Competing in the World Series of Poker is a dream for many poker players. It is the Mecca for many in the poker industry as the Main Event Championship title is a coveted title that many want to hold but few ever get the chance to. Average poker players may get to compete in the WSOP once in their lifetime if they save up enough money to pay the $10,000 buy-in or if they earn a seat via satellite but the odds are slim. However Party Poker is giving two players the chance to go to the WSOP and compete in the main event for the next twenty years.
Party Poker is hosting a WSOP for Life contest where two packages will be awarded worth $10,000 per year for the next twenty years. The $10,000 can be used each year for the competitor to participate in the WSOP each year.
One part of the contest will be a leader board event. Players will have from May 24th to June 20th to try and finish at the top of the special leader board. Players earn points through regular poker play and then the person who finishes in first place will win the first package. There will also be three packages available for this year’s main event for the WSOP as well as $50,000 for those who fall just short of winning the WSOP for Life package.
The second WSOP for Life package will go to the winner of a tournament which will be held on June 20th. The game will offer the special package as well as three packages for this year’s WSOP as well as $50,000 in prizes for players.
Players can earn their spot into this tournament by entering into one of Party Poker’s daily free rolls. Special qualifiers can also be bought in directly for just $35 to win a seat to the grand final to win a seat to the special tournament. The grand final can be bought into for just $320.
Party Poker released a statement which read: “this unbelievable package is every poker player’s dream prize as they don’t have to worry about qualifying for the main event ever again. They receive a main event package for life. As an extra bonus for 2010, Party Poker even pays the travel, accommodation and spending money for this year’s Las Vegas Extravaganza.”
So not only can players win a WSOP package for life, WSOP packages will be up for grabs for this year’s WSOP as well. So if you are not lucky enough to win WSOP entries for the next twenty years you could possibly win a package to this year’s WSOP. This is a unique opportunity for poker players at Party Poker as no poker site is offering packages to the WSOP for twenty years. Imagine being able to compete in the WSOP year after year…it’s a dream come true!
New players will also receive a $500 Bonus with Party Poker Bonus Code ‘FISH500‘
