evoke, formerly 888 Holdings, has confirmed the expansion of its enhanced Poker 8 platform to players in Nevada and New Jersey. 

It’s a move that bolsters the igaming experience for WSOP players whilst also expanding the number of states that are embraced by the online poker platform. 

Jeffrey Haas, Chief Growth Officer at evoke, commented: “With a relentless focus on customer experience, our poker proposition has continually evolved and pushed the boundaries for online poker players globally for more than two decades. 

“The latest poker platform upgrade in America will deliver superior gameplay experiences for players in Michigan, New Jersey and Nevada. We look forward to working with our partners at the World Series of Poker to leverage this technology to substantially enrich their customers’ online poker experience. Poker is a game of liquidity and network effects, and our Poker 8 upgrade will be a catalyst for expansion.”

Poker 8 comes off the back of extensive player feedback for evoke and looks to tap into “superior in-game graphics, smoother gameplay and more efficient quicker loading times”.

As a result of the platform roll-out across Michigan, New Jersey and Nevada, players will be able to engage with poker features such as Progressive Knockouts, Mystery Bounties and the ability to play multiple concurrent Texas Hold’em and Omaha cash games and tournament tables seamlessly on their mobile apps.

Ty Stewart, Executive Director – World Series of Poker, added: “It’s a monumental day to bring this new product to market in time for the 2024 World Series of Poker. While we will always strive to offer the biggest tournaments in the industry year-round, this is the time when players can enjoy exclusive satellites, promotions and online bracelet events.”
