The World Series of Poker (WSOP) brand launched its real-money online poker room in Pennsylvania on Monday, becoming the fourth online poker operator to join what is currently the largest regulated market in the US.
At approximately 2pm local time, WSOP PA hosted its first real money game in an open testing environment, with a full slate of games but for a limited period of hours. As previously indicated, the playing pool is currently limited to players within the state, segregated from its existing New Jersey and Nevada network.
The operator delivered on its promise to bring the new Poker 8 software to Pennsylvania from day one. Developed by 888, WSOP’s long-time partner in the United States, the new platform brings a modern design, a host of new features, and quality mobile apps for Android and iOS devices.
Though the room is undergoing its soft-launch phase, that did not stop it from offering a full promotional package to welcome new players, consisting of a 100% welcome bonus up to $1000, $50 in free play, and some freeroll tickets thrown into the mix for all depositors.
