HERZLIYA, Israel, April 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — World Series of Poker®1 (WSOP®), a Playtika® studio and the world’s no. 1 play-for-fun poker game2, is launching a pioneering new initiative that will see 14 social media influencers compete to be crowned WSOP® legend.
This brand-new campaign will launch the first of its many phases across the US this week, in which the influencers, split into five teams, will be paired with real life WSOP® mentors to master the game and become poker legends!
The path to becoming a WSOP® legend
In a special one-off event, WSOP® will unveil the identities of the mystery influencers live on Instagram from this week. Viewers will have the unique opportunity to watch as the invited influencers open their secret WSOP® boxes to reveal their competitors, react live to their competition and rate their own poker skills.
The influencers – from a range of content realms including automotives, comedy, gaming, filmmaking, sports and fitness – will be coached by some of the best WSOP® players in the world and strive to learn all the tricks and techniques behind the game. In December, the influencer teams will compete against each other face-to-face at an undisclosed location in the US.
WSOP® will also take poker fans on an amazing #RoadToTheTable with live videos and exciting opportunities to interact with their favourite WSOP® legends and influencers alike. The free-to-play poker game is already loved by millions of players around the world, featuring countless exciting game modes, tournaments and special events.

We really want to bring the love for poker and WSOP® to a wider audience and show people just how much fun playing poker can be.
