WPT World Championship Entry Events

From utilising the welcome offer bonus code to regular satellite events, here are all the possible entry routes for the WPT World Championship. 

WPT Welcome Bonus

First, new players can sign up and enter the NEWBONUS code to claim a welcome offer of up to $1200. 

However, players have alternative options for the welcome bonus. These include a $22 satellite ticket to the 2023 WPT World Championship. This is also a no-deposit offer so players do not have to send funds to their new poker account.

Alternatively, new bettors can get access to the WPT World Championship through the following welcome bonus routes.

  1. Make an initial $20 deposit and receive four $5 WPT World Championship satellite tickets.
  2. Get a $220 WPT World Championship Qualifier ticket after you make a $1,200 first deposit. 

Satellites and Qualifiers

Second, there are two WPT qualifying routes through Satellite games. 

Players can enter straight into the direct qualifiers. These events take place each Sunday for $220 and $1,060. If successful, customers can get a $10,400 tournament entry stake in addition to a $2,000 allowance for travel. 

But, a lower stake option is also on offer. Players can enter satellite games for $5 and work their way into the Sunday qualifiers. 

Global Scavenger Hunt

Alternatively, you can complete weekly WPT challenges and earn a Freeroll event. The Freeroll competitions take place every Sunday until 3 December. 

Players who win their freeroll game can get a $12,400 WPT World Championship Passport.

WPT Global Discord Channel

Players can participate in the WPT Global Discord leaderboard and earn points to climb higher. If you finish in the top spot after the last tournament of each month, you will earn a place at the WPT World Championship. 

PLO Rake

Between September and November 26, players can win $25,000 on PLO4 or PLO5 cash games and book a place at the World Championship in Las Vegas. 

Moreover, players can get up to $2,500 in rewards from selected PLO games during this period.

Cash Games

For every 100 hands played each week on cash games, players can earn tickets into satellite qualifiers. 

If you can gain two or more tickets in one week, you can receive a Freoll entry. With a valid ticket, you can then enter into the $220, $55 and $22 satellite qualifiers. 

Weekly Tournaments Leaderboard

Lastly, anyone who finishes in the top 100 on tournament leaderboards can get $220, $55 and $22 satellite tickets.
