WSOP Becomes Online Gaming Partner of New York Rangers
The World Series of Poker has signed a deal to become the official online gaming partner of the ice hockey team the New York Rangers.
The deal means that Caesars (the owners of the WSOP) will promote the partnership by automatically entering all New Jersey players that make a deposit on the WSOP.com website into a prize draw which gives them the chance to win prizes such as match tickets, team jerseys and a home visit from a former Rangers player.
CIE vice president of marketing and Brand Michael Staskin said, “We look forward to being part of the stretch run and educating tri-state area Rangers fans on this exciting new offering available to both residents and visitors in New Jersey.”
David Howard, president of MSG Sports, said, “We are excited to have the Rangers partner with this brand new category and industry leader WSOP.com to provide our passionate and loyal fans the opportunity to win some very unique experiences and prizes.”
The Rangers and WSOP.com also hosted a viewing party in Hoboken for the March 26th game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
