World Series of Poker Paradise Main Event is underway

9 December 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The first WSOP Paradise No-Limit Hold'em World Championship in paradise, better known as the “Main Event,” is officially underway at Atlantis at Paradise Island Resort and Casino in the Bahamas. Featuring a massive $15 million guarantee, the event is headlined by the highly-coveted WSOP Paradise Main Event gold bracelet that now takes center stage, waiting for a champion to take it home.

The new WSOP Paradise Main Event bracelet is hand-crafted by Jostens and features an island spin on the classic WSOP Main Event bracelet. Custom made from 10-karat yellow gold, just like the summer’s trophy, the WSOP Paradise Main Event bracelet weighs nearly 95 grams and is hand-set with 494 genuine blue topaz round stones.

“The WSOP Main Event bracelet is considered the richest trophy in sports, and our first Main Event bracelet for WSOP Paradise puts a fun spin on the trophy’s legacy,” said World Series of Poker Vice President Gregory Chochon. “This is the World Series of Poker, we’re global and need a proper World Championship trophy to represent the newest home we’ve added to the series. Jostens delivered on that vision once again, and we can’t wait to see who takes home the first-ever WSOP Paradise Main Event bracelet.”

In the summer of 2023, the WSOP shattered the all-time attendance record for its Main Event, 17 years after Jamie Gold defeated a crowd of 8,773 entrants in 2006 to take home the prestigious WSOP Main Event Bracelet. That feat set the record for the largest and richest tournament in live poker history, something WSOP Paradise has built on with Event #1 Mystery Millions breaking the record for the largest poker event ever hosted in the Bahamas.
