partypoker sponsors No Limit Gaming To Boost Twitch Presence
partypoker recently surpassed 888poker in terms of online poker revenue in 2018 to claim the number 2 spot for the leading online poker rooms in the world.
partypoker also won the “EGR Poker Operator of the Year” award for the second consecutive time in 2018 and is looking to continue its push in 2019 with some innovative strategies.
The online poker room recently announced that it had signed a 12 month partnership with No Limit Gaming (NLG) who is a top streaming team on Twitch. This is a strategic move by partypoker as the poker room has made it clear that it plans to boost its presence on the live streaming platform in 2019.
Stefan Schillhabel is the man behind NLG. He decided to create the team by bringing in the top Super High Roller and then changing it into an eSports team that would live stream on Twitch. The partnership with partypoker is an excellent way for NGL to boost their brand image and also attend partypoker events going forward.
The NLG streaming team on Twitch is comprised of some of the top poker players in the world who have a combined total of over $100 million in lifetime earnings. Some of the top players in NGL include Germany’s Fedor Holz who is ranked number 5 on the All Time Money list and Scottish poker pro Niall Farrell.
Fedor Holz Responds
The partnership between partypoker and NGL is a mutually beneficial partnership that will boost both poker and eSports. Fedor Holz who is also a partypoker ambassador was happy with the new partnership.
In a statement, Fedor Holz said
It’s great to see our team here at partypoker recognising incredible opportunities. Between the Player Panel, Team Online and the addition of the No Limit Gaming project, I believe we at partypoker are making good progress to grow the game we all love. As a member of NLG as well, I can say with confidence that Stefan and his team are going to be bringing a lot to the table to further that vision.
The NLG team usually streams around three times a week on Twitch and their streams revolve around the game of poker. However, they will soon start streaming eSports on their channel as their mission is to become a household name in eSports!
