Action at the 888poker XL Inferno starts today and with it comes tons of prizes, bonuses, and WSOP tournament giveaways for the winners.
The XL Inferno will run from May 10 to 20 and will have a total of 34 events with more than $2.8 million in guarantees. Buy-ins for these events starts from as little as $5 and go all the way up to $2,600, giving players the opportunity to join the events that suit their bankrolls.
The low buy-in events are gaining a lot of attention because there are some events that have low buy-ins but high guarantees. Some of these include the $30 buy-in Micro Main which takes place on May 20 and the $12 buy-in Mini Tune Up which takes place on May 13. Both these events have $50,000 guaranteed prize pools.
There are also high-roller events to look forward to such as the $215 Mini High Roller which comes with a $100,000 guarantee and the most expensive $2,600 High Roller with a $200,000 guarantee.
Apart from the numerous low buy-in and high roller events, the highlight of the tournament will be the $1,050 Main Event on May 20, where the winner is guaranteed to take home a piece of the $1 million prize pool. Last year, Argentina’s “Pepepepepe” took down the XL Blizzard Main Event and turned his $1,050 buy-in into a nice $183,867 payout.
Stacked Payouts For Winners
But winning the Main Event is not the only way to win a cool million at the tournament. XL Inferno is running a promotion where players who win consistently throughout the tournament will be rewarded bonuses on top of their first place prizes. Players who win two tournaments will receive $1,000, while those who win three tournaments will receive $10,000. Win four tournaments and take home an additional $100,000, and win five tournaments to walk away with an easy $1 million on top of all your winnings.
All winners from the 34 events will also get a ticket to the XL Inferno Champion of Champions Event, where tournament packages to the 2018 WSOP could be won. The winner of the Champion of Champions Event will walk straight into the 2018 WSOP Main Event as they receive a $12,600 WSOP Vegas Main Event package.
The $12,600 WSOP package comes with the $10,000 Main Event buy-in, 5-nights and 6-days accommodation at the Vdara Hotel in Las Vegas, $1,050 as travel and other expenses allowance, transportation to and from the Vdara Hotel to the Rio All-Suite, and an 888poker Live kit.
