Registration Open For 2021 Wsop Online on Natural8

The 2021 World Series of Poker already started in the United States – online in only two states – but the international online series is set to begin on 1 August. GGPoker and Natural8 announced the full schedule this week, which consists of 33 WSOP gold bracelet events, the same number as is being awarded in the US.

It officially starts on 1 August, but the first flight for the first tournament actually begins 26 July. That means it is time to play some WSOP tournaments online!

Overview of WSOP Online 2021

As announced in April of this year, the 2021 WSOP is going to consist of two online series and two live series. First up was the US online action, which started on 1 July and wraps on 1 August after 33 bracelet events. Second, the international online series will match those 33 events but host them on GGNetwork sites like GGPoker and Natural8.

Later in the year, starting on 30 September, players from around the world will gather in Las Vegas again after the 2020 cancellation due to the pandemic. World Series of Poker executives hope that restrictions will lift around the world, as they announced a series of 88 tournaments that will run through 23 November at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. And even later in the year, the WSOP Europe will take place at King’s Casino in the Czech Republic.

For now, we focus on the WSOP Online 2021 on Natural8. This series will run 1 August to 12 September. Only a small portion of those tournaments will offer guarantees, but those add up to more than $50M. The Main Event alone will guarantee $20M.

Extras and Bonuses

The winner of the WSOP Online Main Event will win a prestigious title, coveted WSOP gold bracelet, and probably a seven-figure payout. But there is more. GGPoker will welcome the winner to Team Champions. The team started with the winner of the 2021 WSOP Super Circuit Series Main Event, Niklas Astedt, and will soon include the upcoming Main Event winner.

Members of Team Champions receive some noticeable perks, such as a custom avatar and special acknowledgement badge. The new member is also upgraded to GGPlatinum Fish Buffet status. Behind the scenes, he or she will also receive a unique affiliate code and a $50K tournament entry package. That prize package includes a $10K seat into the WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas and one to the WSOP Europe Main Event in Rozvadov, as well as the GGPoker Online Series Main Event later this year.

Players who compete in the WSOP 2021 Online via Natural8 will also play for exclusive rewards worth up to $400K in total.

Of course, satellites for the events are already running around the clock, so players can win seats for a fraction of the listed buy-ins.

Aussie Players

Note that players logging in from Australia cannot access Natural8 or GGPoker. However, players are welcome to relocate to an accepted country (hello, New Zealand!), even if only on a temporary basis. Players who choose to travel outside of Australia to play should contact customer support before the trip to ensure action is available in the destination country. In addition, Natural8 support staff can walk the person through the actions necessary to verify a new location and get started in the WSOP.
