Each package will include a No-Limit Hold'em championship buy-in and will be delivered at the conclusion of daily qualifying and weekly satellites. Winners will also receive complimentary accommodations for five nights at the ARIA resort, as well as reimbursement for all travel fees as part of the same package.
On June 25, players will have the opportunity to purchase a $600 entry into the BetMGM Poker Mystery Bounty. This will be the first time the ARIA Resort & Casino hosts a modern live poker knockout tournament.
The Inaugural BetMGM Poker Championship in Las Vegas has arrived at the perfect time
The event will take place "at one of the most exciting moments of the poker season," according to BetMGM's director of poker Luke Staudenmaier. Staudenmaier also referred to ARIA as a "famous poker brand" and voiced ARIA's delight at the prospect of their Championship being included in the 2022 Poker Classic.
