The internationally renowned World Poker Tournament or WPT as it is widely known returns to Emperors palace again this year with a total of 10 tournaments taking place from 23 – 31 October 2015. The events vary from the exciting 1-day Turbo to the $5000 High-roller tournament and also includes a ladies’ tournament, Mega stack and a Celebrity tournament!
World Sports Betting has once again signed up to sponsor this event and participants can look forward to great promotions in the poker room. One of the most exciting parts of this year’s tournament will be the “Don’t be a Sucker” promotion where a giant lucky number generator will select one lucky seated player for every one of the ten tournaments. Should the lucky winner be an account holder at WSB, they will receive their full buy in back in cash! If not, the not so lucky winner will receive a sucker as a consolation prize.
Players will be able to sign up to WSB in the poker room where dedicated hostesses will be available throughout the tournament, standing ready to assist anybody who wishes to register.
R10 Million in winnings will be up for grabs over the stretch of the tournament and the filed will include some of Poker’s most elite. That being said, there is still the matter of the Rugby World Cup! Tournament director, Gary Lentin put his patriotic cap on and announced that tournaments will be suspended during the semi-finals as well as the final to allow all players to watch the games. Games will be screened in the poker room. Legendary Springbok flyhalf Andre Pretorius will also be present for all Rugby games to talk the crowd through his predictions and suggested bets.
Make sure to visit Emperors Palace throughout the tournament and catch a glimpse of the excitement!
