WSOP.com, the official site of Caesars Entertainment’s World Series of Poker, has gone live in Pennsylvania, after a successful soft-launch period that began on July 12. The poker site is operated in partnership with poker and iGaming giant 888 Holdings. It operates on 888’s new software, called Poker 8.
WSOP.com is now one of four poker sites in Pennsylvania. The market had been dominated by PokerStarsPA, which had a monopoly in the state until being joined by BorgataPoker and MGMPoker.
Pennsylvania is the first state to employ 888’s new software. The software has already entered European markets. Poker 8 represents a significant upgrade on the software used by other WSOP USA sites, employing sharp graphics and a user-friendly interface.
High-quality mobile apps for WSOP.com are available for both Android and iOS devices. WSOP already has live poker rooms in Nevada and New Jersey. It is not yet known when Pennsylvania will seek out other states to enter an agreement to pool players among several states.
