A Hand In Making A Difference: WSOP App Hosts 72-Hour Online Pokerthon in Partnership with Disabled American Veterans


As hands are dealt, players can join the WSOP free-to-play app to raise funds and awareness for those who have served in honor of National Poker Day.

HERZLIYA, Israel, April 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Playtika, a mobile game powerhouse behind the World Series of Poker free-to-play app (WSOP), is calling on all poker aficionados to make a difference this National Poker Day. During a thrilling 72-hour Pokerthon, WSOP will be donating to DAV (Disabled American Veterans), a charity dedicated to empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity, while app users do what they do best ? play poker.

Starting April 19 and running through April 21, WSOP's in-app online Pokerthon is setting the stakes high with non-stop action, riveting tournaments, and enough thrilling features and game modes to keep things interesting all weekend long. 

During the 72 hours, WSOP players will be able to give back to veterans and all they need to do is join the app and play. WSOP isn't just stacking chips and calling bluffs though; it's about making a difference, which is why it's teamed up with a charity doing amazing work to protect veterans. With over 16  million veterans in the U.S., DAV helps veterans of all generations address their challenges and achieve personal victories, great and small, to better thrive in civilian life.

Barry Jesinoki, Chief Executive Officer at Disabled American Veterans:

"We are thrilled that Playtika has chosen to support DAV during the World Series of Poker app's Pokerthon," said Barry Jesinoski, CEO and national adjutant of DAV. "While players have fun, they are simultaneously making a difference in a veteran's life. Every dollar donated enables DAV to provide free, professional services to America's veterans, their families and caregivers."

Guy Ceder, General Manager of WSOP free-to-play app said:

"This isn't just another poker game; it's a chance to harness the power of our players to make an impact in playing with purpose.  Working with such a meaningful organization like DAV on this initiative was critical for WSOP and Playtika in our continued efforts of social responsibility. We're proud to be supporting and honoring those who have served their country by engaging our community, with in-game thrills having an out-of-game impact."
