The Poker Players Alliance is Giving Away Free Seats to the World Series of Poker

The current vogue for online poker promotions that can make players instant millionaires is not just confined to those who play—those who lobby can also get their chance to win.

The Poker Players Alliance (PPA) is giving its supporters a chance to win a seat to this year’s World Series of Poker (WSOP) in Las Vegas.

To win a seat at this year’s Colossus event which starts on May 29, all you have to do is create a video on social media site Vine.

  • Download the Vine app on your phone (iOS, Android, Windows).
  • Record a video of yourself saying: “I’m [Insert Your First Name], and I fight for poker.”
  • Tweet the video from your handle to .@ppapoker with the hashtag #Fight4Poker.

The promotion is not restricted to players in the states with regulated online poker—anyone over the age of 21 who can make it to Vegas to play, can take part in the competition. But Hurry, this contest ends on May 22

The PPA will select the best two videos and award both competitors a ticket.

An additional two seats to the WSOP Little One for One Drop event worth $1,111 are also up for grabs as well. Simply sign up to the PPA newsletter by June 23 and you will be entered into a raffle with the tournament tickets as the prizes.

See the PPA Contest Page for all the details.
