Over $150 Million in Prize Money Generated in GGPoker's WSOP Series and PokerStars' WCOOP so Far Over $150 Million in Prize Money Generated in GGPoker's WSOP Series and PokerStars' WCOOP so Far

The jam-packed summer period filled with two prestigious online tournament series is almost coming to an end. Both the WSOP online bracelet series on GGPoker and PokerStars’ WCOOP festival are now gearing up for the home stretch and the numbers so far suggest that the two series have had a great outing.

Across the two festivals, more than $150 million in prize money has been generated. WCOOP has had a fair share of the pie at $72 million while the prestigious WSOP international series has produced over $78 million across 27 events.

Despite a strong turnout, there have been a few overlays. Most of them have come on the WCOOP festival but the shortfall in the $20 million guaranteed WSOP Online Main Event means that players across the two series have enjoyed a combined overlay of over $1 million.

But neither operator will mind: despite these shortfalls, the pair combined have profited around $4 million.
