U.S. gaming giant Caesars may be gearing up for an October release of its Nevada legal online poker site branded after the World Series of Poker.
While the firm has been reluctant to issue a formal launch date, a promotion on the World Series of Poker promotion read:
"It's almost time to play legal, real-money online poker in Nevada on WSOP.com. To celebrate, a mega cash tournament has been organized, and you're invited!
Starting October 25, 2013 and running through November 2, 2013, the WSOP.com Online Championships will take place. A whopping $500,000 in added prize money will be available, including a special $100,000 Freeroll to kick off the series.
The $100,000 Freeroll will be available only to those who register and verify their WSOP.com account by August 31, 2013, and it will take place October 25 at 7 p.m. Las Vegas time."
While this launch date has not been made official, it seems like a pretty good indicator that the real money action will be available this fall. Casino Listings will keep readers updated as we learn more.
