Party Poker Rakeback and WPT Cyprus Packages
By RTR Dennis
One future WPT event that players are really excited about will happen in Cyprus – where a $1 million prize pool is going to be offered. And Party Poker is looking to give several players an opportunity to compete for a share of this $1 million pool through their $6,500 WPT Cyprus prize packages. Each package covers the following aspects of the trip:
- $4,000 + $400 Main Event buy-in
- Stay at the 5-star Mercure Cyprus from August 4th-9th
- $1,050 in travel/spending cash
Aside from the financial aspects of these prize packages, also keep in mind that you’ll get to spend several days in beautiful Kyrenia, Cyprus. This town is located on the northern coast of the country, and it offers breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea, plenty of bars, and some nice beaches too. Check out the WPT Cyprus satellites below so that you can experience all of this and compete for the $1 million prize pool.

Party Poker Rakeback
Every poker player likes saving money – especially when it comes to poker tournament rake fees. That being said, players can save a lot of cash on the aforementioned WPT Cyprus satellites if they sign up at Party Poker through RakeTheRake.
The reason why this helps you with tournament rake is that you’ll get a rakeback deal that’s worth up to 50%. If you had the high end of this deal and played in the $325 + $25 Cyprus Satellite, you’d get $12.50 back on your buy-in (25 x 0.50). And there isn’t an online poker player out there who’d push away an offer like this!
