This week the World Series of Poker went live in Pennsylvania, and we’ll walk you through all the exciting details our PA players need to know.
Previously, WSOP was only available in Nevada, Delaware, and New Jersey. So this makes Pennsylvania the fourth state for players to participate in their exciting online poker tournaments.
What is WSOP?
World Series of Poker is the largest online poker platform in the US. They host regular tournaments daily, weekly, and monthly.
PA players will be able to find all of the following at WSOP:
- Blast Poker – play for up to 10,000x the original buy-in!
- Massive selection of Omaha, No-Limit Hold’Em, and Stud cash games
- Live WSOP events
The platform is powered by 888 and is partnered with Harrah’s Philadelphia land-based casino.
Ty Stewart, senior vice-president of the World Series of Poker at Caesars Entertainment, released a joint statement with 888 saying, “We are thrilled to be opening up WSOP.com to the state of Pennsylvania. The real winners in this expansion are the players who join us at WSOP.com. Our team is laser-focused on providing the most value to poker players in the state and are confident in the potential of our online poker product.”
Yaniv Sherman, 888’s senior vice-president and head of US, added, “I am delighted that, in partnership with our long-term, strategic partner Caesars, we have launched the market-leading WSOP brand into Pennsylvania, which represents 888’s fourth state in the US market. The success of this long-term partnership is a strong endorsement of our proprietary technology and our US development strategy through both B2C and B2B channels. New states coming online represent an opportunity to our unique interstate poker network, which helps to significantly increase liquidity of poker players across our award-winning poker platform. This enhances the overall user experience and also helps us to continually refine our offer to provide an engaging and hyper-relevant product.”
