Jamie Gold Named Spokesperson of Tropicana Resorts

2006 World Series of Poker Main Event winner Jamie Gold has been named Poker Spokespersona and Ambassador of the newly transformed Tropicana Las Vegas.  The casino’s poker room will be named “The Jamie Gold Poker Room” in his honor. 

“The Jamie Gold Poker Room” will also allow patrons to play with Gold for as little as $100 and will host an exclusive HIGH STAKES cash game on a monthly basis.
“The ownership and management of the new Tropicana, as well as Jamie, have an incredible vision for this relationship,” commented Gold’s agent, Randy Kasper of Poker Players International. “This deal is by far the biggest of its kind and the poker world will be shocked by many of the components as they are unveiled.”

“For the past three years, I have been focusing on raising money around the globe for worthy causes,” said Gold, who has worked with such high profile organizations as the United Nations and Global Creative Forum. “It has been so rewarding; I couldn’t begin to put it into words. I will continue to live up to my nickname as ‘The Poker Philanthropist’ while at the same time getting back to the game I love which has given me countless opportunities.”


It remains to be seen whether the Tropicana Resorts could ultimately cross market with Gold’s recently launched free-to-play online poker venture, FreeJamieGold.com.  Vegas casino operators are currently scrambling to gain a foothold in what is almost guaranteed to become a lucrative “real cash” online poker market.  Nevada will begin allowing licensed operators to offer “real money” play within the state’s borders until which time federal legislation is passed. 

“This deal with Tropicana covers everything I could have ever wanted in a relationship with a major Las Vegas Strip resort and it will serve as my anchor and the conduit to all of my future poker and philanthropic endeavors,” continued Gold. “I really couldn’t be more excited!”

“We’re thrilled to welcome Jamie to the Tropicana family,” stated Melissa Steinberg, vice president of entertainment and casino operations at Tropicana Las Vegas. “This new poker room is sure to not only create unique and memorable gaming experiences for our guests, but will also give them the opportunity of a lifetime to play with one of the most iconic poker players of our time.”

Gold was accused recently of bouncing a $50,000 check at the famed Atlantic City Borgata.  He has denied this ever occurred
