This December, Wynn Las Vegas will host the WPT® World Championship with the first ever $15 million guaranteed prize pool -- the largest single live tournament guarantee in the history of poker.
The 2022 WPT World Championship, a multi-tournament festival held at Wynn Las Vegas December 12–20, will consist of more than a dozen tournaments including three primary events: the Prime Championship, the Wynn Mystery Bounty and The World Championship – the tournament's marquee event with a $10,400 buy-in which will culminate with a televised final table.
“This is one of the most ambitious initiatives the World Poker Tour® has undertaken in our 20-year history,” said Adam Pliska, CEO of World Poker Tour. “We expect this to be a highly anticipated festival and are elated to be partnering with Wynn Las Vegas to bring this concept to life.”

The WPT World Championship features three “Day 1” flights on December 12, 13 and 14 that will culminate with the crowning of a champion on Dec. 20. Each of those starting days will include a “freezeout” format, with players permitted a single entry per flight.
A second televised event between Dec. 8-12, the inaugural 2022 World Poker Tour Prime Championship, will carry a $1,100 buy-in and $2 million guaranteed prize pool. The festival wraps Dec. 16-19 with the $2 million guaranteed Wynn Mystery Bounty, in which players have a chance to draw for cash prizes up to $100,000 after eliminating fellow competitors.
