GGPoker.com, the World’s Biggest Poker Room, and Great Canadian Entertainment, Canada’s leader in gaming and hospitality, has announced that the World Series of Poker (WSOP) is heading to Toronto for the first time, with a WSOP Circuit event.

The  World Series of Poker is the richest, most prestigious and longest-running poker series in the world, and Toronto will host its first-ever WSOP Circuit event at Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto from March 22 to April 1, 2024.

Featuring eight Circuit Gold Ring events in total, the Toronto edition of WSOP boasts a total of $3.9 million in estimated prize pools, including a $2,000 Main Event with a $2.1m estimated prize pool and $3,500 High Roller event with over $850,000 in estimated prizes. 

Robert Katsavelos, General Manager of Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto said: "We are thrilled to partner with GGPoker to bring the World Series of Poker to the City of Toronto for the very first time.

"This is a fitting milestone that will create further momentum for our 30-table poker room that recently opened at Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto, Canada’s newest and largest casino resort."

He added: "We are excited to welcome tournament participants from across the North American poker community and from right here in the City of Toronto."

GGPoker, which sent 774 players to the Main Event at last summer’s WSOP and 1,000 players to WSOP Paradise, is launching satellites today across Ontario and Canada with buy-ins starting at only $1. 

All registered players can enter online qualifiers via their GGPoker account. New players can register with the bonus code for GGPoker, wired, to start with $600 in bonus money.

As well as online qualifiers, GGPoker will be represented at Toronto’s first-ever WSOP Circuit event by some of their Brand Ambassadors, including local poker hero Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker's Global Ambassador.

"I have been playing WSOP events around the world for over 25 years,” said Negreanu.

"There is something quite special about being able to finally compete in one in my hometown."

The full schedule of events will be announced soon.
