Ahead of the start of the 2024 World Series of Poker, Caesars Digital and WSOP officials have announced a revamp of their online poker site, WSOP.com. Under the new moniker WSOP Online, the new site will allow the three states that allow online poker play – Nevada, New Jersey, and Michigan – to take part in a compacted action for the first time. The timing of the announcement is perfect for poker players as a massive schedule of online WSOP bracelet events was also announced.

“Long Overdue”

“This platform upgrade is long overdue and is a big win for our players,” said Danielle Barille, Vice President of Online Poker at Caesars Digital. “The best is yet to come for WSOP Online tournaments, and we’re thrilled to bring Michigan players into the fold with Nevada and New Jersey, resulting in a better experience, more value, and the biggest prize pools of the year.”

WSOP Online is encouraging players in the three states to immediately update their software to ensure they can take advantage of the new offerings. In New Jersey and Nevada, players will have to reregister under the new software and a new username will be required, but all existing balances, tournament tickets, and rewards will be transferred over to the new software within 72 hours of the launch of the new platform. That is expected on May 27, with the start of the WSOP coming the next day.

There will be plenty of events for the new WSOP Online. Satellites will be available for all land-based events, some with buy-ins of only $1, and daily single-table satellites will be a primary feature.

Massive Schedule of Official WSOP Bracelet Tournaments

The schedule of online bracelet events is the biggest in the history of the WSOP. Thirty different bracelet events will be contested beginning on June 1, with Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays being the days that bracelet tournaments will be held. The tournaments will include a $333 “Triple Treys” tournament celebrating the National Basketball Association Finals and bring a $10,000 WSOP Online Championship (to be contested on July 11) to the online arena.

Five ‘High Roller’ tournaments will also be a part of the roster of events. These tournaments will be in a hybrid format, with opening action on the five dates (June 18, June 29, July 10, July 11, and July 13) playing out online. Once those tournaments reach the final six players, they then will be paused to allow players to come to Las Vegas to play for the bracelet (on July 14 (June 10 & June 29), July 15 (July 10-11), and July 17 (July 13).

There will be other bracelet events held that are state-specific, including the state of Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania was not added to the new WSOP Online because, at this time, Pennsylvania has not joined the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement (MSIGA) that would allow it to pool players with the other states. Without their participation in the MSIGA, Pennsylvania is still off in the wilderness of the fractured U. S. online poker market.

A full slate of events for each state can be found for Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania by visiting WSOP.com. When WSOP Online goes live, however, it will usher in a new era of online poker for those in the states affected.
