888poker Offers $5M Bonus to Main Event Winner
Winning the World Series of Poker Main Event is a life-changing experience. Not only does the winner of this tournament etch their name in poker history, but they're awarded with a high seven-figure score.
This summer, thousands of players will head to Las Vegas to take part in the 2016 WSOP, for which we at 888poker, the 2nd biggest online poker room in the world, is once again the official sponsor. We're offering a “Supersize ME” WSOP package which includes a spectacular $5,000,000 bonus to the winner of the Main Event, on top of the WSOP cash prize, making it an eight-figure score.
The winner of this unique Promotion could take home the largest cash prize ever in Poker history.
For example, had this promotion existed last year, our “Supersize ME” qualifiers would have had the opportunity to win the $7,683,346 top prize and a $5,000,000 bonus, for a total prize of $12,683,346. That would have been more than the $12,000,000 Jamie Gold won for topping a field of 8,773 players in the 2006 WSOP Main Event.
The Supersize ME package to the WSOP 2016 includes the Main Event buy-in, flights, VIP airport transportation & a VIP room at the Vdara Hotel. The Promotion is limited in that only those who have not been ranked in the GPI top 100 during the past 5 years, nor finished in the top 50 of a previous WSOP Main Event are eligible for the $5,000,000 bonus prize.
"Winning the WSOP Main Event is a life-changing experience for anyone and the prize money is huge," said Gold. "This offer from 888 could help the next winner surpass my $12,000,000 prize. I think it's wonderful and would be about time someone won more in the Main Event. I've been excited for that to happen and if the archaic laws banning online poker in the U.S. ever change I'm confident the WSOP Main Event prize will exceed $25,000,000."
For a chance to win the package of a lifetime players need to register for the $5,000,000 Supersize ME $600 buy-in tournament and play on any Sunday between 29/05/16 – 12/06/16 at 19:05 GMT.
If you win a package, you'll be one of the lucky players competing in the WSOP Main Event with a chance at a $5,000,000 bonus! The winner will also receive a three-year contract as a Team 888poker Ambassador.
