World Series of Poker Makes Online Poker History with Launch of All-new WSOP Online

Published

on

 

Caesars Entertainment Inc. and the World Series of Poker (WSOP) announced the launch of an all-new real-money poker platform, WSOP Online that combines player pools in Michigan, Nevada, and New Jersey into one network. The move makes online poker history, as WSOP becomes the first poker operator to pool liquidity across three U.S. jurisdictions.

WSOP.COM officially rebrands as WSOP Online, featuring 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. Poker players can also expect exciting new features, bigger promotions, and weekly tournaments with more players than ever before.

“This platform upgrade is long overdue and is a big win for our players. 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,” Danielle Barille, Vice President of Online Poker at Caesars Digital, said.

Effective immediately, existing players in Nevada and New Jersey should go online to complete the pre-registration process to create an account on the new platform. Once players create a new username, any existing balances, tournament tickets, and rewards points will be transferred into the player account within 72 hours of the launch of the new platform. After the pre-registration period, current players will be prompted to re-install the WSOP Online app.

The launch of the upgraded WSOP Online real-money poker app comes at the perfect time, as the 55th edition of the World Series of Poker kicks off on May 28 at Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas, and features the largest slate of online bracelet events ever.

This summer will see 30 online bracelet events beginning June 1 and culminating with the last WSOP bracelet contest on July 21. Every Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday of the series will feature an official gold bracelet up for grabs, from the $333 Triple Treys No Limit Hold’em event celebrating the professional basketball championship series to the new $10,000 WSOP Online Championship on July 11.

In addition, exclusive satellites to qualify for land-based tournaments will be offered on WSOP Online, with entry fees as low as $1. There will also be daily single-table satellites and massive promotions, such as the guaranteed 25-seat Main Event mega-satellites on June 30 and July 3.

Five high-roller events will also begin on WSOP Online, playing under a hybrid format, with their final tables contested live in Las Vegas at the WSOP. The hybrid events that begin online on June 18 and June 29 will play through their final six players live on July 14, those that take place on July 10 and 11 will play live on July 15, and the online event on July 13 will have its final six players finish live on July 17.

THE MONEYMAKER TOUR RETURNS TO HARD ROCK CINCINNATI WITH MORE THAN $1 MILLION UP FOR GRABS

Published

on

 

Following a hugely successful first event in Cincinnati, Ohio in September 2023, the Moneymaker Tour is returning to the Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati on September 17 – 30, 2024 with a packed schedule that will guarantee more than $1 million across 15 trophy events. 

In September 2023’s inaugural stop at Hard Rock Cincinnati, the $1,500 Main Event was contested by 788 players and won by Joseph Bakun for $208,034. He was joined at the final table by Chris Moneymaker himself and WSOP Champion Joseph McKeehen and as well as the top cash prize, he also took home a crystal Moneymaker Tour trophy and a guitar trophy.

The Moneymaker Tour was created in 2023 by 2003 WSOP Champion and ACR Team Pro, Chris Moneymaker and Moneymaker Tour Executive Manager, Tony Burns. The Tour was conceived as a way for Moneymaker to give poker players opportunities to have their own ordinary to extraordinary moments as he did.

Despite its relative newcomer status, the Moneymaker Tour has made a name for itself, recently being voted the third most popular live poker tournament series behind only the World Series of Poker and the World Poker Tour, in a State of Poker survey. Since its inception, there have been eight events throughout Florida, Cincinnati and Houston.

The Tour has also recently announced new venues including a first visit to the birthplace of the Moneymaker boom with an event in Las Vegas from June 28 – July 6 at MGM Grand and its first international Main Event at Casino Aruba in October.

“Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati will team up with the Moneymaker Tour for a return in 2024” said Christopher Herbert, Hard Rock Cincinnati Manger of Poker & Sportsbook. “Hard Rock Cincinnati is grateful to be a part of the fastest growing poker tour in 2023. Chris Moneymaker, Tony Burns and their staff delivered an incredible experience for our guests during the 2023 Moneymaker Tour stop. There’s no better place to be in September 2024 than Cincinnati Ohio!”

“After an amazing series last September, we are excited to return to Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati”, said Tony Burns, Executive Manager of the Moneymaker Tour. “Continuing to partner with one of the most recognisable brands in the world amplifies our reach, resonates with our audience, and rocks our business to a whole other level.”
