WSOP Mania at Full Tilt

Full Tilt Poker has been all about the big events and big players since they're inception, so it's no suprise to me that they are going all out to send players to the WSOP! Here is some information on what they are doing!

Last year, our WSOP promotions were an incredible success. During the Main Event, Full Tilt Poker had the biggest presence of any online poker site. It's fair to say that we took Las Vegas and our competitors by surprise. Of course, we can't take that for granted this year. Far from sitting on our laurels, we analyzed our entire WSOP strategy, and fine tuned our tournaments and games to maximize their impact.

On February 15th, we launched Main Event Mania with five components. Last week, we added another, King of the WSOP. In the coming months, we'll introduce other promotions to keep the bandwagon going.

$1 Million WSOP Main Event Seat Giveaway

This year, we're giving away $1 million worth of WSOP Main Event seats for free. We will hold five monthly $200K WSOP 20 Seat Freerolls starting in March. The top 20 finishers in each tournament will all win a seat to the Main Event in Las Vegas. 20 seats a month for five months – that's a total of 100 seats!

Players will have several ways to qualify for the monthly Freerolls without ever buying in:

Earn 10,000 Full Tilt Points for that month – and players get to keep their points.
Be one of our top WSOP point earners for that month. Players earn WSOP points in qualifying WSOP satellites.
Daily Freerolls that send players to the monthly Freerolls.
We want players to know that free really means free at Full Tilt Poker.

$10 Million WSOP Main Event Mania™

This promotion is an overlay available to anyone who wins their WSOP Main Event seat from Full Tilt Poker. If one of our Main Event seat winners goes on to win a spot at the final table, we'll reward them with $50K. If they finish in the top three, we'll give them $100K. If they win the whole tournament, we'll hand over $10 million, in addition to the projected $10 million Main Event top prize.

The message here is simple: With an extra $10 million up for grabs, why would you play anywhere else?

Weekly $1,000 WSOP Main Event Seat Qualifier

Every Monday at 9PM ET until July 10th, we're running a Weekly $1,000 WSOP Main Event Seat Qualifier. This tournament's special distinction is that a player's chance of winning a Main Event seat is higher than in any other tournament we offer. This event is designed so that for every 12 players who enter, one will walk away with a WSOP Main Event seat.

Players can buy in buy in directly for $1,000 + $60, or satellite in for just $4 + $.40 or 50 Full Tilt points. Again, winners will receive a $12K prize package to the Main Event.

Weekly WSOP Main Event Guarantees

From now until July 13th, Full Tilt Poker is running at least two WSOP Main Event Guarantees per week. These tournaments will send more than 100 players to the WSOP Main Event. The buy in is $200 + $16, and satellites start at just $4 + $.40 or 50 Full Tilt Points.

King of the WSOP

With all the great players on our site and so many seats up for grabs, we fully expect a number of Tilters to win more than one Main Event seat, and, whoever wins the most, will be crowned the King of the WSOP.

The King will receive first-class airfare to the Main Event in Las Vegas, an upgraded suite at the Rio, and 24 hour per day access to a limousine. In addition to the royal treatment in Vegas, when the King begins his one-year reign at Full Tilt Poker, we'll crown the avatar of his or her choice. So, whether they're a donkey or a shark, it's good to be the King at Full Tilt Poker.
