The World Series of Poker announced this week via a press release that 888 is a leading sponsor of the summer tournament series. 888 will now become the exclusive provider of WSOP satellite entries outside of the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Italy, and France.
888 has already started running satellites to this summer’s WSOP. Multi-step satellites start at as little as one penny on its international site. 888 will also have its logo appear prominently during the WSOP, as well as use the live feed from the events to keep its players up-to-date on live chip counts and tournament winners.
“As a true partner with the WSOP on the B2B side where we power their real-money gaming in the United States, this was a logical next step for us to carry the power of the WSOP to our players across all other major markets we serve,” said Senior Vice President and Head of B2C at 888 Holdings, Itai Pazner.
“This broad package gives 888poker players a great opportunity to win their way to WSOP events on our online poker site, plus gives us terrific content and assets to market our brand.”
This is not the first partnership between 888 and WSOP. 888 provides the network platform for WSOP real money poker in the United Kingdom. 888 also provides the software for WSOP.com in Nevada and Delaware. The two companies share some liquidity between their New Jersey online poker rooms and combined player pools between Delaware and Nevada on March 24.
