WSOP (World Series of Poker) is now live in Pennsylvania following a successful field trial which made the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approve it.
Pennsylvanian poker players can now play legally on WSOP.com for the first time. WSOP is set to offer more ways to win payouts, weekly tournaments, bracelet events, and special sign-up promos, to players in Pennsylvania to celebrate the new launch. This is on top of live poker tables also available via Evolution which has a live dealer studio in the state.
Also to be included in the promotions are daily satellites featuring low buy-ins ($1) which will enable locals to get an opportunity to earn a seat in Las Vegas at the main event (the most attractive of all poker tournaments) scheduled for this fall.

What Does This New Development Mean?
This implies that the state of Pennsylvania joins New Jersey and Nevada states where WSOP.com online poker is already in operation.

Each tournament recorded about 865,000 dollars on average to make it the largest event series organized in regulated markets in the US. The last winner of the 2020 WSOP went home with a whopping $1,550,969! This is just a little insight on how much players can win during this event.
