The series consists of 47 events with a wide range of buy-ins ranging from $11 right up to $1000 covering both NLHE and PLO variants.
Every day, three tournaments are scheduled to run featuring various formats including freezeouts, knockouts, rebuys, deepstacks & monster stacks, turbos.

The festival culminates in a $320 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Main Event boasting $200,000 in guaranteed prize money.
As is the tradition with all the Online Championships series on WSOP.com, the winner of the Main Event on top of the first-place prize money will walk away with a wrestling-style Champion’s belt to commemorate their victory.
Compared to the previous year, the Winter Online Championships series is nearly identical featuring the same number of tournaments and total guarantees and almost the same formats.
Next in the line up is the WSOP Online Championships held over the summer and coinciding with the World Series of Poker live series. Finally, the Fall Online Championships series—the last of the four of this prestigious brand—runs in October.

It begins on February 17 with tourneys offering higher buy-ins ranging from $215 all the way up to $1000.
Every day one event is scheduled spanning 12 days, with each of them awarding a coveted gold ring to the winner.
Thirteen of fourteen ring events are dedicated to No Limit Hold’em; while one is played in Pot Limit Omaha event.

As with every other Online Circuit series running this year, the series is promoted by a Player of the Month Leaderboard with $10,000 in prizes, a $25K worth Freeroll, and a Grinder’s Second Chance Freeroll.
Furthermore, players competing in the Circuit series have also a chance to earn a seat to the Year-End Championship sharing a guaranteed prize pool of $250,000. The winner of this event will be awarded an official WSOP gold bracelet.
WSOP Winter Online Circuit Super Series Ends on High Note
Both the series are scheduled on the heels of the WSOP Winter Online Circuit Super Series that kicked off the 2021 Circuit season.
More than $1 million was guaranteed across 18 ring events. Every single event that ran smashed its guarantee, with one even more than tripling its advertised guarantee.
The $525 buy-in Main Event drew 583 players and 310 rebuys to build a prize pool of $446,500— the largest across the festival. In total, more than $3 million in prize money was awarded across 18 events.
A similar performance is expected to be seen between the two upcoming series kicking off on February 14.
