The World Snooker Championship final has arrived with Kyren Wilson and Jak Jones set to duel for glory, a place in the history books and a huge, wallet-lining prize money payday.


Another hefty total, just short of £2.5 million, will be split between competitors for their exploits at The Crucible in Sheffield over the last two weeks. Approximately a fifth of that total will be paid out to the winner of the showpiece encounter.

However, while the payday is more than healthy, reigning champion Luca Brecel infamously burned through his cash mountain following the 2023 tournament.

He immediately splashed £350,000 of his winnings on a Ferrari 488, and reportedly added other cars including a Range Rover and Porsche to his collection, deliberately forgoing his status as a millionaire in the process to "maybe feel that bit of pressure again, to recreate the feeling I had of just starting my career".

Unfortunately for Luca, he crashed out of the tournament in the first round on the opening day of the tournament. A brand new first-time champion will be crowned on Monday night.
