|In a move to spread more of its poker sunshine across Europe SunPoker.com has just signed a deal to be one of the first poker rooms to be included on the interactive cable channel CNNText. |
The text based information station reaches millions of homes throughout Europe, and allows users to browse the latest news headlines at their convenience. Now located on channel 232 within the CNNText broadcast, they can find the latest happenings, including the listing of Texas Hold 'Em tournaments 24 hours a day, and the most recent promotions at SunPoker.com.
'Poker has become extremely popular because of the television coverage...' says Nick Melrose, Poker Room Manager at SunPoker.com, '...and the decision to expand our exposure in Europe was a pretty simple one, and we felt CNN was the right choice to reach our target audience.'
The SunPoker.com software allows you to play poker and chat with other players from around the world for as little as $0.50/$1.00.
'We realize online poker cannot take the place of being in a live poker room face to face with your opponent, but the thought of winning a quarter of a million dollars while wearing your PJs does have its appeal,' added Melrose, 'and we've just made it easier to find SunPoker.com on CNNText television.'
