Online poker players in Michigan have another option available to them after WSOP.com launched in the state earlier this week.
Following their launch in Michigan, WSOP.com is now available in four states. Michigan joins Pennsylvania, Nevada and New Jersey. WSOP.com currently has a deal to share online poker player pool in Nevada and New Jersey, but neither Pennsylvania nor Michigan is currently part of that deal. This limits WSOP.com players in Michigan to play against in-state opponents only.
While announcing the launch on WSOP.com in Michigan, WSOP representatives also announced poker pro Joe Cada, a Michigan native, as the WSOP.com ambassador for the state. Cada, who won the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2009 and has three other WSOP bracelets to his name, will host live streaming sessions on the site, take part in bounty tournaments, and host live tournament in Michigan.
WSOP representatives also highlighted 2013 WSOP Main Event champion Ryan Reiss, who is also from Michigan, during their launch announcement. “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.”
