Are you ready to have your name written in the record books? The Winning Poker Network is out to make history by sending the first-place finisher of the inaugural $5 Million Venom tournament their $1,000,000 payment in the cryptocurrency of their choice, within minutes of the final hand!

In doing this, we’ll be making the biggest and fastest cryptocurrency payment ever made in the gaming industry!

We’re in the process of applying to the Guinness Book of World Records to make it official and will document the process and payment being made on the Blockchain for evidence of the record being broken.

And don’t worry, if you are the big winner and prefer your winnings sent to you via more traditional payment methods, we’ll give you the option to send the money back and we’ll get it to you another way.

Either way, you’ll go down in history!


  • The first ticket won by a player via satellite or Spin to Get In must be used for Day 1A of the $5,000,000 GTD Venom tournament on Tuesday, July 16th at 1pm ET. Players will be automatically registered to play on this date and cannot unregister. Satellite winners will be automatically seated when the tournament starts and will be blinded out if they do not show up to play.
  • You cannot sell your primary ticket, only players with multiple tickets may sell the extras.
  • If you have won multiple Venom tickets that you wish to sell, then you may do so at whatever price yourself and the buyer agrees upon. To do this, both parties must email [email protected] from their email address registered to their WPN player account and confirm the price agreed and that they’re willing to purchase/sell.
  • If you have one entry and wish to purchase additional entries, you may do so. If the extra entry (or entries) are not used by the end of late registration of the July 21st Venom tournament, you must wait until the next Venom tournament.
  • Only $2,650 Venom tickets are transferable. Tickets of any other kind for any other tournament are non-transferable and will expire within a year of their date of issue.
  • $2,650 Venom tickets are to be used exclusively for Venom tournaments.
