888poker Back as Major WSOP Sponsor, Official Online Satellite Site

sponsor official

Joe McKeehen was one of 128 players last year who wore the 888 patch in the WSOP main event, and he’s still wearing the black and blue of the second largest online poker room in the world.

With that kind of success it's no surprise then that 888poker will be a leading sponsor of the WSOP again in 2016.

In fact 888poker will be the only poker room to run official satellites for seats in this year's Series as the de facto brand name of the WSOP.

To play in the greatest poker tournament on the planet you can make your way through the steps system on 888poker.

Black and blue and lots of green.

The lower you start, the longer the road of course. But you can start at any level you like and there is one for all bankroll levels.

If you start at the bottom it’s only 1c to play with six steps to play to secure your main event ticket.

In case you think that’s not possible, look no further than Thomas Yates. Not only is he lucky enough to live on the Greek island of Rhodes, he also fought through all the steps last year starting at only one cent.

He eventually won a complete WSOP main event package, flew out to Vegas and finished in the money for almost $20,000.

What’s the life ROI for that?

Crazy Eights $888,888 Guarantee

Last year 888poker sent 128 players to the main event, of which one actually won it – Joe McKeehen.

This year there will be a gold bracelet tournament at the WSOP that’s directly connected to 888poker.

The name of the poker room is not included but it’s an $888 buy-in event called Crazy Eights 8-Handed with a guaranteed $888,888 to the winner.

The 888poker brand will be prominent throughout the ESPN broadcasts of the WSOP main event but also across all other final table streams.

On top of that 888poker will support channels that show the WSOP on TV in most of the important markets outside the US.

“888 is an important part of the WSOP family, both domestically and around the globe,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart.


“We applaud 888’s commitment to market the game with unique offers and incentives around the biggest poker festival on the planet, and hope many online qualifiers have their dreams dealt in Las Vegas.”
