Road to Vegas: 888poker Offers Players Chance at WSOP Glory

Road to Vegas 888poker

Maybe your bankroll is more of a minor event than Main Event? Then 888poker has you covered with the site’s “Road to Vegas” promotion. The site offers a few ways for players to win their way to the WSOP $10,000 Main Event or Event 62, the $888 Crazy Eights No-Limit Hold'em 8-Handed tournament. And there’s still time for some lucky players to take home a package.

Newly Registered Players

The Road to Vegas is actually a two-part promotion. The first part is geared toward newly registered players. Simply by registering, players earn an “All-in Tournament” ticket – that could pay big dividends.

The All-in Tournament plays out basically like a raffle. Right before the tournament gets underway, players will learn on screen if they are playing for the top prize, a Main Event package, or an entry into the Crazy Eights event. Once the tournament begins, players are constantly all-in until there is only a single player left; the winner.

That last man or woman standing takes home the prize package. The $888 event is certainly not a bad prize either – paying out $888,888 to the winner.

First Time Depositors

The poker site’s second promotion is for first-time depositors using the dedicated promotional code “Vegas10.” These players then get a daily ticket to the All-in Tournament.

In addition, these new depositors also earn a one-month subscription to PokerGO. This promo makes it so all these players are connected to Las Vegas and the WSOP in some way – either as a prize package winner or checking out all the action live with the streaming PokerGO app.

Players have until June 13 to make that first deposit with the promo code "Vegas10" to get in on the All-in Tournament action.

Those who win the Main Event Package will be set up in style. Valued at $12,600, the Main Event package includes:

  • $10,00 buy-in paid by 888poker directly to the tournament organizer.
  • Five nights (July 3-8) at the luxurious Vdara Hotel in Las Vegas.
  • $1,050 for travel and expenses paid by 888 directly to the winner’s poker account.
  • An invitation to the 888 Poker welcome session.
  • Daily transportation from the Vdara to the Rio Hotel and Casino to play.
  • An 888Live poker kit with some poker swag.

Those winning the Crazy 8s Package will also be served up a nice prize. Valued at $2,700, that package includes:

  • $888 buy-in entry to the Crazy Eights Event paid by 888 Poker directly to the tournament organizer.
  • Three nights (June 30 – July 3) at the Rio Hotel and Casino Las Vegas.
  • $1,050 for travel and expenses paid by 888 directly to the Crazy 8 winner’s poker account.
  • An invitation to the 888 Poker welcome session.
  • An 888Live poker kit with some poker swag.

888poker officials are excited about this promotion and how it can connect any player on the site who participates to a chance at a big event at the WSOP – and then maybe an even bigger story with a nice cash in Las Vegas.

So grab the laptop and cross your fingers, maybe it will be your road to Vegas. And if not, maybe another nice online win is in your future. For more information on the promotion, click here.
