“We are delighted to partner with WPTDeepStacks to bring an exciting multi-network series to 888poker players this spring,” 888 Senior Vice President Guy Cohen said in a news release. “These events provide poker players in global markets a great chance to experience the exclusive and prestigious WPTDS’ events online.

“As part of our ‘Made to Play’ approach, players will enjoy the experience of playing our best in class product along with affordable buy-ins and big guarantees to enjoy the highest level of online poker offering.”

Major events across 888poker platforms

The three series offer players the opportunity to compete for major prize pools and a WPTDeepStacks title. The concurrent festivals mark the first time 888’s three networks are synced playing a major series.

The festivals also offer players a chance to check out the new 888poker “Made to Play” software platform. Tour events feature lower buy-ins, large prize pools, and a shot at a prestigious tour title.

 “The World Poker Tour’s online presence continues to grow and these three concurrent series mark further expansion of the WPTDeepStacks brand,” WPT CEO Adam Pliska said.

The $1,050 buy-in London version has players competing for more than $2 million in guaranteed prizes. That includes a $1 million main event.

The WPTDS Iberia and Italy main events feature single starting flights on April 25 with a €125 buy-in and €150,000 guarantees.

The Iberia main event comes with a guarantee of €400,000 and the Italian series with €350,000. Each network will feature 16 events and all 48 winners receive a WPTDeepStacks trophy.
