Responding to requests from players, Zynga has announced the upcoming launch of Leagues in Zynga Poker on Facebook. These Leagues will allow players to join a pool of 100 players for a chance to win real-world prizes, including dream vacations, tablets and even a new car.
The eight-week long Zynga Poker League season will begin on June 23. As players compete in poker hands, they’ll earn League Points and move up the ranks of the League Leaderboard. These League Points are then used to enter in-game sweepstakes for items including the grand prize, a Ford Shelby GT500.
Of course, it’s not as simple as playing the game to win big, as users will need to come together to unlock the car before it’s available to win. That is, Zynga Poker players can opt-in to the prize pool by donating a small portion of their in-game winnings toward an overall goal of 250 billion chips. If the goal is met, the grand prize will be unlocked, and one lucky player will literally drive away in a brand new car.
Official rules and more information about Zynga Poker Leagues is available on Zynga’s website.
