The Great Lake state becomes WSOP fourth state to go live in

Michigan has become the fourth state to go live with The World Series of Poker’s online platform, WSOP.com.

Joining Pennsylvania, Nevada, and New Jersey, WSOP.com in Michigan will feature various live-action games from No Limit Hold’em to Pot Limit Omaha. Moreover, WSP Online will also offer guaranteed tournaments, exclusive 2022 WSOP satellites to gold bracelet events in Las Vegas, and Blast Poker. 

“With two world champions coming out of this state, Michigan is a special market for the WSOP,” said Ty Stewart, SVP of the World Series of Poker at Caesars Entertainment. “We’re sorry it’s taken so long, but WSOP.com is ready to make up for our late entry with industry-leading promotions, the biggest weekly tournaments, and player appreciation benefits like freerolls to the Main Event in Las Vegas.”

WSOP.com is said to be the only online site in Michigan where players can earn entry into its offline events, including pokers’ world championships, known as the Main Event, which will be hosted on The Las Vegas Strip for the first time this summer. 

To commemorate the Michigan launch, WSOP.com players will receive $50 free with $25 immediately playable and $25 upon first deposit. Players can also claim a deposit match up to $1,000 and receive access to welcome week freerolls after making their first deposit.

WSOP.com has also signed a partnership with 2009 Main Event champion and Michigan resident Joe Cada as a local poker ambassador. Cada will host live streaming sessions from the site, participate in bounty events, and host live tournaments around Michigan.

“It’s go time in Michigan,” Cada added. “I know a lot of local players are excited that WSOP.com is finally live in the state and I’m personally looking forward to getting to know all the great poker players at tournaments and online events soon. Game on!”
