WPT Legend Darren Elias Extends His Brand Partnership With BetMGM Poker

Ben Horlock

Four-time World Poker Tour champion Darren Elias has upped the ante with BetMGM Poker, agreeing to extend his role as its brand ambassador. 

Elias has been with the operator since 2021 and will continue to represent its high-quality online and live poker experiences across North America.

Furthermore, Elias will feature in BetMGM Poker campaigns at major tournaments as well as contribute written blog content to The Roar over the course of 2024.

It’s a solid move for BetMGM Poker as Elias is arguably the biggest name in the game – and he will also socialize and engage with keen fans whilst on the road.

“BetMGM Poker has been a tremendous partner and I’ve been proud to be part of the company’s growth for the last few years,” Elias said of the extended partnership.

“Together, we will continue innovating our online poker offerings and focus on bringing new hybrid online and live poker opportunities to all of BetMGM’s poker and sports markets across the U.S,” he added.

Director of Poker at BetMGM, Luke Staudenmaier elaborated: “Darren’s talent and passion for poker, along with his dedication to excellence, align perfectly with our brand values.

“We look forward to achieving new milestones together and continuing to provide top-tier online and live poker opportunities to our players.”
