The NFL has a new official sponsor and it’s WSOP.com, as confirmed to PocketFives by Seth Palansky, WSOP Vice President of Corporate Communications. As an official sponsor, WSOP.com is now offering promotions in conjunction with the NFL, including one that will send a player to the Super Bowl in Miami.
The partnership stems from the January 2019 announcement that the NFL had selected Caesars Entertainment Corporation, parent company of the WSOP and WSOP.com, as the first-ever Official Casino Sponsor of the NFL.
“If you have been sitting on the sidelines, now may be the time to give WSOP.com a try in Nevada or New Jersey,” Palansky told PocketFives. “This Super Bowl promotion is exclusive to WSOP.com and there are a lot of different ways to enter, whether you are a new customer to WSOP.com or a regular player. We believe that besides winning a WSOP gold bracelet, this opportunity to win your way to the Super Bowl via WSOP.com is the next best prize up for grabs.”
Dubbed the ‘Sit ‘N’ Go to the Super Bowl’ promotion, players on WSOP.com in Nevada and New Jersey have the opportunity to win a trip for two to Miami for Super Bowl LIV. The grand prize package will be awarded via a raffle drawing, and it’s pretty simple to enter.
Players who complete any of the following actions will receive entries for the drawing:
- Register for a WSOP.com account with the promotional code ‘HOTDOG’
- Make a first-time deposit using code ‘MIAMI’
- Win a SNG tournament with a buy-in of $1 of greater, Blast SNGs included
- Play in a $100,000 guaranteed Sunday tournament
The promotional period runs November 18, 2019, through January 19.
Players may receive multiple entries based on those actions. A free entry can also be achieved by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that includes your full name, username, and player ID. The email must be sent during the promotional period.
The grand prize is valued at $10,000. It includes two tickets to Super Bowl LIV, plus a $3,000 travel stipend. The $3,000 travel stipend will be deposited in the winner’s WSOP.com account. Super Bowl LIV is scheduled for Sunday, February 2, 2020, at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL.
“As someone who has worked 10 Super Bowls previously, it is the most incredible sporting event offered on American soil annually,” Palansky said. “From the pregame entertainment and military flyover, to the halftime show (this year featuring Jennifer Lopez and Shakira), and of course the actual football game itself, it truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and one that is plenty of fun whether you are a football fan or not. There is so much going on in the Super Bowl host city the week of the event that the WSOP.com winner can truly make this a bigger trip and take advantage of the city of Miami and the many NFL-themed offerings taking place, like NFL Experience, Taste of the NFL, concerts, etc. Miami is a great Super Bowl host city, having hosted it several times before.”
The grand prize trip to Super Bowl LIV isn’t the only thing on offer, too. Winners will be drawn to earn one of several NFL Shop gift cards up for grabs. There is one $500 NFL Shop gift card, five $150 NFL Shop gift cards, and 15 $50 NFL Shop gift cards on offer. The drawing is scheduled for January 21, 2020.
“[The promotion] is a key differentiator for WSOP.com, allowing us and therefore our players an incredible prize package,” Palansky said. “We believe this promotion is a great fit for our player demo. WSOP.com is leveraging our parent company Caesars’ agreement with the NFL, which is all about giving our guests unique and fun experiences tied to their affinity for the NFL.”
Also being offered as part of the WSOP.com and NFL partnership is a 100% deposit bonus up to $1,000, and there could be more coming in the future. When asked if there could be promotions between the WSOP and NFL surrounding the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, Palansky said that it’s “not out of the question for the WSOP to tie in more in the future.”
The NFL promotions in conjunction with WSOP.com already running qualifiers for the 2020 WSOP Main Event provide a lot to offer for online poker players in Nevada and New Jersey.
