Milestone in the market

888 launches interstate poker network in US

888 has confirmed the roll-out of its interstate poker network across Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey. Last month, Caesars Interactive said it was to begin sharing online poker liquidity between the three states via both its WSOP.com and 888Poker.com brands. Now with the new rule of the US Court, it is likely that the market expands to other states.

Delaware and Nevada have been sharing poker liquidity since 2015 and New Jersey will now also join the network. 888, which went live with the expanded service on May 1, is working with WSOP, The Delaware Lottery and the All American Poker Network on the venture.

Itai Frieberger, chief executive of 888, said: “The launch of the 888-powered interstate poker network is another significant milestone for the US igaming market.”

“Poker players across all three regulated states can compete with each other through the 888 unique, proprietary platform. This is great news for customers and our partners and further demonstrates 888’s commitment and unique position in the regulated US online igaming market.”

David Rebuck, director of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, added: “We are pleased for the additional opportunities this agreement provides not only for online poker players in Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware, but also for other states that may want to participate in the future.” Now with the new rule of the US Court, it is likely that the market expands to other states.
