Get ready for an action-packed, and possibly profitable, summer playing poker at WSOP.com. The Caesars Entertainment-owned poker site has announced it will offer a whopping $15 million in guarantees from May 1 through September.
If you live in or visit New Jersey, Delaware, or Nevada, you’ll notice a major difference between the current WSOP.com and what the poker site will become after May 1. The three states agreed to a shared liquidity agreement, allowing WSOP.com to merge player pools onto one site between the three states.
The recent pact will create a bigger and better poker site for players in those states as there will be more players, games, and larger guaranteed prize pools.
The site could get even better if Pennsylvania, once it licenses poker site operators, joins the pact. Lawmakers from the Keystone State haven’t announced an interest in joining a multi-state shared liquidity agreement, however.
Big Bucks Up for Grabs
This summer’s action on WSOP.com will be intense. The legal poker site is guaranteeing at least $15 million in prize pool money over hundreds of tournaments beginning May 1 and running through September.
That includes four WSOP events that award a gold bracelet to the winner. Satellites into live and online WSOP events will also be offered. These tournaments are only available to Nevada residents, the state that hosts the World Series of Poker.
But that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of opportunities for New Jersey and Delaware residents to get in on the action. Non-WSOP events and satellites will be open to players from all three states, including a weekly $320 buy-in tournament each Sunday with a $100,000 guarantee.
Run it Up This Summer
WSOP.com is offering far more than just the online bracelet and $100,000 Sunday tournaments this summer.
Sundays will be your best chance to strike it rich with $250,000 guaranteed in various tournaments. Each other day of the week, at least $10,000 in prize pool money will be awarded.
“We can’t wait for our existing players and hopefully a host of first-time players to experience the new WSOP.com,” said WSOP.com’s Head of Online Poker Bill Rini. “With the advent of tri-state shared liquidity, we have completely revamped our tournament schedules, our cash games offerings, our loyalty program and our promotional calendar to deliver the best online poker experience in this new world order.”
If you are a current player on WSOP.com in any of the three aforementioned states, you must sign-up for a new account, which means you can change your screen name. Your previous account will switch over on May 1 when WSOP.com merges player pools between the three states.
