The 2013 World Series of Poker has already gotten underway at the vast poker room of the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, but it’s not too late to win a prize package with an all-expense paid trip to the City of Sin from European-based online poker room PKR. The last two PKR WSOP Experience satellites are slated for June 10, with qualifiers earning a $4,500 trip to Las Vegas to play the tables and party hard with the pros. 

PKR is not your ordinary online poker room, and likewise, its WSOP Experience is like no other prize package you’ll find in the internet poker industry. PKR was built upon a foundation of intensity, delivering a unique 3D card gaming experience unheard of at the time of its establishment. An equally intense adventure is delivered to all winners of the PKR WSOP Experience.

First of all, you’ll notice the prize package is only valued at $4,500, which should be a direct clue that the 2013 WSOP Main Event is not the destination, as is generally the case with other online poker sites’ WSOP qualifiers. Instead, players are awarded a seat in the $1,000 Event #42, a 3-day No Limit Hold’em tournament that begins at noon on June 23. But there’s no reason to be disappointed about that. It’s what else comes with the PKR WSOP Experience that makes it so extreme.

Each qualifier is invited to travel with the PKR Pros to Las Vegas, where they will receive 6-nights’ accommodations, from June 20-26, at the luxurious Palazzo Hotel. They are given a throng of opportunities to experience the best of Las Vegas entertainment, including a limousine tour of the Vegas Strip, tickets to take the Sky Jump dive from atop the Stratosphere Hotel, and in the evening hours, it’s time to get your party on. Winners will enjoy PKR’s exclusive VIP access to the infamous PURE nightclub, V Bar and Wet Republic pool party, carousing right alongside the pros of PKR, such as APPT/EPT champ Vladimir ‘Beyne’ Geshkenbein, WSOPE bracelet winner Scott Shelley, cash game specialist Simon ‘Rhymenoceros’ Hemsworth and the lovely First Lady of PKR, Sofia ‘welllbet’ Lovgren.

As they have every year, PKR has been running myriad satellites since early April, with buy-ins as low as just $1. However, were coming down to the wire now, and there are just two chances left to join Team PKR this summer at the World Series of Poker. On Monday, June 10, at 19:15 GMT, PKR will host the final stage, where a $270 buy-in will award 1 in 18 players with the ultimate WSOP Experience prize package. One hour later, at 10:15 GMT, PKR’s final chance, the WSOP Lottery Final, will take place.

The structure for the WSOP Lottery Final is like no other qualifier. The buy-in is $105, and players have no control over the outcome of any hand. All cards are played face-up, for all to see, with no decisions to be made. Every stack is all-in, resulting in lightning fast eliminations at each table. Whittling the field to nothing in record speed, 1 in 45 entrants will win the PKR WSOP Experience prize package.
