Caesars Entertainment has announced that the World Series of Poker will return to Las Vegas in 2023, with the prestigious tournament taking place from May 30 to July 18.
The event, which set new records during the 2022 edition, will return to Paris Las Vegas and Bally’s Las Vegas (soon to be Horseshoe Las Vegas), and marks the 54th annual edition of the poker tournament.
Features of the WSOP 2023 tournament include the $10,000 No-Limit Hold-em World Championship (The Main Event) and Mystery Millions – a $1,000 buy-in No-Limit tournament with bounties ranging from $10,000 to $1m for each knockout round and a $1m first prize.
“The historic debut of the WSOP on the Las Vegas Strip delivered in a big way, and we’re excited to announce our summer 2023 dates in time for the holidays,” said World Series of Poker Senior Vice President and Executive Director Ty Stewart.
“Poker players and fans can now officially mark their calendars and maybe even book their loved ones or themselves a trip to the WSOP as a holiday gift. We’re glad to be back at Paris Las Vegas and the future Horseshoe Las Vegas for another exciting chapter in the tournament’s history as these two resorts raised the bar in hosting last year’s event.”
This follows on from the 2022 WSOP tournament, which saw a record $347.9m total prize pool from 197,626 entrants from over 100 countries.
This year’s Main Event also marked the second-largest field in live poker history, with $80.8m in the prize pool of nearly 9,000 entrants.
Whilst Caesars has announced the dates and location of WSOP 2023, it has not yet revealed a full itinerary, with more details to be disclosed at a later stage.
Caesars also updated fans that it will roll out reduced room rates across its Las Vegas resorts during the tournament, offering a discount code for those wishing to attend WSOP 2023.
“With more than six months to go from the start of the next WSOP, you can already feel the anticipation building at our resorts,” said Jason Gregorec, SVP and General Manager of Paris and Horseshoe Las Vegas.
“The tournament delivered unforgettable moments during its debut on The Strip, and we’re excited to welcome back poker’s premier event of the year. We can’t wait to see the first WSOP Main Event champion crowned at the new Horseshoe Las Vegas.”
