It’s no secret that every recreational poker player’s dream is to play at the World Series of Poker and win a bracelet. Who doesn’t wish they could be at the Rio Las Vegas this summer, battling it out at the felt, and being the last person standing in a high buy-in poker tournament? Well, here’s your chance: Bally’s Las Vegas and Planet Hollywood Las Vegas have announced that they will be holding satellites each week that can earn you seats in WSOP bracelet events!


Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Satellites

As of this evening, for as little as $60, poker players at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas can win their way into one of two bracelet events:

Players who win a seat into the Casino Employees event will also get an extra $100, while players who win seats into the Mega Satellite will get an additional $40.

Satellites will be held every Thursday night at 8 pm and every Friday at noon, until the start of the World Series at the end of next month. Two seats are being guaranteed for every $60 event being held.

Bally’s Las Vegas Satellites

Excluding the Ladies and Seniors events, there will be five open $1,000 bracelet events held this year at the World Series of Poker (Events 21, 33, 44, 54, and 59). For $75, poker players have a chance to win a seat in one of them at Bally’s Las Vegas. Every Wednesday night at 8 pm until the start of the WSOP, Bally’s will be running satellites with one $1,100 prize package guaranteed to the winner (seat + $100).

If you plan on attending the 43rd annual World Series of Poker this summer, we advise you to book your hotel room early! Cardplayer Lifestyle is pleased to offer you all the information you’ll need on how to book your Las Vegas Poker Vacation at the Rio and other fabulous hotels.
