Atlantic City, being one of the largest Casino and Resort areas in the nation, will be hosting The World Poker Tour. Buy in for the event is 3,500 and there is a guaranteed prize of two million dollars. If that seems like a bit too much, there will also be other events which only require a $200 buy in.

The World Poker Tour returns to Atlantic City starting Sunday with the Winter Poker Open at Borgata.

Buy-in for the event is $3,500 and there's a guaranteed prize pool of $2 million. The Winter Poker Open is the centerpiece of Borgata's Winter Poker Open Festival, which includes 56 events for players of all levels. Buy-ins during the festival are as low as $200.

“Over the past 10 seasons, Borgata has consistently proven itself to be an amazing partner and a favorite destination for many players on tour,” said WPT President Adam Pliska said in a press release.
