NBCSports.com, Zen Gaming Ante Up
NBCSports.com will use Zen Gaming’s software platform to relaunch its online Poker Room Sunday. The NBCSports.com Poker Room is free-of-charge and offers the chance to win cash, prizes, NBCsports.com gear and a grand-prize package that includes a seat and $20,000 buy-in to the 2010 National HeadsUp Poker Championships, to be held in March 2010 at Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
Poker Productions—which provides executive-production services for the National HeadsUp Poker Championships and NBC’s Poker After Dark—chose Zen Gaming’s platform under a continuing agreement with NBCsports.com.
More than 12,000 players have already registered despite the fact that the Poker Room has yet to launch.
