Metal Casino has added a new duo of brand ambassadors, with Gary Holt, formerly of Slayer and Exodus, and Nita Strauss, a guitarist who has shared the stage with a plethora of metal legends, being drafted in.

Launching just last year, Metal Casino aims to be the “go-to place for rockers that love gaming,” and earlier this year announced the launch of a new live show streamed on YouTube and Twitch.

Holt and Strauss join a variety of names who have aligned themselves with the brand, including Ozzy Osbourne, Dave Ellefson, Lord Ahriman, Ryan Roxie, Dregen, Backyard Babies, Scott Ian and Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal.

Holt said: “I am super excited to announce that I have partnered with Metal Casino as a brand ambassador. There will be prizes to be won, guitars, meet and greets, concert tickets and more – if you’re into metal and into games of chance, how could it get any better.”

Strauss commented: “Metal Casino combines two of my favourite things: having fun and listening to heavy metal!  For someone like me, who isn’t an experienced enough gambler to go play in Vegas, Metal Casino is a great place to come and have a good time”

Clas Dahlen, Metal Casino’s chief marketing officer, added: “These new ambassador signings are really exciting.

“First of all we are extremely happy to welcome a hard-rocking woman like Nita Strauss into the Metal Casino family. Gary Holt, from Slayer, truly strengthens our metal core since Slayer is one of the big four in thrash metal and just an awesome band.

“It’s just amazing they both will join Ozzy & Co as ambassadors in our casino lounge with the world’s greatest metal and hard rock artists.”
