Want to know a secret? Training for a marathon is an unbelievable slog. It’s running three or four times a week, watching your sleep, diet and routine like a hawk. It’s gruelling. But thankfully the BGO April Marathon is a little more enjoyable.
Scratch that, it’s much more enjoyable. You’ll get thrills every step of the way and be in the chance to win great tech prizes including PlayStations, Apple Watches and TVs, and unreal cash prizes.
How do I take part in the BGO April Marathon?
One of the best things about the BGO April Marathon is that entry is totally free. To get your entry, all you need to do is deposit from now until 28th April.
Once you make your deposit of £10 or more, go to the main Tournaments page on the BGO site and enter that day’s April Marathon Tournament.
You can enter once per day, so if you feel like making a deposit of more than £10 in one week, our advice is to spread it over several days. That way you can enter more times per week and then you’re in with a chance of more prizes.
We love the way most BGO tournaments are played on a really level playing field. When you enter the tournament, you’ll get a set number of Tournament Spins. Then everything you win with those spins determines your position on the daily leaderboard.
The player with the highest wins gets a prize!
