The $4,500 Package Includes:
- $1,000 entry to the WSOP Event #54 on July 2 or 3

There has been a big trend recently for side-event qualifiers to the World Series of Poker, and it is easy to understand why. The packages are treated much more like a holiday rather than like the hard grind of a championship event, and you will get to make the most of eight nights in one of the party capitals of the world.
The only requirement in this series is that you have a PokerNews referred 888 Poker account. There is no need to deposit to play in this series, however, if you do, you will also qualify for an exclusive first-deposit bonus of 100% up to $888.
Like the look of this? You can also participate in our exclusive $9,000 Risk Free WSOP promotion on 888 Poker which awards a further two $4,500 packages through a series of daily, Australian friendly timed, freerolls.
