Recently we reported that a few Las Vegas and California casinos were planning on opening up some “Free to Play” poker sites for online for USA players which will be totally legal. As of today, South Point Casino has achieved their goal and officially opened their new online poker room to ‘club’ members and will open it up to the rest of the US on Oct. 17th, 2011. The site is completely free and completely legal and even has the approval of the Nevada Gaming Board. South Point Casino is using the Zen Entertainment platform to host their new online poker free playroom, which has in the past hosted sites for the WWE, UFC and NBC Sports when opening up their own brand of free poker sites.
This new poker site for players around the world will carry free tournaments where players can win cash prizes, a diverse selection of tournaments with celebrity sponsors and other manufacturers that wish to bring their brand of causal games to the US market including movie studios and some national brands of casino game companies. When the poker site opens to the US market on Oct. 17th, the site will be promoting tournaments with prize pools worth $100,000’s of dollars each month, plus a chance to win a seat at the $10,000 World Series of Poker Main Event every week!
