Rep Your Country, Win a $3k Crazy Eights Package for 2016 WSOP

WSOP12

Three weeks before the 47th Annual World Series of Poker begins, it’s high time you take advantage of one of the last - and best - chances to qualify online.

If you live in one of seven countries (see list below), 888poker is putting up a shot to win a seat in its new Crazy Eights 8-Handed NLHE tournament this summer.

The promotion is called the WSOP Country Leagues and until May 20 there are tournaments running every day with buy-ins as low as 10 cents.

At the end of the league the 27 players with the most points in each league will meet for their country's Grand Final Championship on May 23.

The prize on the line is a $3,000 package for the Crazy Eights Event #54 in this year’s WSOP that will start on Friday, July 1 at 10 AM. It has a guaranteed first prize of $888,888 and is the first WSOP tournament under $1,500 that’ll run 8-handed.

Seven Nations, Seven Leagues

Players from seven countries are eligible for this exclusive 888 promotion with leagues for the UK, Canada, Germany, Australia, Sweden, Brazil and Poland.

Sofia might be waiting.

Player fields in this promotion will be relatively small, so your chances of winning the prize package are extremely high. On the other hand, there might be stiff competition in your league.

In the Swedish league, 888 pro Sofia Lövgren will certainly play; if you play in the German league you’ll likely have to overcome Dominik Nitsche.

In the fast growing Brazilian market competition is particularly stiff as it has two high profile players on the 888poker team - Bruno Kawauti and Bruno Politano. Last March, former world class footballer Denilson also joined the team.

Jackie Glazier, WSOP bracelet winner from Australia, will proudly hold her country’s flag high.

Wherever you play, you might have to get lucky not to run into any of these players.

Yet with low buy-ins and small player fields there won’t be many better ways to qualify online for the 2016 WSOP than the 888poker WSOP Country Leagues.

Get your 888poker account through one of our links to play and you’ll get access to special tournaments and promotions as well as a world-best $888 bonus.
