About WPT Global
The WPT brand is world-famous, having ignited the poker boom with its ground-breaking televised high-stakes poker tournaments and cash games in the early 2000s.

WPT Global welcomes players from more than 100 countries or dependencies, including Canada, but is not currently available in the US or UK.

The WPT is best known for its prestigious live events, and WPT Global features exclusive satellites to some of the biggest live poker tournaments around. For players looking to take a shot at a serious title for a minimum outlay, these satellites are a way to do it – and only available here.
WPT Global also offers recurring freerolls for both depositors and non-depositors, plus special Sunday and high-roller events, to cater for all bankroll levels. Types of tournaments on offer include Slow, Regular, Turbo and Hyper-Turbo, plus KO (Bounty Hunter) and PKO (Progressive Bounties), with no limit hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha and Short Deck tournaments running daily at $2, $11, $25, $55, and $109 buy-in levels. Deepstack highlights include three daily $109 Deepstacks (regular, Turbo and Hyper Turbo) and the $25 Daily Deepstack Turbo ($2,000 guaranteed).
KO (Bounty Hunter) and PKO (Progressive Bounty) tournaments are among the most popular; they work by placing bounties on every entrant with a portion of the tournament buy-in. Bounties are won by eliminating players, and in Progressive Bounty tournaments, part of the busted player’s bounty is added to your own. Players new to the format can try out daily Progressive Bounty MTTs at buy-in levels starting at just $2.
The ¥550 Golden Weekly Tournament brings together a global field to play for a guaranteed prize pool of ¥688k (over $100,000); flights run at times to suit all time zones and there are two daily satellites ($55 and $25 buy-in) awarding tickets.
The $100,000 GTD Welcome Event is open to everyone, not just newly registered players. You can play multiple flights and take your best stack forward to the Final.
WPT Global will offer special events and poker tournament series, starting with an exclusive Influencer Event (May 2022) to celebrate launch, and the enormous $1 for $1 Million tournament which is open to everyone.
The former brings together players and poker influencers, from the stars of the high-stakes world to the most respected vloggers, to take part in a series of exclusive $10,000 freerolls, each hosted by different celebrities. The latter is exactly what it says: an 11-flight mega-tournament with a $1,000,000 guarantee that costs just $1 to enter. Visit wptglobal.com for details of all upcoming special events.
Features and Games
WPT Global offers hold’em and 6+ (“Strip/Short Deck”) games at levels from microstakes to high roller limits. Splash games, available soon, will involve preflop antes from all players at the table (in addition to regular blinds), making for a fast-paced game for action-hunters.
- Emojis to use in-game
- Pace Poker – play only the good spots without the wait
- A range of detailed, mould-breaking avatars and table themes
Coming soon: a wholly reimagined loyalty system whereby players are rewarded for contributing to engagement, fun and entertainment while providing a safe, sustainable ecosystem for everyone. Rake levels will be calibrated depending on stake and the number and strategy of players at the table, with redistribution based on players’ actions. Starting games, playing in short-handed or tough games, and avoiding predatory behaviour results in higher rewards; new players and those who generate action also benefit from this custom-built, flexible system.
