WSOP Europe and American Dress Codes

Harrahs is launching WSOP Europe. The festivities are expected to play out from Sept 6-16 and shall take place at three casinos operated by London Clubs International – Fifty, Leicester Square and the Sportsman.

Additionally, Harrahs has relaxed their dress code in the US for the WSOP. They now are allowing multiple logos, not to exceed 12 square-inches.

I strongly suspect the WSOP Europe event surely signals a willingness of Harrahs to diversify their WSOP business outside of the USA.

Back to the logo-ware, this move is apparantly being done to better afford players the opportunity to maixmize their sponsorships.

While multiple logos are allowed, they must fall under the following guidelines (Logos may not):

(a) Contain any false, unsubstantiated, or unwarranted claims for any product or
service, or make any testimonials that Harrah’s, in its sole and absolute discretion,
considers unethical;

(b) Advertise any habit-forming drug, tobacco product, handgun or handgun

(c) Advertise any malt beverage or any distilled liquor or any non-alcoholic product
containing the name of a liquor product other than Milwaukee’s Best Light or
another product of the Miller Brewing Company.

(d) Contain any material constituting or relating to a lottery, a contest of any kind in
which the public is unfairly treated or any enterprise, service or product that
abets, assists or promotes illegal gambling

(e) Contain any material that is defamatory, obscene, profane, vulgar, repulsive or
offensive, either in theme or in treatment or that describes or depicts repellently
any internal bodily functions or symptomatic results of internal conditions, or
refers to matters that are not considered socially acceptable topics;

(f) Advertise pornographic products of any kind;

(g) Include any element of intellectual property without the owner's consent to such
use or gives rise to any claim of infringement, misappropriation or other form of
unfair competition;

(h) Disparage or libel any person or product.

(j) Are or might be injurious or prejudicial to the interests of the World Series of
Poker, the Rio, Harrah's or its affiliated companies or are otherwise contrary to
honest advertising and reputable business in general. This includes but is not
limited to the name or logo of any person or entity that uses or has used the
trademarks, trade names or logos of Harrah's or its affiliated companies without
written authorization from an authorized officer of Harrah's.

(k) In addition, all logos, patches, and promotional language for any dot.net website
must contain a clear and visible "dot.net" suffix at least the same size as the site
