Las Vegas, NV (September 25, 2023) – The World Poker Tour® season-ending finale is set and there is an abundance of qualification paths available for players to win their way into the $40,000,000 guaranteed WPT® World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas.
Ultimately, WPT expects more than 1,000 players to qualify for the $10,400 buy-in Championship Event via online and live partners. Satellites to the WPT World Championship are offered through WPT Global*, ClubWPT™**, Wynn Las Vegas, and a record-setting number of WPT casino partners around the world.
“Once again, holding true to last year, we are proud to offer a wide assortment of opportunities for players to secure their seat in the World Championship,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska. “WPT Global is the foremost avenue for international online players to qualify, while our casino partners scattered across the globe are hosting satellites and promotions to bring players from all walks of life to Wynn Las Vegas this December.”
WPT Global is offering direct WPT World Championship qualifier tournaments every Sunday with a $1,060 buy-in at 5:30 p.m. EST which guarantees eight $12,400 Passports and a $220 buy-in at 7:30 p.m. EST that guarantees one $12,400 Passport.
