Indigo Sky Casino will wrap up its Ante Up Poker League at the end of this month. Beginning Oct. 1, players could earn points for cash play and for entering or re-entering selected tournaments and making the final table. When the three-month period concludes, the top-nine point-earners plus one league-eligible player chosen at random will be invited to compete in a final freeroll.
The freeroll winner earns an Ante Up Poker Cruise package for two for the Feb. 9 sailing out of Port Canaveral, Fla., plus $1,500 and a personalized league champion’s jacket from Ante Up. The rest of the players will earn cash. There’s still time to enter the league so don’t delay.
