888Poker To Power Interstate Online Poker Network

It was just a few months ago that Delaware and Nevada came to an agreement to combine player pools for online game play to ensure a more competitive marketplace. The two states are small in population and need the numbers that a combined player pool can provide. The interstate compact is expected to begin this year and now 888 Holdings has been named as the provider of the poker network for the multi-state option.

In the current market, 888 is the provider of network software for specific Delaware and Nevada gaming sites. The company powers all three gaming sites in Delaware and Nevada has 888 has a provider for the WSOP site. A new site in Nevada is also expected to launch for Treasure Island and 888 will be powering this site as well. 888 will be running all six sites which will then be hosted on the new network provided by the same company.

The new 888 network is titled All American Poker Network and based on a recent press release, the new network aims to deploy a shared poker network across the two states that will offer players in each state an enhanced experience when it comes to online poker. The All American Poker Network already operates in New Jersey and 888 Poker New Jersey is currently the only room on the network.

Poker players in the US have been watching the partnership in Delaware and Nevada grow and the interstate state options will bring a new aspect to the online gaming market in the states. Other states that pass legislation for online poker have the option of joining the network and it will be interesting to see over time what happens as interstate poker begins to take shape. Only time will tell if additional states will begin to offer such gaming options as well.
