As reported by the hand that feeds us, pokerfuse, newly legalized and regulated online poker site in New Jersey, partypoker, looks to score big through a new partnership with two professional U.S. sports teams.
The New Jersey Devils (NHL) and the Philadelphia 76ers (NBA), both owned by one Joshua Harris, will be announcing a union with partypoker that will have the online site ponying up sponsorship cash in exchange for a barrage of promotions for you, the fan. Of course there’s going to be signage and TV spots, but there could also be a whole host of other goodies: tickets, signed merch, sitting in suites, meet and greets…who knows?!
Well, actually, they probably know and they’ll be making a formal announcement about what they know at 4pm EST.
Harris is also throwing in the Prudential Center as well, so let’s say an artist that poker players would be interested in seeing comes to town, like say Justin Bieber or Melissa Ethridge, you might be able to score non-sports related prizes as well.
So, keep an eye out New Jersey, partypoker is looking to claim more than it’s fair share of the market and is getting aggressive about it.
