2024 NAPT Las Vegas

The wait is over. Several months after the successful return of the North American Poker Tour (NAPT) in Las Vegas, PokerStars announced that the NAPT will be back at Resorts World Las Vegas this year for ten days of tournament poker action.

The 2024 NAPT Las Vegas festival will take place Nov. 1-10, culminating with a $5,300 buy-in NAPT Main Event — an increase from last year’s $1,650 price tag — after a successful event with a strong turnout in 2023.

“Last year, the NAPT smashed all expectations, so this year, we’re going even bigger,” PokerStars North America Vice President Steve Preiss said in a press release. “With a premier partner like Resorts World Las Vegas, we’re stepping up our game: bigger tournaments, buy-ins, and player-focused events.”

While the full series schedule and prize pool guarantees have yet to be announced, the festival will feature other highlights including a $10,300 NAPT Super High Roller and a $550 NAPT NLH Cup.

The NAPT news comes on the heels of PokerStars’ announcement that The Big Game, which was filmed at last year’s NAPT, would be premiering on FS1 on May 10 and on the PokerStars YouTube channel on May 11.

Once again, players at the NAPT will have the opportunity to explore the luxurious Resorts World and take advantage of its various amenities.
