What’s at stake in the WSOP Michigan Online Circuit Series?
A major reason Michigan online poker players were excited for the launch of WSOP Michigan was the prestigious events the operator offered, and this is one of those.
The Gold Rings are among the top prizes in online poker, and one will be on the line each night of the series.
A ticket into this summer’s “Tournament of Champions” will also be up for grabs each night. The $1 million freeroll tournament will feature a chance to win a WSOP Gold Bracelet during the 2022 WSOP in Las Vegas, Nevada.
WSOP MI launched on March 28. Along with the prestigious and lucrative events, it’s launch gave hope to online poker players that Michigan would soon be included in the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement along with New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware.
That hope is close to being realized, as the state was accepted into the agreement on April 6. The Michigan Gaming Control Board has since clarified that additional steps need to be taken, but interstate poker looks to be on its way relatively soon.
