WPT: World ChampionshipSummary:

  • WPT Global is rewarding new players with free WPT World Championship satellite tickets
  • The satellites start at $5 and have been running on WPT Global since July
  • The tournament is poised to replicate the success of the inaugural event

The prestigious World Poker Tour (WPT) World Championship returns for a second edition in December 2023, and once again, players get the chance to enter the tournament for a fraction of the price through satellites on WPT Global. But there’s more good news for players as they can now win a $10,400 World Championship ticket on the online platform for free!

Satellite Your Way Into Free World Championship Ticket

WPT Global has updated its welcome offer for new players, with the site giving away 4 x $5 WPT World Championship satellite tickets to new sign-ups for a minimum deposit of only $20. The $5 satellites, which have been running on WPT Global since July, feed into direct qualifiers which have a buy-in of $220 and $1,060. The direct qualifiers take place every Sunday until the start of the festival this December.

Each direct qualifier awards at least one WPT Championship package valued at $12,400, which covers the $10,400 buy-in and includes a travel allowance worth $2,000.

New and existing players will continue to receive free World Championship satellite tickets upon making their next deposits provided they meet the minimum deposit requirements. The value of the tickets varies according to the deposit amount.

For example, new and existing players will receive $22 satellite tickets when their next deposit reaches at least $300. Those with next deposits of $1,200+ will receive $220 WPT World Championship satellite tickets.

One should not underestimate the value of satellites, as a number of players have managed to convert their satellite tickets to massive wins, some even reaching seven figures.

During the inaugural WPT World Championship in 2022, Irish player Stephen Kehoe secured a seat into the tournament via a $550 satellite on WPT Global. While he fell short of making the final table, Kehoe had an impressive run, finishing in 14th place for a career-best $269,900.

The 2023 $10,400 WPT World Championship runs from December 12-21 at Wynn Las Vegas and is one of the three big poker tournaments ending the year in style.

2023 WPT World Championship

This could be another record-breaking year for the WPT World Championship after a massively successful debut last December.

Despite the ambitious $15 million guarantee, the 2022 inaugural event smashed that figure by a huge margin after it attracted 2,960 entries. In the end, the tournament awarded $29,008,000 in total prize pool, nearly double the guarantee.

The top six players walked away with a seven-figure payout, led by Canada’s Eliot Hudon who claimed the title for $4,136,000.
