As the interstate compact takes effect on May 1st, bringing WSOP poker platforms in New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware together, there will be a ton of quality online poker action available. The WSOP is preparing to offer players exciting incentives over the next few months, including $15 million in guarantees from May to September, during the biggest summer ever at WSOP.com.
WSOP.com will also be offering online poker players $100,000 Sunday Tournaments, which will take place each Sunday and feature a buy-in of $320. Sunday will include a total of $250,000 up for grabs, with players finding a host of tournaments on this day’s schedule. For daily guarantees, WSOP.com will feature $10,000 minimums, with each day providing a $10,000 event, with some including a $25,000 or $50,000 during the month.
For the Sunday $100k, WSOP.com will be providing daily freerolls to the weekly event. Players can compete in a daily freeroll to win a seat to the big event for absolutely free. From May 1st to the 14th, the WSOP will offer players a daily freeroll to earn a spot into Event #10 of the WSOP, an online satellite event.
Starting on May 1st and continuing until July 13th, players will find WSOP satellites running 24/7. These satellites will help players earn a spot into one of the upcoming WSOP events in Las Vegas. Players from Nevada and Delaware will have access to a quality Sit & Go experience, titled Blast Poker for All, which will provide the opportunity to compete for a prize pool as much as 10,000x the original buy-in.
Bill Rini, the Head of Online Poker at WSOP.com, commented on the new options via press release by stating: “We can’t wait for our existing players and hopefully a host of first-time players to experience the new WSOP.com. with the advent of tri-state shared liquidity, we have completely revamped our tournament schedules, our cash games offerings, our loyalty program and our promotional calendar to deliver the best online poker experience in this new world order.”
Interstate poker pooling will see customers from each of the three states playing against each other for the very first time. This will provide larger prize pools, a nicer gaming selection and larger time zone coverage. WSOP.com uses GeoComply technology to ensure compliance across the three-state pool.
On top of gaming options and the revamped tournament schedule, WSOP.com has also changed their loyalty club. Poker Rewards will now allow players to earn as much as 32% rake back based on loyalty level. Players start at the Player level and can advance to Bronze, Silver, Elite and Champions Club, each requiring specific APPs and offering a percentage of rake back.
