Leading online poker site UltimateBet.com is giving players the chance to compete at this year’s World Series Of Poker (WSOP) for an investment of only ten cents.
As part of its tenth anniversary festivities, UltimateBet.com is holding its Step Tournament giving players a shot at qualifying for this year's $10,000 buy-in WSOP Main Event, alongside $2,000 for travel and accommodation, in only ten simple steps.
The popular site is also sweetening the pot with a tenth anniversary reward that would double the riches for this year's champion. Wear the UltimateBet.com logo throughout the Main Event, have the ultimate fortune of beating out thousands of other hopefuls to pocket the estimated ten million dollar first prize payday and you’ll also snare a ten million dollar ten-year sponsorship deal with the site that is already home to legendary professional players Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke.
If that wasn’t enough, UltimateBet.com is committed to giving back to the many loyal players who have remained its staunchest supporters over the years. The first ten players to conquer all WSOP Step Tournaments will be set to receive a bonus $8,500 2009 Aruba Poker Classic Main Event package that includes the $5,500 entry and $3,000 towards travel and accommodation along with a ticket to the 2009 WSOP Championship event.
'Step tournaments will see UltimateBet.com qualifying record numbers of online players for this year's WSOP and, with our ten million dollar player contract on the table, we're excited about the prospect of discovering poker's next big thing,' said Annie Duke, Card Room Consultant for UltimateBet.com.
'Ten years on, we aim to grow our reputation as the home of the game's most decorated champions and our standing as the top choice for the world's best poker players.'
