A recent press release from BetMGM, one of the companies leading the wave of regulated online gaming in the US, has announced Darren Elias as the latest brand ambassador for the partypoker US Network . BetMGM and partypoker have been partners for a number of years now, with the pair combining their strongest assets for mutual benefit. The partypoker US Network spans New Jersey, Michigan and Pennsylvania, though the player pools currently remain separate. A four-time World Poker Tour winner, Darren Elias has amassed over $8.6 million in live tournament earnings and almost as much online. His involvement with the company will begin with the WPT Online Borgata Poker Open scheduled to start later this month. After this, Elias will continue to promote the brand and represent the Network in various future online and live events.
