2019 WSOP REGISTRATION INFORMATION

How to Register In-Person

Anyone who is in Las Vegas or visiting Las Vegas between now and the start of the 2019 WSOP may register in person at the Rio Casino Main Cage and buy into any event they choose, and receive their starting seat assignment and receipt. This guarantees your entry into the event. Beginning May 28 at 9am, the WSOP Main Cage opens up in the Rio Convention Center in the Tropical Ballroom, where players can register in-person 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through July 15, 2019. The WSOP Main Cage replaces the Rio Main Casino Cage permanently on May 28. Remember to bring a valid photo ID and your Caesars Rewards Loyalty card to register for events. Any participants residing outside the United States must also provide a second form of identification that includes a residential address.

NEW for 2019: In addition to cash, casino chips and cashier's check as methods of payment, in-person event registration can now be made using credit or debit card thanks to the use of the all-new CasinoPay® payment system powered by Bravo®. Simply use your credit/debit card at the cage windows for the most convenient way to enter the WSOP action (card processing fees apply).

How To Register Online (Advanced deadlines apply!)

Online registration is an option again this year using Bravo Poker Live, the vendor who has supplied the WSOP registration and payout program software since 2016.

For those that register and send payment online (meeting the deadlines required), you will reduce time spent at the Rio waiting in a line. For those that wait until the last minute, online registration will not be a suitable option. It is important to note the three ways to pay for Online Registration Buy-Ins:

  • Credit Card - for buy-ins $10,000 and under only (requires registration at least 72 hours prior for first time use). Accepted card payment types include Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover & Diners Club.
    • Once a credit card has been verified for WSOP 2019, this same card can then be used for online registration until the end of the WSOP.
  • Wire Transfer ( requires registration at least 14 days prior to event's start date )
  • Cashier's Check ( requires registration at least 14 days prior to event's start date )

Step-by-Step Details of Online Registration:

The process online will be hosted on the secure and encrypted Bravo Poker Live website, at the following URL: https://www.bravopokerlive.com/venues/wsop/.

Participants will be required to complete a one-time sign-up with Bravo Poker Live. This will save and password protect their registration information, enabling participants to have quick and easy return access for future events. This applies to both WSOP events and for other venues that work with Bravo Poker Tournament software. (If you have previously registered for the WSOP or other events via Bravo Poker Live in 2016, 2017 or 2018, you will already have an account and can just log-in).

Participants registering via Bravo Poker Live are also required to have a Caesars Rewards Card®/Account to online register. Participants can register for and activate a Caesars Rewards Account at https://www.caesars.com/total-rewards.

Once the participant completes the online process (including sending in payment) for one or more events, they then only have to show up in the Rio Convention Center "Rotunda Area" WSOP FasTrac Caesars Rewards Desk one hour prior to their event's start, to show proof of identification and have their identity verified. If the method of payment is credit card, the participant must also present the credit card used for the online registration (this must be in the name of the registered player). Once verified, the participant will receive seat assignments and receipts for any and all event(s) this participant has registered for and can proceed to their starting room, table and seat at the participant's leisure.

ADA accessible kiosks are available at designated locations, and staff are available at those kiosks to provide additional assistance if needed.

Fees

The payment required for participation in any Tournament event is the full amount of the event's entry fee, which includes an administrative fee to cover necessary Tournament staffing, materials and related administrative costs. There are additional fees applicable to online registration and the chosen method of payment. Additional Fees: There will be a $3 processing fee added to each event transaction for using the online registration system. Credit cards are charged an additional 2.95% fee to use this method of payment. (Fees for American Express are 3.95%) In addition, anyone who uses a wire-transfer or cashier's check are still subject to any fees their bank imposes (the WSOP does not impose any fees). These are typical fees used in the payment processing industry for online transactions of this nature, by the vendors and providers of these services. Participant is responsible for payment of the full registration amount and all applicable fees.

Refunds

Anyone who registers for an event online but chooses not to play may get a refund at the WSOP registration cage on-site in the Rio Convention Center up to the start time for the event. Participants, who don't end up travelling out to an event they online registered for, should email Tyler Pipal at tpipal@caesars.com to request the necessary paperwork to receive a refund. This request must be done in advance of the event's start. Refunds will be issued for the buy-in amount only.
