Nevada is home to the World Series of Poker, the world’s most decadent live poker tournament series, where thousands descend to Las Vegas to play.
The series has run every year since 1970, except in 2020, which was canceled due to the outbreak of COVID-19. In its 53 years, the series has attracted 1.7 million entrants and amassed over $3.8 billion in prize money across nearly 1700 bracelet events.
The online component of the series has also proven to be extremely popular among players, having run alongside the live series since 2015. WSOP 2023 will be the eighth consecutive year the online bracelet series will run.
For WSOP NV players, the live series is a welcome and exciting change as a massive influx of players come from all over the world to participate.
State regulations allow anyone to play on regulated sites as long as they are within the state’s borders — meaning, as the only operator in town, WSOP’s online traffic gets a massive boost.
This year will be no different. Especially with 20 online bracelets scheduled — the most in any year — there will be more reasons for players to switch to the online platform and try to win a coveted WSOP gold bracelet virtually.
Key Dates for WSOP NV Players
The 2023 WSOP online bracelet series on WSOP NV runs from June 1 to July 16. The online bracelet events will run every Sunday, with a few bracelets also scheduled to run on weekdays and Saturdays. A couple of Sundays are double bracelet days, meaning two lucky players will take home a piece of coveted WSOP bling.
These events usually run at either 3:30 PM PST or 4:30 PM PST.
Details of the WSOP NV 2023 Online Bracelet Series
The WSOP 2023 Nevada online bracelet schedule comprises 20 events. Buy-ins range from $333 to $5300, averaging $1285 per event across the series.
The old-time favorite $1000 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Championship will return with a PLO 6-max event, Summer Saver, and a couple of $5k buy-in High Roller events.
The schedule also sees new events such as the $1000-priced PLO Championship and 6-max Championship, along with a couple of Turbo events priced at around $400 to $500 and a $2000 buy-in Freezeout event.
The series also sees the return of the hybrid online-live event where the entire final table is played in a live casino as part of the WSOP series. This format was last run in 2016, after which the online bracelets became online-only. The Crazy 888’s is another event returning after a gap of two years.
However, not all events from last year’s schedule have been included this year. The $7777 buy-in Lucky 7’s has been omitted, as well as the popular BIG 500.

Qualifiers for the Online Bracelets
As every year, the organizers will be running qualifiers and satellites ahead of the start of the series. Qualifiers are anticipated to run with buy-ins starting at $10 and direct satellites for $30 and above. WSOP will also run some freerolls, giving away online bracelets alongside the online satellites.
Qualifiers for the WSOP 2023 Main Event
There will also be online qualifiers for the most prestigious poker event in the calendar year. Last year, WSOP ran direct satellites to the $10,000 Main Event for a $215 buy-in. Each of these direct satellites guaranteed one seat to the $10k buy-in Main Event. Sub-satellites were also available from buy-ins starting at $10. Expect these satellites to return at the same price point.
Furthermore, as part of the operator’s online satellite campaign Seat Sprint, 112 seats will be given away from June 25 to July 8, with 10 seats guaranteed daily in satellites
The operator also runs a Freeroll at the end of every month, giving away one seat for free. Expect these freerolls to continue to the $10,000 buy-in Main Event.
- This is the broadest schedule since WSOP began offering online bracelets in 2015.
- Next year’s online bracelet series could have even more online bracelets if Michigan becomes part of the existing player pool.
- It could also be the last series played on 888poker’s decade-old long software, as WSOP will likely have upgraded the software to 888’s next-generation app by 2024.
- There could be increased competition by the time the summer series kicks off as BetMGM is eyeing an online poker launch in the Silver State.
