888.Com Announce Deal with Rileys Pool and Snooker Clubs
Feb-08-2007 - Casino Times
By Easter 2007 Rileys Ltd, who own 168 snooker and pool clubs across the UK, will have live poker tournaments in 100 of their clubs.
The partnership with 888.com is in a consultancy capacity and will see the launch of Rileys Poker website that will be run by the online casino.
The two companies will be working together to develop numerous areas including poker leagues, local and regional tournaments plus a nationwide event with a live televised final.
In my opinion Rileys could do with trying to achieve there core business and offering a quality environment for their 250000 cue sports members. Some of this money could have been used to develop pool and snooker in the UK, especially where prize funds are lacking.
