Natural8 is a poker room in continual evolution, always seeking to grow and improve. In its latest efforts to fortify the brand and embellish what it brings to players, Natural8 has updated software, given players new weekly missions and scheduled its All in or Fold (AOF) festival.
$100,000 AOF festival
The flagship offering from Natural8 in the coming month is the $100,000 AOF festival. Specially designated AOF tables will be in operation during the festival, and players simply have to take a seat and play the required number of hands to get involved. Once the required number of hands has been played, players will be awarded a seat into an AOF tournament with a guaranteed prize pool. Hand counts run in four separate week-long periods between September 1st and September 29th.
|Required AoF Hands||Eligible Tournament||Tournament Time||Total Prize|
|200, in a day||All-In AoF Festival $200 GTD||Daily throughout September, 15:00:00 (UTC+0)||$101,000|
|500, in a day||All-In AoF Festival $500 GTD||Daily throughout September, 16:00:00 (UTC+0)|
|3,000, in a week||All-In AoF Festival $20K GTD|

|September 15th, 17:00:00 (UTC+0)|

|September 29th, 17:00:00 (UTC+0)|
New weekly missions giving $20,000 away to players
Traditionally, Natural8 have always opted to give players extra rewards via missions, with daily missions formerly being the promotion of choice. Now, the mission system has been given an overhaul, and the switch has now been made to a weekly format. This switch was made in response to player feedback and should help carry the player experience forward another step. The missions have been made easier and players now have more time to complete them. In addition to that, $20,000 is now being awarded each week through these missions.
Among the software changes brought in with the latest update is a switch in the PokerCraft section. The layout has been adjusted to a timeline format for ease of use and a better aesthetic feel.
Tournament double rebuys are a particularly interesting new development in how players experience tournaments at Natural8. The standard rebuy period is now followed by a double rebuy period, in which players can rebuy for 300% of their starting stack. 8-max tournament tables are also being introduced, as are options for removing chat at the players discretion.
Natural8 can also now be played via a web browser, with no need for the software to be downloaded.
