Party WPT 500

While players are busy spending thousands of dollars playing in World Series of Poker (WSOP) events, you can spend just $565 in the nearby WPT 500 at Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas where there is $1 million in prizes guaranteed.

What is the WPT 500?

The WPT 500 is a new series brought to you by partypoker and the World Poker Tour (WPT) and it has been designed for the common man. The WPT understands many people love playing poker for huge prize pools, but do not want to spend four or five figures to compete in them. Hence, this series allows players to have their cake and eat it too without having to kill their bank account just to get a shot at it.

The latest instalment of this exciting series takes place at the Aria Resorts and Casino in Las Vegas from July 1 - 6, 2014. There will be six Day 1's, and yes, you can enter all six. Your biggest stack will be in play on Day 2 where you can compete for a share of a $1 million guaranteed prize pool that awards at least $200,000 to its winner!

Can I Get into the Action for Free?

You probably think our friends at partypoker are crazy, but they are giving you a chance to get in on this exciting WPT event for free with daily freerolls running from now until June 15. These freerolls award 25 tickets to a $1 satellite which can propel you into other feeder tournaments to eventually win an amazing WPT 500 package or seat!

Partypoker recognizes that the $565 buy-in might still be out of the budget, especially when you consider travel costs and spending money. With this in mind, they are running tons of free feeder satellites and many others starting as low as $1 that can put you on your path to either a $565 WPT 500 seat, or a fantastic WPT 500 package worth $1,700.

What's even better about these amazing satellites is that you can win multiple Day 1 seats, giving you an even better chance at building a monster stack for Day 2 when you will be competing for the big bucks!

Main Package Route

There are 11 WPT 500 $1700 packages guaranteed every week at partypoker, with each of these fantastic packages awarding its winner the following items:

  • One $500+$65 WPT 500 buy-in
  • $500 for travel and spending money
  • Four nights hotel accommodation and hospitality

The $200 buy-in WPT Value Satellites run just about every day of the week, with the amount of packages and for each tournament presented on the table below.

For those that don't mind spending a little money, but still don't want to spend $200, there are tons of qualifiers that can get you into the action for $1, $2, or $20.

Seat-Only Route

Partypoker is also offering you a chance at just winning a WPT 500 seat valued at $565 instead of the full package. This is great if you are already going to be in Las Vegas in the beginning of July or have already won a full package to this great event and want to better your chances at winning by having more than one Day 1 seat.

Each and every Monday at 2:25 p.m. ET and Thursday at 9:25 ET, partypoker is hosting a $20 WPT 500 Seat Rebuy Satellite. The satellites reward one seat to the partypoker presents: WPT 500 Aria Resort and Casino event.
