Every poker player worth their salt has to visit Las Vegas at least once in their lifetime. It is, after all, the Mecca for poker players.
One of the main stumbling blocks poker players face when it comes to Sin City is the costs involved in getting there, staying there and playing major tournaments there. Unless you’re filthy rich, these costs can be out of the constrains of your bankroll and life roll, but thankfully UK & Ireland PokerNews has four ways that you can win your way to Las Vegas this summer for next to nothing – and even for nothing in some cases.
partypoker Kings of Vegas
The Kings of Vegas promotion at partypoker is like no other Las Vegas promotion currently on offer. It’s unique selling point is the fact it is not only you who wins flights, accommodation, spending money, exclusive excursions and a buy-in to the $2 million guaranteed WPT500 at Aria, you get double the prizes to share with a friend.
Every Sunday until June 7, there is a Kings of Vegas Final at partypoker that costs nothing to enter. However, it is a ticket-only affair and the only way to get your hands on a ticket is to complete a simple challenge, win entry in one of the Kings of Vegas coinflip tournaments, purchasing a final ticket in the loyalty store or if you make a deposit of $200 or more using the code “VEGASFINAL” you’ll also receive a ticket.
Each final guarantees five packages, worth $6,000 each, will be won, making for a total of 25 packages during the promotional period.
Sky Poker Viva Las Vegas
Sky Poker is also jumping on the Las Vegas bandwagon and offering two packages, one worth £3,200 and the other weighing in at £10,000.
Satellites feeding into the £3,200 package final (which costs £350 to enter) start as low as £1.85 while the £10,000 package final (costing £1,100 to enter) has satellite tournaments starting at only £2.80.
Both packages award flights, between £1,000 and £1,500 spending money, flights, Sky Poker hospitality, and entry into tournaments in Las Vegas.
888poker $13,000 WSOP Packages
888poker is the official sponsor of the 2015 World Series of Poker (WSOP) and is really pushing the boat out when it comes to awarding WSOP Main Event packages.
