888 Poker is now holding a promotion to send players to the upcoming FA Cup Final. The top prize in this competition is a full corporate box at the FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium on May 5, 2012. That’s VIP entry for you and up to 9 guests including drinks, food and $2,000 for travel and accommodation expenses. You and your party also receive an assortment of 888Poker merchandise to enjoy.
The tournament at which this prize will be given away, the Corp Box (10 Seat) for FA Cup Final, takes place on Sunday, April 29th, 2012 at 19:05 GMT. It has a $1,000 + $50 direct buy-in, but players can avert that cost by winning a seat in the event instead through a satellite tournament.
The satellite series starts with buy-ins as low as $0.55. These Step 1 events take place twice daily (three times on Saturdays) at each running awarding 1 seat in the Step 2 event for every $11 collected.
The Step 2 event takes place once each on Tuesdays, Thurdays and Saturdays for an $11 buy-in and awards 1 in 5 players a seat in the Step 3 event.
The Step 3 event takes place once each on Tuesdays, Thurdays and Saturdays as well, this time for a $50 buy-in. It also advances 1 in 5 players to the next level, in this case Step 4.
The Step 4 event takes place on Sturdays only and has a $230 buy-in. From this event 1 in 5 players will move on to the Corp Box for FA Cup Final where the prize package will be won.
