Online Satellites Run Through June 20 For Second Round of BetMGM Championship

Spin your way to the second wave of BetMGM Poker events at the Aria Poker Classic.

As the initial BetMGM Poker Championship tournaments finish up this week at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, the 2024 ARIA Poker Classic continues through mid-July. Daily one-day tournaments offer hundreds of thousands of dollars in guarantees throughout the summer series.

Amidst the daily tournaments, ARIA will welcome BetMGM back into the mix on June 30 to host a Mystery Bounty event and a two-day BetMGM No Limit Hold’em Championship. This second wave of BetMGM Poker action is as follows:

  • Sunday, June 30 at 11 a.m.: $1,100 buy-in BetMGM Mystery Bounty with a 30,000-chip starting stack and $250,000 prize pool guarantee
  • Monday/Tuesday, July 1-2 at noon: $1,600 BetMGM No Limit Hold’em Championship with a 40,000-chip starting stack and $500,000 prize pool guarantee

BetMGM online poker players in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey still have chances to get in on the action via online satellites and a promotion. 

Win Your Way to Vegas for $2

Poker players in New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania have numerous chances to win their way to Las Vegas through June 20. BetMGM Poker is awarding prize packages for players to experience the best of the ARIA Poker Classic in style. Each prize package includes:

  • Buy-in to $1,100 Mystery Bounty tournament with its $250,000 guarantee
  • Buy-in to $1,600 BetMGM Championship tournament with its $500,000 guarantee
  • Three nights of accommodations at ARIA on the Las Vegas Strip
  • Travel credits
  • BetMGM swag bag

Take it from Justin Vaysman of Pennsylvania, who won his BetMGM Poker Championship prize package online and traveled to Las Vegas for the first wave of BetMGM tournaments at the ARIA Poker Classic. He finished sixth at the final table of the Mystery Bounty for $18,600 in prize money plus $45,500 in bounties.

The step satellite system is the best way to qualify for the main satellites. Step 1 is the $2 satellite, always with at least one $10 ticket guaranteed to move to the next step. (These are MTTs on demand, whenever enough players sign up to play.) Step 2 is that $10 satellite with the guarantee of at least one ticket in the prize pool worth $100. Coincidentally, Step 3 is the $100 satellite, each of which guarantees at least five entries to the $600 final step satellites.

Step 4 is listed in the poker tournament lobby – under the BetMGM Poker Championship tab – as the “FINAL” satellite. Two of the finals – June 6 and June 9 – already awarded their five prize packages, and there are still six players in each state ready to go.

  • Thursday, June 13:  $600 buy-in (or step ticket) with 2 prize packages guaranteed
  • Sunday, June 16:  $600 buy-in (or step ticket) with 3 prize packages guaranteed
  • Thursday, June 20:  $600 buy-in (or step ticket) with 1 prize package guaranteed
