WSOP.com Enters Pennsylvania Online Poker Market

Written By: Maya Michaels | July 13, 2021 | Posted In Poker News

WSOP.com has gone live in Pennsylvania. 

The online poker room tweeted:

WE ARE HERE 😍 🚨  http://WSOP.com PA is now live with limited hours during our soft launch period. Please visit http://wsop.com/softlaunch for more info.

The soft launch period began on Monday, July 12 at 2:00pm ET; and it will run through July 15. As long as no problems arise that would necessitate extended downtime or regulatory review (it would be very unusual for this to happen), the full launch will happen on Friday.

During the soft launch, WSOP.com’s hours will be limited. Outside operational hours, nobody will be able to login or even download the software. The soft launch hours are as follows:

Monday, July 12: 2:00pm – 10:00pm ET

Tuesday, July 13: 12:00pm – 10:00pm ET

Wednesday, July 14: 12:00pm – 12:00am ET

Thursday, July 15: TBA

As one might expect, traffic is fairly light on the first day. At about 9:15pm ET, there are 43 cash game players. The multi-table tournaments have had from 15 to 39 players.

WSOP.com is giving everyone who creates a Pennsylvania account and deposits $10 a free $50 in free play. It cannot be cashed out, but any winnings earned from its use will be available for withdrawal. In addition, those same players will receive seven tickets to daily $100 freerolls. The freeroll on Monday drew 70 entrants.

The PA online poker market is currently dominated by PokerStars PA, the first operator to launch in the Keystone State, in November 2019 and it was the only operator in the state until last April. Borgata Poker and BetMGM Poker, are the two operators that went live relatively recently.
