First World Series of Poker Online Circuit Series in Michigan
World Series of Poker (WSOP) ran its first Michigan online casino online circuit series from April 20 to May 1.
It advertised $350,000 in guarantees as well as 12 gold rings to be awarded. Gold bracelets were also awarded.
Each day of the online tournament, a ring event would award one player the WSOP gold ring. Buy-ins ranged between $100 and $1,000.
The main event in the series promised six-figure rewards to the winners.
The final event was held on May 1, which included a $525 buy-in and awarded one lucky winner $100,000 in prizes. This was the largest guaranteed prize for WSOP in Michigan.
It also awarded a seat at the “Tournament of Champions” $1 Million Freeroll, which is a highly sought-after seat in the 2022 WSOP Tournament in Las Vegas, NV (which is scheduled for July 2). The event is highly publicized; Vince Vaughn is set to be the master of ceremonies at the in-person event.
The Vegas event is set to take place over two weeks, from July 3 to July 16.
