The World Series of Poker has announced its plans to send one lucky online poker player to the 2020 Super Bowl. The promotion will run until January 19th, and players can vie for the chance to head to the football championship by playing in WSOP Sit n Gos online.
How It Works
For every sit n’ go that has a buy-in of $1 or more, the winner of the tournament will win one entry into the prize draw for the Super Bowl tickets. Entries are also awarded to players taking part in the $100,000 guaranteed Sunday tournament. There is no limit to the number of entries that players can earn. New players can also receive raffle tickets by making their first deposit using the code “MIAMI”.
The winner of the raffle will win two tickets to the Super Bowl game. They will also receive $3000 in travel expenses that will be paid out into their WSOP account. All in all, the prize is valued at $10,000.
This year’s Super Bowl will be taking place in Miami. The NFL has announced that Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will be headlining the halftime show, and special guests may show up. The average Super Bowl tickets cost between $2,500 and $3,000 – so, this is a very worthwhile promotion.
There is so much going on in the Super Bowl host city the week of the event that the WSOP.com winner can truly make this a bigger trip and take advantage of the city of Miami and the many NFL-themed offerings taking place,” says Seth Palansky, the Vice President of Corporate Communications for the WSOP.
Caesars’ Partnership with the NFL
It was in January 2019 that Caesars, which owns the WSOP, was selected as the NFL’s official casino partner. The multi-year sponsorship will provide NFL fans with unique experiences through its casino venues and entertainment offerings.
“All of us at Caesars Entertainment are thrilled to be the first-ever casino partner of the NFL, the most prominent sports league in North America,” says Mark Frissora, President of Caesars Entertainment.
This is the first time that the two companies have launched a promotion together, and it’s a big one. Both Caesars and the NFL will be monitoring the results of the initiative, which will provide them with insight into how to run future promotions for football fans.
