In Las Vegas, there are Elvis impersonators at every corner but there is going to be another coming to Sin City later this month thanks to 888poker. The Super High Roller Bowl sponsor ran a social media contest awarding a VIP Backstage Pass to the year’s biggest event and Asif Warris’ “special” adaptation of an Elvis Presley and Las Vegas classic won the 888poker VIP Package.
The $5,000 package includes travel, accommodation at ARIA Hotel & Resort, VIP dinner and a backstage pass to the most exclusive poker event of the year. Asif will also be able to bring a friend, as the package includes a plus-one to the $300,000 buy-in event.
While Asif’s tone-deaf tune snagged the VIP package, ten other hopefuls won some 888poker swag. The top ten video entries were awarded special edition “Noetics” hoodies, which were signed by 2016 Super High Roller Bowl runner-up Fedor Holz and included a customized 888poker patch.
