888.com Invites Poker and Shane Warne Fans to the WSOP

888.com, one of the world’s leading gaming and entertainment companies, in a special collaboration with cricket legend, Shane Warne, gave fans and eight of their friends the chance of a lifetime – to play in their own home against Shane Warne in the 888 Poker Ultimate Home Game tournament.

The lucky winner was Nathan Perry from Woy Woy, a small town on the New South Wales Coast in Australia. The game was played in his home on a professional poker table with his friends, a waitress who served them pizza and beer and of course, Shane Warne.

Shane Warne, as captain of the 888 Poker Australian Poker Team, will also compete at the 2008 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, the 888 UK Poker Open and other tournaments.

Players have an amazing chance to make two dreams come true: play poker with Shane Warne and play at the World Series of Poker. The winner of this special promotion will fly with Shane Warne and the 888 Poker team to Las Vegas, stay at a 5-star hotel, get $2,000 in spending money and play at the WSOP Main Event.

To win this one-of-a-kind package, players can enter daily Shane Warne WSOP freerolls and qualifiers, with the Grand Final taking place on June 14.

888.com’s Marketing Director, Matt Robinson, said that 888 Poker is giving Shane Warne and poker enthusiasts a unique experience.

“888.com’s Ultimate Home Game online poker tournaments became very popular in Australia, attracting poker and Shane Warne fans from across the country,” said Robinson. “We want to give them the thrill of a life time and play with Shane Warne at the 2008 WSOP.”
