A Great Way to Enter the WSOP Main Event
This is the sixth year that 888poker has provided online satellites and tournament packages for the World Series of Poker. Year after year, the online brand has proven itself to be a very generous when it comes to helping players make poker dreams come true.
Last year, over 100 players in the Main Event won their seats through 888poker satellites. In fact, 17 of them made the money and took home over $1 million in total prizes between them.
Guy Cohen, Senior Vice President of B2C at 888 Holdings says:
“We’re proud to be longstanding partners of WSOP, the biggest and most popular poker series in the world, as part of our commitment to make poker more accessible and exciting for our customers who will be able to qualify to the biggest poker event of the year directly from 888poker’s online platform.”
About the Crazy 888 Event
The Crazy 888s side event is quite new to the World Series of Poker. It was launched six years ago, when 888 first partnered up with the WSOP. With a buy-in of $888, the winner of the event receives an impressive $888,888 grand prize.
Last year’s winner was Rick Alvarado of Ontario, California. The runner up was Mark Radoja of Guelph, Canada, who received $548,888.
This is also a World Series of Poker bracelet event. So, 888poker players who win 2020 WSOP Mega Packages have the chance to vie for two dazzling, diamond encrusted bracelets.
How to Qualify for the WSOP Online
Every week until the WSOP begins, 888poker will be awarding one 2020 Mega Package. They will run on Sundays at 8:30pm (GMT) with a buy-in of $1,050.
If that isn’t within your budget, however, there are plenty of qualifiers available. Buy-ins for these events are fixed at 1c, 10c, $1, $5 and $55. So, no matter how big or small your bankroll is, you would win your way to Las Vegas.
