LAS VEGAS (AP) — The World Series of Poker will give wheelers, dealers, poker pros and amateurs a record 62 chances to win gold bracelets at its Las Vegas bonanza this summer.

The organization announced Thursday that it will hold the contest at the Rio Hotel & Casino from May 29 through July 15. The World Series' main event— a $10,000 buy-in, no-limit Texas Hold 'em tournament — will run from July 6 to July 15, and then resume again in November.

Wanna-be poker legends must be at least 21 years old to play.

Organizers said a record $222 million in prize money was awarded during last year's contest, where 61 bracelets were up for grabs.
