The online poker site at Americas Cardroom has announced that this weekend will see it hosting a mega satellite competition with twelve prize packages into the main event of the upcoming Peru edition of the Latin Series Of Poker (LSOP) up for grabs.
The $55 buy-in online poker mega satellite from the US-friendly online poker domain is scheduled to take place on Sunday from 6pm New York time and will see a dozen competitors walk away with packages valued at $3,500 for the $500,000 guaranteed land-based Texas hold‘em tournament set to begin from Lima on May 20.
Americas Cardroom stated that each prize package will include the $1,650 main event LSOP Peru buy-in along with $800 for airfare and a six-night stay with breakfasts at the Sol De Oro Hotel with a guest. In addition, winners will receive a gift bag, airport transportation and access to a special welcome party.
“This mega satellite will give players an opportunity to travel to an exotic Latin American destination and compete for life-changing money,” said Michael Harris from Americas Cardroom.
“For just $55 players can secure their $1,650 buy-in and transportation and accommodations in Peru.
“Players from Americas Cardroom look forward to the LSOP tournaments in Peru and the Punta Cana Poker Classic each year as it gives them an opportunity to meet and play with players they’ve competed against over the years online. The LSOP offers poker players a great tournament with a huge prize pool along with a poker vacation in an exotic destination.”
For those hoping to avoid the $55 mega satellite buy-in, Americas Cardroom declared that it is running daily super satellite events set to cost only 50 cents.
“Additional satellites for the event will be running twice weekly on Americas Cardroom for $152 on both Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7:30pm,” read a statement from Americas Cardroom.
