Today, Thursday, Sept. 19 is set to be a milestone day for online poker, when casino operator Caesars Interactive Entertainment launches World Series of Poker’s web platform, WSOP.com at 9:19 a.m. As only the second, fully-licensed entry in the state’s real money wagering for online poker, players located in Nevada can begin placing bets as soon as the site goes live.
With its eye on the prize, the site’s launch correlates with WSOP’s final table championships including the November Nine on Nov. 4-5 at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, and the new online gaming component will simultaneously run its own championship with nine tournaments.
The WSOP brand combines with the Caesars Entertainment portfolio’s unbeatable offerings. Total Rewards program members will be treated to associated perks, as will WSOP.com’s dedicated Action Club loyalty incentive.
With software by partner 888 Holdings, WSOP.com represents a state-of-the-art poker site based in the world’s gaming capital. Nevada is one of only three states that legalized online gambling. WSOP.com players must have their age verified to comply with regulation. With availability ranging from cash games to multi-table tournaments, players can take a gamble on various favorites including No-Limit Hold ‘Ems.
