Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort Hosting World Series of Poker Circuit Event

Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort Hosting World Series of Poker Circuit Event

The World Series of Poker Circuit roadshow is making its third stop at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in North Carolina for the 2021-22 season from April 7 through April 18.

The WSOP Circuit (WSOP-C) is an ongoing series of events held in a variety of U.S. and international locations that allows local players and traveling grinders to experience the thrill of WSOP-type action at buy-ins that are far more modest than at the annual WSOP.

This year’s WSOP will be held in Las Vegas at the connected Bally’s and Paris casinos from late May through mid-July.

Retail North Carolina sports betting also is legal at the Caesars sportsbook in the casino holding the WSOP-C event.

The upcoming WSOP-C at Harrah’s Cherokee in Cherokee, North Carolina, will be held over 12 days with 16 “Ring” Events with more than $2.5 million in guaranteed prize money. Winners of Circuit tournaments earn championships rings while winners at the WSOP in Las Vegas win bracelets.
