Online poker website partypoker has ramped up its marketing efforts with yet another poker pro joining its ranks as an ambassador and the launch of an exciting offer for the Caribbean Poker Party.
After Australian pro Jackie Glazier, Hungarian poker pro Beata Jambrik popularly known as the ‘Wild Hungarian‘ becomes the latest brand ambassador to join partypoker’s set of sponsored pros. Jambrik started playing poker only in 2015 but has since gathered a strong following on her Twitch page.
She streams regularly on the site showing her playing Spin & Go tournaments on PokerStars. This of course might change now that she represents the partypoker brand.
Jambrik is a close friend of poker pro Patrick Leonard, who lives in Hungary and is also an ambassador for partypoker. He had been the face of the brand during the launch of partypoker’s Twitch channel earlier this month. Jambrik will kick off her association with partypoker with a game session on Oct. 16 when she will play her favored Sit & Go Hero game.
The move by partypoker to add a Twitch star to its roster suggests the rising importance of Twitch as an advertising medium to the game of poker. Jason Somerville and Jaime Staples are both top Twitch poker stars who have been signed by Team PokerStars. The platform allows interaction between players and fans, which allows for a closer experience for fans. Partypoker is pushing hard in 2016 to increase its marketing push with innovative advertising campaigns and promotions. One of its recent promotions is for the Caribbean Poker Party (CPP) which is a poker tournament sponsored by partypoker and the Dusk Till Dawn casino in the UK. The total amount of guaranteed prize money that will be given away during the CPP is $3,000,000.
In an exciting offer, partypoker and Dusk Till Dawn are giving players a chance to win 20 packages for the Caribbean Poker Party worth $6,000 each. Players have an opportunity to win every Monday starting Nov. 19 up till Nov. 26. These packages can be won by participating in qualifying games currently ongoing on the partypoker website. Several have already won in the qualifiers with stakes as low as $0.01. These packages can be purchased directly from Dusk Till Dawn as well.
The tournament will see participation of leading poker pros such as Marcel Luske, Sam Trickett, Igor Kurganov, Michael Mizrachi, Joao Simao and Dzmitry Urbanovich. The recently appointed partypoker ambassador Jackie Glazier will be playing host at the CPP.
