The ARIA Las Vegas is set to host the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl this May, with a lottery taking place this week to determine who will compete. Interested players had to pay $30,000 as a deposit for the event, with $300,000 in total paid to participate. A total of 61 players signed up for the event by making the deposit and only 48 seats are available. To determine the first 30 players that would be able to buy-in, a lottery was held.
PokerGO live streamed the lottery with Ali Nejad hosting. Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth were along for the ride as well as Paul Campbell, the Tournament Director of the ARIA, and Sean McCormack, the Head of Poker Operations for the casino.
Negreanu and Hellmuth were both pulled from the lottery, able to compete in the upcoming event, along with Brian Rast, Dan Shak, Erik Siedel, Andrew Lichtenberger and several more. A few players who have never competed in the event before were also drawn during the lottery, including Andreas Eiler and Sergio Aido.
The players who paid the $30,000 buy-in but were not drawn during the lottery will be able to get their deposit back. They also still have the ability to enter the event via two options. The ARIA has 16 seats that they can provide at their discretion and there are two seats up for grabs via a $10,000 satellite that will take place on the 26th of May.
Players who made the cut during the lottery will now need to pay up the remaining $270,000 to be eligible for the event this May. The remaining money must be provided to the casino before the event starts.
