partypoker is Giving Away $500K Worth of WPT Tickets
Table Of Contents
partypoker is already one of the more generous online poker sites out there thanks to its cashback loyalty programme and various leaderboards, but now it’s giving away $500,000 worth of tickets to the upcoming WPT World Online Championships.
The $500K Ticket Drop kicked off on June 16 and continues right up to the start of the $100 million guaranteed WPT World Online Championships on July 18. Each day, partypoker randomly selects a hand full of tournaments to receive a WPT ticket as an added prize.
You’d think partypoker would only choose their highest stakes games to drop these tickets into. You’d think incorrectly. Of course, some of the site’s flagship tournaments have been part of the WPT Ticket Drop, but plenty more affordable events have also received more than their fair share of added value.
For example, on June 23, the winner of the $11 buy-in Mini Deepstack: $7.5K Gtd won a $1,173 top prize, but also secured a $1,050 WPT Online World Championships ticket.
A $320 seat was given to the winner of the $55 buy-in Daily Deepstack PLO: $2K Gtd too, while the chip leader in one of the partypoker MILLION Day 1s received a $3,200 seat!
There doesn’t seem to be any pattern to these ticket drops, you simply need to fire up the partypoker client and look for that day’s special ticket-added tournaments.
$100 Million Guaranteed During the WPT Online World Championships
The upcoming WPT Online World Championships are going to be massive, not least because of the $100 million worth of combined guaranteed prize pool.
Running from July 18 through to September 8, the WPT Online World Championships sees dozens of events take place. Twelve championship events take place along with the lower buy-in Mini and Micro versions, giving everyone the chance of experiencing what it’s like to become a WPT champion.
Every poker player worth their salt will want to secure the Main Event title. The $10,300 buy-in Main Event has a gargantuan $10 million guaranteed prize pool. Its champion is inducted into the exclusive Champions Club and also receives a $15,000 seat in the WPT Tournament of Champions presented by Baccarat Crystal.
Four other events also grant a seat in the Tournament of Champions. These are the $3,200 buy-in editions of the 6-Max, 8-Max, Mix-Max, and Knockout.
Lower stakes players also have the opportunity to play in a Main Event. The $10,300 buy-in has satellites galore, but there’s also a $1,050 and $109 version of the Main Events. These have guarantees of $5 million and $1 million respectively.
