The 2022 World Series of Poker is now only one month away, and poker players from across the United States and the world are planning their trips to the world's biggest and most prestigious poker festival.
Not everyone has the bankroll for bigger events on the WSOP schedule like the $250,000 Super High Roller or $50,000 Poker Players Championship, and that's where Mega Satellites come in.
The WSOP runs Mega Satellites every year for dozens of WSOP events, and 2022 is no exception. For example, Mega Satellites give you the opportunity to qualify for the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller for just $320 or the 2022 WSOP Main Event for as little as $140.
