Enhancements are coming to the 2020 WSOP

The 2020 World Series of Poker is just three months away, and while the event schedule is now finalized, several notable enhancements are coming to the 2020 WSOP which will be detailed in the coming months. The first area of improvement involves the registration process. The 51st Annual WSOP is set to run from 26 May to 15 July 2020 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. For the first time at the WSOP, in-person registration and payouts for events will be separated into different rooms, allowing for more stations to be added to both areas. This is designed to ease congestion and speed up wait times. Loyalty Card: All players are required to have a Caesars Rewards loyalty card to enter WSOP events. To obtain a card for new players, or to request a reprint of your card if you have previously signed up for one, players will visit the Rotunda area in the Rio Convention Center, the same location as it has been previously. A valid picture identification such as a state-issued driver license or a country-issued passport is required for a Caesars Rewards card. It is important to note, players who lost/forgot to bring their physical Caesars Rewards card with them to the Rio, should request a re-print of their card and NOT obtain a new card. Caesars Rewards re-print kiosks will also be available in the Rotunda area, allowing those a quick way to get a physical card when that’s the only need they have. This should allow for a smoother process to get a Caesars Rewards card, register for an event and cash out for any events when a payout was earned. Registration: The main registration area remains in the Tropical Ballroom, near the back end of the Rio Convention Center, with more stations added to both the main registration cage and the VIP cage. This office opens on Tuesday, 26 May at 9:00 a.m., and will remain open 24 hours a day, non-stop through 14 July. Guests are required to present valid picture identification, along with their Caesars Rewards card and payment to enter events. Methods of payment for the required buy-in(s) for WSOP events are as follows: (1) cash, (2) credit/debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express), (3) wire transfers or cashier’s checks drawn from the registrant’s accredited bank account and made out to Participant or Rio, (4) Rio gaming chips, (5) Rio Tournament Buy-In Chips, or Tournament Buy-In Credit. Additional fees will be incurred on all credit/debit card transactions. Participants using credit/debit cards must have a valid ID that matches the cardholder name present on the credit card used for the transaction. “There is no doubt we need to do a better job of getting people in their seats and playing poker faster,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “We’ve looked closely at several areas in the off-season and are dedicating new resources – technology, equipment and people – to aid in these efforts in 2020. These changes, in conjunction with better informing guests of the required documents needed to register, make us optimistic it can lead to noticeable improvement.” Payouts: Next door to registration in the Palma Ballroom (previously the Media Center) will be the Payout Office. Anyone who has funds to collect will head to the Palma Ballroom (directly across from the Amazon Ballroom player entrance) to be processed. A reminder for players to bring their valid ID, their Caesars Rewards card and any pertinent banking/wiring information if necessary, to the ballroom in order to expedite the transaction times. (International players (applying for an ITIN) are required to bring an additional form of identification that shows residential address, such as a signed lease agreement, a utility bill or a mobile phone bill).
