2020 WPT World Online Championships

$1.5M Of Prizes Guaranteed in the WCOOP Sweepstakes


The massive $10 million guaranteed 2020 World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) Main Event is less than a fortnight away and PokerStars is making it possible for you to play in it for free. How? Via the exciting WCOOP Sweepstakes.

WCOOP Sweepstakes are a new, fun way for PokerStars players to get their hands on WCOOP Main Event tickets for free. Each ticket is worth a cool $5,200, which, let’s be honest, is outside the constraints of most players’ bankrolls. Not any more because there are $1.5 million worth of prizes, including 54 Main Event tickets, set to be won in the WCOOP Sweepstakes.

There’s a WCOOP Sweepstake held every day, except Saturday, at 12:00 a.m. ET. Three $5,200 WCOOP Main Event tickets are guaranteed to be won in every sweepstake. An additional $68,000 worth of WCOOP tickets are won each day, too.

It is super simple to be in with a chance of winning a $5,200 ticket. All that’s required is to play in a WCOOP tournament and you’ll receive between one and three entries to the next available sweepstake.

Playing in a WCOOP tournament with a buy-in up to $55 earns you one WCOOP Sweepstake entry. Enter a WCOOP tournament with a buy-in between $55 and $530 gifts you two entries. Finally, you receive three sweepstake entries for each WCOOP tournament you play that have a buy-in above $530.

Only WCOOP events are eligible for this promotion and it is only your initial buy-in that is used to calculate your sweepstake entries; rebuys and add-ins, for example, are not taken into consideration.
