Promos Scheduled for Tri-State Shared Online Poker
In less than one week, tri-state online poker liquidity in the United States will become a reality. The launch is set for May 1, when online poker players from New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware will be able to play on the same platform. They will share cash game tables and tournament pools, all in the name of increasing the scope and appeal of the new regulated US internet poker market.
The catch is that only one site is qualified to offer services in all three states. WSOP/888poker is the sole site offered in Nevada and Delaware, which means it is the only option for online poker liquidity on the three-state network.
NV/NJ: The big news is here! @WSOPcom is planning to launch interstate play for online poker beginning May 1. A lot of exciting things are coming.

Even so, WSOP has announced quite a few promotions for tri-state players in what it’s advertising as the “$15 Million Summer.”
In total, there will be tournaments with $15 million in cumulative prize pools scheduled from May 1 through the end of September. Included in that are numerous guaranteed events that players can count on each week:
–Sunday majors: $320 buy-in each Sunday evening with $100K guaranteed
–Sunday minors: $250K in guarantees in each Sunday lineup
–Dailies: Minimum of $10K in daily guarantees
–Special dailies: Some daily guarantees set for $25K with one $50K each month
–Daily freerolls: Freerolls offered each day for entries to Sunday $100K
–Bracelet freerolls: Daily freerolls May 1-14 for seats into WSOP online bracelet Event 10
–WSOP satellites: Daily satellites May 1 to July 13 for seats to live WSOP events
Separate from the above guarantees and satellites, there will be one massive guaranteed event for WSOP Main Event seats. On July 1, there will be a 25 Seat Scramble with, obviously, 25 seats guaranteed, each worth $10,000.
In addition, Blast Poker will be available for Nevada and Delaware players only, as New Jersey has not authorized the games. The lottery-style sit-n-go tournaments offer a range of buy-ins and the chance to play for a prize pool of 10,000-times the buy-in. The Hold’em SNGs are four-handed and played with a super-turbo structure. When players begin, the Blast timer begins and increases the prize pool multiplier along the way. When the time stops, players go all in to determine the winner.

As players sign up for their new accounts on the tri-state network, they will be enrolled in the new player loyalty program. Poker Rewards will award up to 32% rakeback, which will be calculated based on points as follows:
–Player Level: 0-199 points ($0-$99 rake) = 0% rakeback
–Bronze Level: 200-749 points ($100-$324 rake) = 8% rakeback
–Silver Level: 750-1499 points ($325-$749 rake) = 20% rakeback
–Elite Level: 1500-19,999 points ($750-$9,999 rake) = 25% rakeback
–Champions Club: 20,000+ points ($10,000+ rake) = 32% rakeback
The Champions Club level will accumulate annually, while all others will reset monthly.

Players in Nevada and Delaware will need to download the new software on or after May 1 when it is available, and they must create new accounts. Meanwhile, New Jersey players will only have to update their software. Of course, new players in any state will have to download the software and create a new account.
Anyone located within the borders of the three states – or planning to be, even as a visitor – can pre-register for the new account this week. And all Nevada players who pre-register will automatically be entered in a drawing for a WSOP Main Event seat worth $10K.
NV: Pre-Register today for your new @WSOPcom account and be ready for interstate-play on May 1. As a bonus for pre-registering, we will enter you in a drawing for a $10,000 WSOP Main Event Seat. https://t.co/fIXKPVpFx1. Questions?
