After 17 years at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, Caesars Entertainment's World Series of Poker will move to Bally's and the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino next year.

The 53rd annual World Series of Poker will be played May 31 to July 19. Actor, comedian and card player Vince Vaughn will be the celebrity master of ceremonies.

In 2019, Caesars Entertainment sold the Rio to a principal of real estate firm Imperial Cos. for $512.3 million but agreed to continue to operate the resort for at least two years and retain hosting rights for the World Series of Poker. Earlier this year, Hyatt announced it would renovate the 2,510-key property as part of its portfolio.

Caesars owns both Bally's and Paris, which are connected by a hallway. The resorts have meetings rooms with a combined space similar in size to the meetings rooms at the Rio. It will be the first time the event will be on the Strip. Before moving to the Rio, the event was held at Binion's Horseshoe downtown.

The full 2022 schedule, including a booking link for discounted participant hotel rates, is expected to be posted at wsop.com in January.
