he Super High Roller Bowl kicked off on May 29 at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. And under the terms of 888poker’s latest agreement, the online poker brand would receive a branding exposure all over the event and during the in-show Poker Central broadcasts.
The Super High Roller Bowl will run from May 29 to June 1. As many as 49 entries have paid the $300,000 buy-in in order to enter the event and to contend for the guaranteed first-place prize of $5 million. Apart from the prize money, the big winner will also be awarded the special Super High Roller Bowl champion ring, hand-crafted exclusively for the high roller tournament.
The 888poker branding exposure will also be secured by German poker professional Dominik Nitsche, who is known to be among the poker room’s ambassadors. Kara Scott, who has joined the cluster of popular personalities to be promoting the brand just recently, will host the Super High Roller Bowl. The event will be televised across the CBS Sports and Poker Central networks. Fans will also be able to watch it live on Twitch.
This is not the first important agreement 888poker has signed recently. Last month, it became clear that the poker brand has become the official sponsor for the 47th Annual WSOP, with the world’s most prestigious poker series set to kick off tomorrow, May 31. Under the terms of the agreement, 888poker would receive a broad exposure on the official website of the WSOP and around its live reporting section, dedicated to the upcoming poker festival, to be more precise.
The 888poker logo is now visible to website visitors that are based outside the US. The ESPN coverage of the WSOP $10,000 Main Event would also feature the 888poker brand. As part of the agreement, the online poker room ran a number of satellite events that gave players the opportunity to qualify for various events on the festival’s schedule.
