All Winter Festival tournament participants earn ranking points, where prizes await the top 200 players at the end of the series, including the grand prize of a WPT Passport worth $12,400 for a live WPT event, travel and expenses.

If you win one of the Winter Festival tournaments, you can take part in the Champion of Champions freeroll, the winner of which will also receive a WPT passport worth $12,400 to take part in a live WPT event, travel and pay expenses.

All participants at the final table of a Winter Festival tournament will be entered into our Second Chance freeroll, which offers qualifiers for the WPT Passport and satellite tickets to the best players.

The fun begins on opening day, December 24, with the first two flights of our $400,000 Winter Main Event and the accompanying $40,000 and $22 Winter Mini Main Event. With several flights on offer on the first day, the second day of the Main Event takes place on January 14, while the Mini Main Event concludes on January 13.
