Warm Up Festival on WPT Global Imminent With $2.5 Million in Guarantees

Not only the temperatures in South East Asia but also the action at the online poker tables is heating up. Leading online operator WPT Global has ramped up the promotions further and proudly presents the $2.5M GTD Warm Up Festival, which is taking place in a few days from now from April 19 to 28, 2024.

WPT Global Warm Up Series

WPT Global Warm Up Festival

As the name may indicate, the upcoming series is just a shadow of even bigger things to come as WPT Global prepares for their first quarterly flagship competition – the Spring Festival. And the upcoming Warm Up Series not only brings hundreds of thousands of guaranteed prize pools every day but also the opportunity to win tournament tickets for the Spring Festival as well.

So what is this latest online poker festival all about? It is a mix of vanilla tournaments, bounty events, as well as progressive bounties (PKO’s) for No-Limit Hold’em and Short Deck variants. The two marquee tournaments on the schedule are the $220 Championship with $300,000 guarantee and respective $22 Mini Championship, which will pay out at least $80,000 in prize money. Seventeen starting flights are available for the former, while the bargain edition has fourteen different flights.

During the Warm Up Festival, players can also jump into the action in three of the Sunday flagship tournaments while two new events have been added on the final weekend only for the time being.

  • $110 Sunday Slam – $90,000 Guarantee
  • $330 Grand Slam – $60,000 Guarantee
  • $11 Mini Slam – $13,500 Guarantee

Higher stakes can be found in the $2,100 High Roller PKO with a $200,000 guarantee while the April 28 also features the more affordable Crazy Sunday $110 PKO as well, which will pay out at least $100,000 in prize money to provide plenty of value for everyone.

There is even more value up for grabs during the online festival as well, as event winners and finalists are rewarded on top of their efforts at the tables!

Each champion in an official numbered Warm Up Festival event will receive double their event buy-in as Spring Festival tickets added to their account on WPT Global. They also gain entry to the Champion of Champions in a post-festival freeroll. This restricted tournament will have a $12,400 WPT Global Spring Festival package to the eventual winner while the second and third-place finishers receive more than $1,000 each in Spring Festival tickets as well.

You came up just shy of victory but reached the final table in a numbered event during the series? That will give you an entry to the Second Chance Freeroll. The winner of that tournament will get paid back ALL the festival buy-ins back up to $5,000 and at least $1,000. Second and third place can look forward to $500 in Spring Festival tickets each, too.

Last but not least, all of the Warm Up Festival tournaments also count towards the annual Player of the Year leaderboard for 2024 on WPT Global as well, which includes the results of all mini and major festivals on the online platform. That one will have $250,000 in prizes up for grabs with the overall winner taking home an additional $100,000 in cash and prizes – including entry to FOUR different WPT Main Tour Championship live event entries in 2025.

With so much extra value up for grabs during these ten days, the Spring Festival will very likely be even bigger and you should definitely check out the sign-up promotions on WPT Global if you don’t have an account yet.
