PokerStars is taking bets on the result of the WCOOP Super highroller event. It marks the first time the online poker room has opened a betting market on the results of a poker game.
“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,” stated Stephen Fisk, Managing Director of Sports Betting at PokerStars.
PokerStars introduced sports betting in certain European markets earlier this year. Players can place bets on a variety of sporting events from within the client or via the web client.
