PokerGO®, the world’s largest poker content company delivering poker’s most premier live events, today announced their partnership with SuperDraft Inc., the daily fantasy partner of Caesars Entertainment, Inc. For the first time, fans of the sport will be able to participate in fantasy poker contests around most major professional tournaments.
“Partnering with SuperDraft will allow poker fans and players alike to participate in brand new fantasy poker offerings, a massive untapped market in the current fantasy sports landscape,” said Brent Hanks, Director of Programming at PokerGO®. “Poker has been long overdue for fantasy sports involvement and SuperDraft is the perfect partner to set it up seamlessly.”
PokerGO® and SuperDraft’s partnership will launch with the U.S. Poker Open on June 3rd, with a free entry contest for a minimum prize pool of $10,000. All PokerGO® subscribers will have the opportunity to enter and win contests on the SuperDraft app for poker’s most premier tournaments including the U.S. Poker Open, Poker Masters, Super High Roller Bowl, World Series Of Poker, and more. While PokerGO will be providing all stats, SuperDraft created a proprietary poker scoring system based on player performance and chip stacks.
“Creating this new fantasy poker product with PokerGO® enables SuperDraft to build on its sports gaming foundation and bring another innovative game to market that is meant to go beyond daily fantasy,” said Steve Wang, Founder and CEO, SuperDraft. “Adding poker into fantasy sports is an idea that we’ve discussed for years. Our innovative development team in partnership with PokerGO® finally brought that idea to life. As the popularity of pro poker grows, this partnership will help us deliver what everyone immersed in the world of poker has been waiting for.”
