In 2013, Caesars Entertainment finally gave us a WSOP.com online poker room which uses the reliable 888poker software: WSOP Poker. At first it launched as WSOP.com NV and WSOP.com New Jersey, so action was hard to come by compared to most international poker sites. But that took an upswing when three legalized US states (NJ, NV, DE) entered a player-sharing agreement in 2018. Now, traffic year-round is now much more consistent - we’re talking roughly 300-400 players on average at peak times.
Plus, game selection is on the rise. WSOP app offers No-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud and Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo. But it’s hard to find Stud games going in all honesty. Nonetheless there are full ring games, jackpot sit-and-gos and multi-table tournaments available in each poker variant. Now you’ll find a more solid wsop.com schedule running daily and weekly, with special series like the Winter Online Championships.
WSOP.com poker app is already a popular destination for players just learning the game. And it is possible to find some incredibly soft games right now. The small stakes No-Limit Hold’em games are particularly good for experienced players looking for some quick wins. But the ability to win a real WSOP gold bracelet online also takes things to a whole different level. With opportunities to satellite into the big live events as well as buy-in to the online bracelet events. So expect a flood of traffic throughout the summer.
WSOP NJ and NV Status
Although the WSOP app got a slow start, the great brand recognition brought it back up to speed. WSOP.com USA is currently available to online poker players in Nevada and New Jersey, who both share a player pool along with Delaware - since 2018. So prize pools have gotten bigger and will continue to grow as more states legalize poker online. Pennsylvania did so in 2019, followed by Michigan and West Virginia. However, all of them have yet to confirm any pool sharing agreements - here’s hoping.
When it comes to online poker in New Jersey, WSOP.com has modest traffic. Still, there's no question the power of the WSOP brand remains strong, thus building a more consistent player base. Subsequently, you get a nice uptick in tournament guarantees and bigger online series. There’s also possibilities to win a real WSOP gold bracelet online. The WSOP Online Circuit also awards the famed WSOPC rings and offers entries into the Global Casino Championship.
Summer is peak traffic time since players flood WSOP USA for its exclusive live WSOP and WSOP Circuit satellites.
But you can still find much better cash games and tournaments all year long.
Play WSOP.com for Actual WSOP Bracelets
You can also compete for legitimate WSOP bracelets in online events during the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Fact: the first-ever WSOP bracelet to be awarded outside of Vegas in the summer was won by a player from WSOP.com New Jersey! Who’s to say it can’t be you?
WSOP satellites are a big deal on WSOP NJ and WSOP.com Nevada. Because you can actually win seats and packages for the live WSOP events - Chris Moneymaker-style. We’re talking both for the WSOP Main Event package, and the smaller buy-in WSOP Circuit (WSOPC) package. Basically a seat in any WSOP event of your choice. Daily and weekly satellites start at $1 and direct qualifiers can be as little as $10.
WSOP Circuit Satellites and Online Events
The WSOP Circuit is the lower buy-in, more regional series where players can win WSOPC Rings and play their way into the Global Casino Championship. WSOPC events run all over the country and now a new Online WSOPC Series has been added with 13 events.
As for online satellites, the World Series of Poker is of course the flagship poker series in the entire world with 70+ events spread over 7 weeks in the Las Vegas summer. Right after the New Year players typically start ramping up their efforts to win their WSOP seats/hotel packages online and WSOP.com NJ (and WSOP NV) are the exclusive spot to do it online.
WSOP.com NJ/NV Player of the Year Race
Steadfast grinders compete in MTTs all year to earn points for the Player of the Year leaderboard. At the end of the calendar year the online player with the most leaderboard points wins:
- $10,000 Cash Prize
- Exclusive WSOP.com Player of the Year Ring
- VIP Seating for at the WSOP Main Event Final Table
POY points are awarded in all scheduled Multi-Table Tournaments (MTTs) that award cash prizes; some tournaments use POY point multipliers.

Tournaments and Freerolls
The WSOP app offers a wealth of tournaments at varying buy-in levels, although the majority of action is in the under $10 range. The players are generally soft and it’s likely many are first-timers after seeing a WSOP broadcast on TV. WSOP Poker is the only place to qualify via satellite for the live World Series of Poker in Vegas. Plus, since the introduction of the World Series of Poker's first online bracelet event in 2015, you can compete for real WSOP gold online!
Effective May 1, 2018, player pools at WSOP.com are officially shared among all three states with legal online poker (NJ, Nevada, Delaware). The boost from the merged player pools has generally seen the major guarantees exceeded and most small guarantees bumped slightly. You can access the full lineup at WSOP.com NJ or NV for multiple MTTs and freerolls - but here are the highlights:
$100,000 Sunday Major
Overall WSOP.com NJ (with NV, PA and DE) now offers $250k GTD each week in tournaments. The backbone of that is the $100,000 GTD Sunday Major event. Direct buy in is $320 but smaller $30, $50 and $75 buy-in satellites run during the week to secure entry. Plus, there are two daily freerolls offering tickets to the event if you can get in on time.
The most popular tournament every week is the $25k Tuesday with a low buy-in and a big field pushing up the value even more. Dozens of smaller buy-in freezeout, turbos and Sit & Gos run throughout the week at all stakes levels. Daily $10,000 and $15,000 guarantee tournaments are also currently on the schedule.
$100 Daily Freeroll

Read more about Jackpot SnGs here.
WSOP Satellites 24/7 and WSOP Gold

So check the tournament schedule for full details. With the introduction of the World Series of Poker's first online bracelet event in 2015 you can now compete for real WSOP gold online too.
Software and Graphics
Let's cut to the chase: the WSOP.com NJ software isn't a world-beater. It's not fancy, doesn't give you 100s of customizations options and the aesthetic, well, can best be described as "classic." If you're a hardcore grinder looking for cascading multi-tabling and a wide range of poker stat tracking options, this won't tickle you. But it’s a functional, effective poker client for 90% of players - providing the most critical elements of an online poker platform:
In short, it does what it needs to do. Geolocation is not an issue, lags or disconnects aren't either and it doesn't bog down your computer. Navigation is fairly intuitive, the lobby and sub-lobbies are simple to peruse and games are easy to find/register for. Sorted by game formats and table stakes.
The WSOP USA experience runs on WSOP/888 software. Overall, we’d say it’s a clean online package you can trust with a partnership of two big-name brands in poker. All the industry standard features are there with avatars, multi-tabling, player notes, advanced search and filter options. Plus a choice of three main views: classic, avatar and clear. Games offered include Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card and Seven-Card Hi-Lo. IN cash games, SnGs and MTTS.
WSOP Mobile App
You can download the WSOP app for iPhone, iPad or Android devices either via WSOP.com online poker itself or the App Store. Both poker with real money and practice mode are available on the mobile app. Another pro of WSOP.com licensed and regulated in the USA is that a WSOP.com withdrawal or deposit is swift and simple.
- Solid interface with easy-to-use buttons, navigable lobby & cashier
- Withdrawals and deposits possible on WSOP.com app too*
- Geo-location ensure you're within NJ / NV borders and eligible to play
*You'll need to jump over to a web browser to complete. Don’t worry - it’s all fast and secured by SSL encryption.

If you already have a WSOP.com NJ account:
Simply download the app right from the poker site and start playing. Otherwise you can download the iPhone app from the App Store and Android app from Android market.
Safety and Payments
Playing on a big-brand site like WSOP USA means you can count on it being a stable entity. That's very much the case with WSOP.com NJ and NV. As the online entity of Caesars Entertainment, you know you're dealing with a gambling industry megacorp. Meaning they have gone through all of the legal bells and whistles to ensure fair play and financial integrity.
As a result you can count on reliable, fast WSOP.com withdrawals and deposits. And an actual human being to speak to if things don't go quite as smoothly as you would like. You can use many payment methods, including Visa, Mastercard and Paypal. Or even stop by a 7-11 to pay upfront.
As part of the safe and responsible gaming experience you can also pre-set your gaming session and betting limits in 3 ways: Time Limits (total session duration limit) Deposit Limits (total daily deposit amount) Loss Limit (maximum loss per day) You can also self-exclude yourself from either the online and land-based casino for 1 year, 5 years and permanently.
You would love to play WSOP.com poker with the bizarre, loose and terrible plays we’ve seen there. Featuring a number of beginners willing to see a flop with any two cards - making games fun and profitable. Of course, this is because there are a lot of tourists in Vegas who hop onto WSOP NV for some fun.
Yet, best to stick to the micro-to-medium stakes if you’re looking for soft games at WSOP NJ and NV. Because the average player is tougher nowadays, and there may even be grinders who stuck around New Jersey and Nevada after Black Friday.
Then, there are the higher levels which, although not usually populated, have some very good players. Of course, they’re absolutely flooded with pros in the summertime as they compete for bracelets. So you'll have to be extra cautious at the upper stakes.
With the merging of the player pools for WSOP.com NV, New Jersey and DE, the overall talent has improved. The primary focus for most grinders is to get a WSOP seat or package on the cheap. Or to win a huge guarantee tourney that comes with a WSOPC ring or bracelet. We suggest you avoid those events to remain in the softer fields.
