A chance to participate in the World Poker Tour this year – how about that as a prize in a poker tournament? Great! At least, that is what most poker players in the world would say. The World Poker Tour, or the WPT as it is referred to, is one of the most prestigious live poker events that attracts players from around the world.
Party Poker is giving away free packages to three WPT events that take place in March and April 2013. The packages are being given away through satellite qualifiers that the poker room is hosting before these tournaments begin.
London, Barcelona or Mauritius? Make Your Pick

At present, Party Poker is hosting qualifiers for three WPT events, including two WPT Nationals and one regional event. The first event would be in Mauritius, the next in London and the last one you can qualify for will be in Barcelona.
