The 2009 WSOP Main Event featured a total prize pool of over $61 million and Joe Cada took home the top prize of $8,546,435. With so much cash involved in the WSOP, it’s no wonder everybody wants to earn a $10,000 seat for the Main Event. And the good thing is that you can get your WSOP Main Event for as little as $1 at SportsBook Poker.
SportsBook is currently running satellites and tournaments where $12,500 WSOP Main Event prize packages are being awarded. The $12,500 prize packages not only cover the $10,000 Main Event buy-in, but they also provide an additional $2,500 for hotel expenses and spending money – this will guarantee that you have a good time in Las Vegas! Three players have already won these prize packages (“m4djo3,” “kurt watkins,” and “BigGameJames”) and many more prize packages are scheduled to be given away.
If you’re wondering exactly how you can win your own $12,500 WSOP prize package from SportsBook, it all starts by downloading SportsBook Poker through PokerWorks; this will ensure that you get a huge 100% deposit bonus up to $1,000!
After you’ve downloaded SportsBook, you need to go to the lobby and click on the “Tournaments” and then “Satellite” which will show all of the satellites and qualifiers for the Word Series of Poker prize packages. WSOP qualifiers and poker satellites are very easy to find since they are marked in purple.
What’s great about the satellites for this event is that anyone can play since the buy-ins suit every bankroll. As mentioned before, some of the satellites are as cheap as $1! Of course you can skip the satellites and go straight to the main qualifier which is $350 + $24, and at least one $12,500 WSOP Main Event prize package will be guaranteed.
You may not have to pay any money at all to enter qualifiers for the SportsBook WSOP packages since you can also use Gold Chips to buy-in. To earn Gold Chips, you need to play in ring games and poker tournaments at SportsBook Poker so that you get Frequent Player Points. After you earn 120 FPP’s, you will receive a Gold Chip that can be used to buy into the WSOP prize package satellites – or any other tournament for that matter.
As you might expect, the more Gold Chips you have, the more poker tournaments you’ll be able to buy into any variety of tournament limits. In addition to buying into tourneys, you can also use your Gold Chips to purchase merchandise from the Player Rewards Store. Some of the things you can get from the Player Rewards Store include Nintendo’s Wii, digital cameras, iPhones, and poker room accessories. As long as you’re a frequent player at SportsBook you will be stacking up points and ready to play for a WSOP prize package and shop the Player Rewards Store.
