Business News

Evoke plc, one of the world’s leading betting and gaming companies, is pleased to announce the expansion of its enhanced Poker 8 platform to WSOP.com players in Nevada and New Jersey.

This roll-out will enable players in these states to benefit from the same superior game-play experiences that players in Michigan are already enjoying while adding players from the Great Lakes State to the WSOP.com interstate poker pool for the first time.

Poker 8 is evoke’s award-winning platform developed following extensive player feedback. The poker software delivers superior in-game graphics, smoother gameplay on desktops, laptops, and mobile phones (iOS & Android), quicker loading times, and exceptional overall player functionality compared to legacy poker platforms. It is a generational upgrade in evoke’s technology, including a robust Player Account Management (PAM) system, integrated Customer Relationship Management (CRM) functionality, and exceptional iGaming to complement the poker experience. US partners of evoke’s B2B platform can provide their customers with these products and an extensive library of 175+ proprietary casino games from evoke’s in-house games studio, Section 8, including multiple types of progressive jackpots.

As a result of the platform roll-out across Michigan, New Jersey and Nevada, WSOP.com players will be able to enjoy highly popular poker features such as Progressive Knockouts, Mystery Bounties, and the ability to play multiple concurrent Texas Hold’em and Omaha cash games and tournament tables seamlessly on their mobile apps.

The increased network liquidity is set to further enhance WSOP.com table availability, increasing the depth and breadth of both tournaments and cash games 24/7/365, while bringing a step change to the substantial prize pools awarded to date. It also marks an important milestone in Evoke and Caesar’s relationship. Since 2013, evoke has powered WSOP.com and supported it with high-quality, value-added services and software to help Caesars create and maintain its industry-leading position.

Jeffrey Haas, Chief Growth Officer at evoke, commented: “With a relentless focus on customer experience, our poker proposition has continually evolved and pushed the boundaries for online poker players globally for more than two decades. The latest poker platform upgrade in America will deliver superior gameplay experiences for players in Michigan, New Jersey and Nevada. We look forward to working with our partners at the World Series of Poker to leverage this technology to substantially enrich their customers’ online poker experience. Poker is a game of liquidity and network effects, and our Poker 8 upgrade will be a catalyst for expansion.”

Ty Stewart, Executive Director – World Series of Poker, said: “It’s a monumental day to bring this new product to market in time for the 2024 World Series of Poker. While we will always strive to offer the biggest tournaments in the industry year-round, this is the time when players can enjoy exclusive satellites, promo.
