Caesars Entertainment and World Series of Poker have combined the player pools from three US states into one network with the launch of the real-money poker platform WSOP Online.

The operator says WSOP is the first poker operator to pool liquidity across three US jurisdictions with players from the states of Michigan, Nevada and New Jersey.

Rebranding from to WSOP Online, the platform will have “upgraded functionality such as four-table capabilities on mobile, including Omaha, multi-flight re-entry tournaments, in-app gift drops and exciting game derivatives, including Mystery Bounty” as well as new features, promotions and weekly tournaments.

“This platform upgrade is long overdue and is a big win for our players,” commented 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.”

Nevada and New Jersey users will need to complete the pre-registration process to create an account on the new platform. Within 72 hours of the platform’s launch, any existing balances, tournament tickets and rewards points will be transferred into the player account. 

The existing service will be available until May 27, but players will then be prompted to re-install the WSOP Online app following the pre-registration period.

WSOP Online’s launch comes as the 55th edition of the World Series of Poker begins on May 28 at Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas.

From June 1 to July 21, 30 online bracelet events will take place, with gold bracelet events every Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday.

WSOP Online will have exclusive satellites to qualify for land-based tournaments, as well as daily single-table satellites and promotions such as the guaranteed 25-seat Main Event mega-satellites on June 30 and July 3.

The online platform will also kick off five high-roller events under a hybrid format, with final tables contested live in Las Vegas at the WSOP. 

Hybrid events that begin online on June 18 and June 29 will play through their final six players live on July 14, while those that take place on July 10 and 11 will play live on July 15. The online event on July 13 will have its final six players finish live on July 17.
