Although the start of the 2010 World Series of Poker still sits three months away, several online poker rooms are already giving their players a chance to get there.

PartyPoker is giving away a $14,000 WSOP Main Event package, including buy-in, accommodations and $2k in spending money, for absolutely nothing.

The site just introduced a comprehensive range of WSOP qualifiers this week, starting with daily freerolls.

Qualifiers are online now until June 13 with the main $700+$50 satellites taking place every Friday at 6 p.m. ET and Sunday at 3:35 p.m. ET giving away a $14k WSOP package to one in 20 players.

" is offering more seriously cost effective ways to qualify for the WSOP than ever before," said a company spokesperson. "It doesn't get much better than winning a package for absolutely nothing!"

Meanwhile, in an attempt to make all its qualifiers feel like winners, Absolute Poker and UB are running a bonus promotion that pays every player who qualifies for the Main Event on the sites at least $1,000 in cash and a chance at a final table sponsorship that's worth up to $750,000.

Players who qualify for their Main Event seat at UB or Absolute Poker through Step tournaments or multi-table satellites and play in the Main Event wearing approved branded gear will qualify for the bonus.

Starting at $1,000, the bonus is progressive, meaning the more players that qualify on Absolute and UB, the bigger the bonus will be.

Absolute and UB will add $1,500 per player to the progressive prize pool and that amount will grow up to $5,000 per player based on how many players take advantage of the promotion.

Of the total bonus prize pool, 75% will be split among all participating players and the remaining 25% will be shared among those who cash in the Main Event.

There are several ways to get hold of one of UB or Absolute's $12k WSOP packages.

In addition to Step tournaments for just 10 cents and Weekly Super Satellites, which are fed by daily qualifiers, UB and AbsolutePoker will also hold a 25-seat Guaranteed tournament on June 6 and a 50-seat Guaranteed tournament on June 20.

Plus, a "Win the Most Satellites" leaderboard competition will award over $10,000 in Tournament Dollars to the top 5 players who win the most Main Event seats on either site.
