888Poker

Yaniv Sherman, Senior Vice President and Head of US for 888Poker, sat down for an exclusive interview with PokerFuse Pro to discuss his company's branding plans moving forward.

“We are prioritizing WSOP at this point,” Sherman told PRO. “Naturally, with Caesars being a strategic partner, being a market leader, we want them to be able to capitalize on the opportunity.”

Sherman expects more 888-branded poker rooms in US markets soon as well. When asked if players could expect to see additional 888 launches this year, Sherman said “that’s definitely the plan. If not ’21, then ’22.”
