From May 15 through May 21, WSOP.com is offering players the opportunity to grow their bankrolls with a series of tournaments all offering buy-ins under $1.
The addition of series leaderboard prizes makes it even more potentially rewarding, with the top finishers winning tournament tickets ranging from $1 up to $200.
A great opportunity for micro stakes tourney players
With multiple daily tournaments all with buy-ins under $1, the Bankroll Builders series offer newer or micro-stakes players a chance to increase their bankrolls in tournaments that any player can jump into.
With guarantees ranging from $25 up to $350, it’s an ideal way for players to start padding their bankrolls with just a small investment.
Smaller buy-in tournaments often exceed their guarantees on WSOP.com and the prize pools for this series should be no exception.
Important details to note
The majority of tournaments are either re-entry or rebuy and add-on. Tournaments are primarily No Limit Hold ‘Em with some PLO added into the mix.
Leaderboard payouts offer prizes of tournament tickets to the top ten series leaderboard finishers. First prize is one $200 tournament ticket for the player who comes out on top of the Bankroll Builders series leaderboard.
Second place will win five tournament tickets worth $10 each. Third gets three of the $10 tournament ticket and fourth place wins two $10 tournament tickets each.
Fifth and sixth places will each earn one tournament ticket worth $10, seventh and eighth will each earn one tournament ticket worth $5, and ninth and tenth will each earn one tournament ticket worth $1.
All leaderboard tournament ticket prizes are non-transferrable and are not redeemable for cash.
Tournament ticket prizes will be credited to the winner’s account within 72 hours of the end of the Bankroll Builders series.
Is the Bankroll Builders series worth your time?
This series is mostly of value to low and micro stakes players, as well as players just starting out in the New Jersey online gambling scene. For more established or higher stakes players the guarantees are almost certainly too low to make a significant impact or be of much value.
For players at lower stakes, the Bankroll Builder Series could have the potential to pad your bankroll a bit for a minimal investment. For mid-stakes tournament players the chance for a $200 tournament ticket in particular may also be worth participating in the series.
The tournament leaderboard prizes add significant potential value, particularly for the top four finishers.
This is especially noteworthy because of the many satellites to the World Series of Poker that WSOP.com will be running. With numerous upcoming satellites starting at $10, a tournament ticket won from the Bankroll Builders Series leaderboard could have the potential to become a World Series of Poker package and maybe even a bracelet.
