Johan Storakers Joins Team UltimateBet
UltimateBet.com is further making its mark in the online gaming industry as it signs on one of the best and hottest poker players of this generation.
35 year-old Johan Storakers from Sweden is the latest addition to team UltimateBet. Storakers, before building his name in the professional poker playing circuit, undertook national military service before taking on telemarketing and retail jobs.
But with poker being in his blood, Storakers soon heeded its call and became a professional poker player. From the time he started, Stroakers has cashed in 41 finishes and has more than a dozen appearances in the World Series of poker and World Poker Tour. Overall, he has pocketed more than $1.37 million in poker.
"Being asked to join the team of poker professionals at UltimateBet is a huge honour for me. Playing alongside legends such as Phil Hellmuth can only improve my game and take me forward to a first World Series of Poker bracelet," Storakers said.
"Ultimatebet.com has already built a strong following amongst professional poker players for its excellent software and wide variety of games. Our goal through signing such an outstanding European talent as Johan is to build awareness of and interest in Ultimatebet.com from more recreational players. This signing is part of our plans to launch the Ultimatebet.com brand into key European markets and build on our 2.5million player base," Managing Director of Loudvision Chris Welch, UltimateBet's marketing agency said.
