The WPT and partypoker have again joined forces to bring you the 2021 WPT Online Series, which comes with a $3,200 Main Event featuring a $3 million guaranteed prize pool.
Every partypoker player has the chance to become a 2021 WPT Online Series champion thanks to the plethora of satellites feeding into the biggest events. The WPT Online Series runs from May 14 through June 2, with the massive Main Event shuffling up and dealing on May 23.
You need $3,200 to buy into the prestigious WPT Online Series Main Event unless you manage to bag yourself a cut-price seat via the many satellites, which you can find in the partypoker lobby right now.
These satellites start with a buy-in of only $0.01! They feed into $3.30 buy-in Phase 1 satellites, followed by $33 buy-in Phase 2. Make it through the Phase 2 satellites, and you progress to the weekly final, which take place on Sunday, where at least 15x $3,200 seats must be won!
The finals have no direct buy-in, meaning the most anyone will pay to win their seat is an affordable $33.

The WPT Online Series Main Event champion not only gets their hands on a huge first-place prize but also has their name engraved on the coveted Mike Sexton WPT Champions Cup, immortalising themselves in poker history. A luxurious Hublot watch is also given to the Main Event champion, commemorating their fantastic achievement.
Swedish superstar Christian Jeppsson won the equivalent tournament last year. Jeppsson was crowned the WPT Online Championship Main Event champion in 2020. He walked away with $923,785 for his victory, a victory the Swede called a career highlight. That is some accolade considering Jeppsson has won millions of dollars during his long and illustrious career.
WPT Online Series Mini Main Event Is Only Mini By Name
Do not worry if you miss out on glory in the $3,200 WPT Online Series Main Event because there is another opportunity to become a Main Event champion in the Mini Main Event.
The only thing mini about this tournament is its name because there is a cool $500,000 guaranteed prize pool for a $530 buy-in. Again, the partypoker tournament lobby is awash with satellites into this eagerly anticipated event.
Like the $3,200 Main Event, $530 Mini Main Event satellites are phased tournaments that start at only $0.01. The centrolls feed into the $0.55 buy-in Phase 1 before heading into the $5.50 buy-in Phase 2 satellites. These feed into the weekly final, which run on Sunday, and have a whopping 30x $530 Mini Main Event seats guaranteed!
The Mini Main Event finals have no direct buy-in, just like the Main Event, so the most you will pay to win a seat in this fantastic tournament is a mere $5.50.
Chris Donnachie, partypoker’s Head of Poker Room Management, said: “The inaugural WPT Online Series back in 2020 was the first purposely-designed WPT festival to be run fully online at partypoker, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to do this all over again.”
“The hallmark $3,000,000 guaranteed, $3,200 buy-in Main Event is complimented by an extensive range of exciting events such as the Mini Main Event and not one, but two of the world-renowned WPT500 events.”
Why Was The WPT Online Series Delayed?
The eagle-eyed among realised the WPT Online Series dates moved back a week from the original plans. There are two reasons for this happening.
First, following player feedback, the consensus was our players wanted more of a break after grinding what was a hugely successful POWERFEST and playing in other series’ elsewhere throughout April.
Second, there is a software update coming before the WPT Online Series where players will be prompted to change their alias again. This is part of partypoker’s ongoing efforts to reduce the effectiveness of third-party tools, further levelling the playing field for our customer base.
