|In a unique auction starting this week at PlayersOnly.com, a $12,000 World Series prize package could go for a buck or less.|
The popular casino, poker and sportsbetting site has begun taking bids in its World Series Low Bid Auction. The bidder making the lowest unique bid on the prize between now and the close of the auction in June will be able to purchase, for the amount of their winning bid, the deluxe travel package which includes airfare, accommodation and entry to the World Series of Poker.
“A chance to play in the Big One, that’s every poker player’s dream,” said PlayersOnly.com Brand Manager David Anderson. “Vegas… World Series… Talk about the perfect place to unleash the player in you. It’d be great seeing one of our guys at the Final Table.”
To win the auction, bidders must make the lowest unique bid, meaning that If they were the only one to bid one penny, they’d get the $12,000 prize for a cent.
“Last month,” explained Anderson, ”We did a Low Bid Auction for a plasma TV. The winner of that auction ended up getting a $1500 TV for just fifty cents.”
