888Poker announces Huge WSOP Promotion

2017-04-24 16:44:15

888Poker are giving subscribers the chance to win $10,000,000 for landing the World Series of Poker main event. The 'Supersize ME (SME)' promotion, which ran to great success last year, allows players qualifying via an SME satellite the opportunity to take home the huge sum by going on to win the showpiece. Whilst the prize on offer has been reduced this year ($5m bonus last year + winning prize of ca. $8m), the promotion is sure to get poker players excited. Last year, 60 people qualified for the main event via 888Poker SME satellites. The seismic figure was not snapped up sadly, with 68th place the best any SME qualifier could muster.

How To Enter

Over the next 3 months, 888Poker will be running a number of satellites (poker tournaments) and sub-satellites, with the aim of giving players the chance to win tickets to the WSOP. Daily satellites will be running with entry fees starting from $0.01, so even the most conservative of players have the chance to land a dream seat at the Main Event. These daily satellites give players the opportunity to qualify for WSOP SME satellites, for which direct buy-ins cost $1,060.

Prize Money

This promo allows competitors the chance to win a life-changing sum of money having invested one cent. 888Poker representative Fernando Pons finished 9th at the WSOP main event last year, picking up $1m having invested only $30. Should the qualifier go on to win the main event, their prize money will be increased to $10m. The WSOP Main Event champion will receive around $8m, so 888Poker qualifiers will receive a bonus of around $2m.
