It’s been a quiet few weeks on MPL Poker, but that’s just the calm before the storm of announcements the brand has in store! India’s BIGGEST poker platform with over 25 Lakh registered players, MPL Poker, is back in a new avatar! With a new logo, anthem and slogan, “Let’s Poker,” the online poker portal has also signed a new brand ambassador. Today, the online poker arm of the gaming unicorn, Mobile Premier League (MPL), announced Bollywood actor Jim Sarbh as its latest brand ambassador!
After Shahid Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, and Shahrukh Khan, Sarbh is the fourth mainstream Bollywood celebrity signed up by an online gaming brand this year.
MPL has had several celebrity brand ambassadors over the years, including the former captain of the Indian national cricket team, Virat Kohli, actress Tamannaah Bhatia, and YouTuber Amit Bhadana. However, this is the first time the company’s online poker subsidiary has onboarded a celebrity as a brand ambassador outside the poker circuit. MPL Poker has previously associated with poker pro Dhaval Mudgal and is currently represented by Siddharth Karia.
While Sarbh’s signing on with MPL Poker is exciting news, there’s more the brand has to share! Sarbh’s initiation marks a new era for MPL Poker, which has undergone a complete revamp. From the introduction of Sit and Go and Timed Tournaments to mouth-watering MTTs and lucrative cash game promotions, it’s all happening on MPL Poker!
The site has put up ₹1.50 Crores in tournament guarantees throughout November, while the Cash Bash 2.0 offers cash game enthusiasts a chance at winning as much as ₹20 Lakhs each! In all, MPL Poker is offering a jaw-dropping ₹5 Crores in winnings from November 15 to December 14!
MPL Poker Signs Jim Sarbh As Brand Ambassador
The 35-year-old Parsi actor, Jim Sarbh, came into the limelight in 2013 through his performance in the revival of the stage play, “Death of a Salesman.” Transitioning from the stage to the silver screen, Sarbh has been a part of critically and commercially successful films such as “Neerja” (2016), “A Death in the Gunj” (2016), “Padmaavat” (2018), and “Sanju” (2018).
Sarbh is one of the few actors who have also made a mark for himself on the OTT platforms with his well-received performance in the SonyLIV web series ‘Rocket Boys,’ as Dr. Homi Bhabha. For his extensive work in theatre, Sarbh was listed in Forbes India’s 30 under 30 list in 2015.
Besides being an outstanding actor, Sarbh is also a poker player and enjoys the game for the skill and thrill factors involved.
MPL Poker Revamped
If you have visited the MPL Poker platform recently, you would have noticed the new look and feel. The site has worked hard to become more user-friendly with a new logo and upgraded UI/UX. MPL Poker has recently launched Sit and Go and Timed Tournaments, giving players more game variants to choose from.
Complementing the soft tournament fields, MPL Poker players have ₹1.50 Crores in MTT guarantees awaiting them in November.
MPL Poker launched MTTs on its platform on October 27, last year. And less than two weeks later, it came out with details of its first MTT series – Steal Deal Series (November 17 to 21). The Steal Deal Series hosted its fifth edition in June. The site’s most extensive MTT series to date, ₹8 Crores GTD India Poker Festival, ran from May 26 to June 5.
Cash game players haven’t been ignored, as the popular Cash Bash is returning for a second edition from November 15 to December 14. Cash Bash 2.0 offers players a chance at winning as much as ₹20 Lakhs each. Players must collect points and will be paid based on the points accumulated during the promotion.
