Register in advance to take advantage of a first-of-its-kind special deal for the biggest and best WSOP of all time

The 54th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) today announced that online registration for its return to the Las Vegas Strip at Horseshoe Las Vegas (formerly Bally’s) and Paris Las Vegas officially opens on Thursday, April 13. For the first time, prospective WSOP players have an additional option to save more by booking an entire trip package including resort accommodations and airfare, all with one click immediately following online registration at BravoPokerLive.com.

The new travel bundle booking process is made possible through Caesars Entertainment’s industry-leading Caesars Rewards Travel Bundle, making it easier than ever to secure the best prices on a stay at any Caesars destination in Las Vegas for the WSOP, all while earning reward credits through Caesars Rewards.

“This year’s WSOP is poised to break records with an unprecedented range of options to qualify for and attend the WSOP Main Event, widely recognized as the World Championship of poker,” the Senior Vice-President and Executive Director for the WSOP, Ty Stewart, said. “We’re excited to offer players an effortless and cost-effective way to book their entire trip to Paris Las Vegas and Horseshoe Las Vegas as they set their sights on becoming poker royalty this summer.”

The 2023 WSOP, which is from May 30 to July 18, 2023, will feature the largest slate of bracelet events in its rich history. With a whopping 608 tables, the series will also have the largest capacity to date and the expectation to shatter records becoming the biggest and best WSOP of all time.

The 2022 WSOP set records for the most prize money ever awarded at nearly $350 million and the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship, best known as the Main Event, hosted the second-largest field in the history of live poker with 8,663 entrants; just 110 entries short of the record. Anticipation is high for this year’s series, with international online poker giant GGPoker guaranteeing to qualify a minimum of 600 players and WSOP.com guaranteeing 111 Main Event seats from June 25 to July 8.

To avoid queues and congestion, the WSOP encourages players to utilize the online mobile registration process to sign up for events, register and pay online. Players who register online will need to visit the Champagne Ballroom located in the Le Centre Des Conventions in Paris Las Vegas one time before playing in their first event to verify their registration with valid identification upon arrival to the series. Once verified, players can simply pick events online via BravoPokerLive.com and utilize the self-service kiosks located throughout Paris Las Vegas and Horseshoe Las Vegas to print their seat cards and make their way directly to their table for play. In-person registration is also now available at the main casino cage inside Paris Las Vegas.

With FBM Brazil’s substantial contribution, the organisation aims to make an impact in supporting these communities.

Beyond financial assistance, FBM Foundation recognizes the power of awareness and advocacy in driving meaningful change. Through strategic communication efforts, the organisation aims to raise awareness for additional support from like-minded individuals and organizations.

At the heart of this donation lies a shared vision of creating a brighter, more inclusive world for all. By supporting Rio Grande do Sul, FBM Foundation reaffirms its commitment to making a tangible difference in the lives of those in need.
