Online festival guarantees $2 million and runs April 18-26 on 888poker

The WPTDeepStacks series is taking to the online streets at 888poker, with a massive tournament festival set for April.

The WPTDeepStacks London Online runs April 18-26 on the 888poker main client. The series offers 16 events over the nine-day festival, with a combined $2 million in guarantees across all events.

Players in many areas of the world can access the 888poker platform, although the online poker site can’t be legally accessed from the U.S. Players in legal jurisdictions can compete for their part of the $2 million in guarantees, which culminates in a massive multi-flight Main Event.

Here’s a look at how to play in the WPTDeepStacks Online, including an overview of the biggest events in the series:

How to register for 888poker

The WPTDeepStacks London Online series plays out on the 888poker main client. This platform offers legal poker games in many areas of the world but isn’t available to U.S. players.

While 888poker does operate online poker sites in New Jersey and Delaware in the U.S., those platforms aren’t connected to the main 888poker client.

To see if you’re located in an area that allows access to 888poker, navigate to the 888poker homepage and scroll to the bottom. Click the “Download Now” link at the bottom right of the main lobby.

If there’s an 888poker network that’s legally playable in your country, that version of the platform will automatically download to your computer or mobile device. U.S. players, for example, will see the New Jersey version of 888poker automatically downloading after clicking the link.

If you’re in Europe or another area of the world with legal access to the international 888poker platform, you’ll see the 888poker main client start downloading to your computer. From there, you’ll be able to deposit funds, play WPTDeepStacks London Online events, and cash out if you win.
