WSOP’s Debut in Michigan

WSOP is one of the newest online poker sites to launch in the Mitten State, giving poker gamers in Michigan some intriguing new possibilities. As one of the top poker brands in the world, WSOP is at the forefront of all things poker.

On March 28, 2022, WSOP launched in Michigan in collaboration with 888poker, one of the largest poker software suppliers in the world, giving MI poker gamers another secure and fully regulated way to enjoy online gaming. The brand swiftly carved up an amazing percentage of the Michigan online poker industry after its inception, easily surpassing BetMGM to take the position of second-largest poker service in the state.

The outstanding WSOP MI introductory bonuses, a four-part package that includes freerolls, $50 in free cash, and a sizable deposit bonus, delivering up to $1000 in extra value, undoubtedly contributed to the site’s early success. The total package is by far the greatest new player offer in the state and gives fantastic value.

In order to provide both seasoned grinders and casual gamers with the finest possible gaming experience, WSOP also provides a high-quality software platform and a mobile app. WSOP Michigan is a futuristic poker operator, running on cutting-edge Poker 8 software.

About WSOP

WSOP US is a well-known brand in the poker market. Since it has been going on for well over 50 years, the World Series of Poker has maintained its status as the greatest and most important tournament in the poker world.

As soon as the chance to enter the regulated US online poker industry presented itself, WSOP did so in an effort to increase its market share. Over the final few months of 2013, WSOP.com established online poker sites in Nevada and New Jersey in collaboration with 888 as its interactive partner.

The MultiState Internet Gaming Agreement (MSIGA), which Nevada and Delaware signed in 2015, enables operators to transfer liquidity between states. New Jersey joined the agreement in 2017, enabling the US WSOP to expand through the interstate network of five poker sites.

The WSOP USA carried on establishing its foothold in the online market during the following several years, this is what it had been doing in live poker for decades. The operator confirmed its US presence, offering players a service that is 100% secure and backed by the reputable 888poker software.

WSOP USA was one of the first US poker rooms to become available to online players, and as such, it made a substantial contribution to the growth of the regulated poker business of the US as a whole.

WSOP.com quickly assisted Nevada in setting a new record for player traffic after going live there in 2013. The only other website at the time that was active in Nevada was Ultimate Poker, however, that operator left the market in 2014.

Geolocation services and player authentication systems initially gave WSOP some trouble. Although annoying, these issues were very normal in the new setting and were quickly addressed.
