PokerStars has swelled in ambassadorial roster further still, with Austrian streamer Sebastian Huber, who took part in a special promotion last year, the latest to join.

Previously, Huber was seen topping 263 entrants in the Dare2Stream promotion at PokerStars, which secured a PokerStars Players Championship platinum pass, as well as this subsequent aforementioned designation. 

Fellow ambassadors of the Flutter Entertainment brand, Mason Pye and GJ Reggie, detailed the winning status in December, with formal enrolment into the PokerStars network formalised during EPT Prague, which took place earlier this month.

Sam Grafton, another ambassador on the PokerStar roster, announced the news live, as he took his new patch out for its debut in the record breaking €1K EPT Eureka event which drew a field of 3,155 entries.

“Before the tournament started, I was pretty nervous. Especially because I knew that everyone would have a close look at the new ambassador,” said Huber. 

“Being part of team PokerStars has still a lot to say for the poker community. The nervousness had subsided with the beginning of the tournament and from the moment on I was just proud being part of the team.”

This follows the brand launching what it dubbed as the “most generous rewards program in US poker,” with ‘PokerStars Rewards’ rolled-out for players across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Michigan.

The new program, says the firm, has been built on player feedback and insights, and is designed to offer added value, ways to earn, and transparency.

“We’re excited to bring our new PokerStars Rewards program to our community in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Michigan and give players more than ever before for playing with us,” said Rebecca McAdam, Associate Director of Consumer Engagement and Public Relations at PokerStars. 

“We’ve been working hard to give our players the best program and from listening to community feedback, we know that value and transparency are key, so we’re very happy to launch a program that has truly been built with this at its heart.”
