WSOP Frequently Asked Questions
Access to all real money services and real money play on PokerStars is not allowed while you are physically located within the United States of America under any circumstances. Players who attempt to play for real money or use real money services including but not limited to real money transfers while they are physically located in the USA will lose their playing privileges and/or funds in their account. Further information is available online at /usaplayers/faq/
Yes. Your entry fee and $3,000 for travel expenses will be deposited. You will be responsible for making all flight and hotel arrangements.
Yes. We will put the money into your account within 5 business days of you emailing email@example.com, and then you will have to buy-in directly with Caesar’s. For more information please visit the World Series of Poker* website www.wsop.com/2013
We do recommend a third party agent that can coordinate your travel, accommodation and even buy-in with Caesar’s. This will make your trip to Las Vegas that much easier. Once you email us to say that you want to attend the WSOP we will email you this information.
Absolutely - you're welcome to leave the money on PokerStars.
Since we are depositing the money directly into your PokerStars account, there is no seat to sell or transfer. Again, you will be responsible for buying yourself into the Main Event.
That's not a problem at all because we will be giving you cash for the seat that you win on PokerStars. You may leave the money on PokerStars to play on our site, or cash it out and use it for whatever you wish, including, of course, buying into the Main Event.
Because you are receiving cash for the seat that you win on PokerStars, and PokerStars is not registering you into the Main Event, then the Rio will probably treat you as a first time seat winner. You may be required to play that seat, but that will be up to the staff at the Rio.
The minimum age to play on PokerStars is 18, but the minimum age to play in the World Series of Poker* is 21. If you are not 21 on the date the event is scheduled to begin, you will not be allowed to play in the Main Event. However, if you win a satellite on PokerStars, you will receive the $10,000 + $3,000 cash in your PokerStars account, as would any player.
Yes. You have the same options as an under-21 player who wins a seat this year. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will assist you.
Regrettably this option is not available this year.
PokerStars will not enforce any deals in satellites which award WSOP* seats. The seat must be awarded.
Rather than give away a single lump sum of cash, we're returning as many buy-ins as we can.
Caesar’s are likely to enforce the signing of a TV Waiver for the Main Event. If you choose not to sign a Main Event waiver, you will be disqualified from the event and your buy-in will NOT be refunded. PokerStars assumes no responsibility for entries forfeited in this way.
For details on how to buy yourself to the Main Event please contact Caesar’s directly, either through their website, www.wsop.com or call them at +1-800-752-9746.
By participating in a satellite of any kind on PokerStars, or playing in the event, you grant PokerStars the right to use your name and likeness for promotional purposes without further compensation.
No. We are not offering a final table bonus.
The PokerStars package for the 2013 WSOP* Main Event is worth $13,000. This is $10,000 for the buy-in and $3,000 for travel and expenses. The $13,000 will be deposited into the player’s PokerStars account.
PokerStars is not offering any incentives this year. Players that qualify for the WSOP Main Event will only get a package worth $13,000.
Regrettably no. This year there will be no PokerStars party and our qualifiers will not get a Player Bag.
Regrettably no. There will be no PokerStars representatives on the ground.
This year it is not possible to buy into the WSOP* Main Event via PokerStars.
No. This year PokerStars will not be offering this service.
