Pacific Poker adds to WPC seats for players

Empire Casino, London

The sixth and final seat to the World Poker Crown that Pacific Poker was offering exclusively to all players at the poker site will be handed out in a freeroll today.

But don't panic if you didn't get your shot at a free seat in the WPC. Pacific Poker has decided to add a few more chances for players to win seats.

Players from Italy, France, Germany and Spain will get another shot at seats in freerolls specifically for their country.

The freerolls will take place at 4 p.m. Pacific Poker Time on the following dates:

  • April 21: Italy
  • April 22: France
  • April 23: Germany
  • April 24: Spain

As an added bonus, poker players don't have to do anything to qualify. In the initial freerolls that were open to all players, players had to earn five points during a seven-day qualifying period to get into each freeroll.

All it takes now is to have signed up at Pacific Poker through and be from one of the four countries listed.


What online rounders will be playing for is a seat in the WPC, which is worth $1,000+$50, but has the potential to be worth much more since the tournament has a guaranteed $3 million prize pool. Plus, the winner will take home $1 million.

The WPC is a newly created tournament from that will start out online, bringing together players from all over the world to compete. When it gets down to the final table, play will be stopped and the remaining players will be flown to Barcelona, Spain, to finish the game live.

They will be given free transportation from anywhere in the world to Barcelona, as well as five-star hotel accommodation for the duration of the final event.

The WPC online tournament will take place April 26 at 10 a.m. Pacific Poker Time. The final table will take place May 6-10.

The final table will also be filmed to air on Sky Sports 2 on May 12.

The WPC freerolls aren't the only benefit for players at Pacific Poker. The poker site also hosts monthly $5,000 freerolls for players and is running World Series of Poker freerolls for them as well.

Pacific Poker has also upped the ante on its bonuses for players. All players who sign up at the poker site via a PokerListings link are eligible for an exclusive 125% match bonus up to $475.

Players don't need to clear the entire bonus beforehand, either. Instead they will receive 50% up to $175 as an instant bonus that will be immediately credited to their account. The additional 75% up to $300 is a pending bonus released in a lump sum once cleared.

Head to Pacific Poker to take advantage of these and many other features the poker site has to offer.
