54 Bracelets are Up for Grabs on GGPoker

In addition to the 31 bracelets being awarded on WSOP.com during the month of July, a total of 54 bracelets are being awarded on the GGPoker platform between July and September.

Not all of them carry guarantees, but among them are some of the most ambitious tournaments ever held online. Events include the BIG 50, the cheapest WSOP bracelet event ever to be offered. It carries $1 million in guaranteed prize money.

But the biggest highlight of the series is the WSOP Main Event. It comes for a buy-in of $5000, guaranteeing a staggering $25 million, the biggest guarantee in the history of online poker. Its first Day 1 flight kicks off on August 16.

The final table of each of the bracelet events will be played with real names. 18 out of 54 bracelet events support the operator’s “Bubble Protection”, a feature that refunds players their whole buy-in if they fall just short of the money. However, to be eligible for the bubble protection, players must register before the start of the tournament.

To promote the first-ever GGWSOP series, the operator is running big-ticket promotions including a $5 million WSOP Season Special Giveaway. The operator has also launched a new WSOP special Welcome Bonus giving away $100 in WSOP tickets for free.
