The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has finally granted the brand the green light to operate following a successful field trial and approval.

WSOP celebrates its arrival into the Pennsylvania poker scene with a bevy of promotions and bonuses such as special sign-up promotions, newly announced bracelet events and weekly tournaments for the region’s players. 

Of course, the brand also provides poker aficionados a platform to progress their careers with daily satellite buy-ins as low as $1. The winner of this event will get an opportunity to secure his place at The Main Event in Las Vegas.

Online gaming group 888, which supports the poker platform for the WSOP brand, views the expansion as a significant move for the firm.
