WSOP.com Online Poker in New Jersey
As a Caesars Entertainment property, WSOP.com had no problems with finding a brick-and-mortar casino partner that would allow it to open its virtual gates for the New Jersey-based customers. Consequently, when the Garden State’s legal online gambling market launched, WSOP.com was ready to join the action under the Bally’s/888 license.
The combined revenue of WSOP.com and its sister sites HarrahsCasino.com, 888Casino.com and CaesarsCasino.com reached $43 million in 2017, placing Caesars Entertainment as the #3 in the New Jersey online market. Even better, the sites are grossing more and more with every passing month, maintaining an impressive growth rate. However, it is worth pointing out that poker accounts only for about a third of the overall traffic on all of the Caesars’ sites, which means that WSOP.com is still losing to PartyPoker in terms of the size of its player pool.
The launch of the Multi-State Internet Gaming Alliance on May 1, 2018, means players at 888 Poker and WSOP.com in New Jersey can play in the same pool with players from Nevada and Delaware. The shared player pool essentially unites the family of 888/WSOP players in all three states.
As briefly touched on above, WSOP.com operates under Caesars Bally’s/888 license and as such is powered by 888 exclusive poker software. 888 Holdings was founded in 1997 and is a Gibraltar-based company with thousands of customers located all over the world.
The WSOP poker software is available as a downloadable client and is compatible with both Windows PC and Mac OSX. Furthermore, the site gives you access to its own loyalty program, which was already launched in Nevada and which rewards players for participating in ring games or tournament play. As you’d expect, WSOP.com offers plenty of action including both single-table and multi-table tournaments, making it an excellent choice for poker enthusiasts residing in the New Jersey area.

Founded in 1970 and purchased by Caesars Entertainment in 2005, the World Series of Poker has always been one of the most trusted brands in the industry. The WSOP brand is most widely recognized for its prestigious series of poker tournaments that attracts professional players from all over the world. The total prizes for all the WSOP events up to this day exceed $1.6 billion and WSOP champions are often considered to be the best poker players on the planet.
However, the goal of WSOP.com is to strike the proper balance between competitive and casual play, which shouldn’t be all that surprising if you consider the fact that Caesars Entertainment is pretty much the largest online and offline casino gaming company.
Caesars online products range from social games to real money offerings, but the corporation also owns numerous land-based casinos under the Bally’s, Harrah’s, Caesars and Horseshoe brands, including four resorts of this kind located within Atlantic City.
