For anyone who makes it to Las Vegas and the famed partypoker lounge at ARIA Resort & Casino this summer there is a major online element to this new WPT500 event at the fantastic ARIA Resort & Casino. As proud sponsors, partypoker are also providing further incentives to ALL players.
- The entire official final table of partypoker presents: WPT500 at ARIA Resort & Casino will receive a buy-in for the July 2015 event and hotel accommodation at ARIA Resort & Casino on top of their share of the prize pool.
- The overall event champion on July 9 also gets an additional $2,000 package for WPT500 in Nottingham when the WPT returns to the UK in November at Dusk Till Dawn.
Qualifiers Like Never Before!
We’re expecting to see over 100 seats for partypoker presents: WPT500 at ARIA Resort & Casino to be won through online qualifiers.
The majority of seats will be won via partypoker.com but there will also be significant contributions from online satellites being run on most of the bwin.party Group’s global sites including Belgium (bwin.be), Denmark (partypoker.dk), France (partypoker.fr) and Italy (GiocoDigitale.it).
There will certainly be an international feel to the exclusive online qualifier party at Haze from 10.30pm on Saturday July 5.
And Exclusive Access Like Never Before!
It is just not about the party though and the haze the next morning from the night out at Haze! Online qualifiers also get access to the exclusive partypoker lounge and opportunities to pick up the ‘all important’ coffee, croissants, beers and bar snacks!
There will also be a number of open customer feedback sessions and opportunities to win special prizes such as the very special Monster partypoker headphones just like guys have been handing out via their special Social Media Freerolls week after week now!
Killian Braud Is Our First Winner!
The very first player to secure their seat for this event was 26-year-old Killian Braud from Quiberon in France who qualified online through partypoker.fr. “I’m super excited as it is the first time I have ever been to the US and Vegas,” said Killian. “I have previously played on the WPT in France and Brussels but going stateside to the WPT500 is taking it to a new level,” he added.
It’s A Win Win For Y’All!
Like I mentioned in a recent interview: “With the WPT500 you get everything you expect from the WPT with a cheaper buy-in. The qualifiers are great because you can win a main package including accommodation or choose to qualify for just a seat if you are already in town and have somewhere to stay.”
How do players qualify online? Two main ways:
$1,700 WPT 500 package
$500 + $65 WPT500 buy-in. $500 travel and spending money. Four night’s hotel accommodation at ARIA Resort & Casino and hospitality.
$565 WPT500 buy-in only package
$500 + $65 WPT500 buy-in only.
Best of all it is possible to qualify online for this WPT500 experience from as little as just $1. Where this differs to your typical online qualifier for a live event is that players can lock up as many as six entries to have a crack at the $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool!
What’s next? Look out for the WPT500 landing in Nottingham in the UK in November!
Good luck at the tables,
Mike Sexton and the partypoker team
