Online casino offers WSOP Europe prize.
The ever-growing online gambling giant, Bodog Entertainment, is preparing for its autumn launch into Europe with a spectacular offer to poker players from the U.K., Ireland, and Western Europe.
There will be six chances to win a place on Team Bodog for the inaugural WSOP Europe tournament, which starts on September 6 in London. The Main Event, a No-Limit Texas Hold’em Championship will run at ‘The Casino’ in Leicester Square September 10-16.
The prize includes the £10,000 tournament buy-in, as well as 5-star hotel accommodation, travel expenses and a chauffeur to whisk them around the capital.
“Poker at Bodog isn't just a game, it's a lifestyle,” says Calvin Ayre, Founder of Bodog Entertainment. “We're giving European poker players the chance to taste the highlife and join Team Bodog playing against the stars of the poker world in London, which is quickly becoming the coolest place in the world to play poker. We're looking forward to hitting European shores; this is just a taste of what's to come from Bodog.”
Registered players should look out for the tournaments named 'Euro Main Event' on the Bodog.com website. There are different levels of tournament depending on a player's budget. Semi-finals take place only on Sunday, August 19.
This could well be a shot at the big time for one of the six lucky winners. Last year star Bodog player Leif Force used his Bodog earnings to buy himself a seat at the WSOP in Las Vegas where he earned $1,154,527.
The qualifying tournaments for the WSOP Europe run until Sunday August 19 at Bodog.com.
