Ace the Race is just the latest in a series of well-received promotions from 888poker, including the Card Strike feature implemented last year. In a recent interview, Poker Industry PRO caught up with the VP Head of Poker at 888, Amit Berkovich, who spoke a bit about the ecology of promotions at the operator.
Touting responsiveness as a key feature, Berkovich suggested that “the most successful operators will be the ones that react quickly to industry changes and trends and manage to adapt and innovate accordingly.” He added that active engagement with feedback is necessary for any operator.
“At 888 we very much appreciate user feedback and we receive it from multiple sources: our Customer Support department, forums, Discord, Reddit and also via our own 888poker ambassadors and streamers who are very much involved in the poker community and regularly communicate to us any relevant feedback.” This is the approach that led to the Ace the Race, as well as the aforementioned Card Strike and the well-received Micro-Rollers, a slate of micro-stakes MTT games launched last year.
Ace the Race is just the latest in a long line of unique promotional offerings from 888poker. Buckle up your seatbelt and take your shot at the $300k guaranteed before the checkered flag comes down on Apr 28.
