WSOP online platform goes live in Michigan

| By Marese O'Hagan
Caesars has announced that its World Series of Poker (WSOP)-branded online poker site has gone live in Michigan.

This marks the fourth state WSOP.com now operates in, having already gone live in Pennsylvania, Nevada and New Jersey.

Customers in Michigan will be able to play a number of live-action games on WSOP.com, including No Limit Hold and Pot Limit Omaha.

Players can also link their WSOP online rewards credits to their Caesars Rewards account.

“With two world champions coming out of this state, Michigan is a special market for the WSOP,” said Ty Stewart, SVP of the World Series of Poker at Caesars Entertainment. “We’re sorry it’s taken so long, but WSOP.com is ready to make up for our late entry with industry-leading promotions, the biggest weekly tournaments, and player appreciation benefits like free rolls to the Main Event in Las Vegas.”

With the launch, WSOP.com offer several exclusive sign-up promotions, including $50 in free credits. WSOP has also partnered with Joe Cada, 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event champion, for the launch. WSOP is offering $1,000 to any Michigan resident that can outlast Cada in the WSOP Main Event 2022.

“It’s go time in Michigan,” said Cada. “I know a lot of local players are excited that WSOP.com is finally live in the state and I’m personally looking forward to getting to know all of the great poker players at tournaments and online events soon.”

Interstate poker was permitted in Michigan through a bill that was signed into law in January 2021.
