Poker players in Pennsylvania will now be able to compete for gold bracelets next month after the WSOP.com announced an exclusive bracelet series for PA which will run from August 8-15, coinciding with the ongoing 2021 WSOP Online Bracelet festival.
WSOP.com went live in the Keystone state on July 12 and is now on full-scale launch, following a three-day trial period. Initial speculations were that the site would not run an online bracelet series in PA this year, as it wouldn’t have enough time to prepare for such an event.
Now, players can celebrate as they can look forward to eight bracelet events running daily from August 8 to 15, headlined by a $1,000 NLH PA Championship. Buy-ins begin at $400, and for the first time ever, WSOP will award a PKO bracelet.
Pennsylvania Bracelet Series Schedule
The series kicks off with the $500 NLH Keystone Kickoff on August 8, and most of the events feature buy-ins within the $400-$600 range, including a pair of PKO tournaments which will run on August 9 and 13. There’s something in store for high-stakes fans as well, with a $3,200 NLH High Roller taking place on August 10.
Players may also take part in the $777 NLH Lucky 7’s on August 12, and in the $600 NLH MonsterStack on August 14. The festival will culminate in the $1,000 NLH PA Championship taking place on the final day of the series, August 15.
All of the events will start at 5:30 p.m. EST.
To be able to participate in the series, players must be within Pennsylvania for the duration of the festival and must have a separate WSOP PA account. There’s a cage available inside Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack where players can deposit and withdraw their money.
Promotions for New Players
To celebrate its launch, WSOP PA is offering a nice Welcome Package for players creating an account with the site. The perks include $50 in free play, plus 100% match bonus up to $1,000. In addition to that, players will also be awarded with 7 freeroll tickets. They only need to make a deposit of at least $10 to avail of these exciting offers.
That’s not all – those making their first deposit by August 15 will also be given the opportunity to take part in an exclusive $50,000 Depositors Freeroll which will take place on August 22, where three WSOP Main Event seats will be up for grabs. The first two seats will go to the winner and the runner-up finisher, while a third ticket will be given away via random selection.
Throughout the summer, WSOP PA will host a range of special events and tournaments on a daily basis, including BLAST Poker, a fast-paced three-handed Sit & Go game where players can win a maximum of 10,000x their buy-in a matter of minutes. On top of that, WSOP PA is running a special $215 buy-in, $75,000 GTD weekly tournament taking place every Sunday at 4 p.m.
PA players will also get the opportunity to win their way into the live WSOP Main Event at The Rio in Las Vegas for a fraction of the price, via satellites running on WSOP PA. Buy-ins start at $1.
WSOP.com – Strong Competitor in PA
Ty Stewart, SVP of the WSOP said they are thrilled to finally launch their operations in the Keystone State, adding that the real winners in the expansion are the players signing up on WSOP PA. Stewart said the site is focused on providing the best value to players by running the best promotions and offers, as well as hosting world-class tournaments.
Pennsylvania now has four active online poker rooms: PokerStars, BetMGM, Borgata, and WSOP.com. Figures for May show that PokerStars is holding the vast majority of the market, but that could change soon with the recent entrance of WSOP.com. The Caesars-owned online poker site will also expand to Michigan this year, and is also eyeing a launch in both West Virginia and Connecticut.
