World Series of Poker Reveals 2022 Registration Info
The World Series of Poker begins in little more than one month. Who’s ready?
Well, you can’t be fully ready until you register…or at least know how you will register for 2022 WSOP tournaments. And the WSOP now has that information.
Caesars Rewards Card Required
Previous WSOP players are familiar with this routine. All players must possess a Caesars Rewards loyalty card. This is free and required to enter any tournament at the WSOP and receive any payout.
Those new to the process may sign up for a Caesars Rewards card online here. When visiting Paris, Bally’s, or any Caesars property, players can go to the Rewards center in the casino or Player Services desk in the Champagne Ballroom at Paris and request a physical card. However, there will be Rewards kiosks in the Champagne Ballroom that allow players to print cards after registering online.
Players who have registered in the past at any Caesars property, including the Rio, may visit said kiosk and simply obtain a reprint of their card.
Methods of Payment
This is rather straightforward. There are several ways to pay for WSOP buy-ins.
Cash: If this isn’t self-explanatory, you have bigger problems that buying in to the WSOP.
Credit/debit cards: The WSOP accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. There may be fees that will vary by card-issuing banks, typically 2.95% to 3.95% for American banks. International card-issuing banks charge 3.5% plus the $3 fee per transaction. When registering online at Bravo, there is a cap of $10K per buy-in. Players must possess a valid ID with the same name on the card to be validated at Paris, before the first tournament played. Verification is a one-time process only.
ACH (electronic bank payments): This is valid for players registering via BravoPokerLive.com online, wherein funds are transferred directly from the person’s bank account. There may be fees by the participating bank. Bravo charges a 2.75% processing fee plus $3 per event, which pay for the service provided to Bravo. These payments are immediate and require no waiting period, though there is a cap of $10K.
Wire transfers: Banks around the world facilitate wire transfers for a fee. Those fees will vary by bank, but the receiving bank will charge a $3 fee per transfer. This must be completed at least 14 days prior to the starting date of the event for which the player is registering.
Cashier’s checks: A cashier’s check must be issued by the registrant’s accredited bank. It can be made payable to the registrant himself or herself or Paris Las Vegas. There is a $3 fee per check, plus any fees the bank charges to issue the check in the first place.
Gaming chips: The chips must be from Paris Las Vegas or Bally’s Las Vegas only.
WSOP tournament buy-in chips: Players may obtain tournament buy-in chips from satellites at Paris or Bally’s.
WSOP tournament buy-in credits: These may be from WSOP-sanctioned satellites. If you have these credits, you will know it.
As was an option in years past, Bravo Poker Live allows players to register online. Players can start via this link to the WSOP page on Bravo.
Online registration is open now.
After a one-time sign-in with a name and password, players can log in and find an online home for WSOP registration. (In fact, most poker rooms in Las Vegas use the Bravo app, so this will be handy far beyond the World Series and even beyond 2022.
A Caesars Rewards card/account is required for Bravo online registration. Players will need to visit the Player Services desk in the Burgundy Room at the Paris Convention Center for one-time, in-person verification. They must show a valid ID with a photo, and if registered by credit card, the person must present that card. This must happen at least one hour before the start time of the event being played.
Players can register for multiple events at the same time.
After the one-time verification process, players can register for events online and simply visit a kiosk at Paris to print their seat assignment and receipt.
Players can begin registering for WSOP events now at Paris’ main casino cage. There is no need to walk to the ballroom area yet, as the main cage can handle all WSOP event buy-ins and most questions.
While in-person registration is recommended now, it may be difficult once the WSOP begins on May 31. Registration lines can quickly get out of control.
