PokerStars launches betting market for online WCOOP event

18 September 2015

Amaya-owned PokerStars has announced that it is to take bets on the winner of the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) $51,000 Super High Roller event.

Due to take place from September 20-21, the event has a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million (€875,600) as well as a buy-in of $51,000, the biggest ever for an online poker event.

Through its sports betting service, PokerStars will this year for the first time offer customers the chance to place bets on the winner of the event.

The betting market will remain open until the official start time of the event, which is 12:30 ET on September 20.

No bets will be taken until the end of day one, but the market will be updated and opened again before the start of day two.

Stephen Fisk, managing director of sports betting at PokerStars, said: “We’re excited to offer customers the opportunity to bet on online poker tournaments for the first time and the WCOOP $51,000 Super High Roller event is the perfect place to start.

“It’s already the most talked about online tournament of the year, and with the added spice that having a bet on it brings, fans and players from around the world can rail their favourite player and win money even if they don’t have a spare $51k lying around.”
