The gamblers in the State of Pennsylvania will now be able to participate legally in the World Series of Poker (WSOP).
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has approved the WSOP.com for the first time and the WSOP has been launched in Pennsylvania. The successful launch will see WSOP offering special sign-up promotions, bracelet events and weekly tournaments to Pennsylvanian players.
Prior to approval, a field trial was done, which proved to be successful and with this launch, Pennsylvania has joined the ranks of Nevada and New Jersey where WSOP.com online poker is operational.
As per Gambling Insider, Ty Stewart, SVP of the World Series of Poker at Caesars Entertainment, said: “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. With our industry-best sign-up promotions and the special bracelet series catered specifically to players in Pennsylvania, we welcome all players, from the casuals to the professionals and everyone in between.”
WSOP 2020 Series generated $865,000 per tournament with prize pools worth over $26m across 31 bracelet events, making the Series record breaking in many aspects.
