Las Vegas, NV (November 2, 2022) The WPT® World Championship will encompass several prominent names, from poker pros and personalities to celebrities, but possibly none bigger than world-renowned DJ and World Poker Tour® Ambassador Steve Aoki.

“I can’t wait for the World Championship. I am looking forward to playing some cards with the WPT crew and fans alike,” said Aoki. “The Premier Meet-Up Game is going to be an absolute blast, but I can’t lie – I’m really looking forward to having a Sit & Go at my crib.”

On Dec. 1, Aoki joins fellow WPT personalities, such as Brad Owen, Andrew Neeme, Doyle Brunson, Lynn Gilmartin, and more, in The Premier Meet-Up Game: WPT Poker Icons Experience. The massive MUG, held in the Wynn Las Vegas Poker Room kicks off the WPT World Championship Festival.

“Steve’s presence at the WPT Poker Icons Experience is going to add a new level of excitement to an event already positioned to be one of the most fun community events of the year,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska. “Steve’s extensive involvement over the year has made our 20th anniversary truly transformational and player interaction with him has provided a great way to experience the new WPT.”

Aoki’s love for the game of poker led him to an ambassadorship with WPT in January of 2022. Since then, the two-time Grammy nominated musician and producer has collaborated with WPT to host special events, raise money for charity, expand the scope of poker via his audience, and this December he is continuing his active role in poker at the biggest WPT event of the year.
