WSOP Online Returns to WSOP.com & GGPoker With the $20 Million Main Event
The World Series of Poker has announced that the online leg of the prestigious series will be coming back once again, taking place on GGPoker (for international players) and WSOP.com for players in the United States.
The 2022 WSOP Online will kick off on August 14 on GGPoker, while the US version will start on September 10.
Players on both sites will get to enjoy more than a month of quality tournament action, but the GGPoker $5,000 Main Event will be the pinnacle of the Series, featuring a massive $20,000,000 guarantee.
33 Events Across All Buy-in Levels
Running from August 14 until September 27, the international leg of the 2022 WSOP online will feature 33 tournaments on GGPoker, featuring buy-ins starting as low as $100 and going all the way up to $10,000.
Regardless of the buy-in, all event winners will receive proper WSOP bracelets as well as a seat in the 2023 WSOP Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas.
The Main Event will feature a $20 million guarantee, and there will be numerous $5,000 Day 1 flights throughout the Series. The final day will take place on September 26, when the champion will be crowned.
Of course, there will be numerous satellites available on the site, giving plenty of opportunity to win a seat without putting up the full amount.
Besides the Main, there are 32 other tournaments on the docket, including:
- $210 Million Dollar Bounty with $10,000,000 guaranteed
- $100 Flip & GO with $1,000,000 guaranteed
- $400 Colossus – $3,000,000 GTD
- $1,500 Millionaire Maker – $5,000,000 GTD
In the PR accompanying the announcement, Daniel Negreanu, the main ambassador for GGPoker and one of the most successful players alive, emphasized that online bracelets were just as valuable as the live ones and that he was looking forward to adding one to his collection.

USA Online WSOP Schedule 2022
Players from the United States will have their own shot at a fair number of online bracelets as well. In the US, online proceedings will kick off on September 10 and will last through October 18.
The play will take place across four state-specific WSOP.com platforms currently operating in the country, namely Nevada, New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
The 2022 WSOP online is open to all players, though, as long as they’re physically present within one of these states, i.e., not just the state residents.
All winners will enjoy the same benefits as the international players, but the WSOP.com schedule doesn’t feature any guarantees.
This shouldn’t be too big of an obstacle, though, as online events in 2020 and 2021 created total prize pools exceeding $25,000,000, and this was without Michigan and Pennsylvania.
In total, there will be 33 bracelet-awarding events on the NV/NJ shared liquidity WSOP.com network, alongside twelve events hosted on WSOP PA and WSOP MI (six on each).
The organizers have set up the schedule so that it coincides with several big live tournaments in Las Vegas, which should further help boost the online numbers.
Dozens of Bracelets up for Grabs
Once upon a time, the dream of winning a WSOP bracelet was unreachable to many. Having to travel to Las Vegas and spend a lot of money before even registering for a tournament or two was simply not feasible.
This has changed in recent years, though, especially with the advent of the online WSOP to the GGPoker platform.
You can simply register and play for real WSOP bracelets without ever leaving your home. The room is available in numerous countries worldwide, and the range of buy-ins is such that almost everyone can give it a shot.
Even if your bankroll is on the lower side, there are so many different satellites that you can easily get a few seats if you’re really intent on it.
The online leg of the 2022 WSOP kicks off in a week’s time, so there is plenty of time to do some planning and give yourself a proper shot at winning one (or two) of poker’s most coveted trophies!
