The 96 players involved receive a minimum of £7,500. With a first round win, this increases to £15,000 with the seeded players already assured of this amount.
Reaching the third round sees the players claim £25,000, while this rises to £35,000 for reaching the Last 16. Quarter-Finalists in any case receive £50,000, while semi-finals sees this amount double to £100,000.
The losing finalist takes home £200,000, while the winner takes £500,000 which evidenced by Gerwyn Price winning it last year is life changing money not only personally but also on the Order of Merit.
