What can I win? A slice of over $2 million guaranteed across 76 tourneys, including $300,000 guaranteed pool in the main event

The Pokerfest Championship edition is a 15-day online poker series packed with 76 tournaments and over $2 million in guaranteed prizepools. Plus, we've amped up leaderboards with a wider range of buy-ins.
For you, that means 76 chances to win huge cash prizes with a buy-in that’s perfect for your bankroll starting at just $1.

Check out the blog for highlights and results of the Pokerfest Championship so far.

Three levels of buy-ins

We’ve levelled the playing field across all buy-in ranges with three different levels of buy-ins:

  • Low: $1 - $5
  • Medium: $10 - $50
  • High: $100 and up

Mega Satellites

Give these supersized qualifiers a go, which pay out a minimum of 275 seats to 7 of the biggest Pokerfest tournaments.
Check the schedule here.

Leaderboards

Instead of just one leaderboard, we’re offering three different leaderboards, one for each level of buy-in. The top prize is an $850 WPT500 seat + $250 cash, and runners up get hefty tournament tickets or T$.
Check out the different leaderboards here.

Pokerfest Championship Missions

Take on the Pokerfest Championship Missions to win a variety of bonuses, qualifier and Mega Satellite tickets. We’re running one Mission for each week leading up to the main event, for six Missions in total.
Check out all the Missions here.

Leaderboard: race to a seat to the WPT500!

Every time you play in a Pokerfest Championship tournament you’ll be awarded leaderboard points on one of the three leaderboards, depending on the amount of your buy-in. The higher you place, the more points you get! See the leaderboards below for the full structure of buy-ins and placement.

If you’ve placed in the top 10 after 2nd November, you’ll get a prize awarded by which of the three leaderboards you’re on.

Please check your current standing in the leaderboards here: LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH

Top prize

An $850 WPT500 seat, plus $250 spending money. Find out more about the WPT500 here.
