Hello and welcome to this week's edition of the PartyPoker Weekly where we have details on how you can play at the 2012 WSOP for free, give you information about the upcoming Spring Million, the penultimate day of the amazing Card Rush promotion and Vince Van Patten talking about fake beards and wading in fountains looking for change!
Win a 2012 WSOP Main Event Seat For Free
2012 World Series of Poker Main Event satellites begin today on PartyPoker, and it is possible to win a $14,000 package for absolutely nothing — zip, nada! Imagine playing in poker's biggest and most prestigious tournament knowing that it has not cost you a single cent to do so!
Every Sunday at 14:50 ET, until Jun. 17, there will be a $700+$50 WSOP Satellite that will award one in every 20 players a $14,000 package to the 2012 WSOP. Each package consists of:
- $10,000 WSOP Main Event Buy-in
- $2,000 Spending money
- Hotel accommodation in Las Vegas for 10 nights
Obviously not everyone can afford to enter a $750 satellite so PartyPoker is running sub-satellites. There will be a daily freeroll where the top 25 players gain entry into the daily $2 WSOP Sub Qualifier Speed Rebuy. Here a seat to the twice-daily $75+$5 WSOP Satellite Qualifier is awarded for every $80 in the prize pool. In the $75+$5 satellite, one in 10 players will win a seat to Sunday's $700+$50 WSOP Satellite.
You really could be jetting off to Las Vegas to play for millions of dollars for absolute nothing!
Win a Share of $1,000,000!
Do you fancy winning a share of a massive $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool and doing so for as little as $1? Then the Spring $1 Milllion is just the tournament you are looking for.
The $600+$40 Spring Million kicks off at 13:30 ET on May 6, and it promises to be an amazing tournament. Due to the sheer amount of satellites running, costing between $1 and $172, there are going to be plenty of weaker players in the field meaning it could be your best chance yet of that elusive big score.
Card Rush Promotion Ends Feb. 28!
The fantastic Card Rush promotion is drawing to a close but you still have until midnight on Feb. 28 to get your hands on a range of free prizes. At time of writing there are around 181,000 cards remaining, each of them awarding a prize ranging from 10 PartyPoints, $1 in cash and a $2,000 freeroll up to 25,000 PartyPoints, $5,000 in cash and a $20,000 freeroll!
Some will also award Card Rush Race points, up to 20 per card, which are used to determine your position on the Card Rush Race leaderboard. Here the top 200 Card Rush Points earners will pick up between $100 and $9,000 in free cash plus every 20th spot from 220 to 2,000 will be given $50 so it is not too late to grab some free money!
You will receive one Card Rush card for every 15 PartyPoints you earn, though your first card can be snapped up for just five PartyPoints. You can collect up to 50 Card Rush cards every day but if the 181,000 remaining cards are awarded between now and Feb. 28 there will be no more available go get involved right now!
Win a WPT Vienna Package
Vienna has traditionally been one of the biggest stops of all the European legs of the World Poker Tour and you can be part of this year's action by winning a value-packed $7,000 package on PartyPoker.
Last year 555 players packed into the Montesino Pokertainment Centre in Vienna, creating a prize pool of €1,776,000! The lion's share of this was won by Dimitry Gromov who picked up €447,840 after defeating Maksim Kolosov heads-up for the title. This year we could be writing about you taking down a mammoth-sized first place prize.
Satellites will be running until March 25 with each $7,000 consisting of:
- $4,700 WPT Vienna Main Event buy-in
- $900 spending money
- Hotel accommodation for six nights
