The Hilton Casino takes great pleasure in announcing TAPS 2021, The Aruba Poker Series, heralding the return of the beloved tournament, in the ‘new normal,’ as we learn to live with the pandemic, taking all necessary precautions.

In 2019, the Hilton casino successfully hosted the World Series of Poker, as part of the World Series of Poker Circuit, a prestigious international poker tour famous world over, which stopped by the Casino at the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort from November 14th to November 24th, 2019.

The 2019 event attracted over 275 poker players from around the globe, who competed for substantial cash prizes – the guaranteed amount of $250,000 was surpassed due to popularity and became a total prize pool of $407, 535.-

Players congregated at the resort and enjoyed sun, sea and limitless poker, they came here with family members and friends and experienced a fun filled vacation, spiced up with casino action.

The Hilton Casino was naturally going to repeat the event in 2020.

Plans were made and reservations started coming in when Covid19 interfered and sent many countries into temporary lock down, followed by restrictions on gaming and other social activities.
