Serving as the online home of the renowned World Poker Tour, WPT Global is stepping up its game with a highly thrilling series this fall season. The Fall Festival, running through October 1st, celebrates with over $2,000,000 in guaranteed prizes across its 81 tournament lineup. Buy-ins for the online games range from as low as $11 to as high as $3,500 for its $300,000 guaranteed WPT Championship, allowing runners with different bankroll levels to find a game suitable within their budget.

Following a successful Spring Festival on WPT Global, we are happy to announce that our online counterpart is hosting another tournament series this fall”, said Adam Pliska. “The most prominent element of the WPT Global Fall Festival is that it will ultimately add to the WPT Champions Club.

A great motivation to take part in the action, players participating in the ongoing series are not only vying for top payouts and champion titles but also battling to win a number of $12,400 WPT World Championship passports in the online games. The coveted passport includes a $10,400 entry in the record-breaking $40 million guaranteed WPT World Championship event at the Wynn Las Vegas this December, and an additional $2,000 for travel expenses.

Major WPT tournaments are available on schedule daily, continuing the world class action with its $1,060 buy-in $250,000 guaranteed WPT Prime which kicked off two days ago. The prime highlight gives players several chances of locking a spot into Day 2 set for September 24th, with a total 11 starting flights on schedule. The crown jewel of the series, the $3,500 buy-in $300,000 guaranteed WPT Championship follows shortly after, and kicks off its festivities an hour and a half later on the same jam-packed Sunday.

Other tournament highlights on the festival calendar include:

  • $60,000 guaranteed $110 Sunday Slam each Sunday of the Fall Festival
  • 19 PKO tournaments, including NLH, Short Deck, 6-Max, Turbo, and Hyper variants
  • A two-day $530 Superstack event
