Despite the fact that it is home to a large percentage of poker players, the nation of Italy has never hosted a live World Poker Tour event. But all of this is set to change when the WPT hosts its first ever live tournament in Venice, Italy during May. What’s really cool about WPT Venice 2009 is that it will be held in the Casino di Venezia which is situated right on Venice’s Grand Canal and is one of the most unique and stunning casinos in the world.
That being said, this is definitely an event which you will want to be a part of and Tower Gaming is giving you the change to play in WPT Venice absolutely free. Tower is awarding $8,000 WPT Venice prize packages that will cover the Main Event buy-in, hotel accommodations, and will provide extra money for plane tickets as well as spending money.
To win one of the $8,000 WPT Venice prize packages, you first need to sign up for Tower Gaming using the TAFFPWORKS bonus code. This will enable you to compete for the prize packages as well as earn the 300% deposit bonus up to $300. After signing up with the TAFFPWORKS bonus code, you can either buy directly into the Main Event Qualifier for $300 +$20 or you can enter one of the many poker satellites that Tower Gaming is currently running.
What’s great about these satellites is that some of them only cost $1.20 to enter which is really cheap considering you could win an $8,000 prize package out of the deal! To find these satellites you just need to go to the Tower Gaming lobby once you’re a member and look for the starting times and dates.
Besides being able to win $8,000 WPT Venice prize packages, you can also earn a $17,000 WSOP prize package at Tower Gaming too. These $17k prize packages are for the WSOP Main Event and they’re absolutely huge compared to the rest of the industry. That’s because the majority of poker rooms out there only offer $12k or $13k prize packages which leaves little left over for hotel accommodations and spending money. But with $7,000 left over from the Tower Gaming Main Event packages, you’re guaranteed to have a great time in Las Vegas while staying at the Venetian Plazzo Hotel!
Just like with the $8k WPT Venice prize packages, there are lots of satellites and qualifiers currently running for the $17k WSOP packages too. Once again, you can get into these satellites for as little as $1.20 and you can buy in for more if you want to skip to a higher satellite level. Most of the other satellites for this event cost between $2.20 and $30 + $3 so variety is not a problem. Direct buy-ins for the WSOP Main Event qualifier are $300 + $20 if you want to get right into the big tournament.
Both the WPT Venice tournament and the WSOP will be coming up soon so you’ll want to hurry and win your prize packages before it’s too late!
