failed me.
Still, i managed to cash out $30 mostly thanks to this win which i am grateful to 888 for (especially with christmas coming)

Wish you well John...
My tip is should you win for eg: $10 try this...
Get this $10 on a good odds match LIKELY to end up a DRAW? perhaps between two BIG evenly matched TEAMS (eg Liverpool vs Arsenal Laughing just JOKING! but you get the idea)
If you can get anywhere near that 3-1 for the draw (very unusual but it was a CHAMPIONS LEAGUE GAME) then you'd get $40 for this 1st bet.

That original $10 win then needs to bet 2 more times on different bets so 2x$10 = $20 but that first win when/if it happens? would still leave you with a £20 win with these other 2 bets giving you two chances at topping this up? 
I wish i could say i was unlucky with my two other attempts but i was MILES OUT.
Best of Luck John.

A Truly GREAT PROMO at a great time just before CHRISTMAS.

Just sad i can no longer take part Cry for whatever reason? but it was FUN while it lasted!

BEST of LUCK to ALL of you...especially with Christmas just around the corner....might help get a few extra presents for the kids or for your fathers & mothers.

SPEND it WISELY & WELL or just BLOW IT on CHRISTMAS BOOZE Wink

Hi chris, the first link you have sent is totally like what paul described. i have attached a screenshot of that. and your 2nd link totally working. 
I dont usually miss the promotions on 888, thats why i am very much astonished that how come i dont have even a sniff of this promo. 
Really hope that you will try and help to solve the issue.

Yes the first link includes a user ID so that the page opens and it knows it is me.

If you click on the link to the sports site and log in you should see the banner there

As MARIO BALOTELI was fond of observing 'WHY ALWAYS ME?'
Yes that first link shows what Vaskar put up but going the way you described by way of the sports link should bring up your betting page with that LOGO like that seen above but (for me at least) i get nothing but a thin orange block of WORLD CUP Quailfier Games bets.

Sadly for me (NO LOGO) it is weird...especially as this has happened as soon as i won actual cash & cashed it out (you know with Christmas & all)

Well Done Rhonda.
Like John said though...IT LOOKS fairly EASY having to predict just 2 or 3 results but it's amazing just how many times you end up losing.

At least my losing run has come to an END!!!!!!!!!!!
Not enough exlamation marks me thinks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
An inforced end i might add.
