1-1M New Schedule

After much thought and deliberation, we have decided to reschedule Day 2 and 3 of our $1 for $1million promotion. Day 2 will now take place on Saturday 1st October, and Day 3 (the final day) will now take place on Sunday 2nd October.    

We’re doing this for two reasons: 

  1. To give as many players as possible the chance to join the event, and fight for their share of the unprecedented $1million prize pool.
  2. To release upgrades to our product that will improve the customer experience for everybody playing on WPT Global, especially those playing this event.


I know that some will jump to the conclusion that we are postponing the event to avoid an overlay. That is simply not the case. We have designed this event with a guaranteed overlay of over $900,000, and even if thousands of additional players now join the event because of the new schedule, at a buy-in of only $1 it will not make a material difference to the cost.    

Furthermore, by way of compensation for the inconvenience we are awarding all players who have already made Day 2 of the $1 for $1million promotion a free entry to the $1million Guaranteed Summer Festival Main Event, a $330 value.

We appreciate the support of all of our players, and look forward to seeing who takes down the tournament on 2nd October!
