PartyPoker Adds Daily WSOP Main Event Packages

May 13, 2011

Despite what happened last month to the online poker community, online poker rooms are trying to move forward and have finally added World Series of Poker packages to their promotions. Beginning May 15th, PartyPoker will give away at least one Main Event package for the 2011 WSOP valued at $14K each day.

This year, the WSOP promotion at PartyPoker is similar to past years. Since PartyPoker wasn’t in the US market when Black Friday went down, they are hardly affected by the shake up in the US at all. Therefore, it’s business as usual for them, since they pulled out of the US online poker market years ago in 2006 when the UIGEA was passed.

There are a couple of ways to earn a PartyPoker WSOP package. Multi-table tournament satellites are one way and sit and gos are another. Buy into one of these satellites for as low as $2. Then move your way up through the qualifiers. The lower you start off, the lower your buy-in. So if you want to start higher up in the chain, just buy into a more expensive satellite.

If you want to get in on the direct and daily Main Event package tournaments, these will cost you $750. They run once a day through May 30th. Each day, the winner of this tournament will be guaranteed a Main Event seat, so in essence, if you only have to play in one, you could win a Main Event package for $750, which is a great deal.

The $14K PartyPoker WSOP package includes the $10K Main Event buy-in of course, in addition to an 8-night stay in a Las Vegas hotel, and $2K spending money for any other expenses you may incur.

New depositors will even earn a freeroll ticket good for a satellite that feeds into a WSOP qualifier, meaning you could go to the WSOP for free.

Weekly qualifiers are also running through June 19th. The 2011 WSOP Main Event will begin on July 7th and run through July 19th when the final nine will be determined, and then play will resume in November, as usual.
