WSOP goes live in Michigan
March 28, 2022
The World Series of Poker (WSOP) announced earlier today that its real money online poker offer is now live in Michigan, with 2009 Main Event champion and Great Lakes state’s resident Joe Cada named local poker ambassador. It is the fourth state where WSOP.com operates after Pennsylvania, Nevada, and New Jersey.
“With two world champions coming out of this state, Michigan is a special market for the WSOP,” said Ty Stewart, SVP of the World Series of Poker at Caesars Entertainment. “We’re sorry it’s taken so long, but WSOP.com is ready to make up for our late entry with industry-leading promotions, the biggest weekly tournaments, and player appreciation benefits like freerolls to the Main Event in Las Vegas.”
WSOP.com has also signed a partnership with Joe Cada as a local poker ambassador and is offering a $1,000 bonus to any Michigan resident who can outlast Cada in the 2022 WSOP Main Event. Cada will host live streaming sessions from the site, participate in bounty events and host live tournaments around Michigan. “It’s go time in Michigan,” added Joe Cada. “I know a lot of local players are excited that WSOP.com is finally live in the state and I’m personally looking forward to getting to know all of the great poker players at tournaments and online events soon. Game on!”
WSOP.com, which is the only online site in Michigan where players can earn entry into WSOP offline events, will become Michigan’s most rewarding poker site. Players will receive two online reward credits for every dollar of rake or fee created on the site and can also redeem their points online for cash or tournament tickets.
