If you've ever wanted to travel, PokerStars is giving you ways to do so, without paying for a ticket — or even to check your bag.
PokerStars continually offers satellites for all three of its poker tours, in Asia, Europe and Latin America, to play tournaments in places that usually make the front of travel brochures.
And those tournaments? They're for big, big money. There aren't many vacations that offer you a chance to come home with thousands more in your pocket than when you left. And if you say, "Las Vegas!" come on, let's not kid ourselves, OK?
Satellites are still running for the next two events on the tours, which are coming up fast, so act now and download PokerStars. You'll get an exclusive PokerWorks bonus of $25 free in addition to a 100 percent matching bonus up to $50. You must enter the marketing code of POKERWORKS upon registration and the bonus code of FIRST2008 upon your first deposit.
The next tournament on the PokerStars circuit stops in Manila on the Asia Pacific Poker Tour. That starts on Nov. 13 and runs until Nov. 16. After that, the tour will move on to the Grand Final in Sydney this December.
Satellites for the $5,000 package to Manila are running now. They include hotel accommodations, money for expenses and, of course, the buy-in to the tournament. But they won't last long, with the last chance qualifiers ending in just a couple of days.
Another tournament follows on the European Poker Tournament in Warsaw, which runs from Nov. 15-19. The Grand Final for that one takes place from April 28-May 3 in Monte Carlo.
Satellites to Prague, the tour's next stop, are running now for a $12,200 package that includes the buy-in, hotel and expenses.
Finally, did you find your way to San Jose on the Latin American Poker Tour? That tournament began Nov. 3. If not, the next stop is in Mexico, and you can look for satellites to that tournament soon.
As always, satellites to the main qualifiers start at about the price of a candy bar, or free, if you want to spend some of your Frequent Player Points you earn by playing tournaments and cash games on PokerStars.
You can start winning your way around the world, and the chance to earn more money to see whatever you want, on PokerStars today. Your ticket is waiting.
