Nevada is a gambling mecca, home to Las Vegas which in turn bills itself as “The Entertainment Capital of the World”. Which makes sense considering some of the worlds biggest and best casinos are housed on the Las Vegas Strip. Las Vegas is also home to the iconic World Series of Poker event that happens annually at the Rio All Suite Casino & Hotel and is one of the most prestigious poker live events on the calendar.

So it come as no surprise that Nevada has been at the forefront of legalized online gambling, with the state offering legalized online poker to its residents since 2011 and was the first state post Black Friday to offer a legal igaming experience to its residents.

Online operators WSOP.com and 888poker have a shared online poker network in Nevada and have now bought their offering to New Jersey thanks to the new trio-state shared player pool. Nevada and Delaware have been sharing online poker tables since March 2015. With the merging of the player pools it marks the first time players can win a World Series of Poker online event outside of Nevada.

When the states combined player pools on May 1, 2018 Nevada players need to download a new poker client and create a new account along with a new screen name. However, all such customers were able to take advantage of a new player signup bonus. To further incentivize the switch, those that preregistered a new account have been entered into a drawing for a WSOP Main Event seat.

The WSOP.com dominates the online poker space in the state and contributes to 99% of all cash game traffic.

Notably due to Nevada gaming law that strictly prohibits Heads Up Display use, players wanting to take advantage of the shared player pool will not to be able to use HUDs. However, players wanting to review their hands will be able to do so by contacting WSOP.com Customer Support to request their hand history files.

To celebrate the beginning of the tri-state player pool between New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware, WSOP.com created a new online series called the Coast to Coast Classic, that ran for the first time in May 2018. It guaranteed $1 million in prize money to players in Nevada and New Jersey.
