The Winning Poker Network has released details of three WSOP promotions through which players can win the buy-in to the WSOP Main Event plus an extra $2,500 cash to help towards travelling expenses. Sites on the network are also offering players a reload bonus ahead of next week´s High Five tournament series.
If you are harboring ambitions to play in this year´s World Series of Poker Main Event, sites on the Winning Poker Network are giving you three different opportunities to win the $10,000 buy-in and a further $2,500 towards travelling expenses.
However, although advertised as a “WSOP package”, the $12,500 prizes are paid in cash. So, if you don´t harbor ambitions to play in this year´s World Series of Poker Main Event, you can still participate in the promotions and – if you win a first prize – simply keep the cash.
The WSOP promotions start next week at Americas Cardroom, True Poker, Black Chip Poker and Ya Poker, but there is a good reason to visit one of these four sites before next week. Each is offering players the chance to reload their balances and get a 50% reload bonus of up to $200 ahead of next week´s High Five tournament series. Details follow below.
WSOP Promotion #1 – The World Series of Jackpots
This is the fourth year sites on the Winning Poker Network will be hosting this popular game – a spin on the Network´s three-handed hyper-turbo Jackpot games – in which, instead of winning prizes up to 2,500x the buy-in, players can win a $12,500 cash prize for buy-ins of $3.00 or $30.00.
Naturally the higher buy-in will award more top prizes and, when the top prize is selected, all three players seated at the table each win $12,500 without playing a hand. The other prizes that can be won are 2x, 6x and 9x the buy-ins – in which case the games are played in winner-take-all format.
WSOP Promotion #2 – WSOP Qualifier Tournaments
From 22nd April, the Network will be hosting weekly “WSOP Qualifier Tournaments” on Sundays at 5:15pm (ET). These do not actually qualify players into the WSOP Main Event, but award a minimum number of $12,500 cash prizes each week until Sunday 24th June.
Over the first eight weeks of WSOP Qualifier Tournaments, the buy-in for each event will be $320.00 and each event will guarantee at least two $12,500 prizes. On Sunday 17th June, the buy-in goes up to $540.00 with a colossal thirty $12,500 “packages” up for grabs, with a final four $12,500 prizes guaranteed on Sunday 24th June – when the buy-in increases to $1,050.
WSOP Promotion #3 – WSOP Steps Tournaments
The WSOP Steps tournaments are 6-Max Sit & Go games over eight levels, awarding the winner (and often the second-placed player) a seat in the next level. The winner and second in the final level will each win a $12,500 cash prize, with the third placed player receiving $700 as a consolation.
Each level can be bought into directly for buy-ins of between $0.28 and $2,950.00, and players should keep an eye out for the pay-out structure in each level as it varies considerably. For example, Steps 2 and 6 pay four places deep, whereas the consolation prize for finishing third is Step 1 is a measly $0.30.
The High Five Reload Bonus
From next Wednesday (18th April) until next Sunday (22nd April), the Winning Poker Network will be hosting its April 2018 High Five tournament series (you can read about the High Five series here). Prior to the series starting, players at Americas Cardroom, True Poker, Black Chip Poker and Ya Poker have the chance to reload their balances and claim a 50% bonus of up to $200.
If you are an existing player at one of these sites, in order to take advantage of the bonus use the High Five Reload Bonus Code “Hi5” when making a deposit between this coming Friday and next Tuesday (17th April). The bonus is automatically added to your bonus account and cleared at the rate of 120 Award Points per $5.00. You get thirty days in which to clear the bonus, by which time you may have already won a package to the Main Event at the WSOP. Good Luck.
