GGPoker-powered WSOP.ca Online Poker Site Launches in Ontario
Online poker players in Ontario can now play at WSOP.ca, a venture between the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and GGPoker. The WSOP.ca online poker room is fully regulated by iGaming Ontario, and is available for Ontario-based players to enjoy right now.
Ontarian poker players who used to play online at GGPoker must migrate their accounts to WSOP.ca. They can do this by logging into their GGPoker account and follow the on-screen prompts. The process is simple and only takes a few minutes. Once complete, account balances are automatically converted to Canadian dollars, and any T$, C$, and loyalty points carry across, too.
The new WSOP.ca poker room is only accessible by players that are physically located in Ontario. This means players on WSOP.ca can only play against other Ontarians, much like the other Ontario online poker rooms.
WSOP.ca is powered by GGPoker's industry-leading software, meaning players have access to the intuitive Smart HUD, the in-built staking platform, the live poker replicating card squeeze, EV cashouts, and an array of emojis and throwables to express themselves at the tables.
Players can enjoy exciting No-Limit Hold'em and Pot-Limit Omaha cash games, the lightning-fast Rush & Cash fast-fold games, Spin & Gold jackpot sit & go tournaments, and a wide range of multi-table tournaments, including daily guarantees, High Rollers, Bounty Hunters, and Omaholic events.
Win a WSOP Circuit Ring in the Inaugural WSOP Online Circuit Series
To celebrate the launch of WSOP.ca, Ontario-based poker players can get involved in the inaugural WSOP Online Circuit Series, which gives them the chance to win a coveted WSOP Circuit ring from the comfort of their homes.
The WSOP Online Circuit Series runs from October 1-16 and features dozens of exciting tournaments with buy-ins from $21 up to $525. The $525 buy-in event serves as the Main Event and comes with a whopping $300,000 guaranteed prize pool. Twelve of the events award their champions a coveted gold WSOP Circuit ring on top of what will be a bumper payday.
GGPoker's Global Ambassador and six-time WSOP bracelet winner, Daniel Negreanu, had this to say about the launch of WSOP.ca.
"Growing up in Toronto, I dreamed of playing in the World Series of Poker. Now, 25 years after I moved to Las Vegas to chase WSOP bracelets, you can compete online in WSOP events in Ontario, all running on GGPoker's amazing platform – how cool is that?
Ty Stewart, the WSOP Executive Director, is thrilled to being the WSOP to Ontario's online poker community.
"Canadian poker players have always been a significant portion of the WSOP playing base. We are thrilled to bring the chance for WSOP glory to you. With online bracelets and exclusive qualifiers to the WSOP in Las Vegas, we expect a wave of new WSOP champions from Ontario."
