This week, a new poker collaboration was announced as GGPoker is now the official partner of Triton Poker live events. The sponsorship will begin next month with the Triton Poker Cyprus event, a special edition tournament running from April 2-7.
Details of the Partnership
Triton Poker is making its return to the poker world with the special edition event this April, with the Merit Crystal Cove Resort & Casino set to play host in North Cyprus. The series will feature several gaming options across six days including no-limit hold’em, short deck ante, and more.
With GGPoker now on board as a partner, the two brands will be able to collaborate via live events such as the Triton Poker Series. GGPoker can utilize its online platform and provide members with options for earning seats to Triton events via exclusive online satellites.
GGPoker Director of Sponsorships & Live Events, John Scanlon, commented on the new partnership by stating: “Since its inception, the Triton Series has striven to bring live poker to the next level. It’s not just about the size of the buy-ins or the big-name players, but the quality of production and level of engagement it receives from the poker community. This partnership is the perfect synergy between two brands aligned with a common goal to bring poker to the masses through premium product offerings.”
Triton Poker Series CEO Andy Wong also commented, stating the poker brand is thrilled to be working with its new premier partner. Wong pointed out that GGPoker brings experience as well as its reputation for developing quality features and games.
GGPoker Heads to Canada with WSOP
Along with its new partnership in Cyprus with Triton, GGPoker is also setting up shop in Canada. The brand announced just a few days ago that it is working with the World Series of Poker (WSOP) to bring a branded WSOP site to Ontario, Canada. The site just needs to be approved by iGaming Ontario to launch.
It is expected that the new WSOP.ca site will be live by April. The new platform will use software supplied by GGPoker and provide players with an opportunity to compete in WSOP events. Online events will be offered along with satellites for major land-based events.
Ontario members of the WSOP site can also take advantage of the Caesars Rewards program with premium perks including hotel stays and gaming. Any online gameplay earns points which can then be redeemed for items inside the venues operated by Caesars Entertainment.
