Kicking off the series is an intriguing event scheduled for December 3rd, Mystery Millions. It features a buy-in of $1500 and boasts a $5 million guaranteed prize pool. This tournament introduces an innovative concept: It will adopt GGPoker’s new OnLive format, a hybrid structure that allows participants to engage in online Day 1s and secure their share of winnings prior to their arrival in the Bahamas.
Also on the agenda is a compact version of the Main Event, the Mini Main Event, a $1000 entry fee tournament backed by a $1 million guarantee. Notably, there’s a 6-handed No-Limit Hold’em Event, set at a $1000 buy-in, also promising $1 million in prize money.
The fast-paced Closer, employing a turbo bounty format, ensures another $1 million guarantee for an entry fee of $2000. Furthermore, the event roster includes several High Rollers, among them the $10,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Championship, sporting a guarantee in the seven-figure range.
Also included on the schedule is GG’s innovative Flip & Go tournament taking place on December 12 requiring an entry fee of $800. Notably, this is the only event in the lineup without an attached guarantee.
Big Online Component to WSOP Paradise
Two of the 15 bracelets will be played online on GGPoker’s platform, giving players more opportunities to win coveted gold bracelets without leaving the confines of their homes. This includes a $2000 buy-in Mystery Bounty Pot-Limit Omaha boasting $1 million in guarantees taking place on December 8 and a $1000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout featuring $1 million guaranteed.
The schedule also boasts the inclusion of the curious online-live hybrid event, $1500 Millionaire Maker in Paradise. This is actually part of GGPoker’s upcoming online bracelet series set to begin on August 20th — but the last phase of this event, will unfold in person in the Bahamas. Despite its presence on the schedule, the tournament will accept no new registrations at WSOP Paradise.
The online segment of this event carries a $1500 buy-in, complemented by a $5 million guarantee. The tournament will play online until the tournament is down to the final 100 players. At this point, the tournament will be paused and the remaining hundred participants will play in-person at Atlantis Resorts on December 4.
“It’s official, WSOP Paradise is set to deliver an unforgettable new winter series with our jam-packed schedule,” said Ty Stewart, SVP & Executive Director of the World Series of Poker in a press release. “We can’t wait for cards to be in the air in paradise this December, and we look forward to crowning our first Main Event champion at Atlantis Paradise Island. Whether you made the trip to Vegas or not, you don’t want to miss out on what we’ve got in store with our partners at GGPoker.”
