Darren Elias And BetMGM Poker Extend Brand Ambassador Partnership

Above the Felt Entertainment, today’s leading poker marketing and talent agency, is excited to announce the brand ambassadorship extension between BetMGM Poker and world-renowned  poker professional Darren Elias. The continuation of the strategic partnership underscores the shared commitment of both parties to deliver exceptional online and live poker experiences to poker players and fans across North America.

Darren Elias, the all-time leading 4x WPT champion and celebrated high stakes title holder with more than $20M combined live and online poker tournament winnings, has been an instrumental ambassador for BetMGM Poker since 2021. His authentic endorsement and strategic thinking, combined with a charismatic presence, has significantly contributed to BetMGM Poker brand awareness, player growth and engagement with the poker community.

As part of the renewed agreement, Elias will continue to be a part of BetMGM online poker campaigns, represent BetMGM Poker at major tournament festivals, engage with poker fans through various channels, and provide valuable insights to enhance the company’s online poker and live omnichannel offerings across MGM properties as well.
