Rundown Of The Best 2016 World Series Qualifiers Online For US Players
2016 Qualifying season is now underway!
Qualifiers are already underway for the World Series Of Poker 2016, leading the field this year are America's Cardroom (known as ACR Poker) on the Winning Poker Network. They have an unusual qualifying process which uses their 3-handed lottery sit and goes. I am still waiting for the other networks and Bov*** (who no longer allow promotion of their poker room on 3rd party sites) to announce their qualfiers - so this page will get further updates as those come in.
This article looks at the different offers and highlights the best WSOP qualifiers for US players. Make sure you bookmark this page now, so you won't miss out when any of the big announcements come.
One more side note, I have a main kick-off page for US news and links to my review / comparison articles. To keep up to date with the latest, see the main US Poker Sites page here.
US World Series Qualifiers 2016 - America's Cardroom
The Winning Poker Network has really improved when it comes to their tournament schedule - and this year they have gone big with their WSOP qualifiers.
If you are not familiar with lottery sit n goes, these are fast games which have 3 players in each and (usually 1 winner). The lottery component is the prize pool. In regular lottery games the prize pool is randomly assigned from 2x through to 1000x your buy in. The majority are 2x, which frees up the cash for the occasional bigger prize.
WSOP lottery SNGs cost just $3 to enter. Your prize can be anything from $6 to $27. One in every 15k games (approximately) will award 3 full World Series of Poker Main Event packages worth $12500 as prizes. One of these goes to each of the players, so there is no chance that a bad beat would be able to stop you booking your flight to Vegas if you do end up sitting in one of the big prize events. As an extra incentive, the average SNG Planet reader will be way ahead of the recreational type players enterting these games, so winning those $6 prizes while you wait for a big prize will be relatively easy.

Add to this the regular $1m guaranteed tournaments, 'Sit N Crush' progressive leaderbard and generous welcome offer - and this might just have pipped the older sites to the post to become my pick for 2016 World Series Qualifiers.

US WSOP Qualifiers 2016 - BetOnline.ag
Since the last qualifiers season, this site has gained lot of momentum - and is now the 2nd largest of the US friendly poker sites (as part of the Chico Network). Last year BetOnline gave away a lot of packages through a random jackpot type game. They have yet to announce for '16. My thinking is that they are now big enough for 'proper' qualifiers in tournament format - then again, those jackpot games were very popular (and a lot of fun!). Once again, I will keep an eye out and update this article (along with my main WSOP qualifiers 2016 article) when they make the announcement.
US World Series Of Poker Qualifiers – B***** Poker
Removing mention of this big US friendly site - we will be back for the 2016 WSOP qualifiers with a new selection, good luck at the tables until then!
US World Series Qualifiers 2016 – Carbon Poker
Another site which used to be strong when it comes to live event qualifiers (well, US poker in general) and have now faded away. Carbon are focusing on other forms of gambling and their promotions are smaller than ever. I am not expecting to see anything in the way of World Series qualifiers from them - though will keep an eye and update if anything does come up.
Carbon are very strong when it comes to promotions – and I expect to be updating this article with more information very soon.
US WSOP 2016 – Planet Mark’s Pick
America's Cardroom are clearly offering the best qualifiers at the moment - offering full $12.5k packages for a $3 buy-in via their lottery Sit N Goes - check them out now at www.americascardroom.eu
