World Series of Poker headed to Bally’s, Paris on Las Vegas Strip
by News 3 Staff
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The World Series of Poker will move to the Las Vegas Strip for the first time next year, Caesars Entertainment has confirmed.
The 53rd edition of the annual poker tournament will be held at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas starting on May 31, 2022, with actor Vince Vaughn serving as the Master of Ceremonies.
Next year’s move would bring an end to WSOP’s 17-year run at the Rio.
Caesars sold the off-Strip property back in 2019 to Dreamscape Partners, which will soon take over operations.
“As we approach the Final Table, we look back on yet another successful Main Event that exceeded expectations,” World Series of Poker Senior Vice President Ty Stewart said in a press release. “We are absolutely thrilled with this year’s turnout, both domestically and internationally. As we close out this chapter at the Rio, we are excited to have the iconic Vince Vaughn usher in a new era of WSOP at Bally’s and Paris next summer.”
