World Series of Poker watchers won’t be seeing the logo for daily fantasy sports site DraftKings when the tournament returns to Las Vegas starting Nov. 8.

A

spokesman for the annual poker contest owned by Caesars Entertainment Corp. confirmed DraftKings asked that its logo be removed from the poker table felt and on-stage signage during the event’s final matchup.

The request comes after Nevada regulators determined daily fantasy sports sites constitute gambling and ordered them out until the businesses obtain a gambling license.

DraftKings has been a year-long sponsor for the tournament including sponsoring one of the 68 events in the series.

The three-day final face-off between nine remaining poker players vying for $7.7 million starts Nov. 8. It’s being broadcast by ESPN which has an advertising partnership with DraftKings.
