LOS ANGELES - “Jesus” signs on to play key roles in Glu Mobile’s upcoming poker titles.

Today at E3, Glu Mobile, a creator and publisher of mobile entertainment, announced it has signed poker legend Chris “Jesus” Ferguson to play key roles in both the World Series of Poker Texas Hold’em game and the World Series of Poker Player Advisor application. These are the first two products in the World Series of Poker mobile portfolio based on a multi-year, worldwide alliance between Glu and Harrah’s License Company, LLC, an affiliate of Harrah’s Entertainment, Inc.

“World Series of Poker is known for its champions, and Chris Ferguson is the most iconic champion in poker,” said Robert Nashak, chief creative officer, Glu Mobile. “Based on Chris’ tournament success, worldwide popularity and expert poker skills we’re thrilled to incorporate him into our mobile products.”

Known in the poker world as “Jesus”, Chris Ferguson is identifiable by his signature black hat, duster and long hair. He has notched nine first place tournament finishes, including the 2000 World Series of Poker, has five World Series of Poker bracelets and is one of the most recognizable faces in poker.

“The team at Glu is doing a fabulous job of creating an authentic poker experience, and I’m honored to be a part of these cutting-edge mobile products,” commented Chris Ferguson.

The World Series of Poker mobile products will feature:

  • World Series of Poker Texas Hold’em: This single and multi-player game will feature Chris Ferguson as the in-game advisor. Players of all levels will be able to improve their skills by soliciting advice on how to play their hand.
  • World Series of Poker Player Advisor: The ultimate poker toolkit for players looking to improve their game, the World Series of Poker Player Advisor will include insider strategies, tips and advice from Chris Ferguson to help players master Texas Hold’em.

World Series of Poker Texas Hold’em and World Series of Poker Player Advisor will be available to consumers on major wireless carriers around the world this fall.
