How to Play the $1 Into $1 Million

$1 for $1 million

Starting flights for the $1 Into $1 Million take place every Wednesday and Sunday from July 20 to August 17. The top 13% of players will advance to the event’s Day 2 which takes place on Sunday, August 21.

Players can enter all the Day 1s as the event is implementing a “Best Stack Forward” policy.

Day 2 will then see the field whittled down to its final eight players, with Day 3 being live streamed on the WPT Twitch channel on Monday, August 22.

The event will also have a huge overlay, which even gives more value to players as WPT Global General Manager, Alex Scott pointed out.

This event alone will cost us in excess of $900k. It’s the most generous tournament overlay since the guys at Stars…
