Depending on the type of Tournament you enter, you may or may not be eligible to win a valuable prize by winning that Tournament!
WAPL Free League - You are not legally allowed to win anything of monetary value. Our Free League Season tournaments also gain players points towards their WAPL Free League Ladder ranking to qualify them for the Free League Grand Final.
WAPL Pro League - You're buying in to play in an event that raises money for charity, and therefore are playing to win a cash prize based on your position at the end of the tournament! Our Pro League Season tournaments also gain players points towards their WAPL Pro League Ladder ranking to qualify them for the Pro League Grand Final.
As far as prizes for Pro League tournaments are concerned, depending on the number of players and the buy-in amount for the tournament, the final prize money will be distributed between the top ranking players!
In a Pro League Tournament with a buy-in, not all of that buy-in is returned in the prize pool at the end of the night. A portion of the buy-in goes towards the Grand Final Prize Pool to be paid out at the Grand Final, and a portion of it goes to a non-profit organisation in order to meet costs associated with the licensing and operation of the poker tournaments, and of course to raise funds. Funds raised by the non-profits through poker gaming functions go towards the betterment of the WA community, ensuring that your poker is also helping those in need!
The WAPL Pro and Free Grand Finals are the biggest tournaments of the season, and celebrate the end of the WAPL Seasons!
