Wynn Millions $10,000 buy-in event to run June 25-July 2

The live poker boom of 2021 rolls on, with one of the biggest guaranteed prize pool tournaments in Las Vegas history set for this summer at Wynn Las Vegas.

After teasing the poker public for a few days, Wynn Las Vegas announced a $10 million guaranteed, $10,000 buy-in tournament, set for June 25 through July 2. The Wynn Millions will run as the centerpiece of the Wynn Summer Classic, and the $10 million prize pool stands as the largest ever offered at the Wynn.

The booming live poker attendance trend we’ve seen so far this year stands a great chance of continuing at Wynn’s most ambitious event in history. The week-long tournament will feature three Day 1 flights, one per day June 25-27.

From there, survivors from that trio of opening-day flights will return as a combined field on Monday, June 28, and embark on a five-day journey to a seven-figure championship payday.

The Wynn Millions will crown a champion Friday, July 2.

Wynn Summer Classic goes big with $16 million in guarantees

Wynn Las Vegas introduced the entire schedule for its Summer Classic series, and live tournament players can look forward to a massive seven-week schedule at one of the Strip’s most prominent live poker venues.

The Wynn Summer Classic runs May 27-July 13, with more than $16 million guaranteed across the series. Five different tournaments on the Summer Classic schedule feature seven-figure prize pools, as Wynn Las Vegas projects as the epicenter of live poker in the western U.S this summer.

Here’s a look at some of the biggest tournaments on the Wynn Summer Classic schedule:

Wynn Summer Classic notable events

May 28-30$1,100 No-Limit Hold’em$1,000,000
June 17-19$1,600 No-Limit Hold’em$1,000,000

July 2-5$1,600 Mystery Bounty$1,500,000
July 7-8$3,500 No-Limit Hold’em$1,000,000

The rest of 2021 appears poised as one of the biggest in the history of live tournament poker in Las Vegas. The return of the live 2021 World Series of Poker should draw tens of thousands of players from around the world to the Rio Las Vegas for the fall series.

The Wynn Summer Classic adds another major festival to an already robust 2021 live tournament schedule in Las Vegas.
