Step 1: Get a Caesars Rewards Card
In order to register for any WSOP event, you will need to have a Caesars Rewards card. If you haven’t already, you can get a new card at the Caesars Rewards front desk at the Paris convention area entrance. You will also need to present a valid government-issued picture identification, such as a state-issued driver’s license or a country-issued passport, to obtain the card, so be sure to bring your ID.
If you have previously signed up for a Caesars Rewards card and lost/forgot to bring it to the WSOP, you should request a re-print of your card and not obtain a new one. Caesars Rewards re-print kiosks will also be available in the Champagne Ballroom.
Having a Caesars Rewards card with you will allow for a smoother process to register for an event and cash out for any events when a payout is earned.
