How To Enter the 2024 WSOP

Anyone over the age of 21 can enter the World Series of Poker! See below to find out how.

Enter online WSOP Satellites

By winning a series of online tournaments, or even a single satellite tournament, you can make your way to Las Vegas for next to nothing.

With some buy-ins starting from as low as $2, you’ll normally have to advance through three or four stages before claiming a WSOP seat.

Alternatively, you can buy-in for a greater amount at a later stage of the qualifying tournament.

Sites hosting online satellites include WSOP.com and GG Poker (non-US).

Note: Main Event entry is often received in cash, it is your responsibility to buy into the Main Event.

Enter a local WSOP Satellite

Poker rooms and land-based casinos all over America, Canada and even Europe will be teaming up with WSOP to host local qualifying events.

These qualifying tournaments will likely take longer and have higher buy-ins than online satellites – but are still a viable option for players looking to grab a seat at the WSOP.

Direct buy-In

Don’t want to play your way to Vegas? Got $10,000 lying around? Bring it to Vegas and buy directly in to the WSOP 2024 Main Event. Saving yourself from burnout and tiredness so that you’ve got a clear mind when it comes to showtime.

Qualify in Vegas

Short on funds this year? No fear, you can enter a live satellite in Las Vegas.

The WSOP hosts daily tournaments with buy-ins that come in way under the $10,000 Main Event cost. Players earn tournament chips that can be used in any of the WSOP 2024 gold bracelet tournaments.

The 2023 WSOP takes place from Tuesday May 30 through July 18 at Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas.

How does the WSOP work?

The World Series of Poker is made up of 95 live events and 20 online events. The events are in a tournament format, and every player in a given tournament starts with the same number of chips. The winner of each event is the last player standing, who then takes home the prize money and a WSOP bracelet.

Most of the events are variants of Texas Hold’em, however games such as Omaha and Seven-card Stud also feature.

All events have different buy-ins, and the number of entrants can differ, so the prize money will also vary. The winner of the WSOP Main Event will take home millions of dollars, as well as a coveted WSOP bracelet, worth approximately $500,000.

What is the buy-in for WSOP 2023?

Buy-ins for the 2023 World Series of Poker will start as low as $300 and go as high as $250,000. The buy-in for the Main Event is $10,000.
