Players can qualify for the 2017/18 Global Casino Championship in one of several ways (a.) win a Circuit Main Event at any domestic or international stop (b.) win a "Casino Championship," which is defined as the player 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 projected 128 players will receive a "free roll" seat into the culminating event.
