On the rail – 888 partners up with WSOP
2017 will be the third straight year with 888poker as a partner to the World Series of Poker held in Las Vegas. 888poker will be the exclusive online provider for WSOP qualifier satellites and promotions.
The recent deal covers 2017 and 2018 with an option for two more years.
Last summer 888poker sent a whopping 250 player to the WSOP Main Event through their online satellites, and they plan to send even more this year.
And you can in fact qualify for as little as $0.01 if you are lucky enough to go all the way through the step qualifiers.
WSOP Executive director Ty Stewart had this to say about 888poker: “We’ve seen 888poker really up the stakes in the past few years, with a refreshing new online and offline approach which aims to give the power back to the players, this shared vision and love of the game means it’s a natural partnership for both our brands. I believe this mutually beneficial approach will continue to enhance our user experience and wish our players the best of luck in the tournament!”
