WPT World Online Championships coming soon
The WPT and partypoker continue building on the two companies’ growing partnership. The Online Series finished up last week and the WPT World Online Championships will run July 1 to Aug. 9.
The new series features 15 championship events. The action is highlighted by the $10,300 buy-in Season XVIII WPT World Championship Online, running Aug. 1-8.
Partypoker promises some special prizes for the overall series winner. That includes a $15,000 seat into the Season XVIII WPT Tournament of Champions presented by Baccarat Crystal.
“With the live poker schedule likely to be empty over the traditionally hectic summer months, we have been working on plans for a huge online festival to provide an alternative for players that would normally migrate to Vegas,” partypoker managing director Tom Waters said.
“I’m delighted that we have been able to partner with WPT to revive the WPT World Championships and bring the series online for the first time.”
A full schedule for the WPT World Online Championships hasn’t been released yet. Here’s a look at just a couple events already released that are expected to cap the series. More will be posted as additional events are announced.

Battle it out with new ‘Club Games’ option
Partypoker recently launched its new Club Games feature, available for cash games with multiple stakes options. This allows a player to set up a game and accept and remove players, with stakes available up to $5/$10.
Club Games will be available on desktop and mobile. There is no limit to the number of clubs a player can join, and can create up to five clubs per person. The rake remains the same as a standard cash game.
The addition comes as more players asked for an option to play with friends during the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Partypoker used to offer private games and it’s been on our roadmap to bring in a new home games offering for a long time now,” partypoker managing director Tom Waters said.
“In recent months, we have been inundated with requests from players who wanted their own home games, so we decided to accelerate the rollout of our new Club Games interface. Initially, players will be able to create their own private cash games for friends to join using either a PC/Mac or mobile device, with the ability to create tournaments to follow.”

Galaxy of Freeroll finals set for Sunday
Everyone enjoys free money and 888poker is giving players plenty of opportunities. The site’s Galaxy of Freerolls promotion runs through June 7 and features more than $500,000 in guaranteed giveaways.
888 offers two daily $2,000 Venus Freerolls Monday through Saturday. On Sunday, a $10,000 Neptune Freeroll will be run with one happy astronaut/champion.
The final freeroll on June 7, aka the Super-Saturn Freeroll, will feature a $100,000 prize pool. Additional surprises, rewards, bonuses, and exclusive freerolls will also be on tap during the Galaxy of Freerolls.
Those looking to earn tickets in the $2,000 Venus need to complete “Space Missions.” Some of those challenges include:
- The Tournament Voyager – Simply play tournaments with buy-ins of $3 and earn a pair of tickets.
- Ace-King Apollo Landing – Win a hand holding Ace-King in a cash game and earn two tickets.
- Casino and Sports Atlantis Orbiter – Place bets totalling $5 or more on any casino game or sports bet and claim but two tickets.
Those hoping to land in a $10,000 Neptune need to complete two or more Space Missions in one week. Players can complete one Space Mission per day and will need at least one more during the week.
How do you play in the $100,000 Super-Saturn Freeroll on June 7? Simply become an 888 astronaut by completing 14 or more Space Missions.
Players can also enjoy a “Daily Spin” to win a ticket to a $1,000 Space BLAST Freeroll.

SCOOP may be over, but major tournaments continue
A massive SCOOP is now in the books, but players still have plenty to look forward to the on site’s multiple platforms. That includes big Sunday events and daily guarantees.
Events feature rich graphics and buy-ins from as little as $1. Players can sprint along the race track eliminating opponents in dynamic tournaments that combine progressive knockout, sit and go, and shootout formats.
Players can win more than $100,000 in prizes and bounties in a race toward the Grand Tour finish line.
Grand Tour is now available on the .COM platform and will launch on real money soon. The game is expected to launch on .EU and .UK soon. Here are some features and how to play:
- Buy-ins range from $1 to $60. The higher the buy-in, the closer to the finish line players start.
- Players at the same buy-in level compete in “sprints.” These are four-player progressive knockout sit and go tournaments that last about five minutes.
- As players knock each other out, their own bounty values increase. They then move to the next sprint, where they will be matched with players of similar bounty values.
- When someone is eliminated, his value is split two ways. A percentage is added to the winner’s value and a percentage is awarded as cash directly into his account.
- This cash prize can be multiplied, meaning players could win more than $100,000 at higher stakes.
- Eliminated players keep any winnings from knockouts.
- When a player wins a sprint, they can jump right into the next one or save it for later. Every completed sprint gets players closer to the finish line, where they can be crowned a Grand Tour champion.
