Top Players at Turning Stone Win Record $6.2 Million in World Series of Poker Payouts

In 2024, the Turning Stone event in Verona, New York, broke records once again with its impressive numbers of entries, money won, and visitors attracted to the region. The 12-day tournament at Turning Stone Resort Casino awarded a staggering $6.2 million in total winnings, double the minimum guarantee. This amount surpassed the $5.4 million awarded last year, making it an even more successful event for the Oneida Indian Nation, which operates the casino.

The tournament sent 18 “Gold Ring” winning players to the World Series of Poker Tournament of Champions main event in Las Vegas, another record for the Turning Stone event. Over 16,000 entries from players representing 38 states and four Canadian provinces came to compete in this prestigious gaming tournament. Ethan Bennett from Brooklyn was crowned WSOP Main Event Champion and won a first-ever Gold Ring along with $298,546 in prize money.

Central and Western New York players also won money and Gold Ring tickets to the Vegas tournament during this exciting event at Turning Stone’s Events Center. Running from March 14th to March 25th, this marked the third year that Turning Stone has hosted World Series of Poker events. As one of only two casinos in the Northeast hosting a WSOP circuit event, Turning Stone is proud to be part of a select group of fewer than 20 casinos across the country offering this esteemed gaming experience.
