The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has returned for 2024 and it is bigger and better than ever before.

Where Will the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP) be Held?

Just as last year, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) will be jointly hosted by two venues, after the success of Bally’s and Paris casinos over the past two years. While Paris remains as it is, Bally’s has since undergone something of a makeover in recent times, having been transformed into the Horseshoe Las Vegas in 2023.

With the Thunderdome ever-present at the Horseshoe, the TV cameras will descend on the two venues, with most of the final table coverage you see on CBS Sports – who have retained the broadcast rights – coming from the Horseshoe. Just like in 2023, Paris will host the majority of the Day 1’s, with the iconic Paris Ballroom once again inspiring players of all levels inside one of the best poker rooms in the world to play in.

With over 150,000 square feet available between Paris and the Horseshoe Las Vegas, over 600 poker tables will play host to the action, with organizers expecting a record attendance in 2024 to build on the incredible player fields seen 12 months ago.


Changing its name from the MGM Grand Hotel to Bally’s in 1986, the building initially built in 1973 has been part of the Caesars’ Entertainment empire for half a century and has changed look too, with the iconic ‘Horseshoe’ branding prevalent throughout the new grounds.


Paris Las Vegas opened on September 1, 1999 as part of the growth of Bally’s Las Vegas. There were originally plans for a full-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower, though this was soon scrapped after discovering that it would interfere with the nearby Harry Reid Airport. So instead, they settled on a 1:2 scale model to go alongside their 3:2 scale L’Arc de Triomphe. Even with the scaled-down models, Paris Las Vegas is a must-see for any visitors to Sin City.

World Series of Poker (WSOP)


This year’s WSOP schedule will have 99 live bracelet events to match last year and an online series that will run simultaneously. However, if you’re planning on playing the online series, it can only be accessed on if you’re in Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania or Michigan. This represents a growth of four states from just one in 2022.


The 2024 World Series of Poker (WSOP) is going a very special year of events, as there is a unique prize on offer. Last year’s WSOP Main Event, which costs $10,000 to play saw American Daniel Weinman win a record-setting top prize of $12.1 million as he beat Steven Jones to the title of World Champion.

Anyone who enters this year’s World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event will go into a draw to win entry back into ‘The Main’ for ‘life’ – or to be precise 30 years. The prize, which will only become activated if the 2006 record attendance of 8,773 is broken, is non-transferrable, but as long as you live to see them, is effectively worth $300,000 – 30 times the entry fee. The winning player will be drawn from the total entries on Saturday, July 8.

“It’s time to turn the page and begin the countdown to 2024,” said the WSOP’s Executive Director and Senior Vice-President, Ty Stewart. “Records are made to be broken. We’re busy on improvements to make sure 2024 is both the biggest and best event in poker history. Mark your calendars and bank those vacation days. We’ll see you in Vegas.”

World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2024 MAIN EVENT DATES

This year’s World Championship of poker, $10,000 to enter, begins July 3 with Day 1a, the first of four Day 1 starting flights. Last year, the tournament broke a record that had stood since 2006 with 10,043 entrants way higher than the 8,773 topped by Jamie Gold 17 years earlier. Daniel Weinman from Atlanta, won it and while this year might break new ground, the record may fall again, with the 2024 WSOP Main Event running from July 3-17.

The Main Event will begin as the series itself starts to near its end, with Day 1a taking place on beginning on Wednesday July 3 and the final day of the Final Table playing down to a new world champion on Wednesday July 17 inside the Thunderdome at the Horseshoe Las Vegas.

There are four starting Day 1 flights, each of which will be played over the first four consecutive days of the Main Event, starting at 12 pm, with five 2-hour levels comprising each Day 1. Each player starts with 60,000 chips, and the blinds start at 100/200 with a 200 chip BB ante.

Players who reach Day 2 from flights 1a, 1b and 1c will play on the fifth day of action, Day 2abc on Sunday July 7. Players who progress from Day 1d will play on Day 2d before all the remaining players converge on Day 3, which takes place on Tuesday, July 9. There is only one day off scheduled for the day preceding the final table of nine players.

Players have the opportunity to register for the tournament until the end of the second level on either Day 2abc or Day 2d and the WSOP Main Event final table will be played over two days, July 16 and 17 with the winner being crowned on July 17.

2024 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Circuit & Exciting Events

WSOP pokergo

Just like in 2023, anyone who has already won a WSOP circuit ring or WSOP bracelet in the 2023/24 season, as well as anyone who wins in Las Vegas, will be eligible for entry into the 2024 Champions Reunion, which will be played at the resumption of the series. This invitation only event has an amazing $1 million prize pool and last year was one of the highlights of the series.

The 2024 WSOP Champions Reunion takes place at the start of the series this year, starting on May 28. Some of the other highlights of the 2024 World Series of Poker (WSOP) include the $500 WSOP Kickoff (May 29) and $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em Championship which kicks off on May 30.

Others unmissable events include the $1,000-entry Mystery Millions, which takes place from May 30 with a guaranteed first place and guaranteed $1,000,000 top bounty. Players who eliminate another player will draw tickets for up to $1 million from Day 2 onwards.

World Series of Poker (WSOP) Satellite Tournaments

Satellite tournaments are organized into various tiers, each offering distinct opportunities for players. In Tier 1 satellites, winning a single tournament grants entry into the desired target tournament, such as the prestigious Main Event. Tier 2, provides a chance to win a seat in a Tier 1 satellite. This tiered structure can extend further, with multiple tiers leading up to participation in the main tournament.

The presence of additional tiers offers players a cost-effective path to the target tournament, although it requires winning multiple tournaments along the way. It’s worth noting that Tier 4 and Tier 5 satellites often have entry fees below $1, enabling players to enter multiple times without incurring significant expenses, increasing the chances of a fortunate streak.

At present, exclusively provides satellite tournaments for this year’s Main Event. However, as the summer approaches, it is highly likely that numerous US-facing platforms will also offer opportunities for players to satellite their way into the Main Event.

World Series of Poker (WSOP) Registration for 2024

If you’re interested in playing an event at this year’s World Series of Poker (WSOP), you can register for events either in-person or online. US players will just need to bring their ID, whereas non-US players will need to bring their ID and a formal proof of address (such as a bank statement or utility bill).

The main registration area is located in the Champagne Ballroom, near the front end of the Paris Convention Center. Opening from Tuesday, May 28 at 9:00am, it will remain open 24 hours a day, non-stop through July 17 as players can register for events at any time of the day or night.

Guests are required to present valid picture identification, along with their Caesars Rewards card and payment to enter events. Loyalty Card: All players are required to have a Caesars Rewards loyalty card to enter World Series of Poker (WSOP) events. To obtain a card for new players, or to request a reprint of your card if you have previously signed up for one, players can visit the Player Services area in the Champagne Ballroom or visit one of the card reprint kiosks. A valid picture identification such as a state-issued driver license or a country-issued passport is required for a Caesars Rewards card.

It is important to note, players who lost or forgot to bring their physical Caesars Rewards card with them to the World Series of Poker (WSOP), should request a re-print of their card and not a new card. Caesars Rewards re-print kiosks will also be available in the Champagne Ballroom, allowing those a quick way to get a physical card when that’s the only need they have.

ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR 2024 World Series of Poker (WSOP)

This year, online registration is once again handled by WSOP vendor Bravo Poker Live. Beating the queues by registering online, you’ll need to play attention to the deadlines that apply for bracelet events. These are easy to follow and make sense for each tournament, with three easy ways you can pay for your event entry online:

  • Wire Transfer – This method can be used for all buy-in levels, but you must register at least 14 days before the start of the tournament to be eligible to use it.
  • Credit Card – This option is only available for buy-ins of $10,000 and under. The accepted card types are Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and Diners Club. Your card will need verification before it can be used, but you can use it until the end of the series once you’ve done so.
  • ACH – This method can only be used for buy-ins of under $10,000.
    Pre-registration is already available, so if you’re looking to head down to the WSOP this year, why not save yourself the headache and register online.


Although in many walks of life, COVID-19 or Coronavirus is not having the same effect as in recent years, there is still a risk of infection and illness. The WSOP has no special rules or restrictions in place for 2024, so will follow local, state, and CDC guidelines that are in already in place at the time of the WSOP taking place.

There is also no vaccination requirement to play in this year’s WSOP, but players are expected to follow the CDC safety guidelines at all times. At the time of writing, the Nevada state guidelines do not require masks to be worn indoors, though it is still an option for players who wish to do so, and many top players still do so, including Isaac Haxton among others.


The World Series of Poker is expected once again to return to King’s Casino in Rozvadov on the border between Czech Republic and Germany. The town has been the host of the WSOPE since 2017, and the partnership looks stronger than ever, so expect a schedule to be announced later in the year.

Last year, the WSOPE featured 15 bracelet events between October 25 and November 15, including the €10,000 WSOP Europe Main Event. More details are likely to be released after the summer series has concluded.
