The World Poker Tour (WPT) will take place in Macau in June, a first in its 22-year-old history. Macau has long been a gambling and poker hub, having hosted some of the world's largest cash games for years. Legendary pros like WPT ambassador Phil Ivey have called Macau home over the years.

Macau has long been a sought-after destination for us, wanting to deliver the WPT experience to the region,” said Adam Pliska, WPT CEO. “Thank you to AGAE and Wynn Macau for helping us expand our global footprint. We look forward to an incredible event.”

The WPT Macau Festival will take place from June 18th to 24th, with the Main Tour championship event, a HK$40,000 buy-in ($5,100), running from June 20th until 24th.

The events will be held at the Wynn Macau casino, which has one of the biggest poker rooms in the poker-heavy Asian region, similar to its sister property, Wynn Las Vegas in the United States.

Apart from the Main Tour event, the WPT will host a HK$200,000 ($25,577) high roller June 19th-20th at Wynn.

The World Poker Tour's 2024 Main Tour season is currently underway with March 23rd scheduled for the $3,500 buy-in WPT Rolling Thunder Championship at Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Northern California. It will conclude five days before the WPT Voyage (March 31-April 6), a poker cruise to the Bahamas.

The Main Tour will also make two additional stops before the WPT heads to Macau, which will include the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship (April 19th) and the WPT Choctaw Championship (May 3rd).

We are thrilled to partner with World Poker Tour to host one of the most prestigious global poker competitions in Macau, marking its debut in this vibrant city. The World Poker Tour invites legendary poker players from across the world which will enhance Macau’s global allure and reinforce its status as a World Centre of Tourism and Leisure," said Linda Chen, President, Vice Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of Wynn Macau. 

"This exciting mega-event further demonstrates our commitment to deliver top-tier international entertainment events to Macau and is set to captivate a new wave of global visitors eager to experience the dynamism of our city."

Earlier in January, WPT completed the first-ever Main Tour stop in Southeast Asia with WPT Cambodia.
