Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Inc. (CIE) and ACTV8.me, together with Insignia Sports & Entertainment, have joined forces to launch a fully interactive companion application to accompany original episodes of World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event telecasts on ESPN.
Beginning Tuesday night, anyone with an iPhone or iPad can download the WSOP-ACTV8 app and participate in the WSOP television program like never before. The app will be available on Android devices in the coming weeks.
Once users download the app, they will get to play along with the other viewers during the broadcast, as well as with professionals on the show. The app will recognize you are watching an original WSOP telecast and will engage you with interactive and social content.
“This app is tailor-made for the poker enthusiast,” said World Series of Poker Executive Director Ty Stewart. “It is a masterpiece of interactive ingenuity that we believe will bring a whole new dimension to viewers watching the WSOP on ESPN.”
