WSOP.ca officially launches in Ontario
30 September 2022
(PRESS RELEASE) -- The World Series of Poker and GGPoker
Network today 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.
To ensure Ontarian players have immediate access to the best online poker experience possible, WSOP.ca will host an Ontario WSOP Online Circuit Series, kicking off on Saturday, October 1. The tournament series is headlined by twelve WSOP Ring events, with the winner of each taking home a prestigious WSOP gold ring, along with the lion’s share of the prize pool.
“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?”
“Canadian poker players have always been a significant portion of the WSOP playing base,” WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart added. “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.”
