Get to Vegas Via Three ACR Poker Promotions

Must read

There is FOMO everywhere. The fear of missing out is a very real thing at the beginning of June, as it feels like everyone is in Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker and the many other tournament series happening around Sin City this summer. The truth is that most poker players are not able to make the trip. They have financial restraints, familial responsibilities, and a myriad of reasons that they must stay home.

For those without the poker bankroll to make it to the 2024 WSOP, ACR Poker has options. In fact, instead of running just one or two promotions around the Vegas poker summer, the Winning Poker Network is offering three promotions.

Jump on ACR Poker for the chance to start with a freeroll and win your way to Las Vegas!

Main Event Satellites

ACR Poker is awarding at least 40 WSOP Main Event prize packages in its Vegas Main Event Satellites promotion. Each prize package is worth $12,500, as it includes the $10K buy-in for the Main Event plus $2,500 for travel expenses. Players can also choose to keep the $12,500 cash instead.

The satellites start on Monday, June 3. The cheapest way to start is to play the freerolls, but players can get in at any step of the qualifying path: freeroll, $6.60 satellite, $66 satellite, or $630 satellite. No matter if players want to buy in directly to the super satellites or take the path upward, the supers will play out as follows:

  • Sunday, June 9 at 1:05pm ET:  $630 buy-in
  • Sunday, June 16 at 1:05pm ET:  $630 buy-in
  • Sunday, June 23 at 1:05pm ET:  $630 buy-in
  • Sunday, June 30 at 1:05pm ET:  $630 buy-in

Fast Track to Vegas Turbo Series

Another way to get to Las Vegas is to compete in the Fast Track to Vegas Turbo Series, a short series of online poker tournaments with a cumulative $2M guarantee. The series runs June 9-16 with a total of 101 tournaments and buy-ins as low as $1.10.

The Fast Track Leaderboard Competition is the key to the Las Vegas Main Event prize package. There will be $18K put into the leaderboard for the top finishers in the series, and the winner will capture a $12,500 prize package to the WSOP Main Event.

There will be three Main Events in this series, each a progressive knockout with multiple starting flights, as follows:

  • Event 3:  $2.50 buy-in NLHE PKO ($50K GTD)
  • Event 2:  $16.50 buy-in NLHE PKO ($150K GTD)
  • Event 1:  $66 buy-in NLHE PKO ($500K GTD)

Each will play on a fast structure with 10-minute levels. Flights begin on June 2 and run through June 16. Day 2 will also start on June 16.

Moneymaker Vegas Experience

Chris Moneymaker has a special relationship to the World Series, considering he won the 2003 WSOP Main Event. He also values his connection to ACR players, as he is a representative of ACR. Put those things together, and it was the perfect opportunity to create the Moneymaker Vegas Experience.

Essentially, this promotion takes the form of online poker challenges on ACR. It starts with several chances to qualify online for just $8.60.

  • Step 1: Compete in $8.60 MTTs on June 8-9 and June 15-16. Finish in the top two spots in any of the four MTTs.
  • Step 2: Top two finishers from MTTs will play a Sit & Go on June 17.
  • Step 3: Top two finishers from SNG play Moneymaker on a June 18 livestream.
  • Step 4: Defeat Moneymaker and win the Vegas Experience.

The winner of the challenge will spend July 1-14 in Las Vegas, complete with transportation and accommodations covered by ACR. He or she will play the $10K WSOP Main Event and also play with a $2,500 stake in a meet-up game featuring ACR pro players. That player will also be a part of the filmed experience alongside ACR pros that airs on YouTube after the summer.
