Amid mounting anticipation for the unveiling of the full schedule, the World Series of Poker has deployed satellites for the WSOP 2024 Main Event.
This February, a dozen seats are on the line for WSOP.com US players across the four states where the platform operates.
For players from New Jersey and Nevada, both sharing the same player pool, WSOP.com will conduct one satellite each on Saturdays and Sundays, ensuring one seat valued at $10,000. For players in Michigan and PA, there’s a single satellite every Sunday.
This is the first major push to award ME seats to WSOP 2024. The first satellites are often some of the softest online. Players who don’t yet have an account at WSOP USA still have time to sign up for an account and play these satellites.
- Up to $100 in free play with first deposit
- Top-quality software
- Compete for WSOP bracelets & rings
The NV/NJ satellites each weekend are:
- Saturdays at 7:30 pm: $320 buy-in, guaranteeing one $10K Main Event Seat
- Sundays at 6:30 pm: $215 buy-in, guaranteeing one $10K Main Event Seat
Meanwhile, Michigan and Pennsylvania players have a single $215 entry fee satellite.
- Sundays at 7:00 pm: $215 buy-in, guaranteeing one $10K Main Event Seat
These satellites will continue throughout February, presenting multiple opportunities for players to secure their chance at the world’s richest poker tournament.
Don’t miss your chance to make history in what’s set out to be the most epic year yet
The winner of the satellite will be granted $10,000 in tournament buy-in chips that can be used for any WSOP Gold bracelet event at the 55th World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, Nevada, including the Main Event, of course.
Last year, the WSOP 2023 Main Event set all-time records, attracting over 10,000 players and generating a staggering $93.3 million prize pool. Anticipating a similar turnout this year, officials are optimistic about surpassing the previous year’s achievements.
“Don’t miss your chance to make history in what’s set out to be the most epic year yet,” WSOP wrote on its website.
WSOP 2024 Full Schedule to be Revealed Next Week
The 55th World Series of Poker is slated to run from May 28 to July 17 at Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas, with the Main Event scheduled from July 3 to 17.
While the complete schedule is set to drop next week, three additional events have been confirmed alongside the iconic Main Event: the classic Millionaire Maker, Senior’s Championship, and the returning Mystery Millions making its second appearance.
Last year, the debuting Mystery Millions, with its $1000 buy-in, drew an enormous field of 18,188 entrants, resulting in a prize pool of over $16 million.
Although yet to be officially announced, staple events such as the $1500 Monster Stack, $400 Colossus, Ladies event, and Player’s Championship are expected to make a return.
As is customary each year, players can anticipate yet another colossal event on the opening weekend, traditionally attracting upwards of 20,000 entries, reminiscent of last year’s Gladiators of Poker.
Considering the widespread appeal of the Mystery Bounty tournament format, it’s highly probable that the organizers will introduce several additional games adopting this format, complementing the already popular Mystery Millions event.
In total, approximately 95 to 100 live bracelet events are anticipated alongside two dozen online bracelet events.
