Last Updated: April 3, 2024

2024 has already been one of the most successful years for the World Poker Tour (WPT), with a number of festivals across the Main Tour and the Prime Tour already in the books.

After traveling to Cambodia, Aix-en-Provance, Amsterdam, Thunder Valley, and Jeju, WPT is ready to keep on rolling with plenty of action in the remaining months of the year.

Just as the players were getting ready to embark on the epic WPT Voyage, the Tour released its schedule for the second half of the year, which will follow events in Slovakia, Florida, Australia, Canada, and Italy, all of which were already announced at the start of the year.

“The first half of Season XXII has been outstanding,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska. “Looking ahead to the second half of the season, we think there is plenty for poker players to get excited about as we will host festivals on four different continents with sensational global casino partners.”

Eight WPT Festivals in Build-Up to World Championship

This year’s WPT schedule is more comprehensive than it’s been in a while, with the Tour taking on a truly international format and traveling to every corner of the world.

After visiting four continents in the first half of the year, WPT will revisit Asia, Europe, Australia, and North America before the year is over.

It all starts in the Asian gambling capital of Macau, with WPT Macau scheduled for June 20 – 24 and the Main Event buyin set at HKD 40,000 ($5,100).

Those looking for slightly more affordable action in Asia this summer will get their chance at WPT Prime Taiwan, which runs in August with a price tag of TWD 33,000 ($1,000).

In September, the mid-major tour rolls into UK for WPT Prime UK. The price tag for that one will be set at £1,100, which should find quite a few interested parties in this part of the world.

Before the month is over, WPT will travel across the world for WPT Australia, where the AUD$8,000 Main Event will run between September 20 and 25.

Back in Europe, players will get a chance to compete at WPT Prime Lichtenstein in late September, with CHF 1,100 being the asking price, before taking a trip to France for WPT Paris.

To end things ahead of the grand finale, WPT will go back to America for WPT bestbet Scramble and WPT Seminole Hard Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open, both popular events on the WPT calendar.

While it has not yet been set on the schedule, the season will end with the traditional WPT World Championship, which will once again run in December at the Wynn & Encore in Las Vegas. More details on that will be made available in due time.

In the meantime, here is a look at the full WPT schedule for the second part of 2024 as it stands now:

Most Global World Poker Tour Season Ever

Ever since its inception, WPT has been a global tour with stops across the world, but 2024 has been a special year, with more events and more locations than previous years.

By the time 2024 is over, WPT will have visited multiple locations on four continents with both the Main Tour and Prime Tour, giving players in all buyin brackets a chance to play for a WPT trophy on their home turf.

This year has seen the WPT schedule pivot in a big way, with many new stops added in previously unexplored locations and plenty of opportunities for players in every corner of the world.

All the festivals and events on the calendar will be in preparation for the big WPT World Championship event, which is coming back to Las Vegas this winter and should be an even bigger spectacle than it was in 2023.

Stay tuned for more updates from WPT as the year progresses and start getting ready to play the WPT festivals in your home country or region in the coming months, as WPT tours the globe and crowns new champions each and every month.
