Decent.bet, a transparent, smart contract-based sports betting platform and online casino has roped in top poker pro Phil “Poker Brat” Hellmuth as its brand ambassador.
The association between the 14-time WSOP bracelet holder, Hellmuth and the decentralized platform, Decent.bet is based on the co-relation between Hellmuth’s reputation for being disruptive at the tables, which ties in with Decent.bet’s goal of “disrupting the gaming industry” via its innovative concept that allows users to act as both a player and the house.
Unlike other decentralized gambling platforms which primarily use Ether and/or Bitcoin for transactions, Decent.bet makes use of specialized tokens – DBETs – to facilitate bets on the platform as well as buy DBET House Credits.
Importantly, 100% of all platform profits are distributed to House Credit holders at a proportional rate. This opens up numerous possibilities such as community-owned houses, white label solutions and more.
Decent.Bet is thrilled about having one of the world’s most-famous poker pros serve as their ambassador. In a published statement, the company shed some light on this important development.
“Hellmuth brings a lifetime of poker and gambling experience, expertise and relationships to the DBET family. He is aligned with our goal of changing the way people play online and committed to helping us make the best gaming platform in the world. He believes in what we’re doing and has been proudly wearing our gear at the WSOP and other premier poker events this year.
Known as “the Poker Brat,” Hellmuth is a force-of-nature personality known for being disruptive. When you consider our goal of disrupting the gaming industryâ€Š—â€Šthere is not be a better fit to help us along the way than the Poker Brat.”
Decent.bet could not have asked for a better poker pro to represent their brand. With the kind of experience and exposure Hellmuth holds, it can’t get any better from that. The 53-year old pro started his poker career way back in 1987 and since then has amassed a massive $22,329,915 in tournament winnings, placing him at number one of Wisconsin’s ‘All Time Money List’, as well as 12th in the world overall. In 1989, Hellmuth took down the $10K WSOP Main Event for $755,000, and since then his bracelet tally has risen to 14, making him the WSOP’s top accolade holder. He was subsequently inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2007, joining other legendary players in this prestigious club that includes the likes of Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, and Erik Seidel.
Not just that he is currently busy at the 2018 WSOP Main Event taking place in Las Vegas. The recent updates shows Hellmuth still holds 92,000 in chips and is among the 2805 remaining players in the WSOP Main Event! Being a part of the industry since so long, Hellmuth has definitely created a niche for himself that includes his dramatic entrances in the tournaments. In the past he has been seen dressed as General Patton, Julius Caesar, a boxer, and a NASCAR driver. This year, Hellmuth paid tribute to the Marvel character Thor, and showed up sporting DBET logos on his costume, in addition to being surrounded by a gathering of stunning girls wearing Wonder Woman outfit.
Hellmuth shared news of his association with Decent.bet on Twitter.
For the record: I signed a deal w @Decent_Bet months ago. I received 2 Million DBet coins ($280,000 at the time) and I bought 1 million DBets w my own money: $100,000 (10 cents a coin). I am an advisor, an ambassador, and I currently own 3 Million coins. https://t.co/M1hX7jG09K
