June 9, 2005 (Montreal, Canada) – Leading online poker site, InterPoker has sealed a deal to display 30-second commercials for InterPoker and Intercasino during the Montreal Grand Prix, June 12th in Montreal, Canada and at other prominent sporting events throughout the year.
‘This deal is an indication of the popularity of poker in Canada,’ said Michael Caselli, editor of North America’s largest poker publication Bluff. Canadian poker is catching on like wildfire and is even becoming as popular as the Grand Prix. Formula 1 and InterPoker are therefore perfect partners,’ said Peter Marcus Spokesman for InterPoker.
Besides the Grand Prix coverage, InterPoker has tapped into the homes of America with the television program ‘Caribbean Poker Classic’ (CPC) which has been aired on Rogers Sports in Canada as well as channels in the UK. The CPC chronicles the trials and successes of InterPoker online poker players, as they battle for their share of almost $1 million in a high pressure, high stakes poker tournament set in the idyllic island paradise of St. Maarten.
A spokesperson for Eye Candy said: ‘Our company is dedicated to developing advertising solutions for companies worldwide through highly specialized, cost effective forms of international sports and cultural event marketing. It’s great to have InterPoker on board and be part of such an exciting, rapidly developing industry.’
‘The new commercials for InterPoker and Intercasino look excellent on the small screen so we can’t wait to see them full-scale on the big screen in Montreal this weekend. InterPoker and Intercasino offer the best poker on the internet and a monster event like the Grand Prix is a great way to showcase this,’ said Peter Marcus Spokesman for InterPoker.
