Poker Games

What is a Flight tournament?

A tournament with flights is where there are many qualifying rounds (or day 1s) that filter into the condensed day 2 or final day. Generally, the top X% (typically 10-20%) will qualify for the final day from each flight. Once a flight reaches this percentage of players remaining, it will automatically stop, and all remaining players will move onto the final day (typically with whatever chip stack they finished with). Flights can also conclude based on:

  • Levels
  • Time
  • Number of players remaining

In some flights, no prizes will be awarded, and in others, there can be prizes for the flight days. Once all the flights have concluded, a final day will start as per the schedule. Make sure to check the WPT Global MTT Lobby to find out when your final day starts!

You buy into the flight for the full buy-in amount, and you cannot buy directly into the final day. Generally, you can enter more than one flight for the same tournament. If you qualify more than once for the final day, your best (biggest) chip stack will be the one you start the final day with (all of your other chip stacks will be removed from the final day automatically).


Example of how flight tournaments can work

What is a satellite tournament?

A satellite tournament is where you can attempt to win your way into a larger tournament for a smaller percentage of the buy-in. Typically the cost of entry to a satellite will be 10-20% of what the larger tournament costs. Satellite tournaments can award more than 1 entry into the larger tournament, depending on how many entries the satellite gets. For example, an $11 ($10 + $1) satellite tournament will pay out 1 entry to a $110 ($100 + $10) tournament for every 11 players that enter the satellite.

Some satellites pay out generic tickets of a certain value, instead of direct entry to a specific tournament, which can be used for any tournament with a buy-in of that value.

What is a guaranteed tournament?

A guaranteed tournament is where there is a certain prize pool that is guaranteed to be paid out, no matter how many players have entered it. The prize pool can increase if the tournament gets enough entries, but it will not pay less than the guarantee. For example, if a $55 ($50 + $5) tournament with a $2,000 guarantee gets 22 entries, it will still pay out $2,000. If the same tournament got 63 entries, then it would pay out a total of $3,150 (63 x $50).

How do I use the tournament ticket/s from my Backpack?

To use your ticket/s go to the 'Tournaments' tab in the lobby, select a tournament with buy-in equal to the amount of your ticket and register for the tournament.

What hands are eligible for cash game jackpots?

Each jackpot table details the payouts available for each qualifying hand. A player must use both of their hole cards and hold the winning hand in order to be eligible for any jackpot payout.

Fairness & Security

What is WPT Global’s fair play algorithm?

At a high level, our fair play algorithm is designed to ensure that every player has a fair chance to win and to enhance every player's experience.

We do this by limiting the number of extremely skilled players that can sit at each table. For new players, this enhances the experience by giving them a fair chance to win. You will not find yourself at a table with 8 professional players and you will mostly be playing against players of a similar skill level.

For professional players, we believe this also improves the experience by limiting the number of other professionals at your table.

It doesn't matter if you're a new recreational player or a pro, you'll always find a place in the game of your choice, as we have one of the largest cash game player pools.

How do WPT Global ensure the games are safe and secure?

Our team of 50+ industry experts and former poker professionals utilize AI detection tools to monitor games 24/7 for bots, RTA, collusion, and multi-accounting. Every security case is reviewed independently by at least two team members to ensure that we reach an accurate and objective conclusion.


Where can I see the rules of each game?

Each game has a help page. This is found either in the menu of the game or via an info button. This help page explains all the rules of the game.

What is the maximum bet amount on casino games?

The maximum bet amount can vary between games. The help page of each game details the maximum bet amounts for that specific game.

What does Return to Player (RTP) mean?

The RTP describes the amount a player is expected to earn back while playing a slot games over time. The RTP percentage varies from casino game to casino game.

Can you win real money at WPT Global?

Yes, you can win real money at WPT Global. WPT Global also offer the chance to win seats in any number of exciting live tournaments.
