888 Launches US Poker Network Liquidity

Written By: Maya Michaels | May 16, 2018 | Posted In Poker News

One of the world’s most popular online gaming companies, 888 has announced the successful launch of their unique interstate poker network.  This launch means that now players from all three U.S. regulated states can enjoy cash games and tournaments and compete with each other for the first time.

Nevada and Delaware have been sharing poker player liquidity across 888’s interstate network since March 2015 and on 1 May 2018, New Jersey joined the network following the signing of Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement. This interstate network across three U.S. countries allows pooling of players on a single platform which will lead to more customers enjoying poker formats and tournaments when they want. Caesars with WSOP, The Delaware Lottery and the All American Poker Network are 888’s partners in the U.S. and their users can now compete against each other.

This is a huge step forward for Delaware, Nevada and New Jersey whose regulators supported 888 and their passion for poker. 888 hopes to see more states come on board in the future after creating a solid framework for expansion.

“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,” 888 chief executive Itai Frieberger commented the launch.

WSOP.com is thankful for the effort 888 put in making this milestone possible. They reached this huge achievement together with the New Jersey Division of Gaming and Delaware state Lottery because they share the same vision. The fight was long, since the model was established in 2014, but it was worth it. The collaborative effort of three states and 888 made this process expeditious and successful for all parties involved.

“The Delaware Lottery is very pleased to be able to offer Delaware’s online poker players this exciting opportunity to enhance their gaming experience.” said Vernon Kirk, director of the Delaware Lottery. “The Multistate Internet Gaming Agreement has proved to be a great vehicle for allowing its member states to take advantage of such cooperative efforts.”
