Join PokerNews and 888poker at the WSOP for Free
We hope that you’ve been enjoying our coverage of the 2018 World Series of Poker so far as we bring you the action from every one of the bracelet-awarding events in Las Vegas. Thanks to a fantastic promotion from 888poker, we could be writing about you playing in the Main Event for free.
The $10,000 WSOP Main Event shuffles up and deals for the first time on Jul. 2 and, as mentioned, you could be playing in it for free. Any 888poker player who has created their account via PokerNews and who have made at least one deposit into their 888poker accounts are invited to compete in freerolls called Satellite Special WSOP Main Event Package that run daily at 9:00 p.m. CET and award at least one ticket to the $55 Special WSOP Main Event Package tournament.
These freerolls are completely free to enter and you can give yourself a better chance of winning the $55 ticket by rebuying if you lose your stack while the rebuy period is open. You can purchase up to 20 rebuys of $1 each with each rebuy giving you 2,000 chips. It is also possible to purchase a 5,000-chip add-on at the break, also for $1.
The $55 Special WSOP Main Event Package tournament commences at 10:30 p.m. CET on Jun. 10 and guarantees at least one $12,600 package is awarded as a prize. Qualify for this stage via the freerolls, or buy in direct for $55, and you’ll sit down with 5,000 chips and play to 12-minute blinds. Should you dust off your stack, you can make up to eight rebuys of $55 each that give you 5,000 more chips. A 10,000-chip add-on is available at the end of the rebuy period for $55.
Whoever wins the $12,600 package will fly out to Las Vegas to join the 888poker team and play in the 2018 WSOP Main Event. The package awards its winner:
- A $10,000 WSOP Main Event tournament buy-in
- $1,050 for travel and expenses paid directly into your 888poker account
- Five nights’ stay at the luxurious Vdara Hotel in Las Vegas
- Transportation from Vdara Hotel to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino
- Access to the players welcome session at Vdara Hotel
- An 888poker LIVE kit
Those of you who have signed up to 888poker via PokerNews can head to the 888poker tournament lobby and register for the next available freeroll. If you already have an 888poker account, you can still get involved in this promotion by buying into the $55 Special WSOP Main Event Package direct via the main tournament lobby.
Some of you won’t already have an 888poker account; we can help you with this. Download 888poker via PokerNews and you’ll receive $88 worth of cash and tournament tickets just for creating your account (this is a free £20 to residents of the United Kingdom). Your initial deposit, when you make one, will be matched 100 percent up to a maximum of $888, which is the biggest 888poker bonus found online.
