Fantastic Value: WPT Global Runs $1,000,000 Tournament For Just $1

Fantastic Value: WPT Global Runs $1,000,000 Tournament For Just $1

Starting June 1, the new and upcoming poker operator WPT Global is running a poker tournament that offers fantastic value to all players. For a buy-in of only $1, the poker site guarantees a massive prize pool of $1,000,000. A substantial overlay is virtually guaranteed in this promotional tournament. We explain how to play the event and how to take advantage of the overlay.

Usually, tournaments with seven-figure guarantees have buy-ins of at least $100. But WPT Global's main focus right now is recreational players with smaller bankrolls that play primarily for fun online. That’s why they’re opting for an almost symbolic buy-in of only $1 in this tournament.

The tournament has no fee and allows unlimited re-entries across 18 starting flights from June 1 until June 29. The final day will be on July 3.

How to Increase Your Chances in the $1 for $1,000,000 Tournament

This event on WPT Global will have a huge overlay and with such a small buy-in will play more like a freeroll than like a regular tournament. This means you should treat this tournament to some extent like a freeroll. Many players will play hyper aggressively in the first levels knowing they can re-enter without much cost.

Here’s our go-to guide to freerolls. You can follow those three simple strategies in the $1 for $1,000,000 event as well to maximize your expected value in this tournament:

  1. Limp often: Try to see cheap flops early on and hit a decent hand to stack impatient opponents.
  2. Call liberally: Players overvalue their hands in freerolls a lot. Don't shy away with good hands when opponents make huge bets.
  3. No trapping: When you have a good hand yourself (e.g. JJ preflop, or a set postflop), play aggressively. People will call your bets & raises more often than not.

About WPT Global

wpt global

WPT Global is a licensed partner of the World Poker Tour - a platform where poker is fun and safe play is paramount. WPT Global is available in over 100 countries and decades of poker experience from the World Poker Tour organizers have gone into this poker software.

WPT Global aims to appeal to a large player pool and offers a generous welcome bonus for new players. To this end, the new provider advertises recurring freerolls for new players, as well as for players who have been with the provider for longer. WPT Global offers players several features that other poker sites don't have (or don't have to the same extent). Among those features are:

  • NFT Avatars: WPT Global is the first poker provider to offer players the opportunity to purchase personalized avatars as NFT (Non-Fungible Tokens) through the so-called Poker Heroes Club. A total of 9,999 avatars of different levels can be purchased and resold by players.
  • Crypto Deposits: In addition to classic deposit options, WPT Global also allows players to deposit and withdraw using numerous cryptocurrencies (currently Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Litecoin).
  • Global focus: Similar to GGPoker, WPT Global has a focus on the entire international market. This means that many tournaments are offered in Asian prime time. For players in Europe, these may be inconvenient time slots at times, but WPT Global thus ensures that the brand is also interesting for the booming Asian poker market.
