Last updated: September 5, 2023
With another record-breaking series in the books, players and organizers can now look forward to next year’s event — what can we expect for the 2024 WSOP?
The first details for next year’s series are expected at the end of 2023, with highlights coming in early 2024 and the full schedule and registrations details by April. Until then, we can mostly just speculate, but we can make some safe assumptions based on previous series.
WSOP 2024 will run from the end of May to mid-July, 2024; it’ll be hosted again in Paris and Horseshoe on the strip of Las Vegas. There will be over 90 live bracelets up for grabs, along with a huge slate of online bracelets for players on WSOP USA.
This guide will compile everything we know about the upcoming series in one spot and will be continuously updated as new information becomes available. As soon as we know, we’ll update this page with:

The 2024 edition has big shoes to follow: the 2023 World Series of Poker was the biggest in history in terms of turnout and prize pool. Over $425 million was paid out, and the 2023 WSOP welcomed over 250K players via online and live events!
The Main Event smashed all records, going into the history books as the biggest Main Event ever.
The World Series of Poker, 2024 will be the return of the annual poker series that takes place in Las Vegas. The event is expected to take place in mid-July, with events split between The Horseshoe and Paris Casino, Las Vegas. With 95 bracelets won in 2023, even more WSOP hardware is expected to be up for grabs next year.
It is too early to have specific information for the 2024 series. However, there are some safe predictions we can make based on prior events.
Here are some of the main open questions for 2024 series. We expect to fill in these blanks in early 2024.
The full 2024 WSOP schedule will be released in the spring of next year. Once this is published, we will update this page with the complete guide to events, buy-ins, and what is running when. 2023 had a schedule with 95 events, so we can expect next year’s program to meet or even exceed this target.
Usually, the WSOP adds new variants to keep players coming back. We will highlight everything new for the 2024 series as soon as the schedule is released.
in April, the WSOP typically releases information on how to register for the WSOP online or in person at the casino.
We’re hoping this record is short lived and we’ll be ready for another monster turnout next summer. The Main Event is the $10,000 buy-in crown jewel of the series. In 2023, it set a very high bar, setting attendance, prize pool, and first-place prize records. Will the WSOP try to beat this record again?
Apparently so. In a press release announcing the record in July 2023, WSOP Senior Vice President and Executive Director Ty Stewart is quoted as saying that organizers are “hoping this record is short lived and we’ll be ready for another monster turnout next summer.”
To achieve that, WSOP will have to pull out all the stops, working with their promotional partners to send more than a thousand qualifiers to the Main Event through promotions, satellites and giveaways.
As in previous editions, we can expect four starting flights to merge into two separate Day 2s before all players combine for Days 3 to 7. Players play down to a final table that will determine the winner.
As soon as next year’s promotions, qualifier info, and satellites have been announced, we will update this section with all the information you need to win your way to the 2024 WSOP.
However, in prior years, GGPoker has run The Road to Vegas, and the WSOP has run US Seat Sprints, giving away 100+ Main Event seats to players so that these core promotions can be expected next year too.
In the past, Seat Sprints have given away 112 Main Event seats to US players, whereas the GGPoker Road to Vegas has sent 600 players to previous WSOPs.
Players in Ontario, Canada, the US, and the Rest of the World (ROW) will all have their shot at winning a seat in the World Series of Poker via different routes.
Unless the WSOP launches in new markets between now and the 2024 live WSOP series, we can predict a US online bracelet series will run in:
We don’t expect the schedule to expand that much, so we can roughly assume there will be around seven events each week for players in Michigan and Pennsylvania. A more robust program comprising around 20 events is expected for New Jersey and Nevada players.
One open question is whether the Michigan online player pool will connect with the existing multi-state network in Nevada in New Jersey in time for the online series. If it does, it should mean even bigger bracelet events with higher prize pools — but whether it occurs or not and when remains to be seen.
All the legal hurdles for this have been cleared. In 2022, Michigan regulators signed the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement (MSIGA), a multi-state igaming agreement that permitted regulated online poker operators to combine their player pools across state lines.
PokerStars was the first to be approved by the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) and connected its Michigan and New Jersey player pools in January 2023. WSOP has everything in place — it has a Michigan online poker room and an existing multi-state online poker network that spans Nevada and New Jersey (and Delaware, with its partner 888).
Adding Michigan to its existing shared liquidity network would create the country’s first four-state online poker network. However, WSOP has not yet connected these two separate networks.
The two remained separate for WSOP 2023, with online bracelet events hosted separately on the two networks. It would be shocking if WSOP MI remains segregated even in 2024.
What is taking so long is unknown. The platform in Michigan is more modern than the aging NV/NJ software, so those two platforms would presumably have to be upgraded — but that shouldn’t be a major sticking point.
WSOP needs regulator approval to proceed, but PokerStars obtained this within months, and it already has experience running a multi-state network, so this shouldn’t be a problem either.
So hopefully, whatever wrinkles can be smoothed out in time, so WSOP can expand its US online poker network. It would be a boon for players and the operator alike.
As far as we know, PokerGO will release another substantial streaming schedule to accompany the 2024 series.
GGPoker ambassador and WSOP all-round enthusiast Daniel Negreanu will also be expected to relaunch his daily vlogs, becoming mandatory WSOP viewing for fans.
Kevmath can also be expected to return as WSOP Twitter Tsar tweeting all things WSOP throughout the series.
No dates have been released, but we expect the series to run from the end of May till mid-July 2024.
Yes, we expect a WSOP Online Series that runs from June into July across all US markets — New Jersey, Nevada, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
Absolutely. We can expect online promotions and qualification paths from WSOP and GGPoker to run in the months before the live series starts. In the past, GGPoker has run its Road to Vegas promotion, while the WSOP has run its US Seat Sprints — as these are so popular, we can expect to see them again.
Unless something drastic happens, the WSOP will take place in The Horseshoe Casino and Paris Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
With no signs of their partnership slowing down, we expect GGPoker and the WSOP to be working together once again to bring the WSOP to players live and online.
It’s hard to say for sure, but we think it is highly likely that by the summer of 2024, Michigan will have joined forces with the Nevada and New Jersey online poker networks?
The WSOP is usually a who’s-who of the poker world. Famous players often at the WSOP are Daniel Negreanu, Phil Helmuth, Shaun Deeb, Phil Ivey plus many more.
Although the schedule from PokerGO has not been released, we expect them to offer the same depth of coverage as seen in 2023 — with bracelet events and in depth Main Event coverage all streamed to their subscribers.
