Seminole Casino Coconut Creek to Host WSOP Circuit
13 Gold Rings, Two $10,000 Buy-Ins Among Prizes to be Awarded
COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (July 19, 2019) – The World Series of Poker (WSOP) returns to South Florida and Seminole Casino Coconut Creek for one of the first stops of the 2019-2020 WSOP Circuit U.S. tour beginning Thursday, September 19.
This marks the fourth time that the industry’s leading brand will make a home at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek. The 12-day series is again punctuated by a $1 million guaranteed Main Event.
Leading up to the Main Event, which runs September 27-30, a number of other events are scheduled, including a $300,000 guaranteed Re-Entry opener, a $100,000 guaranteed Monster Stack and a $50,000 guaranteed High Roller. In total, 13 primary tournaments will be decided with each awarding the WSOP Circuit’s token prize, a gold ring.
In addition to millions of dollars in prize money, players will compete for two entries in the WSOP Circuit season-ending Global Casino Championship. The first entry will be awarded to the Casino Champion, the player who earns the most points via in-the-money finishes during the series. The second entry will go to the Main Event champion. These seats are valued at $10,000 each and will ultimately see two Seminole Casino Coconut Creek players compete in a one-of-a-kind event with a prize pool in excess of $1 million.
Additional details on the Global Casino Championship will be released later in the WSOP Circuit season.
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek is offering players the opportunity to win their way into the series Main Event by giving away one $1,700 buy-in through their Win A Seat online contest, now through September 22.

About The WSOP Circuit
The World Series of Poker (WSOP) Circuit Events are a series of poker tournaments hosted throughout the United States and throughout the world beginning in early August each year, and culminating the following summer with a $1,000,000 Global Casino Championship where the victor earns a WSOP gold bracelet as well. WSOP U.S. Circuit Events are designed to give the recreational and amateur player an opportunity to participate in the WSOP experience at a more affordable price point and with less of a time commitment than the traditional WSOP in Las Vegas. Each stop typically features 12 official events in 12 days, including a $1,700 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Main Event. Official WSOP Circuit events range in buy-in from $250-$5,300 and award a prestigious WSOP gold ring to each victor. These poker tournaments are designed to reach a winner within two playing days, with some events even structured to complete in one day. In 2018-19, the WSOP Circuit domestic season consists of 28 stops all tied together by a cumulative points system that awards points based on finish in individual events. A season-ending WSOP Global Casino Championship is held each summer. The winner of each stop’s Main Event (the only four-day structured event) gains automatic entry into the season-ending WSOP Global Casino Championship, as does each stop’s Casino Champion – the person who accumulates the most points throughout the official ring events at a stop. Two players at each stop earn automatic entries into the season-ending championship, with the remaining players being made up of at large qualifiers whom have accumulated the most points throughout the Circuit season. Players who finish within the top ten percent of the field are typically awarded prize money on an escalating scale until there is one player who has captured all the chips. That victor wins the largest share of the prize pool, a WSOP Circuit gold ring and points toward the Global Casino Championship qualification. The WSOP Circuit Events are a regional and international offshoot of the longest-running, largest, richest and most prestigious gaming event in the world, dating back 48 years to 1970 – the famous World Series of Poker. This marks the fifteenth year the WSOP Circuit Events have been held. They were initially established by Caesars Entertainment (then Harrah’s Entertainment) after its purchase of the WSOP brand in 2004 as a way to bring the WSOP experience to Caesars-owned properties throughout the U.S. In the inaugural season (2004-05), the WSOP Circuit featured five stops – Atlantic City, Lake Tahoe, Las Vegas, San Diego and New Orleans. Now, with 28 stops domestically, the WSOP Circuit visits 13 U.S. states and cumulatively features more entrants than the Las Vegas version of the WSOP. Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Inc., (CIE) owns the WSOP and the WSOP Circuit Events. Visit us at http://www.wsop.com/2018/Circuit/ or www.twitter.com/wsop.
