While the curtains have closed on the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, the organizers are far from complacent. Their attention is now directed toward a new exciting winter stop — WSOP Paradise — set to make its debut this December.
To attract big numbers for this inaugural Bahamas extravaganza, *WSOP.com is introducing online packages for its US players in New Jersey, Nevada, Michigan, and Pennsylvania*.
This promotional initiative, aptly named the “Cash Games Countdown,” aims to entice players with grand packages valued at thousands of dollars. These comprehensive packages feature an entry into the $5000 buy-in WSOP Paradise Main Event, a five-night stay at a luxurious hotel, and a travel allowance of $750.
WSOP Paradise: Cash Games Countdown Overview
- Promo kicked off on August 8 and runs through August 29
- Players must earn 100 APPs (or Wagering Points) to acquire one entry into a random drawing
- Each player can accumulate up to four entries
- Random drawing takes place on August 30
- Winner of the draw receives a package that includes $5000 Main Event, a $750 travel stipend and a hotel stay
- Accessible exclusively to players in New Jersey, Nevada, Michigan and Pennsylvania
- Up to $100 in free play with first deposit
- Top-quality software
- Compete for WSOP bracelets & rings
The promotion which kicked off on August 8, is specially tailored for those who prefer playing cash games. Participating is effortless; players simply need to opt in and amass 100 Action Player Points (or Wagering Points, depending on their location) by engaging in their preferred real-money cash games. Upon successfully meeting this criterion, they secure one entry into a randomized drawing that allocates a prestigious WSOP Paradise package.
For every 100 points accrued, a player earns a single entry, and they can accrue a total of four entries for this drawing. For those aiming to enhance their qualification prospects, securing multiple entries is undoubtedly a strategic move worth considering.
It’s important to note that participants must earn at least 100 APPs or Wagering Points by August 29. Furthermore, they must partake in cash games on at least three separate days during the promotional window, while garnering a minimum of one APP each day to qualify. It’s also worth mentioning that Heads-Up cash games are excluded from this promotion.
The random drawing is scheduled for August 30.
Players on all four WSOP US platforms are eligible for this promotion, including WSOP NJ & WSOP NV sharing the same player pool, as well as WSOP MI & WSOP PA, which operate with segregated player pools.
WSOP’s New Paradise in the Bahamas
The revelation of WSOP Paradise came hot on the heels of the record-setting WSOP 2023 live series, which awarded well over $400 million. In the interim before the upcoming summer live series, the organizers also take charge of WSOP Europe in the fall. The 14th edition of WSOPE is set to grace the King’s Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, scheduled for October.
But now, there’s another exciting event in the mix, opening a fresh avenue for players to contend for coveted gold bracelets.
Taking place at the Atlantis Casino & Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas from December 3 to 14, the WSOP Paradise Caribbean stop features 15 bracelets akin to the WSOP Europe, yet grander in scale with more than $50 million in guaranteed prize money. This series will go toe-to-toe with the WPT World Championship at the Wynn Las Vegas and PokerStars’ EPT Prague, both orchestrating their events leading up to the holiday season.

WSOP’s online partner, GGPoker, has committed to qualifying over 1000 players for this new winter stop. Simultaneously, WSOP itself is playing its role by offering packages tailored to its US-based players.
