WSOP Paradise Main Event Winner to Take Home One-of-a-Kind Bracelet

Poker News

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) Paradise $5,300 Main Event kicked off on Saturday at Atlantis Paradise Island in the Bahamas, and officials took the opportunity to reveal to players what they’ll receive it they’re fortunate enough to finish as the last player standing.

In addition to a seven-figure payday, the winner will receive a new WSOP Paradise Main Event bracelet that is hand-crafted by Jostens and features an island spin on the classic WSOP Main Event bracelet. Custom made from 10-karat yellow gold, just like the summer’s trophy, the WSOP Paradise Main Event bracelet weighs nearly 95 grams and is hand-set with 494 genuine blue topaz round stones.

“The WSOP Main Event bracelet is considered the richest trophy in sports, and our first Main Event bracelet for WSOP Paradise puts a fun spin on the trophy’s legacy,” said WSOP Vice President Gregory Chochon. “This is the World Series of Poker, we’re global and need a proper World Championship trophy to represent the newest home we’ve added to the series. Jostens delivered on that vision once again, and we can’t wait to see who takes home the first-ever WSOP Paradise Main Event bracelet.”

In the summer of 2023, the WSOP shattered the all-time attendance record for its Main Event, 17 years after Jamie Gold, who fired Day 1a of WSOP Paradise, defeated a crowd of 8,773 entrants in 2006 to take home the prestigious WSOP Main Event Bracelet. That feat set the record for the largest and richest tournament in live poker history, something WSOP Paradise has built on with Event #1 Mystery Millions breaking the record for the largest poker event ever hosted in the Bahamas.

Livestreamed coverage for marquee events and the Main Event will be featured on GGPoker’s YouTube channel, and three post-produced TV episodes will air on CBS Sports Network with commentary from legendary poker analysts Lon McEachern and Norman Chad.
