WSOP watch and win

Starting with last Tuesday’s telecast of the World Series of Poker Main Event (ESPN:5 PM PT), viewers can tune in, be given a unique code, and then enter a sweepstakes on WSOP.com to win a trip to Las Vegas.

The valued $12,500 package is available to those age 21 or older and meeting other eligibility requirements. In all, 11 WSOP Main Event seats will be awarded, representing 11 consecutive weeks of original programming on ESPN through Oct. 23. Coverage of the Main Event final table takes place Oct. 29-30.

In the first hour of each two-hour telecast, viewers will see a promotional spot providing an overview of the sweepstakes with a mention to keep watching for the night’s unique code. When given the code, viewers can log on to www.WSOP.com,,download the free-to-play poker software and register their account using a poker username, email address and special code launching the game.

Entries are limited to one per person with the Sweepstakes signup period ending at 8:59 pm PT Tuesdays on each original episode night. For official rules of the sweepstakes visit http://www.free.wsop.com/promotions/espn-terms-and-conditions.htm or go to WSOP.com.

“This officially becomes the first way to qualify for the 2013 WSOP Main Event,” quipped WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “For 10 consecutive years, WSOP telecasts have showcased that in Vegas everyone can play and anyone can win. This is our way of thanking loyal viewers and giving them a chance to go from their couch to the championship in 2013.”

Also formalized, are plans for ESPN to again air every hand of the WSOP Main Event Final Table starting Monday night Oct. 29 at 5 PT.
