Popular $10,000 High Roller tournaments were slated to return to ARIA Resort & Casino in early December, but after tournaments were suspended at the venue (the $10K High Rollers will be rescheduled in 2021), a competing room opted to step up and fill the void.
To cater to players who had traveled to Las Vegas, Wynn quickly put together what was originally a three-event $10K High Roller series, but an added tournament on Sunday made it four events. The series wound up catering to 196 combined entrants and awarded $1.96 million in prize money.
The series proved so successful that Wynn is going to add daily $10Ks Dec. 10-12 and 17-19 (Thursday, Friday & Saturday each week).
