Have you dreamed about playing poker in the biggest stage of the year surrounded by the bright neon lights of Las Vegas?
We bet you have, and if you are over 21 years old, we are going to try to get you to sunny Las Vegas to play in the World Series of Poker (WSOP) absolutely free!
Our friends at 888poker understand most poker players dream about the day they can compete for huge money in the WSOP as they also understand that not everyone has the thousands of dollars it takes to make their dreams come true.
Thanks to the special relationship that we share with 888poker, one lucky PokerNews reader will have a chance to play a $4,500 WSOP Side Event package and enjoy an amazing time in Las Vegas without having to spend even a single buck of their own.
If you would like to be 'the one' and if you think you have what it takes to compete with the other players sharing the same dream you have, here’s what you can do: join us at 888poker every Thursday in May, at 7:05 p.m. GMT and play in the PokerNews-exclusive freeroll .
The top 10 finishers will get to compete in the PN WSOP Vegas 2014 Side Event Qualifier at 7:05 p.m. GMT on Sunday, May 25. And if you will be the lucky winner of the Side Event Qualifier ... well, you will have to get ready to pack your bags and go on the trip of your lifetime in a deluxe $4,500 WSOP package!
So, remember: you don't have to win a freeroll to play for the big prize on May 25. All you need to do is finish in the top ten in any PN WSOP Vegas 2014 Weekly Freeroll and – that’s it! You have earned your seat to the big one!
In case you are wondering what dreams are made of, here’s what the $4,500 package includes:
- Six nights (June 30 - July 6) accommodation at the Palazzo Hotel Las Vegas
- $1,500 buy-in for Event #60 – a no-limit hold’em tournament
- $1,500 for travel expenses (paid directly into your 888poker account)
- A special July 4th celebration
- Exclusive 888live poker merchandise
Las Vegas. For Free. For Real.
It really couldn’t be any easier to get involved in these freerolls.
The only requirement is to create your 888poker account through PokerNews Canada and make one deposit.
Signing up through us will allow you to play in these great freerolls and also (but this depends on where you live) to receive some free cash up to $88 and a huge 100% sign-up bonus up to $888.
Oh, wait! Do you already have an account at 888poker? No problems, we have good news for you.
If you have already opened an 888poker account through PokerNews, you are then automatically eligible to play in the freerolls - as long as you have made at least one deposit.
Where Can I Find the Freerolls and How Do I Enter?
Finding the special WSOP freerolls is easy, but entering them in advance is a bit more difficult.
These tournaments are listed in the 888poker tournament lobby under the private tab listed as PN WSOP Vegas 2014 Weekly Freeroll. If you missed out on the first freeroll last week, be sure to enter the remaining three.
The next freeroll takes place today, May 8 at 7:05 GMT. If you are a PokerNews player, just go ahead: enter the password "PN2VEGAS" and get ready to start your path to Las Vegas!
We won't be releasing the passwords to the other freerolls in May until 48 hours before the tournament begins. Be sure to check out the 888 $4,500 WSOP Package promotion page before each tournament begins to increase your chances at playing for a trip to remember on May 25.
I Want to Skip Straight to the May 25 Qualifier, Can I?
If the cards didn't go your way in the freerolls, 888poker is allowing any PokerNews qualifying player to enter the May 25 tournament just by paying a low $22 entry fee. So whether you strike out in the freerolls or just don't like playing them, you can just skip ahead and enter the May 25 qualifier.
Offers like these don't come around all the time so be sure not to miss your chance to play in a 2014 WSOP side event for free. Download 888poker today to start your path to neon lights and big money in Las Vegas this summer.
