The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is the premier company in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. The UFC and PokerStars entered into a partnership in 2018 to play off each other’s success in a mutually beneficial relationship.
PokerStars recently announced that UFC-branded Spin & Go’s are now up and running on its online poker platform.
The new launch took place on April 9 and these new UFC-branded Spin & Go’s will allow poker players to enjoy a unique experience of playing poker inside UFC’s iconic Octagon, with huge cash prizes and randomly assigned prize pools up for grabs.
The UFC arena atmosphere will add to the thrill and excitement, as players immerse themselves in fast-paced tournaments. It’s also been revealed that UFC fighters will be announced as sponsors and a lot more special rewards will soon be added to the games. The new Spin & Go’s will be available on all licenses, except for PokerStars.cz and PokerStars.pt.
Commenting on the launch, UFC Senior Vice President for Global Partnerships Paul Asencio said the collaboration will bring more excitement to both poker and MMA fans. Asencio said they’re glad to be able to work on new and innovative ideas with the number one poker brand in the world.
The main goal is to come out with tons of games, content, promotions and competitions that will take customer experience to a whole new level. Poker and MMA fans should stay tuned as PokerStars has some exciting things planned that will thrill poker players who like the UFC and MMA.
UFC Promoting PokerStars In The Octagon
The partnership between PokerStars and UFC started in December 2018, when the poker brand became UFC’s first-ever Official Poker Partner. The PokerStars logo began appearing on the canvas of the world-famous Octagon during UFC’s final Pay-Per-View event of 2018, UFC 232: Jones vs. Gustafsson 2.
The famous red spade logo will once again be visible on April 13, at the UFC 236: Max Holloway vs. Dustin Poirier 2 which takes place in Atlanta, Georgia. The logo will once again be visible at UFC 237: Namajunas vs. Andrade which is set to take place in in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on May 11. The exclusive partnership will allow the PokerStars brand to be present in all other Pay-Per-View events organized by the UFC throughout the year.
PokerStars has also launched UFC-themed promotions, welcoming UFC fans into the fold. This year, the online poker website will release products which will feature exclusive UFC experiences along with cash prizes.
