Can You Turn a Freeroll Entry Into a WSOP Main Event Package?
The 2018 World Series of Poker (WSOP) kicks off on May 30 with the $565 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold’em event. Thirty-four days later, on Jul. 2, the $10,000 Main Event shuffles up and deals and you could be playing in it for free, yes nada, zilch, nothing. Here’s how.
888poker is the official sponsor of the 2018 WSOP and that means it is the only online poker site that can offer satellites into WSOP events, including the Main Event. To celebrate the start of what is the 49th annual WSOP, 888poker is giving PokerNews readers the chance to win a $12,600 package to the 2018 WSOP Main Event for free.
Daily freerolls called Satellite Special WSOP Main Event Package run at 9:00 p.m. CET and award at least one $55 ticket to the Special WSOP Main Event package tournament, which commences at 10:30 p.m. CET on Jun. 10. Each of the freerolls allows for up to 20 rebuys of $1 each and it is possible to purchase an add-on for $1 once the rebuy period ends.
At least one $55 ticket is guaranteed by 888poker and the site will put another ticket into play for each $55 in the prize pool.
