best players, biggest events, and greatest moments will be showcased”

“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with YouTube and offer the full PokerGO service directly through YouTube TV and Primetime Channels,” said PokerGO president Mori Eskandani. “The expanded deal means that poker’s best players, biggest events, and greatest moments will be showcased to more fans than ever before, and YouTube members who subscribe to the PokerGO channel will enjoy a top-tier viewing experience and unrivaled access to the game of poker.”

The agreement adds to an existing relationship between the entities. PokerGO is aiming to increase the worldwide popularity of poker, and its new distribution arrangement positions it in a place of prominence with the world’s most popular online video hub.

Opportunities for customers

Poker has always been on the periphery of sports networks such as ESPN. The recent surge in the gambling world has helped its popularity rise, though it is still struggling to attract viewership.

viewers will be treated to over 100 days of live-action poker annually

YouTube Primetime channels will sell direct access to various poker events, including the World Series of Poker, PokerGO Tour Majors Super High Roller Bowl, US Poker Open, the PokerGO Cup and Poker Masters. Viewers will be treated to over 100 days of live-action poker annually, along with every season of “High Stakes Poker,” “No Gamble, No Future,” and “High Stakes Duel.”

Anyone looking to consume more poker content can find pieces from PokerGO such as bits of analysis, histories of major events, or replays of famous tournaments.

YouTube primetime subscribers will also get access to a variety of non-poker-related media, including other sports matches, TV shows, and movies from over 30 streaming services.

Company growth

PokerGO launched in 2017 and has grown into a reputable company with a bright future. On top of hosting great events in the world of poker, it is quickly increasing its visibility through moves such as the distribution agreement with YouTube.

PokerGO also partnered with BetMGM earlier this year to put on the BetMGM Poker Championship, the company’s first self-titled poker event, in PokerGO’s Aria Resort & Casino studio in Las Vegas.

Unfortunately, BetMGM canceled the two other tournaments in the PokerGO series in September. Each was supposed to occur at the Venetian Resort.

Fans who are interested in learning more about PokerGO can access on-demand replays, free content, and a schedule of upcoming events on the company’s website. 

PokerGO’s next sponsored event is the PokerGO NFT Invitational, scheduled for Saturday, December 3 at 1pm local time inside the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino.
