HOMETOWN HEROES

A PLACE TO CELEBRATE OUR HEROES.

You may have noticed—at Global Poker we love our community of players. We celebrate them, we reward them, and we think about them all the time. Maybe that last bit sounds a bit creepy, but you know what we mean—our players are at the start and heart of what we do!

We send out trophies, giant checks and merch to our players, for tournaments they’ve won or for large prizes they’ve redeemed. We also love seeing our merch out and about, across the nation—heck, even the globe—we have a couple of international players who are rocking their GP swag outside of the US (not just Canada, sorry Canada), making Global Poker truly global.

With our quarterly, flagship Global Poker Championships—Grizzly Games, Rattlesnake Open, The GOAT and Eagle Cup—we send out bespoke trophies to winners. This year we’ve upped our game with the trophies, and we’ve loved seeing the responses to these from players on social media.

Our Hometown Heroes promotion has been running for a long time now, and we’ve seen a huge number of player photos, and it’s awesome. We’re building a global community and having fun along the way.

When our players take down an event in one of our Global Poker Championships—or one of our many other series we hold throughout the year—that’s something special. Not many people have done it, or can do it, and we like to celebrate and reward those players accordingly. Like the great man once said, “A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer.” That great man was Ralph Waldo Emerson.

It’s also great for our business when we show our players winning. Not to make out like it’s more fancy that it really is, but that’s kind of what it’s all about—our players win, we show pictures of our players with their trophies, and more people come to play, because they want to win too. Just like Apple shows pictures of people loving their products, knowing that other people want to have as great a time as the people in the pictures. Wow, who’d a thunk it? Now we’ve torn the mask off our amazing marketing genius, let’s get into it.

Our Hometown Heroes is a celebration of our players and of this great, vast, crazy place we call home. There’s nowhere else that’s as diverse, as beautiful and as mind-blowing as America, and we’ve got players from pretty much everywhere there is, and we love it when we put a new place on the Global Poker map.

And when our players win, we give them an opportunity to show off, and take home a little bit more of the pie. Come on and find out how you can enjoy a little Hometown Hero action.
