Players invited to compete in month-long contest for multiple shots at free WSOP* seats
Miami, FL (PRWeb) April 24, 2008 – They say you can’t put a price on the World Series of Poker* experience. One online poker site is taking that sentiment a little too literally by handing out a large number of Main Event seats for free. UltimateBet.com today announced a new promotion that solidifies the poker site as the best place to win a free seat in the series.
“This is an historic promotion for fans of the world’s greatest game,” stated UltimateBet spokesperson George MacLean. “We’re handing out loads of Main Event seats and online poker fans can win one just by doing what they love – playing poker.”
Annie Duke, UltimateBet’s new Cardroom Consultant, created the Ultimate Main Event Giveaway promotion so that more online poker players are able to experience Texas Hold’em on the world’s biggest stage alongside poker’s best pros.
To qualify for the promotion,UltimateBet players must simply play in any real-money poker Sit ‘n Go, ring game or multi-table tournament at UltimateBet.com between April 24th and May 23rd and climb their way up the Main Event Giveaway leader board.
At the end of the qualifying period, the player who has earned the most RAI$E status points will automatically secure a $12,000 Main Event prize package featuring the $10,000 buy-in and $2,000 for travel accommodations.
But that’s just the start of UltimateBet’s Main Event generosity. Players ranking 2nd through 70th on the leader board will play in an exclusive freeroll that features a prize pool of seven additional $12,000 Main Event packages.
In an effort to send as many players as possible to Las Vegas for the world’s most prestigious poker tournament, UltimateBet is opening the floodgates to even more Main Event seats through a series of freerolls. On Saturday May 24th, the online poker site is holding a 25-seat Guaranteed Tournament where at least 25 Main Event prize packages will be won. Players ranking 71st through 225th on the leader board will win their spot in the $500+30 tournament.
