Rannvijay to front ads of poker gaming portal

Mumbai, April 24 (IANS) TV host-actor Rannvijay Singha has been chosen as the new face of The Spartan Poker, an Indian online poker gaming portal.

Rannvijay said in a statement: "It is exciting to be associated as the first brand ambassador of The Spartan Poker, an online poker brand that has fast become one of the most sought after destinations on the internet to play poker."

"Having used the portal myself, I have come to realise that poker is a skill-based game, and while physical fitness is important, mental fitness is equally important. It's a thinking game that puts your mind to task, and has hence proved to be a wonderful tool through which everyone can build and enhance their analytical and logical skill sets."

The online poker gaming portal was launched in 2014. 

Amin Rozani, Managing Director and Co-founder The Spartan Poker, said: "Poker is a game of skills and mind boggling challenges, Rannvijay not only understands the game properly but also abides by the rules of the game."

"He is an excellent poker player. As a youth icon who is so bold and canny, I think Rannvijay is a perfect fit for The Spartan Poker to make people aware of poker as an intellectual game, sport and not just gambling."
