    World Series of Poker representatives have pointed out two major changes to credit card buy-in options with players’ convenience in mind.

    1. Credit cards will now be accepted at the cage along with cash and chips to buy-in to official WSOP tournaments. This is a change from 2016, when credit card purchases were restricted to online registration.

    2. Credit card purchase limits for WSOP events have been raised from $1,500 to $10,000. This means that a player can buy-in to the 2017 WSOP Main Event with a credit card while on-site at the Rio.
