Caesars Enters Online Gambling Space With WSOP Website
Caesars Interactive today entered the online gambling space with its World Series of Poker website, "the second fully-legal, pay-to-play poker platform in Nevada." More than 12,000 players "already have signed up." Games on the site include Texas hold 'em, stud and Omaha hi-lo, and offerings include "penny buy-ins and tournaments that cost $1.10 to enter." Players also "will have a chance to compete for a seat in the live WSOP tournament." The Gaming Control Board will be "watching closely for a 30-day trial period to make sure the platform adheres to state regulations" (VEGASINC.com, 9/19).
