The excitement is ramping up as we get closer to the BetMGM Poker Championship at the 2023 ARIA Poker Classic. Returning to the ARIA Resort & Casino for a second year in a row, the action at the BetMGM Poker Championship will kick off on Friday, June 9, 2023. Let’s find out everything you need to know about one of the most exciting BetMGM poker tournaments taking place this year.
Over 100 qualifiers are set to take place and will be hosted in regulated markets in the United States, including New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan, as well as Ontario, Canada. Buy-in for the qualifiers will start from as little as $2 and will start on Monday, May 1, 2023. Those taking part in these qualifiers will stand a chance to win a $3,500 buy-in for the BetMGM Poker Championship.
Players can also take part in special qualifying events every Sunday from May 7 to May 28. Two qualifiers will be hosted on Thursday, May 11 and Thursday, June 1, 2023.
These qualifying events have a buy-in of $600 but also put competitors in the running to win a Las Vegas poker package worth a total of $6,500. This package includes the $3,500 buy-in, an $800 buy-in for the Mystery Bounty event also taking place during the 2023 ARIA Poker Classic, $500 for travel expenses, an all-expenses-paid stay at the ARIA for six nights between June 7 and June 13, 2023, and a BetMGM swag bag.
