In addition to Tournament Dollars, we also offer special W$. W$ can be used to register into any qualifying special PokerStars event.
Special poker events include:
- PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) (http://www.pokerstars.com/caribbean-adventure/)
- European Poker Tour (EPT) (http://www.pokerstars.com/ept/)
- PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) (http://www.pokerstars.com/wcoop/)
- World Series of Poker (*WSOP) (http://www.pokerstars.com/wsop/)****
- Asia-Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) (http://www.pokerstars.com/appt/)
When you win a seat in one of the W$ special events, for example a seat in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure event in the Bahamas, you will be required to play the event and will not be allowed to unregister. If you win multiple seats in the same event, the value of these seats will be automatically credited to your W$ account. If you win a seat to a satellite for a W$ special event, you have the option to unregister from the satellite and receive W$. W$ can be used to register in any W$ special event.
