WSOP is getting an online poker makeover as the in-person event is ready to shuffle up and deal in Las Vegas. Caesars (NASDAQ: CZR) is rebranding WSOP.com as WSOP Online.

In addition to a new name, WSOP Online has new software linking player pools in New Jersey, Nevada and Michigan.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) just approved Caesars’ WSOP Online for its multi-state online poker platform. WSOP is the only online poker room in the US linking these three jurisdictions.

If BetMGM opens a Nevada online poker room as it intends, another company could join WSOP next year. BetMGM is one of three online casino operators in Michigan.

The new WSOP Online software is integral to linking the three states and offers players new functionality and promotions.

In a Caesars Entertainment news release, Danielle Barille, vice president of online poker at Caesars Digital, said:

“This platform upgrade is long overdue and is a big win for our players. The best is yet to come for WSOP Online tournaments, and we’re thrilled to bring Michigan players into the fold with Nevada and New Jersey, resulting in a better experience, more value, and the biggest prize pools of the year.”

Key takeaways

  • WSOP.com is now officially WSOP Online.
  • Players must set up a new account to use the new WSOP Online software.
  • WSOP Online has greater liquidity with shared player pools from New Jersey, Nevada and Michigan.

All players must set up new WSOP Online accounts

All players must set up a new WSOP Online account to use the new software. Word of caution for longtime online poker players — WSOP does not guarantee players will have the same username on the new platform.

It will take up to seven business days for existing balances, tournament tickets, and rewards points to be transferred into the new platform. In the meantime, players can make new deposits.

WSOP Online has a 100% deposit bonus (up to $1,000). This promotion includes a WSOP Main Event Seat Drawing entry and seven Free Spins.

If a player doesn’t register for a new WSOP Online account before July 31, they will not have access to transfer their information. After this date, old accounts will be closed and cashed out to the address on file.

Creating a new account quickly will be important for players as WSOP also announced a slew of online tournaments.

WSOP Online bracelet events

WSOP Online will have 30 online bracelet events from June 1 to July 21 for players in New Jersey, Nevada, and Michigan. This is 10 more WSOP Online events than last year.

The increase in online tournaments partially results from the new WSOP Online software. The following are new WSOP online bracelet event features:

  • Mystery Bounties
  • Progressive Knockouts
  • Multi-Phase tournaments

WSOP gold bracelets will be available every Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday during the series of events.

Buy-ins start at $333 for the Triple Treys No Limit Hold’em event celebrating the NBA Finals on June 9. The largest buy-in is $10,000 for the WSOP Online Championship event that will begin on July 11 — after the 2024 WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas.

Five high-roller events will take place at WSOP Online this summer. These unique hybrid events will have tournaments that start online and final tables that occur live in Las Vegas at the WSOP.

There are a handful of events with million-dollar guaranteed payouts including two Mystery Bounty events scheduled over the next couple of months.

Most WSOP Online tournament buy-ins are between $400 and $1,000.

Caesars has a special event for anyone who deposits at WSOP Online from May 28 to June 29. Every person who makes a deposit will receive a complimentary entry into a $100,000 player appreciation freeroll No Limit Hold’em event.
