WSOP Europe moves to King's Casino Rozvadov

25 October 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The World Series of Poker Europe has found a new home for 2017 and the foreseeable future, signing a multi-year deal with King's Casino Rozvadov to host numerous WSOP-branded events over the next several years.

After offering a Circuit event at King's Casino Rozvadov in the Czech Republic in 2015, with another Circuit stop beginning this week, the World Series of Poker is determined to plant a flag in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, to help King's expedite their mission to become the most renowned tournament poker room in Europe.

Poker players are flocking to King's from all over Europe for good reason. Still growing, it has become the largest poker room in Europe, and it is committed to a first class poker and player experience including a complimentary buffet. Currently boasting more than 150 poker tables, with cash games and tournaments running 24/7, the property is also in the midst of huge expansion, which will add a new hotel tower and more poker tables, all expected to be completed prior to the start of WSOP Europe in the Fall of 2017.

"I have really bought into Leon's vision for creating a poker-first destination in Central Europe," said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. "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."

This broad agreement is much more than WSOP Europe in 2017. WSOP and King's have agreed to the following:
  • WSOP Europe in the Fall in Rozvadov in 2017 and 2019 (with a minimum 10 WSOP gold bracelet events and €5,000,000 in prize pool guarantees).
  • Two WSOP Circuit Events a year in Rozvadov in 2018 and 2020 (one in the Fall, one in the Spring).
  • One WSOP Circuit event a year in the Spring in 2017, 2019 & 2021.
King's Casino's Leon Tsoukernik said: "We are honored to be holding such prestigious WSOP bracelet events. By the time of the WSOPE next year people will discover an all-new version of the King's Casino. 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.

"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," he added.

Included in WSOP Europe events will be broad content distribution of the official gold bracelet events in 2017 and 2019. Each WSOP Europe Main Event will be filmed for television, with all other events receiving robust live reporting and live stream coverage.

King's Casino Rozvadov is located in the Czech Republic, right near the German border, between Prague and Munich. In fact, the location is right in Central Europe, giving all Europeans an easy travel destination to play poker.

Many of poker's brightest young stars have made King's their home in recent years, including the German phenom Fedor Holz and 2016 November Niner Vojtech Ruzicka, who will be sporting a King's Rozvadov patch at the WSOP Main Event final table in Las Vegas later this week.

Both King's and the WSOP are hard at work planning the precise dates and event schedule for the 2017 WSOP Europe, and will announce details when they have been finalized.
