Can I Play on WSOP for Real Money From My State?

WSOP.com is now advertising heavily on national television.  Their website is free to use and, as such, is available everywhere in the US.  There are very few states, however, that allow for real money play.  There are real money options in states where WSOP is limited.  Americas Cardroom is available in all but New Jersey (you can play real money online poker with WSOP in the Garden State).  The tournaments at Americas Cardroom are amazing (routinely offering $1 million first place prizes) and the bonuses are quite generous.

"Our promise to deliver a bigger and better Venom every time continues with our largest Venom in history," the Americas Cardroom site proclaimed in December 2020.

They were offering an $8 million Venom to begin January 22, 2020. 

First place gets $1 million, guaranteed. And no matter where you finish, you’re guaranteed an unforgettable online poker experience.

By contrast, WSOP.com over $250,000 in guarantees on Sunday, featuring their $100k Sunday tournament.  Don't get us wrong, these are worthwhile to enter when one considers the limited pool of players (New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada only).

There isn't much of an appetite to allow for stateside licensing of Internet poker rooms.

The free site allows individuals to win WSOP bracelets and rings.  With the World Series of Poker going live again in 2021, we're assuming there will also be plenty of satellite tournaments for free entry into the Main Event.
