Following the server side upgrades made by WSOP.com last month to accommodate several software enhancements, some of those improvements are now ready to go live.
WSOP.com has taken steps to reduce the number of location verification issues that players have had while trying to play on the site. Players can now use Wi-Fi technology instead of a mobile device to verify the location. The new feature is available via a software upgrade and does not require that players be connected via Wi-Fi, but only that their computer be able to detect available Wi-Fi connections.
Players are now able to deposit and withdraw from the main cage at the Rio all suites Hotel Casino in Las Vegas. However, players must still initiate the financial tractions online.
Mobile device compatibility is one improvement that is not yet ready to be rolled out. “We expect to be able to rollout both iOS and Android compatible gaming options later this year,” Vice President, Corporate Communications Seth Palansky stated in the press release. Once live, the mobile option will allow players to sign up and play online as well as make deposits.
