GIBRALTAR -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- 888 Holdings PLC (888.L) and Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Inc. (CIE) have entered a sponsorship agreement between 888 Poker and the World Series of Poker.

The new sponsorship will see 888 Poker as a primary sponsor of the upcoming 2013 WSOP Asia Pacific and WSOP Europe TV shows distributed globally. The sponsorship will also include 888 Poker as the live streaming coverage provider for every key event in both tournament series. The live streaming will be shown at http://www.888poker.tv, http://www.wsop.com, and now http://www.PokerListings.com, which has been named as the Official Live Coverage Provider.
