WSOP Europe Returns for 2017/19 at King’s Casino Rozvadov

The World Series of Poker Europe is back on the poker schedule - and it has a new, long-term home.

The WSOP announced today a multi-year deal with the King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic to host the WSOPE in 2017, 2019 and beyond.

Already the largest poker room in Europe with 150 tables and 24/7 cash games King's will also undergo a huge expansion prior to the start of WSOP Europe in the Fall of 2017.

Also agreed to in the deal were 2 WSOP Circuit Events per year in both 2018 and 2020 and 1 WSOP Circuit event per year in 2017, 2019 & 2021.

10 Gold Bracelets, €5m Guarantee

After a fairly modest turnout in Berlin in 2015, where the Main Event was won by American Kevin MacPhee, the WSOPE should make a bigger splash in Rozvadov next fall, even if it's just a town of 500.

Nitsche: Can't argue with those numbers.

Said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart:

“I have really bought into Leon’s vision for creating a poker-first destination in Central Europe.

"The existing set up already reminds me of the Amazon Room at the Rio and it’s only going to get bigger.

"When the new hotel and the renovations are complete, and considering the way Leon and staff cater to poker players, this is going to be a very comfortable environment for a large festival such as ours.

"With King’s backing large guarantees and media coverage, we believe we have found a long term home for WSOPE to replicate the scale we enjoy in Las Vegas."

Added King's owner Leon Tsoukernik:

"Last year alone we brought over 250,000 poker players to Rozvadov. Although this is already a great result for a town of 500, I believe we will be able to double that number as soon as our plans for expansion are completed and people will get the opportunity to come here for a proper poker holiday ...

"... Not only are we adding 1,800 square meters of Las Vegas-style casino space with 40 more poker tables, we are opening an amazing new hotel with 218 additional rooms.

"The first three floors of the new building will be a four-star hotel while the fourth floor will be a five-star one with 18 luxury suites to accommodate even the most demanding of guests. The last floor of the new complex will be home to a fully-equipped wellness center with Jacuzzis, saunas, massage rooms and a fitness center."

All bracelet events in 2017 and 2019 will have widespread content distribution and each WSOP Europe Main Event will be filmed for television. Other bracelet events will get both live reporting and live stream coverage.

Exact dates for the 2017 events will be released when finalized. Read more on the future plans for the WSOPE and the King's Casino here.
