Win your seat into the WSOP's $1 million buy-in event

5 April 2012

LAS VEGAS (PRESS RELEASE) -- It will be a historic event, as legends of poker, businessmen and philanthropists come together to be immortalized for playing in the highest stakes card game of all time.

But poker players who don’t have $1 million to enter The Big One for One Drop on July 1-3, 2012 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino still have an option to get into the field and win the projected eight-figure first prize. In fact, dreamers from all over the world will have a chance to get into the elite field for as little as $65!

Numerous officially licensed gaming properties around the United States have committed to host live step-satellite poker tournaments, each of which will culminate with a guaranteed seat into a $25,300 buy-in mega satellite at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on June 30, 2012 at 1:00 pm. The Rio’s culminating satellite will feature a guaranteed $1 million seat into the Big One for One Drop regardless of the number of entries. One seat will be created for every 40 entries in the June 30 satellite.

The program’s first opportunity occurs on Thursday, April 5 at 6:00 pm at the famed Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles, California. After a month-long promotion where some won free seats into this satellite and others won their way in via a $150 step satellite, any interested player can directly buy-in to the April 5 event for $500 and walk away with a seat into the $25,300 June 30 Mega Satellite. Included in each seat giveaway is airfare and accomodations to Las Vegas for the mega satellite.

Through June, similar step tournaments will be held around the country, each culminating in a mega satellite with a $25,300 guaranteed seat to the June 30 event, with airfare and hotel provided by Caesars Interactive Entertainment. To date, these 14 properties have confirmed their intentions to stage a Big One qualifying event.
