PKR offering Rakeback, $5k WPT Experience Packages

While plenty of online poker sites offer prize packages to the big land-based poker tournaments, nobody gives out prize packages like PKR Poker does. That’s because PKR goes beyond just offering the stale packages that cover your tournament buy-in and hotel/travel fees; instead, they run great parties, and set up fun side events for players to enjoy.

Such is the case with the new $5,000 WPT Experience Packages they’re giving out for the WPT Ireland event. Assuming you’re able to win one of these prizes, PKR will cover the following aspects of your trip:

–  €2,500 WPT Ireland Main Event buy-in (4th – 8th January 2012)
– Five-night stay at Dublin’s Citywest Hotel
– Special PKR goody bag
– $250 in spending money
– Access to PKR’s VIP social lounge at Citywest
– PKR Welcome Drinks reception invitation
– Tour of the Guinness factory
– Dublin pub crawl
– Jameson’s whiskey-tasting party
– Pool night hosted by Irish professional snooker player Ken Doherty

Assuming you think the WPT Experience prize package sounds like a great time, you can win one through the various satellites that are currently running at PKR. And if you’re interested in playing in the satellites, don’t forget that PKR offers 30% rakeback to players. Here is a look at the satellites and qualifiers that will be running until early January:

$2.90 Stage 1 – happens 9X daily, 1 in 5 players move on to Stage 2
$13 Stage 2 – runs 9X daily, 1 in 5 players win Stage 3 seat
$59 Stage 3 – happens 2X daily, 1 in 5 players move on to Stage 3
$270 Stage 4 – every Monday at 19:15 GMT, 1 in 20 players wins a $5,000 WPT Experience Package

Along with the satellites, you can also win an Experience Package by playing in the WPT Dublin Nights promotion at PKR. Every night from now until October 12th, PKR will be holding WPT Dublin Nights MTT’s, and each one you compete in gives you an extra 100 chips for the big October 16th freeroll that will award $5k WPT Ireland packages.

The WPT Dublin Nights MTT’s see 80% of the prize pool go to the top players, and 20% go towards the October 16th freeroll ($20,000 is expected to be generated for the freeroll). You can add even more to your chip stack by hitting the target number of WPT Dublin Nights tournaments, and here’s an in-depth look at this info:

WPT Dublin Nights (Speed) MTT – $22 buy-in freeze out or $11 buy-in w/ 1 rebuy, 20% of the prize pool goes to October 16th freeroll.
