2021 WSOP Satellite Winner Information

PLAYERS WHO HAVE WON A WSOP SATELLITE CAN BEGIN TO CLAIM SEATS STARTING September 30, 2021 AT THE WORLD SERIES OF POKER.

Players that win WSOP.com online satellites into a live World Series of Poker event will receive WSOP tournament buy-in chips to be picked up and used at the 2021 World Series of Poker at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. Players that win satellite packages that include buy-in chips and WSOP.com online tournament tickets will receive a combination of both. The online tournament tickets will be credited to player's WSOP.com account prior to the start of the event they won entry to. Players should carefully read the news box of each satellite to see if players are directly registered to the tournament, paid in tournament buy-in chips, or awarded online tournament tickets.

More information regarding satellite wins into an Online Bracelet Event can be found here.

Please note that WSOP tournament buy-in chips have no cash value and are used to buy-in to WSOP tournaments with a buy-in of $500 or greater. Players are responsible for keeping track of tournament buy-in chips awarded, and neither the WSOP nor WSOP.com will be responsible for replacing any lost or stolen tournament buy-in chips.

Winning players who wish to receive online tournament tickets instead of a seat to the 2021 WSOP should contact support.
