Fantasy Poker Manager Partners With World Series of Poker

Fantasy Sports and gambling have merged, as we have seen with Atlantic City casinos announcing last month they will begin to take action on Fantasy Sports.

Now what about poker?

Some say that is a sport!

The answer came Wednesday with an announcement that Fantasy Poker Manager, owned by Zokay Entertainment, has now partnered with the World Series of Poker to become the official Fantasy Poker site of the WSOP.

"It is an honor for us to be recognized as the exclusive fantasy game of the World Series of Poker," said Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Zokay Entertainment. "We plan to continue our investment into Fantasy Poker Manager to make sure that poker fans get the best fantasy poker experience possible and are completely entertained during this year's WSOP."

"We know that many of our players and WSOP fans love the idea of fantasy poker," said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. "Now they have a great tool on Facebook that lets them compete with other fans around the world."

Fantasy Poker Manager is a Facebook-based, free-to-play social game powered by the Global Poker Index. The game applies fantasy sports-like competition to live poker tournaments, providing a unique opportunity to engage with other users and poker professionals alike.

Fantasy Poker Manager launched in beta less than two months ago and immediately became the most popular fantasy poker game on Facebook, attracting 20,000 users.

Prizes will be offered in the future, however, there are no plans to offer real money rewards.
