Colossus II Online Qualifiers Available in New Jersey and Nevada

Each and every year, online poker players look forward to the World Series of Poker. As the most popular land based poker tournament to take place each year, the WSOP sees tens of thousands of individuals visiting Las Vegas, Nevada to take part in the many events from the smaller side events to the Main Event. Everyone wants to try for the WSOP gold bracelet or at least catch a few of their favorite pros in action.

Since online poker has become an option in the United States, players in New Jersey as well as Nevada have had access to qualifiers and satellites to gain entry into a WSOP event for little to no money. WSOP online poker sites operate in both states, giving players access to several options for earning a seat to the WSOP, sometimes even the main event!

For 2016, players who are located in New Jersey or Nevada can access the WSOP online gaming site and take part in qualifiers to earn a seat to the Colossus II. The Colossus II event will offer $7 million in prize money and will give the winner a one million dollar payday.

Having started yesterday, the online qualifiers are not open to anyone located within New Jersey or Nevada. Players simply log on from now until the 24th of April to be able to try for a seat to the Colossus II event. Players in Nevada can participate for as little as $10 while New Jersey offers the same gaming options at $20.

Nevada players will be able to play at 4pm with rebuy options. Two seats with a value of $565 are guaranteed. At 6pm, an additional qualifier will take place with a $20 re-entry with one seat to the Colossus II guaranteed. In New Jersey, players can compete at 6pm in a $20 rebuy with one package worth $1,165 to be awarded.

Not only can players qualify now for the Colossus II event, but qualifiers for the WSOP Main Event are also being offered. Satellites for the Main Event started in March and will continue throughout April. Additional options to earn a seat to the WSOP events are said to be offered in the future as we grow nearer to the start date of the tournament series.

As far as the Colossus II is concerned, any player who earns a seat will be able to compete next to the best of the best. Last year, Colossus had a buy-in of $565 and set a world record for attendance during a live tournament with 22,374 participants. A prize pool was created at over $11 million and the winner, Cord Garcia, was able to earn $638,880. This year, the winner will earn much more, with an over $1 million set aside for the winner.

With online poker gambling being available over the past few years in Nevada as well as New Jersey, has helped to add even more interest to the WSOP. Each summer, the WSOP is back in action and for the past couple of years, online poker events have been included. Players can enjoy online poker while at the gaming tables with the Rio even setting up gaming areas for players to go online in between live events if they so choose.

For 2016, it would not be surprising to see the WSOP continue to offer even more online poker gaming options as the WSOP moves forward. Players want to be able to access gaming online and the WSOP is making sure to offer such options to those who are in attendance.
