We have teamed up with PointsBet to offer our readers up to $1000 in risk free bets to celebrate the start of the WSOP!
The World Series of Poker is the most prestigious poker event in the world. It's a series of poker tournaments which has been held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada since 1970.
Its origins lay in gambling icon Benny Binion inviting seven of the world's best-known poker players to the Horseshoe Casino in order to decide the best player. Now it's a huge event sponsored by Caesars, consisting of 74 events and lasting from the end of May until July.
Phil Hellmuth is the Tom Brady of the tables with 15 WSOP bracelets including one main event win. When Hellmuth won his title in 1989 he scooped a $755,000 jackpot but that prize has increased hugely with this year's winner likely to scoop over $8 million.
We're so excited by this year's competition and so are PointsBet who are offering every Oddschecker user the chance to get $1000 in free bets!
