It appears that Caesar's Interactive Entertainment's real-money online poker operation in Nevada, WSOP (.com), will wait for its launch until October 2013.
According to a recently announced promotion and CIE spokesmen statements, a commencement date for real-money poker is set for later this summer, but no one said exactly when.
Still, what can be learned from the promo sounds promising: "It's almost time to play legal, real-money online poker in Nevada on WSOP.com. To celebrate, a mega cash tournament has been organized, and you're invited!
"Starting October 25, 2013 and running through November 2, 2013, the WSOP.com Online Championships will take place. A whopping $500,000 in added prize money will be available, including a special $100,000 Freeroll to kick off the series,” it says, adding:
"The $100,000 Freeroll will be available only to those who register and verify their WSOP.com account by August 31, 2013, and it will take place October 25 at 7 p.m. Las Vegas time."
