888 Launches New Twitch Channel

Written By: Maya Michaels | April 28, 2021 | Posted In Poker News

888poker is continuing its refurbishment with the online poker brand’s announcing the launch of a brand new Twitch.TV channel titled 888pokerTV.

The channel will be streaming online events, live commentaries, and various other poker content. Promoting the service under its brand slogan “Made To Play”, the channel will give players 24/7 access to poker content.

888pokerTV went live on Sunday, April 18, streaming the opening event of the WPTDeepStacks London Online Series (WPTDS). Nick Wealthall and David Tuchman provided commentary on the curtain raiser, which fell just shy of its guarantee, attracting 357 entries.

This resulted in a $21,500 overlay for the tournament, which was won by a player with the moniker i2out. The Latvian took home $40,540 for their efforts, after eight and a half hours of play.

There will be further coverage of the WPTDS as the series goes on, featuring various poker pros and personalities. During the streams, 888pokerTV will be giving away cash and tournament tickets—including entries to the WPTDS $1050 Main Event.

There will also be special freeroll tournaments on 888poker, to coincide with the WPTDS streams.

The WPTDS Marathon will be streaming live on 888pokerTV on April 22 with coverage of the Main Event on April 26

After the WPTDS ends, 888pokerTV has plenty more lined up. According to the 888 website, fans of the Twitch channel can expect:

  • Round-the-clock poker action
  • Online events
  • Live commentaries
  • Poker pro guests
  • Original poker content
  • Replays of live events
  • Strategy
  • Interviews
  • Freerolls and giveaways

In addition to this latest venture, the operator continues with the roll-out of its Poker8 software, optimized for the burgeoning mobile market and currently being promoted globally.

The operator has also recently extended its partnership with WSOP. As the software provider for WSOP’s online poker room, 888 enjoys the only shared liquidity pool in the US. Its imminent launch in Pennsylvania under WSOP PA will further boost its profile there, no doubt with the intention of adding the Keystone State to that pool in the future.
