June 14, 2005 (London, UK) – The world’s sexiest sportsbook and casino, PlayersOnly.com, got in bed in an exclusive sponsorship deal with the biggest, baddest, and most outrageous comedy brand on the planet, National Lampoon. As part of the arrangement, PlayersOnly.com is showcased prominently in the first several episodes of the new National Lampoon Strip Poker franchise, and its players have the chance to win copies of the DVDs.
National Lampoon’s Strip Poker is the ultimate fantasy for testosterone-driven gamblers as it deals hand after hand of quasi-supermodels in heated No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em competition, shedding clothes, one-liners, and all inhibitions in an unscripted battle for poker supremacy. Loaded with bawdy innuendo, sizzling bodies, and cutthroat card play, it’s an uproarious parody of the Texas Hold ‘Em poker phenomenon.
According to PlayersOnly.com Brand Manager JR Romero, this opportunity couldn’t be more perfect for his company. National Lampoon is an international brand that everyone knows; the brand that everyone grew up with. It taught us everything we needed to know about booze, sex, and rock n roll! This partnership is a real coup.
Romero added that poker enthusiasts from around the world would greatly enjoy this combination of high-stakes Hold ‘Em and bare-bodied beauties. ‘We know our players love the ladies as much as they love to wager,’ he said. ‘So it’s a sure bet that they’ll love National Lampoon’s Strip Poker!’
PlayersOnly.com players are no strangers to beautiful women. They’re greeted by gorgeous glamour girls at every turn on the website, which is home to the PlayersOnly.com Calendar Girls and features hot members-only galleries to entertain players between bets.
