Full Tilt Poker enters Formula 1 Racing

Full Tilt Poker has already entered into high-profile sponsorship deals with sports such as mixed martial arts and rugby.  But Full Tilt is determined to advertise their brand to even more sports fans that play poker since they have entered the world of Formula 1 racing.

The deal was struck when Full Tilt Poker contacted Virgin Racing about sponsoring them; Virgin Racing is a well-known F1 racing team owned by billionaire Richard Branson.  With the completion of the deal, one of the world’s largest poker sites will have their logo on Virgin Racing’s VR-01 car, the drivers’ uniforms, and the team’s apparel.

Full Tilt is hoping the deal will draw lots of F1 fans that will be looking to take advantage of the 27% rakeback deals offered at Full Tilt.  Beyond this, the giant internet poker site is just happy to be partnered with an excellent F1 racing team. 

Holdem poker pro Chris “Jesus” Ferguson echoed these sentiments when he said, “With two leaders in their respective fields coming together, this is sure to be a groundbreaking partnership on the global canvas, providing yet another level of excitement for all fans.”  He finished by saying, “We are very excited to be associated with such a stellar brand as Virgin Racing, and we look forward to launching this partnership in Spain.”

Ferguson spoke of Spain because that’s the first place where the online poker room had their logo displayed.  FT’s logo will be plastered on the uniforms of drivers Lucas di Grassi and Tomi Glock at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya.  After the Barcelona stop, Virgin Racing will be in Monaco, Monte Carlo and Istanbul, Turkey.

It will definitely be interesting to see if Full Tilt’s Formula 1 advertisements have racing fans everywhere rushing to learn how to play poker online.
