At the time — which coincided with International Women’s Day (IWD) — Bilzerian’s image was also stripped from the bespoke Battle Royale game that was rebranded after him — and did not appear on the ambassador roster.
No comment came from GG so assumptions were made that the pair had finally parted ways. However, that is not the case.
As per the tweet on March 23, GG has confirmed Bilzerian is indeed still part of the GG roster. Notably, the operator turned off comments on the social media post, no doubt expecting a tidal wave of negative comments from the poker community, but that didn’t stop folks from retweeting and sharing their thoughts on the matter.
We did reach out to ask GG more about how they intend to leverage the partnership but all they could tell us was: “As the statement said, we will work with Dan on major projects, but we have no further comment at this time.”
At the time of writing Bilzerian’s name, images and emojis are still removed from the website.
Addabbo told pokerfuse that the state is currently “laying the groundwork for next year” — so save the date: *2023 could be the year that New York online poker and casino games become regulated in the state.
“iGaming in New York is not a question of if, but when. It’s going to happen — just maybe not this year,” says Addabbo.
The Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) has posted guidance to its website outlining specific actions that operators, platform providers, and third parties must take before it authorizes multistate poker.
