After a number of false starts, the WSOP.com online poker domain will begin offering real-money games to players located in Nevada later this week.
On Thursday WSOP.com will beceome the second real-money online poker site to go live for players in the western state following the launch of Ultimate Poker in May. WSOP.com will be celebrating its arrival with a special $100,000 freeroll open to anyone in Nevada who registers before the end of the month and makes a first deposit by October 15. The real money site was due to open its online doors during this summer’s World Series of Poker (WSOP) but delays saw the launch postponed by over two months. “This is really the beginning of a domino effect,” said Mitch Garber, Chief Executive Officer for operator Caesars Interactive Entertainment. “The same way that the state of Nevada started land-based casino gaming and you’ve seen the proliferation of casino gaming across the United States. We believe that the digital age will repeat that very same pattern. Nevada will have a very healthy business on its own.”
