 Whether via the mobile app or desktop software, playing online poker in Nevada this summer provides more opportunities to win with a schedule chock full of tournaments, online and offline satellite qualifiers and non-stop cash games.  Anyone inside Nevada borders is eligible to play. Registration can be done from outside Nevada.

 A comprehensive look at Nevada’s schedule can be viewed here:

Last year, more than 700 seats were won on into WSOP gold bracelets events, and this year that number is expected to exceed 1,000 with more satellite chances than ever before. 

 “In just four short years Nevada has gone from no online bracelet events to three this year with millions of dollars in guarantees and bonuses,” said head of online poker Bill Rini.  “As awareness of our offering has grown, we have seen continued growth.  It is our mission to keep growing our selection of games and believe players of all levels and from inside and outside Nevada will find something to their liking while in town for the WSOP.”

 Special Kickoff Weekend satellite packages are currently running every Sunday at 5:45 pm offering both a Colossus III $565 seat and a $333 Little Grind Online Bracelet seat for a $30 buy-in. These will continue in May every night at 7:00pm (Sundays at 4:45pm).

 Satellites start at just $2, including The Colossal XXII, Nevada’s biggest mega satellite of the year for the world’s largest poker tournament – the Colossus III.  For a $22 buy-in on June 3, players compete in a mega satellite guaranteeing 22 seats to the June 4 flights of Colossus (WSOP Event #5) at the Rio.

 Players don’t need to wait until the WSOP to start grinding. New players who make a deposit receive freeroll tickets that give them a chance to win WSOP seats.  With satellites running now and picking up in May, players can lock up their seat way ahead of time if they are in Nevada and do so for the price of a cup of coffee or less. Nevada is also offering a record three official online WSOP gold bracelet events this year, all to play out entirely online and are one-day structured events. They are as follows:

  • The $333 Little Grind Online Bracelet - WSOP Event #8 with a modest $333 buy-in (June 3 at 3:33pm)
  • The $3,333 Big Grind Online Bracelet – WSOP Event #61 with a $3,333 buy-in, which is the highest buy-in ever offered on (July 1 at 3:33pm)
  • The $1,000 Classic Online Bracelet – WSOP Event #71, featuring the $1,000 buy-in bracelet event as in previous years. (July 7 at 2:00pm) 

All the online WSOP gold bracelet events (Events #8, #61 & #71) offer plenty of online satellite opportunities daily (at 3:30, 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30pm), while a special “Marquee 33” mega satellite on Friday, June 2 at 5pm will offer 33 guaranteed seats to the next day’s $333 Little Grind Online Bracelet Event #8, for just a small $22 buy-in. 

While the WSOP Main Event is the richest poker tournament in the world, the WSOP offers several other signature events throughout the summer that pack people in and swell prize pools.  As such, Nevada returns with its popular series of $10 mega satellites at 5:00pm tailored to meet the demand and timing of when these events occur.  They are as follows:

  • $10 Casino Employees Satellites– May 24-30 at 5pm for WSOP Event #1 – May 30 at 11am
  • $10 Millionaire Maker Satellites – June 3-10 at 5pm for WSOP Event #20 – June 10-11 at 10am
  • $10 Seniors Championship Satellites – June 9-15 at 5pm for WSOP Event #31 – June 16 at 10am
  • $10 Monster Stack Satellites – June 18-24 at 5pm for WSOP Event #47 – June 24-25 at 10am
  • $10 Crazy Eights Satellites – June 25-July 1 at 5pm for WSOP Event #60 – July 1-2 at 10am & 4pm
  • $10 Ladies Championship Satellites – June 30-July 6 at 5pm for WSOP Event #70 – July 7 at 11am
  • $10 Little One for One Drop Satellites – July 6-12 at 5pm for WSOP Event #74 – July 11-13 at 3pm

Of course, no Nevada schedule would be complete without the popular 25 Seat Scramble, the biggest one-day online opportunity to win your seat into the WSOP Main Event.  Slated on Day 1A of the Main Event, (Saturday, July 8 at 3:00pm), the 25 Seat Scramble guarantees 25 seats into the WSOP Main Event, with just a low $200 buy-in.  In addition, daily $5 satellites are offered to satellite into the 25 Seat Scramble.  Plus a reminder that besides the 25 Seat Scramble, every Saturday at 7:15pm and every Sunday at 4:30 and 7:15pm, Nevada runs Main Event Qualifiers, where a $200 buy-in gets you a chance at a $10,000 Main Event seat. 

But the WSOP isn’t the only offering on Nevada.  The site also hosts its own Online Championships, this year featuring over 100 events and $860,000 in guarantees.  Tournaments are daily at 4pm, 7pm and 9pm from June 3-July 8.  The Online Championships feature a tournament leaderboard with the winner receiving a Online Champion’s Ring.  A few highlighted tournaments of the Online Championships are:

  • $50,000 Guaranteed Event #25 No-Limit Hold’em on June 11
  • $50,000 Guaranteed Event #56 on July 1
  • $75,000 Guaranteed Event #106 on July 8
