Tuesday July 16,2013 : OCTOBER DATE FOR NEW NEVADA ONLINE POKER CONTENDER?
WSOP.com real-money promo suggests the action will be available in October
Caesar's Interactive Entertainment's Nevada-legal online poker operation, WSOP.com, could be in action for real-money play in October 2013, a just-announced promotion suggests.
Hitherto, CIE spokesmen have been cautious on identifying a commencement date for real-money poker, saying only that it would be later this (northern hemisphere) summer.
The promotion is detailed at http://www.wsop.com/promotions/100k.asp and announces:
"It's almost time to play legal, real money online poker in Nevada on WSOP.com. To celebrate, a mega cash tournament has been organized, and you're invited!
"Starting October 25, 2013 and running through November 2, 2013, the WSOP.com Online Championships will take place. A whopping $500,000 in added prize money will be available, including a special $100,000 Freeroll to kick off the series.
"The $100,000 Freeroll will be available only to those who register and verify their WSOP.com account by August 31, 2013, and it will take place October 25 at 7 p.m. Las Vegas time."
