Thursday March 28,2013 : 88POKER TO PROVIDE LIVESTREAM COVERAGE FOR MAJOR TOURNAMENTS
Partnership with Caesars Entertainment includes live streaming of World Series of Poker tourneys
The 888 group has extended its already strong business ties with Caesars Entertainment in a new agreement that will see 888Poker become the primary sponsor of live stream coverage on the upcoming 2013 WSOP Asia Pacific and WSOP tournaments.
The live streaming will be shown at www.888poker.tv, www.wsop.com, and on the website of second sponsor PokerListings.com.
The latter will provide live updates from all five of the WSOP APAC bracelet events, the Caesars Cup and the $50,000 High Roller as well as WSOP Europe in Paris between October 11-24, 2013.
888poker.com will be running online satellite events for both the WSOP APAC and the WSOP Europe.
Gareth Edwards, a director of 888poker, said: “This is a great fit on several different levels. PokerListings is a major global poker brand in its own right with sites in 11 languages and a long history of tournament reporting back to the 2005 WSOP Main Event.
“That kind of breadth and knowledge is irreplaceable in poker. And the team they’ve put together for this event has an extensive history with both the game’s superstars and the local players.”
