The World Series of Poker® (WSOP) and GGPoker Network today announce that WSOP.CA, a fully-regulated online poker room, will open its doors to Ontario-based players in early April, subject to the successful execution of an operating agreement with iGaming Ontario.
WSOP.CA will offer players access to exclusive WSOP tournaments and satellites, all running on its award-winning, next-generation software.
Players will be welcomed to the poker room through a range of launch promotions and bonuses. Additionally, WSOP.CA players will automatically become enrolled in the legendary Caesars Rewards loyalty program, which is the largest customer loyalty program in the entertainment-hospitality industry, bar-none. Members benefit from unbeatable hotel, food & beverage, entertainment and gaming opportunities at Caesars destinations across North America and unique sports experiences.
“As a proud Ontario native, I’m thrilled that poker’s two greatest brands have come together to launch WSOP.CA and offer the Ontario poker community the perfect place to play online,” said Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker Global Ambassador. “You’ll be seeing exclusive WSOP rewards and tournaments, running on GGPoker’s amazing app - what’s not to love about that?”
“This partnership combines the best poker brand with the top poker software, and we’re thrilled to launch this online poker room for Ontario players,” WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart added, “We look forward to seeing Ontarians qualify for the live WSOP in Las Vegas this summer and challenge native son Daniel Negreanu for a gold bracelet.”
Existing GGPoker players based in Ontario can transfer their accounts to WSOP.CA once the new poker room is launched. To do so, a player must log into their GGPoker account, where they will be prompted to consent to an automatic account transfer and download a software update. Players transferring their account to WSOP.CA will benefit from all of the launch promotions and bonuses as those creating a brand new account.
