The Wynn Las Vegas poker room will be running a juicy streak later this month with over a dozen events guaranteed at least $ 1 million. The buy-ins for tournaments range from $ 300 to $ 1,100, making the series enticing to players on multiple levels. Each tournament has a guaranteed prize pool of up to $ 400,000. Satellites are available for the largest events.
The Wynn Signature Series begins April 26th and runs through May 9th. The series begins on the 26th at 12:00 PM with a $ 400 buy-in no-limit Hold’em tournament. This event guarantees a prize pool of at least $ 100,000. Players can register for day 1a and day 1b (27th).
The Las Vegas poker scene is slowly returning to normal and is likely to get even closer on May 1st when Governor Steve Sisolak allows local governments to set future COVID-19 restrictions. Two Nevada counties – Washoe and Nye – have already announced that they will lift most of the restrictions on May 1st. Clark County, home of Las Vegas, has not made any publicly known decisions. However, many experts speculate that changes will also take place for the most populous county in the state.
Las Vegas poker industry is booming again
If you need more proof of the growing poker industry in Las Vegas, the upcoming Wynn Signature Series is the place for you. With at least $ 1 million to be won across 12 events, it is clear the Strip casino is confident they will grab the house.
The Wynn Poker room, usually located on the Encore Casino side of the resort, has been temporarily based on the Wynn side since the card room reopened. In time for the upcoming series, however, it will return to its permanent home at Encore.
The series features four tournaments with six-figure guaranteed prize pools, including the opening event mentioned above. At noon on the 29th, the mega-resort will host a guaranteed no-limit hold’em tournament valued at $ 250,000 for an entry fee of $ 600. And then on May 3rd, the $ 400 buy-in Hold’em event begins with a guaranteed prize pool of $ 100,000.
The largest event in the series, which costs $ 1,100 to attend, begins May 6 with the first of three take-off flights on day one. At least $ 400,000 will be shared among those who earn cash.
If you’re looking for a non-NLH tournament, the Wynn Spring Series has an Omaha 8 or better limit of $ 300 (April 29), an Omaha limit of $ 400 (April 30), and an Omaha $ 550 bounty (May 6) events.
