Can I make enough money? Is the online player pool large enough? Are there enough games running to make it worth my while?
If for some reason you are on the fence, here are 10 reasons to play online poker at WSOP.com in 2018.
Reason #1: It’s the only online poker room in Nevada that has the player pool to make it worth your while.
Need we say more? Okay, then. Keep reading.
Playing online can also help boost your bankroll pretty quickly.
Here are our next three reasons, and supporting arguments to the main reason, that will not only pad your bottom line but might reward you with a gold bracelet.
Reason #2: The very best deposit bonus
WSOP.com wants to send a warm welcome message to players thinking about signing up for a new account.
Make a deposit and you can claim $10 free plus a 100% bonus match up to $1,000. Nothing like doubling your money right out of the gate.
But that’s not all. After making your first deposit, you’ll receive seven tickets to a daily $100 freeroll held exclusively for new players every night at 7:00 p.m.
They are only valid during your first week, so make sure and mark it on your calendar to avoid missing your chance at earning some free money.
Reason #3: Regular promotions
Don’t take advantage of your welcome bonus and run. Make sure and sign into your account regularly to take advantage of the frequent promotions that WSOP.com runs to keep its existing players happy.
Like every good online poker site, WSOP.com offers regular player promotions that include leaderboard challenges, freerolls, and tournament series to keep playing fun. It’s worth noting, they go way above and beyond what live casinos do for their players.
Reason #4: Satellite tournaments
Everybody dreams of playing one of those big events that are slightly out of reach because of the buy-in. Satellites fuel the poker economy because it allows players without the funds to take a shot at getting into those high buy-in tournaments.
Nobody understands that more than WSOP.com. You’ll regularly find satellites into their marquee events, giving you a shot at the dream. And if you dreaming about gold, keep an eye out for satellites into World Series of Poker bracelet events as we get closer to the summer.
Reason #5: WSOP bracelet events
There is no time like the present to start preparing for the summer grind. And preparation this year means getting your online skills up to snuff.
This summer, the 2018 World Series of Poker has four online bracelet events on its schedule. There is something a little enticing to playing for a gold bracelet from the comfort of your summer residence.
Here is the schedule of online WSOP bracelet events for the 49th annual World Series of Poker:
- June 3rd — $365 WSOP.com ONLINE No-Limit Hold’em
- June 22nd – Event #47: $565 WSOP.com ONLINE Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Handed
- June 29th – Event #61: $1,000 WSOP.com ONLINE No-Limit Hold’em Championship
- June 30th – Event #63: $3,200 WSOP.com ONLINE No-Limit Hold’em High Roller
The real benefits of playing online at wsop.com
Playing where the players are and earning money is great and all, but there some real benefits that help make your life easier while scratching the itch to play.
Reason #6: It’s a come-as-you-are dress code
It’s true that live poker also has a “come as you are” dress code, but are you really going to roll out of bed and drive down to the Strip without putting some real clothes on and brushing your teeth? Probably not.
But you can if you’re playing online. Not that you should. But you can.
Reason #7: You can get a quick game in during your spare time
When you have a limited amount of free time, and a strong urge to play poker, heading to your favorite casino is not always feasible. That’s not a problem when you have an account online. Just sit down, power up and play to get your fix.
Reason #8: It gives you the freedom to try new strategies without judgment
It’s the season of GTO and studying the game. What better way to try out some new stealth moves then to do so from the comfort of your couch without the look of disgust from the other players as you stack their chips.
Reason #9: It’s easy to mute your annoying tablemates
You know the type – annoying, slightly (or more than slightly) inebriated, and an incessant ringing in your ears from all their chatter. Those are the players you want at your table even if it comes at a cost to your sanity. Well, when you play online, you get to keep your sanity while virtually stacking their chips.
Reason #10: Bottoms up
Sure there’s Uber, but no one really wants to leave their car at the casino and have to go back to collect it the next day. So if you want to enjoy a few cocktails while playing a little poker, it only makes sense to play online with your car, and your driving record parked safely in your driveway. The only downside to this is you have to pay for your own liquor.
Off the fence yet? Good. This year is a great year to work on both your live and online play to make sure and capitalize on your opportunities to play poker wherever you are and whenever you can.
Remember, you don’t have to be a resident of Nevada to play — you only have to be in the state. So, if you’re passing through the Silver State, why not go for gold?
