Although the summer calendar is usually quiet, this year WSOP.com has been quite proactive, capitalizing on the rush of players flocking to online poker in the wake of the global pandemic by spreading a wide range of promotions.
Half a dozen promotions fill the June calendar to keep players engaged ahead of the online bracelet events scheduled to kick off next month.
Highlights of this month’s promotions include a $1.5 million guaranteed Online Finale Circuit Series, culminating in a $300,000 guaranteed Main Event this Sunday. The winner of each of the 12 Ring Events -as well as the winner of the series leaderboard – will automatically qualify for the $1 million guaranteed Global Casino Championship (GCC) bracelet event.
There is also a $100,000 guaranteed Player Appreciation tournament with added cash prizes at the end of the month. Freerolls, weekly cash prizes, plus reload and deposit bonuses make up the remaining promotions for the month.
$300,000 Guaranteed Circuit Season Finale Main Event
The $1.5 million guaranteed Season Finale Online Circuit Series comes to an end this Sunday. The series offers the last chance to qualify for the $1 million guaranteed Global Casino Championship event.
Having kicked off on June 3 featuring 12 official WSOP Ring events, there are still 3 Ring Events remaining including a $300,000 guaranteed Main Event that takes place this Sunday.
With 3 ring events left on the schedule, that means players still have 3 chances remaining to qualify for the GCC event. Additionally, the player who accrues most points through 12 Ring Events also qualifies for the GCC event.
Remaining Schedule of the WSOP Online Circuit Finale Series:
- Online Finale Circuit Monster Stack – $320 Buy-in, $100,000 Guaranteed on Friday at 7 PM ET
