The World Series of Poker (WSOP) and GGPoker Network announced that WSOP.ca, an online poker room fully regulated by iGaming Ontario, is now available for use by eligible Ontario-based players, following the successful soft-launch of its award-winning, next-generation software.
In lieu of this announcement, Ontario-based players who have existing GGPoker accounts must transfer their accounts to WSOP.ca and will be prompted to complete an automatic account transfer after logging into their GGPoker account. Once existing GGPoker players are successfully verified and transferred to WSOP.ca, they will have access to all the benefits of new users on the platform.
“Growing up in Toronto, I dreamed of playing in the World Series of Poker,” said six-time WSOP bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker Global Ambassador. “Now, twenty-five 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?”
WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart added: “Canadian poker players have always been a significant portion of the WSOP playing base. We 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 the 6ix.”
