The Harrah’s Entertainment owned World Series of Poker moves onto the final table today in the iGaming centre of the universe, London, as the final nine battle it out for one of the coveted bracelets the win will bring, but the entertainment brand has had to go some way to correct certain outlets on their misreporting a certain news item recently. The media, misreporting?! Say it isn’t so!
It involves the company’s tie up with software provider Dragonfish, who have provided the infrastructure behind the WSOP free-play product in the USA, and the paid for version over in old blighty. From here there was a whole minefield of rumours, the main being that Dragonfish and Harrah’s had reached an acrimonious divorce after reports that the flirty fish had been caught hook, line, and sinker with another lover.
This was all wrong, as Harrah’s have gone to quite some length to explain – they’d simply given Dragonfish a free pass for their weekend away in Macau. Knowing how good it was there, Harrah’s didn’t want Dragonfish to also make the big mistakes that they have done in the past, and pass up on what was on offer in the Asian enclave.
