WPT Global Launches First-ever MTT Series with Two $1M Guaranteed Events
Last Updated: August 1, 2022
Just months after its global launch, WPT Global is launching its first major tournament series with some extremely interesting highlights, the most peculiar of which will be the $1 for $1,000,000 tournament which is guaranteed to offer massive value to all entrants.
Yet, the $1 buy-in tournament with a million dollar guarantee is just one of the events on the schedule for the Summer Festival, which kicks off today (June 20) and will keep running until August 22.
Not only is Summer Festival guaranteed to be one of the most attractive online tournament series this year, but WPT Global is also giving away plenty of extra value on top of the guaranteed prize pools.
Let’s take a quick look at some of the Summer Festival’s most attractive events first.
WPT Global Summer Festival Highlights
The Summer Festival will feature dozens of events over the course of a month, but a few of those will be attracting significantly more attention than others.
The most attractive event, without a doubt, will be the $1 buy-in with a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The tournament will offer entry flights every Wednesday and Sunday throughout the Festival, with the final day scheduled for August 22.
The final table of this amazing event will be live streamed on the WPT Twitch channel, and we can expect some interesting action here, as $1 entrants fight it out for the lion’s share of the million dollar prize.
The Main Event of the Summer Festival will carry a $330 buy-n and another $1,000,000 prize pool, while those with more limited bankrolls will be able to enter the Mini Main Event with a $33 buyin and a $100,000 guarantee.
The $220 Opener with a $250k guarantee, the $220 PKO Championship with a $300k guarantee, and the $220 PLO Championship with a $150k prize pool are among other notable events.
Yet, these are only a few of the tournaments that WPT Global players will be able to enter over the course of the Summer Festival, with plenty other opportunities available across all buy-in levels.
WPT Tournament of Champions Seats Up for Grabs
To sweeten the pot, WPT Global are awarding all event winners with an opportunity to play for their place at this year’s $15 million guaranteed WPT Tournament of Champions, which will be played at the Wynn in Las Vegas in December.
All players who win a Summer Festival event will automatically be entered into a freeroll tournament, with two top finishers earning a spot in the prestigious Tournament of Champions.

All who fall short of the win but manage to cash a Summer Festival event will be entered into a separate freeroll, where dozens of prizes will be paid out in the form of tournament tickets.
With many of the Summer Festival events likely to see overlays and plenty of highly affordable tournaments on the schedule, the added value of these freerolls is a true cherry on top of what should be a very exciting tournament series to begin with.
