The 2017 World Series of Poker is almost upon us and poker players from all around the globe are planning to jet off to Las Vegas to take a shot at winning a life-changing prize in the WSOP Main Event, but only a select few will be playing in the 2017 WSOP Main Event knowing that their prize could be boosted to $10 million if they win the whole tournament.
888poker, the official sponsor of the World Series of Poker, is running satellites to the 2017 WSOP Main Event where the lucky winners get their hands on a $12,500 package. This package includes:
- $10,000 buy-in to the 2017 WSOP Main Event
- Five nights at the luxurious Vdara Hotel Las Vegas
- $1,200 towards travel and expenses
- VIP welcome session
- Daily transportation
- 888live poker kit
By winning one of these fantastic packages, you will not only be playing in the 2017 WSOP Main Event but doing so with the promise from 888poker that if you become the tournament’s champion, 888poker will round up your massive cash prize to a staggering $10 million.
WSOP 2017 Main Event Qualifier tournaments can be found in the 888poker lobby right now and start as low as $0.01. There are seven steps to qualification and you can buy into any step and try to win your $12,500 package.
The $0.01 buy in qualifiers feed into a $0.10 qualifier, which in turn award tickets to a $1 buy in qualifier. Next up the ladder is a $5 game, then a $30, followed by a $160 buy in qualifier tournament that puts you into the $1,050 finals which run every Thursday and Sunday at 10:30 p.m. CET.
Winning the WSOP Main Event after qualifying via 888poker would mean you would be the joint-second biggest winner in the tournament’s long history. In 2006, Jamie Gold topped a field of 8,773 to win the $12 million first-place prize, which is still the largest ever, then in 2014, Martin Jacobson bested 6,683 players to get his hands on $10 million.
