South Point Announces Free Online Poker

Owner Michael Gaughan Hopes To Offer Real Money Site After Online Poker Legislation


The South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa has announced that it is launching a free online poker site that will be tied to The Club, the casino’s player loyalty reward system.

Owner Michael Gaughan has said that the move is intended to position the company for real money play should online poker become licensed and regulated in the United States. Gaughan hopes that his forward thinking will put him ahead of other casino operators who have also started looking into online poker since Black Friday.

For now, players can download the software from and start playing for free immediately. To promote their new product, the Casino has announced that they will be giving away weekly seats to the 2012 WSOP Main Event, as well as up to $100,000 each month in cash and prizes.

I agree. I also do not like the way they give points daily and then take them weekly. The leaderboard is a joke, and you can be ranked high with life time points just by logging in everyday and not playing. Also can find no real information about these main event packages other then them saying they have them. In fact I really dont see how they can offer this. Here is a the rules reguarding third party buy-ins by the WSOP.

No third-party registrations will be accepted from online gaming sites conducting business with U.S. residents. For more information regarding third-party entries please contact Daniel Vogel by email at
