The World Poker Tour (WPT) National Venice is set to kick off in Italy from December 4 and Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes are offering players the chance to bag a main event seat for as little as $2.20.

The Revolution Poker Network sites kicked off their Venice campaign on Wednesday and revealed that the ultimate winner will receive a prize package valued at $2,200 that includes the $1,112 main event buy-in alongside four nights’ accommodation and $500 for travel expenses.

Winner will receive prize package for December main event in Italy valued at $2,200.

The WPT National Venice will be played at the world’s oldest gaming establishment, the Casino De Venezia, with the final table of its main event getting underway on December 7.

Step-one satellite games at Juicy Stakes and Intertops Poker start from $2.20 and are running daily at 7am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm New York time until October 17 with each awarding one ticket into the second stage of the campaign. The $11 buy-in step-two games take place at 3pm every day and will each hand out one spot into a $110 direct buy-in October 18 final where one lucky competitor will walk away with the WPT National Venice prize package.

Juicy Stakes and Intertops Poker held a similar promotion earlier in the year that was won by ‘Lukas W’, a civil servant from Germany. He competed in the April edition of the National Venice but was unable to go deep in the event.

“At the end of Day 1 I was busted [but] it was time to enjoy Venice with my girlfriend,” the 28-year-old wrote for the sites’ Living The Dream poker blog.
