Pennsylvania has become the third state to get the World Series of Poker online poker service after the Caesars-owned platform was approved of by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
The launch will let players in the Keystone State access various games and tournaments, with the likes of Texas Hold'em, Omaha, and other varieties on offer. Players will also have the chance to play in qualifying tournaments, with buy-ins to The Main Event in Las Vegas on the line.
Various bonuses and promotions are also being made available to players with the goal of showing off the poker room's offering. The company is going to be facing some stiff competition, as PokerStars is also present and has been the dominant platform throughout much of the globe.
Commenting on the launch World Series of Poker SVP Ty Stewart 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."
Players who want to experience WSOP in Pennsylvania must be 21 years of age or older and physically located within the state at the time of play.
