iGaming Business – Online gaming operator 888 has confirmed to investors that it is to launch a shared poker network between Delaware and Nevada, two of the three US states that offer forms of regulated internet gambling.

The launch of the new online poker network, which will be known as the All America Poker Network (AAPN), comes after the two states in February signed a first-of-its-kind agreement to allow for shared player liquidity.

While 888 is the monopoly provider in Delaware, the operator’s software is also used by WSOP in Nevada, although 888 is reported to be planning to launch its own online poker room in the future.

The liquidity will be connected with WSOP and the three licensed casinos in Delaware.
