World Series of Poker Lands on WAX
Ultra-Rare 1-of-1 NFTs Up for Grabs Via WAX Digital Auctions
The idea of inspiring the public to watch broadcasts of card games may have seemed far-fetched at the turn of the millennium, but when the world’s best poker-faced geniuses began battling for millions of dollars, it suddenly became must-see TV.
The World Series of Poker® (WSOP) is now the largest, richest and most prestigious gaming event in the world, having awarded more than $3.29 billion in prize money since the tournament’s inception in 1970. The tournament has become so popular that in 2019 alone, the event attracted 187,298 entrants from 118 different countries and awarded more than $293 million in prize money.
