Quebec online poker players Vegas bound with WSOP Main Event prize packages.
Every year, Las Vegas attracts millions of tourists to its multifarious casino resorts. Some times of year are busier than others. Now that sports betting is being legalized across US States at an alarmingly rapid rate, the NFL Super Bowl and month-long NCAA March Madness aren’t likely to draw nearly so many gamblers to Sin City. But the world’s most prestigious poker festival won’t be losing momentum anytime soon.
I’m referring, of course, to the annual World Series of Poker that takes place every summer at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and
Casino. In case your head has been resting comfortably beneath a
rock these last few weeks, you probably know that the 2019 WSOP has
been underway for more than a week now. What you may not know is
that, thanks to the land-based and online gaming regulators at LotoQuebec, residents of Canada’s largest province have a
chance to win a genuine ‘Las Vegas Experience‘ worth
more than $15,000!
9 WSOP Main Event Prize Packages Up for Grabs
EspaceJeux.com, the digital gambling website of LotoQuebec, is
running a special promotion in its poker room. It began in April and
will continue through June 16, wherein members can compete in a range
of satellite competitions for a chance at winning an expenses-paid
trip to the 2019 WSOP Main Event.
The Quebec-regulated poker site will give away a total of 9 WSOP
prize packages before the promotion is over. Each package includes
the US$10,000 buy-in (approx CA$13,500) for the WSOP Main Event, plus
CA$2,000 deposited into each winner’s EspaceJeux account to cover
travel expenses, hotel accommodations, and spending cash along the
This year’s main event should be a spectacularly popular one. Every
year, the game’s greatest legends come out to vie for the most
coveted prize of all. But this year is stacking up to be the biggest
of them all. This year, every pro from all over the planet will turn
up in hopes of capturing the 50th Annual WSOP Championship
Note: If any player happens to win more than one prize
package – or if a winner will not be at least 21 years of age (the
legal age to gamble in US) by the tournament’s start date of July 3,
2019 – the player will instead receive $2,000 cash, plus $13,500
worth of tournament credits, each deposited into their EspaceJeux.com
The Main Event isn’t the only event worth winning a seat to in the
50th Annual WSOP. LotoQuebec will also be awarding a minimum of 60
prize packages to the WSOP Monster Stack, valued at
CA$3,250 each. That tournament kicks off June 21, featuring a
US$1,500 buy-in and a super deep starting stack of 50,000.
Qualifiers will each receive the U$1,500 buy-in plus CA$1,200 in
spending cash to reach Las Vegas and secure accommodations, with a
little spending cash left over. Like WSOP Main Event satellites, any
player skilled enough to qualify for 2 or more WSOP Monster Stack
prize packages will receive additional winnings in cash+tournament
