WSOP online poker in New Jersey

Reasons to choose WSOP New Jersey:
  • The iconic WSOP brand is one you can trust, and has exclusive promotions tied to the summer World Series tournament.
  • Get a 100% Match Bonus of up to $400 on your first deposit.
  • Backed by Caesars, one of the largest gaming companies in the world. The VIP program is tied to the Total Rewards program and you can deposit and withdraw at the Cage in Caesars properties.

New Player Bonuses and Incentives

Deposit match bonus: 100% up to $400, high clearance rate

WSOP will match your first deposit with a bonus of up to $400. This money sits in a special “bonus” account, and you earn it by playing cash games and tournaments. The bonus releases in chunks with the first $10 released in $1 increments for every 10 APPs earned. The next $40 will be released in $5 chunks (for every 50 APPs earned) and the remaining $350 will be released in $10.00 chunks (for every 100 APPs earned).

While the clearance requirement is higher than on other New Jersey sites, combined with the VIP program it is still a pretty good deal:

You have 60 days to clear it, which should be enough time for many players to clear the full $400 (you’ll need to rake just over $33 a day).

VIP Program

As you play, you earn WSOP status points at a rate of 2 APPs for every dollar paid in rake.

The real rewards start at Silver where WSOP points can be converted into real money. This money goes into your bankroll, and can be withdrawn at any time—there’s no playthrough requirement or other hoops to jump through. Every 100 WSOP Points can be redeemed for $1.

Moving up in tiers increases the rate you accumulate WSOP points by way of a multiplier. There are eight tiers based on monthly accumulation of points, and two that work on an annual basis.

Banking Options

The easiest way to make a deposit at WSOP NJ is to use the e-check feature, also known as an ACH payment.

PayPal is another easy way to make a deposit online. You can also withdraw your money back to your PayPal account too!.

WSOP NJ also accepts Visa and MasterCard, though these are only accepted for deposits—not withdrawals.

For those that don’t want to expose their banking information or credit card numbers to an online gaming site, they can use the virtual payment processor NETELLER.

And for those that prefer to use cash, they may do so by using PayNearMe to deposit cash at over 7,500 7-Eleven stores nationwide..
