GGPoker Opens Road to Vegas with $1 WSOP Main Event Satellites

3 min read

The 2022 World Series of Poker is just 54 days away and, with COVID restrictions almost a distant memory, GGPoker is ready to take a team of international qualifiers to Las Vegas.

The WSOP’s official partner launched its Road to Vegas satellites this week. Although other operators can offer Vegas prize packages, GGPoker is the only international platform that can offer direct qualifiers for the WSOP Main Event.

Anyone who wins one of this year’s Road to Vegas packages will get a seat in the $10,000 Main Event, their expenses covered, and access to exclusive events.

GGPoker’s WSOP satellites are already underway. Buy-ins start at $1 and there are dozens of WSOP prize packages up for grabs each week until the end of June.

Those who successfully navigate the qualification road to Vegas will receive the following:

  • Direct entry into the $10K WSOP Main Event
  • Seven nights’ accommodation at Bally’s Hotel & Casino
  • $1,200 to cover travel expenses (flights have to be booked through
  • Entry to GGPoker’s last longer promotion (the winner gets a WSOPE prize package)
  • GGPoker merchandise
  • Access to the GGPoker Platinum Lounge at the WSOP

GGPoker ambassador, Daniel Negreanu, said he’s looking forward to playing alongside qualifiers from “every corner of the planet.” Even without GGPoker’s Road to Vegas promotion, that’s a noteworthy thing to say after two years’ worth of COVID restrictions.

Las Vegas open to all

COVID-19 meant the 2020 WSOP had to take place online for the first time in its history. Last year’s series did eventually take place in Las Vegas. However, the dates were changed, and players had to comply with a variety of safety measures.

Now, with the US open to international travelers, no mask mandates in Nevada, and the requirement to show proof of vaccination dropped, the 2022 WSOP will be back to normal. That means GGPoker can take a sizable cohort of qualifiers to the series.

What’s more, the removal of restrictions means players from outside of the US won’t have to jump through as many hoops to play in poker’s biggest tournament. The combination of these two things could result in the WSOP and the Main Event being the biggest ever.
