They work on building a global online poker audience by creating content and investing in Twitch.TV.“We have been a bit behind the curve when it comes to streaming, but we are hoping to make up for lost time by compiling an elite team that will be able to stream entertaining and engaging content 24/7,”
- said Tom Waters, Partypoker Managing Director.
A spokesperson added more details, when speaking to PokerIndustryPRO: “Twitch offers us an amazing opportunity to provide our viewers with amazing content covering a broad range of areas and topics, ranging from live high stakes cash games and strategy discussions, to prize giveaways and behind-the-scenes exclusives, so our audience will never be short of quality poker content on the go,”

The two have already built a sizeable audience on Twitch. Matt (who is the brother of fellow poker streamer, Jamie Staples) has over 52,000 followers

There’s nothing I like more than streaming tournaments on Twitch and I’m pumped to have the opportunity to showcase and help grow partypoker and their Twitch community.”
