25% up to $100 bonus at Pacific Poker

wsop1.jpgOnline satellites to the 2008 World Series of Poker have begun now that Harrah’s Entertainment has announced that pre-registration for WSOP events has begun. Online poker players can now take their shot at winning their way into the Main Event or many of the other events at this year’s WSOP. Poker players, especially amateur poker players, enjoy online satellites because they give players the opportunity to win their way into large buy-in events for only a fraction of the cost. The chance to cheaply compete for a WSOP bracelet and the first place prize money is an opportunity that many people find difficult to ignore.

The amount of satellites and the number of events that you can win your way into depends on the poker site. Many offer numerous satellites to numerous events while other sites are only offering satellites to the Main Event. The usual case is for sites to have larger buy-in direct satellites while offering smaller satellites for players to win their way into the direct satellite. This allows players to compete in satellites based on their available bankroll. Several sites have their own unique way of sending players to the WSOP. Poker Stars, for instance, has a step program where you buy into a sit and go and try to make it to the next step. If you consistently succeed and make it to the final step you will have the opportunity to win your way to the WSOP.

Some sites also give you a chance to earn bonuses for your play at the WSOP. For instance, if a Full Tilt Poker qualifier wins the Main Event Full Tilt will pay them a bonus of $10 million. Poker Stars is offering a $1 million bonus to any of their qualifiers who make the final table of the Main Event.

Check your favorite poker sites to see their schedule of satellites and whether or not they are offering any bonuses.
