Online poker has been in the news the last few months, because there has been a push in America to legalize online gambling. Nevada has already passed the law for online poker and other states are soon to follow. With this in mind, the World Series of Poker has been promoting unique offers as they have plans to soon launch their online WSOP.com website.
Those players who are currently taking part at the WSOP, have a chance to create a WSOP.com online poker account. Those who take advantage of this offer, will automatically be able to get a share of the large amount of bonuses ($700,000) in all that is being given away by WSOP.com to anyone who signs up during the tournament.
The current rules that govern the registration of WSOP.com accounts will ensure that those players who are over 21 years old, will be entered into a “36 Seat Giveaway” which will see a random selection to determine the winner. The winner will then be given a seat to the next day’s starting event. One of the key events that will take place is an $111,111 buy-in no-limit hold’em that has a staggering $10,000,000 prize pool.
Apart from all these events, the WSOP.com is also launching the “Online Nine” and the “WSOP.com Online Championships” which comes with $500,000 in additional money. This event begins with a $100,000 free roll. WSOP has also made it official that all players who create a WSOP.com online account at the WSOP will be entered into the free roll planned for the month of October. This is expected to be the first online poker event of the WSOP.com Online Championships. While there is no entrance fee, it is mandatory for those willing to take part to be physically located in the state of Nevada.
While there is a lot of hype about the launch of WSOP.com and other online poker websites, poker players are still a bit skeptical about the quality of the online software. One of the reasons for the concerns was because Ultimate Poker which launched late April in Nevada had a number of issues with their online poker software.
On one of the forums a user posted an online comment targeting the WSOP.com online launch. The comment read
How about them hiring a decent IT Team to fix that dollar store server it been down for days so if this is an indication of the way they run a poker site maybe they should cash out and make money another way cause right now there is no way players will stand for cheap bugged filled software.
WSOP.com is however working hard to ensure that when they do launch, players will have a real time live casino experience.
