WSOP Becomes First Poker App With Three-State Pool

Must read

The World Series of Poker launched its new online poker platform, WSOP Online, over the weekend, a move that also saw the Caesars-owned operator become the first to pool liquidity across three U.S. jurisdictions.

Poker players in Michigan can now vie for shared pots with competitors in Nevada and New Jersey as the WSOP’s online bracelet contests get set to kick off on June 1. 

“This platform upgrade is long overdue and is a big win for our players,” Danielle Barille, vice president of online poker at Caesars Digital, said in a press release. “The best is yet to come for WSOP Online tournaments, and we’re thrilled to bring Michigan players into the fold with Nevada and New Jersey, resulting in a better experience, more value, and the biggest prize pools of the year.”

While players in these states can utilize the old platform until May 27, they will be prompted to install the new app on that date. Once players create a new username, any existing balances, tournament tickets, and rewards points will be transferred into their accounts within 72 hours of the new platform’s launch.

To celebrate the arrival of the new platform, any WSOP Online player making a deposit from launch on May 28 to June 29 will receive a complimentary entry into a $100,000 free roll No Limit Hold’em event.
