Have you been following PokerNews’ coverage of the 2017 World Series of Poker and wished that we were writing about you? Well, thanks to PokerNews’ relationship with 888poker, you could be jetting off to Las Vegas to play in the Crazy Eights event where first place is guaranteed to be at least $888,888.
The Crazy Eights event takes place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas from July 1-4, costs $888 to buy into and guarantees the eventual champion will win a minimum of $888,888 and, of course, a coveted gold WSOP bracelet. Sounds superb, right?
You could be playing in this exciting WSOP for free thanks to PokerNews and 888poker because on June 14, 888poker is hosting a freeroll where the winner bags themselves a Crazy Eights package with the players finishing in second-through-tenth place winning satellite tickets.
This PokerNews-exclusive freeroll, which is called the PokerNews WSOP Package, is only open to 888poker players who have the password "PNWSOP". The PokerNews WSOP Package freeroll shuffles up and deals at 7:00 p.m. CET on June 14 so long as there are at least 10 players registered.
Everyone sits down with 3,000 chips and there is a total of $3,300 to play for, including a Crazy Eights package valued at $3,000. The lucky winner of the freeroll will be awarded a WSOP 2017 Crazy Eights Package, which contains:
- Three nights stay at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino (July 1-4)
- The $888 buy-in to the Crazy Eights Event, which is number 60 on the schedule
- $1,200 for travel and expenses paid directly into your 888poker account
- 888live poker kit
It is not every day that you have the chance to play in a WSOP event for free so you should be jumping at the chance to head to Las Vegas for no financial outlay; you never know, you may return home as a WSOP champion.
