World Series of Poker Goes Live Online
Thanks to its partnership with 888 Holdings, Caesars Entertainment Interactive has launched the World Series of Poker online in Nevada. This is the state’s (and the US’) second legal online poker site.
Caesars is hoping that the use of the WSOP brand will help increase interest in Nevada’s online poker market. Caesars’ CEO, Mitch Garber, said that they will now “bring land-based and online gaming in ways never seen before.”
Garber said that the combination of the WSOP brand and other Caesars programs will draw “today’s technologically savvy consumers”.
For instance, WSOP online will be the only site that gives players the chance to win seats at live WSOP events.
The General Manager of Online Poker for WSOP.com, Geoffrey Stewart, said, “This opens a whole new category for the WSOP brand enabling us to connect with consumers year-round and reach them where they are most today – on digital devices. We have high standards, we know our players do as well, and we believe everyone will be impressed with WSOP.com.”
The site offers a mixture of cash games, Sit & Go’s, Satellites and Multi-table Tournaments.
