The historic Bicycle ® brand playing cards may be better known than ‘The United States Playing Card Company’ (USPC) which produces them. However, the USPC has been selected by Harrah’s Entertainment, to supply the World Series of poker with its new Poker Peek ™ cards.
While this decision is subject to regulatory approval, the three-year agreement, will introduce the Poker Peek face style. The cards will be printed on KEM® brand card stock, with a special Bicycle-inspired card-back.
“As part of this proposed agreement, every table of every World Series of Poker bracelet event will be supplied – every day – with a fresh setup of premier quality KEM cards from USPC,” said Jeffrey Pollack, commissioner of the WSOP.
Rob Clendening, brand manager for the Bicycle brand added, “This is a fun moment in history to bring the 120-year heritage of the Bicycle brand to the most prestigious poker tournament in the world.”
The company also announced that the cards used during the WSOP will be the inspiration for a new deck available to the public later this year.
