bpawardsThe  the British Poker Awards (www.thebritishpokerawards.com) have announced European sports betting and igaming operator Unibet as the headline sponsor for its 2014 awards ceremony.

Unibet joins Bluff Europe magazine, PokerNews, PokerStrategy, RankingHero and CalvinAyre.com, in celebrating the best of British poker.

“We’re genuinely delighted to have the chance to sponsor the British Poker Awards – the UK is our fastest growing market and being a London-based company, it’s a great opportunity for Unibet to get more involved in UK poker,” said Martin Stalros, Unibet Head of Poker.

“The BPA is something we look out for at the start of each year and I think most British players would agree that it’s the most important annual awards we have for poker. It also happens to be the most entertaining, and we’ll be doing our best to make sure that can still be said for at least another year!” he added.

“Unibet is dedicated to British Poker and working hard to put the fun back into poker,” said Bluff Europe editor-in-chief Michael Caselli. “This makes them a perfect fit for a ceremony that is the highlight of any player’s social calendar.”
