Caesars Announces Plans For 54th World Series Poker Tournament In 2023

Caesars Entertainment is one of the top names in betting, and for good reason. The company is behind some of the top casinos in the U.S., such as Caesars Palace, Flamingo Las Vegas, Tropicana Atlantic City, Harrah’s Ak-Chin, and Lady Luck Casino Black Hawk. Additionally, Caesars has one of the top sports betting sites on the market with Caesars Sportsbook as well as a popular iGaming platform with Caesars Casino Online.

Caesars is once again looking to put on the World Series of Poker (WSOP) tournament for next year, with details just released surrounding the event. Here’s everything you need to know about the plans for the World Series of Poker 2023.

Caesars Releases World Series of Poker 2023 Details

In a newly posted press release, Caesars Entertainment has announced plans for the next World Series of Poker! The 54th WSOP will be taking place from May 30th to July 17th of 2023, with the Main Event taking place from July 3rd to July 17th. Two Caesars Entertainment properties will host the event between Paris Las Vegas and Horseshoe Las Vegas, both located on the Las Vegas Strip.

The Horseshoe Las Vegas location is still in the midst of a rebrand from Bally’s Casino, as Caesars has been working on the multi-million dollar project. The rebranding project is expected to finish up this month, marking the full change to Horseshoe Las Vegas. To celebrate the event, Caesars Entertainment is offering reduced room rates as players and fans begin to finalize their travel plans for the pivotal event.

The Main Event is what most of the poker players will have their eyes on, with the opportunities for huge prizes. However, other events will take place during the WSOP 2023, such as Mystery Millions. This particular opening event features a $1,000 buy-in for a No-Limit Hold-Em tourney.

The prizes for Mystery Millions are randomized, and winners will be able to take home anywhere from $10,000 to $1 million per knockout. Plus, Mystery Millions will feature a $1 million first prize. Matt Glantz took home the million-dollar prize in last year’s opening mystery bounty event.
