The 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online at GGPoker is now over, and while the overall numbers haven’t reached the levels seen last year, the 2021 series has been a success with over $ 90 million in total prizes paid out.

While this has declined significantly from the nearly $ 150 million series in 2020, last year’s series stood at the height of pandemic lockdowns, and this year’s series was more modest from the start. departure, with 21 fewer events and lower guarantees.

There have been a total of 33 games this year in the GGPoker 2021 WSOP Online, and all the events are now in the books. The generated series over $ 90 million in total prizes, with nearly $ 4.5 million in profits for the operator.

This profit came despite missing the mark in the Main Event. The Big Show Online attracted over 4,000 admissions, but that wasn’t quite enough to hit the $ 20 million guarantee. It was close, however, falling just over $ 500,000 below the optimistic mark.

Throughout the series there was more than 125,000 admissions in total. This meant that the 33 games in total combined for $ 90,175,863 in total prizes.

GG WSOP 2020 vs 2021: year-to-year comparison

Compared to 2020, the numbers were down a bit, but in large part, that’s because it was expected to be smaller. There were 21 fewer events this year to start, and the smaller schedule of 33 games this year, compared to 54 in 2020, meant the raw numbers were a bit smaller.

On average though, the games were the same size, averaging just over $ 2.7 million per game.

Comparing specific similar events between 2020 and 2021, it’s probably not surprising that the total number has been smaller this year. What is perhaps more surprising is that a few events, like HU NLH Championship, beat last year’s numbers.

Beat guarantees

There were 13 guaranteed events, with just over $ 51 million in total guarantees. It started off really well with the very first event crushing his $ 1 million guarantee by over 40%.

At the end, the only guaranteed game that did not reach the promised total was the Main Event.

Even that one was close, raising $ 19,437,000 of its $ 20 million guarantee. The extra cash in other games more than made up for this shortfall, resulting in a total profit for the operator of over $ 4.4 million.
