A successful businessman, actor, professional poker player, social media influencer with over 32 million followers on Instagram, Dan Bilzerian has always been in the limelight for some or the other reason. The big man is back in the news, this time for signing GGPoker as a brand ambassador.
Bilzerian is one of the world’s richest poker players and a big chunk of his fortune has come from poker. Given his love for poker, worldwide fame and a huge following across social media platforms, the leading online poker room GGPoker on December 3 announced him as their brand ambassador. The self-proclaimed King of Instagram, Bilzerian will be representing the brand live as well as online.
The latest signing follows deals with some big names like Daniel Negreanu, who ended his 12-year role with PokerStars before joining GGPoker, as well as other top-ranked players Fedor Holz, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, and Felipe Ramos. It marks the second mainstream celebrity to work with the online poker room, with GGPoker previously partnering with tennis legend Boris Becker.
A Special $100K Freeroll To Celebrate The Latest Signing
To celebrate the latest signing, GGPoker will host a special 40th birthday party for the ‘King of Instagram’ on December 7 in the form of a $100,000 Birthday Freeroll tourney. This free-to-enter game is open to all new GGPoker players that sign up using code BLITZ40 and deposit $10 or more.
The winner will take home $10,000 plus an additional $3000 as a buy-in to be used in ‘once-in-a-lifetime heads-up series vs Dan’. It’s a progressive knockout where players will be able to win extra bounty prizes. Knock Dan out to win an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas in summer 2021 to party with him. Knock any other Team GGPoker player (ambassador or GGSquad member) or one of Dan’s special guests to win a Spin & Gold bundle ($200 value) or $1,000 in cash for one lucky winner.
“In these crazy times, GGPoker is the best option to get my poker on – they cater to the recreational players and that’s the future of poker, not a bunch of math nerds,” said Dan Bilzerian. “I’ve battled guys from the $2 buy-in to the $200,000 buy-in tables at GGPoker, and will be working with GG to make cash game tables even better for the average player out there.”
“Dan joining Team GGPoker is a huge win! No one in poker has a bigger reach than Dan,” said fellow GGPoker Ambassador Daniel Negreanu. “He has won millions in cash games and isn’t afraid to get into the mix against the sharks in the high-stakes streets at GGPoker!”
