Ladbrokes Poker has signed up an unlikely new ambassador to represent this bustling online poker room. Boyzone singer, Shane Lynch will join Ladbrokes Poker for at least a year, after the site sponsored him for his involvement in the motorsport known as Drifting. Lynch’s main aim is to bring the game of poker to the people, showing that anyone can learn to play it.
“I’d always been a bit intimidated by the poker scene; I’d seen it on TV and found the whole thing a bit baffling,” said Lynch. “But having spent time with the Ladbrokes players at a few events last year, I’ve seen that you don’t need to be an expert to give it a go. I’m really looking forward to getting into this poker journey, learning more and having some great fun along the way.”
Ladbrokes Poker was also thrilled about the partnership and the group’s Head of Poker, Kate McLennan said: “Shane is the perfect ambassador for Ladbrokespoker.com – he’s a great guy and totally down to earth. We want to show that poker is for everyone. We’re not like other sites that spend huge amounts on poker professionals that their players will never be able to relate to. Ladbrokespoker.com is the site that’s friendly, accessible, where all ages and abilities come together. Poker takes a moment to learn and a lifetime to master. With Shane, we want to show that anyone can give it a go and have fun.”
