Online poker players in Michigan woke up on Monday to a new platform option with the launch of WSOP.com. The state became the site’s fourth state, making it the biggest US operator in terms of markets served.

So far, the launch has received mostly high marks among players in the Wolverine State. Many players expressed satisfaction with the download process and said that the gameplay was smooth.

USPoker spoke with several players on Tuesday to get their opinions on the launch overall.

WSOP.com earning nice reviews

In Michigan, players will find a ringed-in poker environment that includes WSOP.com as of now. Company officials have big plans in the state however.

Players can expect online bracelet events as seen in other states. A WSOP Circuit series is also planned for April 20 – May 1 with 12 championship rings on the line.

Christopher Vallimont booked a nice tournament win on Monday.

Now that Michigan players have the official online option of the World Series of Poker, several expressed that they enjoyed the launch so far. Christopher Vallimont lives in the city of Novi and works in landscaping.

The 30-year-old jumped in the action on the first day and played mostly No Limit Hold’em multi-table tournaments on his laptop. He even took the top spot for $1,600 in a $55 tournament with $5,000 guaranteed.

Beyond his own success, he’s been pleased with the platform so far. He found the site user friendly and aesthetically pleasing. Vallimont also liked the table and card customization options as well as heads-up play.

The ability to “rabbit hunt” on occasion for what would have been the next card is also nice, Vallimont says. Some free cash and playing with 2013 WSOP Main Event champion Joe Cada also proved some nice added bonuses.

“There were super fat overlays, which Cada said was designed on purpose,” Vallimont says. “I even knocked him out of a tournament yesterday. I thought that was pretty cool for us lower-stake players. Download and setup was super easy and I had zero issues.”

Plenty of gift drops and more

Other players echoed some of those comments. Justin Cheney, 23, lives in Bay City and works as a grocery store department manager. He had some initial concerns regarding installation but was able to work through that.

Like others, Cheney was impressed with some freebies players saw throughout the day.

“Download was a little confusing to get to, but I think as they get it set up more it’ll be easier,” he says. “The gift drops stand out the most. They are excellent and WSOP gave out so much free stuff. I was able to play for 45 minutes just on gift drops I got from yesterday alone.”

Tyler Beaver, of Kalamazoo, also complimented the site on all the extras handed out. The 27-year-old small business owner won a $215 tournament ticket via a giveaway.

He played some tournaments as well as some cash games, and was pleased with his experience.

“Download and setup was simple and easy,” he says. “I have only played on my phone so far. The app runs smoothly and the interface is nice. It’s easy to multi-table.

“The one thing I noticed versus PokerStars or MGM, I was never randomly closed out of the app and WSOP never had an issue verifying my location. That’s extremely nice after dealing with those issues on PokerStars and MGM constantly.”

Some drawbacks, but plenty of positives

While many players expressed a smooth setup, the launch didn’t come without a few negatives. Some players complained that the verification process could be difficult and time consuming.

That was a regular complaint among some players in Michigan poker player Facebook groups. Other players didn’t like that there wasn’t a chat box.

Some Mac users also found some frustrations after receiving security errors. That issue can be solved by going into “System Preferences” then “Security and Privacy.” Mac users can then unlock the app and successfully finish installation.

Despite some of those initial concerns however, most players seemed pleased so far.

Allen Clark, 34, lives in Macomb and played for about six hours on Monday. He never experienced any lag issues and echoed the comments of others about using the platform.

“I had no issues downloading the app,” says Clark, who works as a project manager. “It was pretty quick and I got $25 in free play that I ran up to $1,100. I’m just waiting on all my bank documents to upload for my withdrawal.”
