In a new publicity stunt attempt, Bodog Poker Network decided to send an anonymous player dressed in a specially designed Zorro outfit to play at APT Philippines. Moreover they are offering a 1000$ bounty to whoever knock them out of the tournament.
For the special Zorro style hat, Bodog went out of his way and hired the very famous hat designer Tara O´Callaghan who is the student of Philip Treacy. Tara O´Callaghan is also known for designing hats for Zara Philip, the eldest granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. The Zorro hat for Bodog will be hand make in UK.
Bodog Poker is known to promote recreational players. “When we first introduced the Recreational Poker Model we were much ridiculed and so it is satisfying that virtually all major poker rooms have now changed direction and are seeking to improve the poker eco-system by introducing incentives to the all-important net depositing player. While I am not a fan of the Player Segregation Model unveiled by Party Poker recently there is no mistaking the reasoning behind it.” Says Bodog Poker Network President, Jonas Odman.
He adds “The costume and bounty for our anonymous player at the upcoming APT is partly a bit of fun but it is also there to serve as reminder that we believe the Bodog Network is far and away the fairest place to play poker online. We are the only Network based in Asia with the emerging Asian player in mind and we are specifically optimised for sports betting sites that want access to a network but don’t want their players’ money diverted away to poker pros.”
Bodog´s Zorro will also participate in Grand Final of the APS with a prize pool of $100,000 in January 2014. Bodog will definitely make one anonymous, recreational online poker player dressed in Zorro outfit very happy!
