By Aidan Williams

888Poker has announced the continuation of its sponsorship of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) for the sixth consecutive year.

The poker series will host players at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, starting from 26 May, and will be broadcast online and on TV via ESPN and PokerGo.

In the build-up to the main event, 888Poker offers poker players from outside the US the opportunity to qualify through its online platform and will host online promotions and campaigns including multi-step satellite tournaments.

Starting on 23 February and ending 14 June, every weekend players will have the chance to win a $15,000 WSOP 2020 package, which includes a $10,000 buy-in to the luxury WSOP main event, an $888 buy-in to the Crazy 8’s side event, travel and accommodation.

The 2019 WSOP had a record 187,298 entries, creating a 50-year high of $293m in prize money.

Guy Cohen, 888 Holdings’ SVP of B2C, said: "We are very excited to be sponsoring the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas for the sixth year running.

"We’re proud to be long-standing partners of WSOP, the biggest and most popular poker series in the world, as part of our commitment to make poker more accessible and exciting for our customers who will be able to qualify for the biggest poker event of the year directly from 888Poker’s online platform."
