2017/18 Global Casino Championship Participant Points
In addition to cash prizes, winners receive points based on the number of participants and payout percentages in each ring event. Participants can qualify for the 2017/18 Global Casino Championship in one of the following ways: (a.) win a 2017- 18 Circuit Main Event at any domestic or international stop (b.) win a 2017-18 Circuit “Casino Championship,” which is defined as the participant at each stop who accumulates the most points throughout the 12-event gold ring schedule at any domestic or international stop (c.) be one of the top 50 cumulative point earners over the entire season who hasn’t otherwise qualified (Domestic tour only). Each of these participants will receive a “free roll” seat into the culminating event. In addition to those who qualify for entry due to an automatic invite or cumulative standings, certain participants will be eligible to buy-in to the WSOP Global Casino Championship for $10,000. The top 100 ranked participants from the WSOP Participant of the Year from the previous year (2017) are eligible to buy into the Event for $10,000 (thus the 2017 WSOP POY Standings in this case). In addition, any participants that have won any official “ring event” at a 2017-18 Circuit Event are also eligible to buy into the Event for $10,000. All additional $10,000 direct buy-ins from eligible ring event winners and 2017 WSOP POY will be added to the $1 million the WSOP is putting into the prize pool.
Seats into the WSOP Global Casino Championship have no cash value and are non-transferrable.
Points are awarded based on the below point matrix.
*Note: There will likely be several duplicate names who automatically qualified. Each participant can only qualify once, therefore the duplicate names will be scrubbed and the next highest point earners in the cumulative point rankings will qualify.
**Note: Participants excluded from Caesars properties and its affiliates are not eligible to participate or qualify for the WSOP Global Casino Championship.
