Once again, [geolink href=””]888 Poker[/geolink] – which now has more than five million signed-up customers – will be providing players with incredible WSOP packages valued at $15,500 that include the $10,000 entry fee to the main event, $2,000 for travel arrangements, $500 spending money (to be given in cash once in Las Vegas) and eight nights’ luxury accommodation in a top-class hotel in Las Vegas.

Additionally, all winners from the bi-weekly tournament will be given access to the special 888 Poker players’ lounge – which will provide breakfast and drinks all day, as well as a pool table, Xbox games consoles and a television – every day of the 43rd staging of the WSOP, an 888 Poker Live Event Merchandise Kit, and an invitation to an exclusive VIP event.

You never know, while enjoying the VIP occasion, you might just bump into stars such as Team 888 Poker Pros Shane Warne – the Australian cricket legend – and Tyler Bonkowsi, as well as Sam Holden and Anton Makiievskyi, who are both November Niners from last year’s main event, and possibly even Santiago Canizares, Bojan Gledovich, Darren Woods and Steve Day.

WSOP Satellites Start at Just $1.10

Incredibly, first-step buy-ins for WSOP satellites start at an extremely low $1.10 and are staged every 120 minutes at 888 Poker, although players have the option of buying directly into the WSOP qualifiers that are held every second Sunday at 20:05 (GMT).

Team 888 Poker Pros certainly enjoyed an incredible 42nd WSOP last summer, when Bonkowsi and Woods picked up gold bracelets at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Sin City, while Englishman Holden finished ninth for $782,115 and Ukrainian Makiievskyi took eighth spot for $1,010,015 in a main event which came to a conclusion in November with German student Pius Heinz’s success.

Canada’s Bonkowsi took down event #14, a $3,000 buy-in Limit Hold’em tournament, for $220,817, while England’s Woods pocketed $213,431 for winning event #19 – a $2,500 buy-in Six-Handed Limit Hold’em competition.

Take The First Step to Glory in Vegas

That’s a lot to live up to. But the first step on the path to glory – and maybe even $8 million-plus in prize money – for WSOP hopefuls is to get on over to 888 Poker, sign up for Poker News Report’s exclusive [geolink href=””]888 Poker first-deposit bonus[/geolink] of up to $600, as well as an additional $8, then work your way through the satellites or skip to any one of the Sunday qualifiers.[/isGeoAllowed]

The World Series of Poker 2012 Qualifiers possess $525 buy-ins, so it’s not for the cash-strapped among us – but could well be worth it if your name is up in lights come autumn of this year when the main event champion is revealed.
