This is a free promotion IN ADDITION TO all our other great promotions and nightly prizes that are already significantly larger than any league in the country. Our goal with this promotion is to get as many EPT Players as possible to Vegas... Because everything is more fun with more people! Because of this, we ask that you discontinue participating in the weekly travel satellites series if you win a package, you will no longer have a prize to play for. These packages are non-transferrable and have no cash-out value. Players will pick up travel reimbursement in Las Vegas.
