The Universe Boss Chris Gayle needs no introduction. Sports fans all around the world will know this Jamaican cricketer as one of the hardest hitters of the cricket ball, and also as a bad boy off the field. He has always been one of the most popular international cricketers among Indian fans.
Poker company Adda52 then decided to use his popularity in India to their advantage by approaching him to be their brand ambassador and promote the company through various online and offline channels, including social media. Gayle was delighted with the offer and accepted it immediately.
Gayle has been associated with Adda52 and the game of poker since a while. He has been an unofficial ambassador of the company since a couple of months now, recently featuring at the DPT Colossus tournament series in April on board the Deltin Royale in Goa.
Adda52 and Gayle have now made their association official, and he will be present at all future editions of the Deltin Poker Tournament, while also actively promoting Adda52’s fantasy sports platform called LeagueAdda. To celebrate this announcement, Adda52 also launched an online tournament called Gayle Storm with a massive guarantee of INR 50 lakh. It will take place tomorrow, 5th August.
The West Indian cricketer plays for Kings XI Punjab in the IPL and his popularity in India is set to help Adda52 attract thousands of new players to their online platform. Mohit Agarwal, co-founder of Adda52, commented, “We are excited to have Chris as our brand ambassador as this will go a long way in improving the awareness of our brand and the game overall. Moreover, this will also help the people relate more with poker and re-emphasize the fact that Poker is a skill-based game which offers fun & thrill at the same time. We are the poker pioneers in India and look forward to many more users on Adda52’s award-winning platform.”
Gayle also seemed excited at the association, saying, “I’m really glad to be a part of Adda52! I have been playing recreationally poker for a while now. I have a special relationship with the people of India. Adda52’s name is synonymous with online poker in India – it was an immediate yes from my side. It’s amazing to see the growing passion for poker in India and I would love to be a part of this journey.”
