I'd rather see it go back to this.. https://www.unibet.co.uk/promotions/poker-promotions/january-mission

Qualifier tickets for the weekend tourneys, UK/UO/EO sats or whatever else is running.  

Have you read my blog HERE... It's long isn't it Smile

 I love 3000k gtd tournaments, keep it. Just with less players.

Okay.. As I can see many people don't like these freerolls. I don't like them too and they don't encourage me to complete the missions. My suggestions: 1. Make these freerolls faster structure (1 min levels is always fun to play) 2. Get rid of the freerolls and give something like mtt qualifier tickets or just bonus shop points


You misunderstood, people like the freeroll's, we don't like that the missions are so easy to complete and there are to many people in them, like 500+.

I don't agree that the missions should be harder so that less people make the freerolls. If you make the requirements harder to eliminate people, the people who aren't going to make it are:

  • people with micro-bankrolls who aren't able to complete enough orbits on 4NL or play enough SNGs/MTTs to complete the requirements
  • people who are mainly on Unibet for sports betting or casino and who just occasionally come to the poker site. They'll lose their motivation to complete the missions if they get too demanding

It's exactly those two groups that the missions should be targetting. I love the bigger-than-rake rakeback the missions provide to people with a micro-bankroll, and think it should stay that way.

@MathrimC So you think making the missions harder will imbalance the ecosystem, after some thought i think your right, its a bad ideea to make them harder.

As @MathrimC says.

Everyone should be able to profit from these promo's. These monthly challenges are made for small players to get something going.

But, with these freerolls I don't feel like that happens. Giving everyone qualifier tickets for SE or SS instead would be way more fun and you can chose when to play. (Certainly because there is only one day to play each monthly xk GTD tourney. Which I miss most of the times)

I had this exact same feeling with the last moving on up. I played PLO and won myself a ticket for the 1k PLO flip (250 tickets were given away.) 10 people didn't get anything... And I was one of them. This kind of stuff is really sad. Or make it either 250 first to reg get the ticket... Or give everyone something (even if all prizes would be lower.)

So. TLDNR: Make something where everyone gets a reward for their activities. (Okay if you make level 4 and 5 a bit harder so a bit less players get it)

Hard to say if this is actually better from a 'poker ecological' standpoint for rec/losing players than the old format of the missions. I don't really think so, but I understand why  Unibet is taking this route.  I sometimes have the feeling some of you guys tend to forget that Unibet's purpose is not to provide maxEV for ambitious small stakes grinders who hardly ever deposit anyway, but to make money as a company. I mean someone mentioned January of this year, where they gave away 18€ value in Pts/tickets  if you completed all 5 missions. Sure I'd prefer this as well obviously, but simply compare it to this month rewards: 3€ in pts, and ~6,50€ per player in freeroll value. That's cutting almost 50% costs for Unibet, plus Bonus points have the benefitial effect that it encourages players to remain with Unibet and amass more points in order to convert it into a more benefitial Bonus let's say.

So unless the number of completed missions goes down significantly thus showing costumers are not anymore encouraged to play more/certain games to complete the missions, I see no reason why Unibet should change their marketing strategy on this.

It's not enjoyable to grind for 3 hours and finish outside the money in these freerolls. Structure is way too deep and slow and that doesn't benefit recs too. And why do they start 1 hour apart?

The valid criticism, in my opinion, is that the structures of these freerolls are TOO DEEP.  I won't play one if it looks to take longer than 2 hours to final table.  I do not care if there are 200 players or 2000, as long as it does not take too long to complete.

Freerolls should be quick, painless, and reward "fun" play not the grinder who thinks he's at the final table of the WSOP and is firing up his ICM calculator for each decision.
