Nevada is Nevada’s only licensed and legal poker site. Online poker players in Las Vegas, Reno and other parts of the state may play here. It is operated under Caesars Entertainment through its World Series of Poker brand. 888 powers the software and other aspects of the site.

Launched in September 2013, quickly beat out Ultimate Poker for the top spot in terms of player volume in the Nevada online poker industry. It was the number-one site out of the three licensed Nevada poker sites, and since the failure of the other two sites, it now has a total monopoly in the state.

This monopoly has proved to be an issue with how the site is operated.’s support department is historically based in Antigua, and it has been the subject of many player complaints. is also often unresponsive on its social media accounts to player concerns.

Its software is another problem. There have been no major updates since the site launched in 2013. Major bugs discovered years ago are still not resolved.

Even with these issues, hundreds of players still give action to at any given time. Its poker network connects players in Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware, though players in those other states have options besides Nevada new-player bonus

It is no secret within the online poker industry that has historically awful player support. Nevada players often deal with representatives in Antigua. Issues can go without a good answer for days or sometimes receive no reply at all. Most social media questions and comments are ignored by employees.

There are complaints of phone calls and live chats also going without an answer. Players that have issues at this site may be forced to quit playing due to issues being impossible to resolve.

However, within the last year, WSOP seems to be getting better. There are fewer support and withdrawal complaints. deposit options

Withdrawals are processed through cash at Caesars Palace, Harrah’s, and Paris Las Vegas, bank wire, electronic check, and PayPal.
