The grandest live poker tour, the World Series of Poker, is set to make a full-fledged return after a hiatus of 26 months. With just seven days remaining, the officials are leaving no stone unturned to make sure its a huge one.
To ensure players have a shot at the live events from the comfort of their homes, WSOP.com will be running online satellites for the next day’s live tournament everyday throughout the series. In addition, there will be a guaranteed $10,000 seat to the Main Event every day in October.
- Massive Value100% deposit bonus up to $1000 + $50 in free play
- The only online poker network that spans across multiple states
- Compete for real WSOP bracelets and rings in official online events from your own home
- Frequent reload bonuses and lucrative monthly promotions
Kicking off from today is a satellite to Event #1: Casino Employee awarding one guaranteed $500 seat. The satellite costs $10 to enter and is structured as a rebuy/add-on tournament, giving away one seat no matter the turnout.
Needless to say, since the satellite guarantees a seat to the Casino Employee event, players must have a valid casino ID or pay stub to take part in this satellite.
Half an hour later, players will have an opportunity to win a seat to the marquee event: $10K WSOP Main Event. The satellite has a buy-in of $215 and again one seat is guaranteed.
Satellites to the $5 Million Guaranteed “Reunion”
On Sunday night, the operator will host an online satellite to The Reunion event, giving away 50 seats to it and each worth $500. The satellite costs just $30 to enter and is also structured as a rebuy/add-on event. Players who win a seat to this event will have the option to choose the starting flight based on availability.
The Reunion is one of the star-studded events of this year’s schedule and is expected to attract thousands of players. It is also the only tournament in the 2021 schedule that boasts a guarantee of $5 million.
The event takes place at Rio from October 1 to 3 featuring three Day 1 flights.
More Satellites Expected Across NV, NJ and PA Soon
Further satellites will be deployed on the WSOP.com real-money client in the coming days. The organizers are also expected to host online satellites on the WSOP Pennsylvania platform.
In addition to satellites to the live events, WSOP.com will also be spreading satellites to the upcoming online bracelet series that will run accompany the live series. A further eleven online bracelet events will run—ten for the players in New Jersey and Nevada, and one for Pennsylvania residents. Buy-ins start at $400 and go up to $7777.
The WSOP.com will also be running the fan-favorite promotion 25 Seat Scramble on two occasions, with each promising a prize pool no less than $250,000, allowing for players to take their shot at getting the Main for a $215 buy-in. The tournament will be available to players in New Jersey and Nevada and will run on October 31 and November 2.
Important Points to Satellite Hopefuls—Including Vaccination Requirements
Players who have won a WSOP satellite can claim their seats starting September 30, the same day the richest festival kicks off at Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. The winners will receive WSOP tournament buy-in chips and they can claim them at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.
Players can use buy-in chips for any bracelet event unless if they win a satellite for events with buy-ins of $400, $600, $800 or $1111 in which case they will be directly registered to the event.
Players are also reminded that they must have a valid government-issued photo ID, proof of full vaccination against Covid-19 and a Caesars Rewards card to claim their tournament seats.
Furthermore, all tournament tickets won are only valid in Nevada and are not transferable. These tournament tickets will expire a year after the date granted and any tickets not used by that period will be forfeited. For further information, players can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
As per terms and conditions, players will also have the option to receive online tournament tickets instead of a seat to the 2021 WSOP live series. They can do so by contacting the support at their respective states.
Hundreds of Players Have Already Won Seats to the 2021 WSOP Main Event
Although various other operators are offering packages to the WSOP series—many of which without using the brand name—only WSOP.com and GGPoker are the official poker rooms offering official seats to the 2021 World Series of Poker.
So far, WSOP.com has awarded over 100 WSOP tournament seats for 2021. These satellites are available for buy-ins of $215 and $1050.
International operator GGPoker has also been running the “Road to Vegas” campaign, giving away seats to the $10K Main Event. At the time of writing, 81 players have won their seats to the Main on GGPoker while over 20 players have won on the operator’s home-club-based poker app ClubGG.
More seats will be awarded in the coming days, so there will be plenty of opportunities for all to qualify for the 52nd Annual World Series of Poker.
