Spin Your Way to Vegas with 888Poker

Spin Your Way to Vegas with 888PokerOver the next two weeks, 888Poker is giving away fifty-five packages to compete in the World Series of Poker in its “Spin Your Way to Vegas” promotion.

Almost every online poker site is offering its players the opportunity to qualify for events at the World Series of Poker through various promotions, but surely none are easier to participate in than 888Poker´s “Spin Your Way to Vegas” promotion.

Over the next two weeks (up until June 12th), players will be set specific missions each day. On completion of the missions, they will be invited to spin the “Vegas Roller” – a wheel of fortune type game that will award one of five different prizes.

The prizes awarded are most likely to be satellite tickets for qualifiers into one of 888Poker´s three online “Crazy Eights Finals” or a seat in the one of the Finals themselves. But up to forty-four lucky players will be awarded a $3,000 package to the WSOP Crazy Eights event, and up to five very lucky players will win a $12,500 package to the WSOP Main Event.

Spin the Vegas Roller up to Ten Times Each Day

Players can increase their chances of winning one of the top prizes by completing their mission multiple times. The missions include:

  • Win a Pot with a Specific Opening Hand
  • Win a Specific Number of Hands
  • Play in a Specific Number of Tournaments
  • Finish in the Money in any 888Poker Tournament

If, for example, the mission was to win a pot with an opening hand of pocket Kings, you could continue playing cash games of NL Texas Hold´em at 888Poker´s fast-fold SNAP tables until you had won ten pots with pocket Kings.

The pots do not have to go to showdown in order to count for the promotion, so in theory it should not take a huge commitment of your time or money (minimum qualifying stake is just $0.02/$0.05) to win the maximum number of spins of the “Vegas Roller”.

What If I Win a Satellite Ticket?

If the Vegas Roller awards you a $3,000 satellite ticket or 3x $3,000 satellite ticket, you will have won a seat (or three seats) in 888Poker´s daily “Vegas Rush” tournament. These take place at 00:05am, 12:05pm and 7:05pm each day (all times GMT) and the top 100 players in each satellite progress onto a Crazy Eights Final

If you are awarded an $8,000 ticket – or you are one of the top 100 players in a “Vegas Rush” tournament – you automatically win a seat in one of the Crazy Eight Finals that take place on 1st, 8th and 15th June. Each Crazy Eights Final guarantees a minimum of two $3,000 packages to play in the WSOP Crazy Eight event in Las Vegas from 1st to 5th July and has $2,000 in cash prizes for the runners-up.

What the Packages Include

If you win one of the forty-four Crazy Eight packages available through the Vegas Roller or one of the six Crazy Eight packages up for grabs on the Crazy Eight Finals, your $3,000 prize includes four nights´ accommodation at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, your entry into the WSOP Crazy Eights event and $1,400 towards your travelling expenses.

If you are one of the five players who are awarded a Main Event package with a spin of the Vegas Roller, your $12,500 package includes five nights’ accommodation at the Vdara Hotel from 10th to 15th July, your entry into the $10,000 buy-in WSOP Main Event and $1,500 towards your travel expenses. Every winner will also win an 888Poker travel kit and be invited to a massive welcome party on arrival.
