Paris Hilton and Ziigmund host PowerPoker parties

Tuesday, 25 May 2010

PowerPoker celebreated the launch of their new online casino, PowerVegas, with two lavish parties at the Cannes Film Festival. The events featured socialite and known gambler Paris Hilton alongside professional poker players Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies as well as Victory Poker team Antonio Esfandiari, Andrew Robl and Keith Gipson.

Overall, the night had almost 4,000 attendees as representatives from large affiliates such as poured through the door. The VIP Room venue is built on the Palm Beach Casino and a plethora of top-notch DJs helped the room keep jumping.

"The parties were super cool" Ziigmund says. "Carl Cox is a sick DJ, and having him play at the pool party was great. Once I heard PowerPoker has the chance to launch PowerVegas like this I was all in and didn’t hesitate one bit. I immediately knew it'll be something crazy - a true opportunity to have the best parties in a long time with a good group of friends. I don't think any other poker room has done something similar before so it was cool to be arranging such a high profile party." 

Power Poker also gave away a VIP party package to Cannes, won by lucky player Annamari Kuvaja in a $5 tournament.
