It’s Time for Some Unboxing: 14 Mystery Boxes Were Sent to the Influencers
All the content creators and influencers who will take part in the exciting #RoadToTheTable challenge have already received their mystery boxes. What’s in the boxes? Some cool poker chips and card decks they will practice their skills with over the course of the upcoming months. The mystery boxes were also accompanied by some cool video messages warmly welcoming them to the tourney. Lauren Fitzmaurice decided to share the contents of her mystery box with her TikTok followers as soon as she came back from Las Vegas. She took the opportunity to let everyone know that they could join her, watch her journey on TikTok and play poker by her side as she strives to turn into a walking poker legend in the flesh.
ZackTTG, who has gathered close to 104 million views on his sports-based YouTube channel since his debut in 2015, decided to do the unboxing on his Instagram account. He added that in spite of being a newbie in the poker world, he spent the last few weeks engaged in the game. While addressing over 370,000 followers, he thanked his “homies” at the World Series of Poker for sending him the special kit that would help him up his game.
WSOP app general manager Guy Ceder expressed the company’s excitement to be able to finally reveal who the 14 lucky creators are, in hopes that their choices will help inspire large audiences to start exploring the game on their own virtually and in real life.
This year, the 53rd edition of the World Series of Poker will be held between May 31 and July 20 at two Las Vegas casinos.
