WSOP Review - World Series Of Poker

"WSOP is the first bona fide US licensed poker room listed at Casinomeister."


Casinomeister's Verdict

WSOP would be even more awesome if they were able to take on more States, and if 888 Holdings didn’t have such a spotted past. But where else are you going to play if you want to play online poker?

Caveat:You need to carefully read the casinos’ terms and conditions to ensure that you are able to play there legally. In most US States it’s +21. If you or anyone you know has a gambling problem, please call this free hotline – 800-GAMBLER – this gives disordered gamblers and their loved ones confidential assistance 24/

Action Club VIP Program
The VIP program at is a called Action Club. Nevada and New Jersey have different programs. That occurs because the tax rate in Nevada is less than half what it is in New Jersey. passes some of that tax burden to New Jersey customers.

Nevada and Delaware Liquidity Sharing Agreement

Nevada and Delaware announced an online poker partnership in February 2014. It was the first of its kind in the United States. Nevada and Delaware agreed to share player pools between the states. This agreement went live in March 2015. It does not include New Jersey.

It has been a bust for Delaware. The player pool averaged about 20 players and about $40,000 in rake per month before the agreement. These numbers have dropped nearly in half since. The number of players added to the Nevada network was so negligible it barely registered. averages about 170 players and peaks around 400 daily in both Nevada and New Jersey. It holds a 99% market share in Nevada and a 50% market share in New Jersey. The Borgata/Party Poker partnership holds the other half of the New Jersey market.

Games & Software

888 powers software in Nevada and New Jersey. 888 is the same company that operates the Delaware Lottery poker and casino network. The 888 brand is not used to market Delaware online gaming. The state’s three racinos – Delaware Park, Dover Down and Harrington Raceway – are used. New Jersey is an intrastate site. It shares player pools with 888 New Jersey. Nevada shares all cash games and most tournaments with Delaware. Cash Games Available offers five different poker variants. Texas Hold’em is by far the most popular. It is available in no limit and fixed limit. Virtually all of the Texas Hold’em action is at no limit. There is also Pot Limit Omaha High and High/Low. Fixed limit Omaha High/Low is spread. Seven Card Stud and Seven Card Stud High/Low are in the software in the fixed limit format. Neither stud game is very popular. Cash games rake 5% in Nevada and 5.5% in New Jersey. The cap depends on the limit. The rake is higher in New Jersey because of the higher tax rate.

Sit and Gos

Sit and gos are available in several formats. All Texas Hold’em tournaments are spread as no limit. These games are available in 2, 6, 9 and 18 seats. The speeds are normal, turbo and super turbo. The rake is 9% for normal speed sit and gos, 8% for turbo and 7% for super turbo. Some No Limit Texas Hold’em sit and gos are satellites to multi table tournaments.

Pot Limit Omaha and Omaha High/Low are available as sit and gos. These events have six seats and run at normal speed. There are no other sit and go games spread.

Sit and go buy-in amounts are $1, $5, $10, $25, $50, $100 and $200. It is rare to find a sit and go running higher than $25 in either Nevada or New Jersey.

Multi table tournaments spreads about 50 tournaments each day. The biggest tournament is held on Sunday. It has a $200 buy-in. The guaranteed prize pool varies. It depends on the season. The lowest is $15,000. It can run as high as $50,000 in Nevada during the summer World Series of Poker season. The typical guaranteed prize pool is $20,000 or $25,000. This weekly event has several satellites and super satellites throughout the week.

Each state spreads several $3,000 to $5,000 daily guaranteed prize pool tournaments. These events have buy-ins between $30 and $50. The smallest buy-in event is $1. These run many times each day.

Most tournaments offer rebuys and add-ons. It is safe to assume that any tournament that is not described as a freezeout has an R&A. Late registration is available one hour after the first hand is dealt in smaller tournaments. Most large tournaments have a two-hour registration period. All tournaments must have eight players to start.

Nearly all multi table tournaments at are No Limit Texas Hold’em. There are a couple of Pot Limit Omaha and Pot Limit Omaha High/Low tournaments each week.

World Series of Poker Events Spread at Nevada offers many satellites during the summer tournament season. These start with satellites to the $500 Casino Employees Event #1. Satellites run for $500 lammers daily throughout the World Series of Poker. Many sit and gos are spread to events held in the coming days that run as soon as it fills.

The World Series of Poker started running an online event in 2015. This was a $1,000 tournament held on July 2. It started online at and moved to the Rio when it reached six-handed. It relaunched on July 4 and ran until there was a winner. This tournament was considered just as much of a bracelet event as the ones held entirely at Rio.

Players were encouraged to log into at Rio. A lounge was created with plugs and wireless internet connections. A concierge office was set up in the Lambada Room at the Rio Convention Center throughout the World Series of Poker. Deposits, withdrawals and account creation were available in this office.

New Jersey World Series of Poker tournaments are not as frequent as ones in Nevada. NJ spread some Main Event satellites and some special Sunday tournaments offering travel packages.
