$1 million bonus for WSOP Qualifiers

Deathmatch at the Rio
Everest Poker has even more WSOP cash up for grabs.

Everest Poker players who qualify for the 2009 World Series of Poker* will have more than one way to cash in Las Vegas this summer.

As official WSOP sponsors, Everest Poker announced a plan Wednesday to match all the WSOP Main Event winnings for players who qualify on the site up to $1 million - then share it amongst them all.

Had the plan been in place in 2008, the 62 Everest Poker qualifiers in Vegas would have earned $20,000 a piece.

"Our aim last year, our first as official sponsor, was to encourage more European players than ever before to go to the WSOP - which we did," said Sondre Wassas, Nordic Regional Manager Everest Gaming. "This year we want to reward that loyalty by offering a knock-out reason to qualify with us.

"This bonus gives everybody hope of winning something even if they are out early and it will also give an added sense of camaraderie to all those qualified with us."

WSOP Main Event qualifiers on Everest Poker start at as little as $3 and the site is also offering numerous exclusive WSOP satellites for PokerListings.com players.

There will be a total of four exclusive WSOP qualifiers in May with first place finishers getting a WSOP Step 5 token worth $503. The satellites take place on May 2, 9, 16 and 23.

PokerListings.com players will also be invited to an exclusive WSOP Side Event Satellite on May 30. The winner will get a WSOP Side Event package worth $3,500.
