BamPoker Launches To Facebook

bampokerOver the weekend, superstar actress, model and international celebrity Pamela Anderson launched BamPoker (note, the official site has a very poor Web of Trust rank), the online gaming industry’s most exciting virtual Facebook poker experience to date. The BamPoker Facebook App boasts thrilling game play, a leading-edge online community and is the only place online where members can play Texas Hold’em poker with Pamela Anderson herself.

BamPoker pits real individuals from all over the world against one another in both casual and tournament-style Texas Hold’em play. There is no real-money gambling at BamPoker — it’s free to play, and it’s all about the fun. As players win virtual chips and gain experience points, they gain access to higher-level opponents and higher-stakes games. The ultimate goal is to obtain a VIP Badge, which allows top players to take their chances at BamPoker’s exclusive VIP tables for the poker elite.

Founded by Canadian entrepreneurs Elton Pereira and Jeremy Nichele, BamPoker brings a new level of excitement to online social poker. “We are committed to providing a fun, social and interactive gaming experience through quality game design,” says BamPoker co-founder and CEO Elton Pereira. “BamPoker encourages active user engagement and strong community spirit, something we feel has been missing from the online poker world.”

BamPoker is committed to celebrating the essence of poker, which is its sheer unpredictability — “In a poker game, anything can happen,” Pereira states. “Even a flop can make you a winner.” Hence BamPoker’s motto: “That’s the Beauty of the Game!”™

Pereira and Nichele wanted BamPoker to have a “personal touch” like no other site, so who better to bring on board than international celebrity and poker fan Pamela Anderson? Pamela is much more than BamPoker’s spokesperson and creative consultant — she is an active member of the BamPoker community where she maintains a fan page, plays Facebook poker, and periodically chats with members via the BamPoker App.

A multi-talented model, actress, entrepreneur, philanthropist, activist, spokesperson, designer and mother, Pamela Anderson is one of the most multi-talented stars in history. With an unprecedented resumé that includes television smashes “Home Improvement” and “Baywatch,” her self-created and produced hits “VIP” and “Stacked,” and memorable film roles in “Barb Wire” and “Borat,” Anderson is an international icon. She has been featured on the covers of countless magazines, including an astonishing 14 appearances on the cover of the U.S. edition of Playboy — making her the most-featured cover girl in Playboy history.

“When I first met Elton and Jeremy, I knew they were on to something special,” says Pamela Anderson. “They weren’t interested in creating just another game — they wanted to take the social elements of online poker in a bold new direction. There is nothing like BamPoker out there today, and I am excited to be a part of such an innovative platform!”

Beyond the game, BamPoker is a socially-conscious company that will roll out a series of non-profit partnerships throughout 2012, making valuable contributions to a variety of worthy causes. As a world-renowned philanthropist, Pamela Anderson will help spearhead many of these initiatives.
