Zokay Entertainment (parent company of the Global Poker Index) and World Series of Poker entered into an agreement earlier this week that makes Fantasy Poker Manager the official Fantasy game of WSOP for the next 3 years.
As the tradition goes, each summer poker players from across the globe get together for the WSOP and buy into a $25,000 fantasy poker game. Now this process will be done through the Fantasy Poker game which was launched in beta form on Facebook in January 2013. Currently the game features a huge chunk of the top 300 poker players ranked in the GPI and is the most used fantasy poker application.
As part of the deal, the top 300 ranked poker players by GPI will be receiving special benefits in WSOP; none of which have been disclosed. Not only players, poker fans globally can also form their fantasy poker team and compete against each other.
