MaximBet has signed a partnership with Charlie Blackmon of the Colorado Rockies. This is the first deal of its kind between the sports betting brand and an active professional baseball player.
Four-time ‘MLB All-Star’ and the second oldest player in Rockies history, Blackmon, known as “Chuck Nazty”, is MaximBet’s first active professional ambassador.
Blackmon will be featured in the sports betting brand’s upcoming marketing campaigns, as well as fan events, promotions and social media content.
Blackmon commented on the deal: “As I learned more about MaximBet, I knew they were absolutely the right brand for me. MaximBet really stuck with the local Colorado community, and I can’t wait to have some fun with a brand and impress. fans with incredible experiences throughout the season.”
Daniel Graetzer, CEO of MaximBet, said: “Charlie is one of the most revered Rockies players of all time, and his style and career success make him perfect for MaximBet.”
“We are delighted to welcome Charlie to the MaximBet family.” We look forward to having him welcome us as we continue to grow in Colorado and across the country,” concluded Graetzer.
The betting brand is also collaborating with custom artist SolesbySir as part of the partnership, to design Blackmon’s unique baseball and personal interest items.
SolesbySir, real name Marcus Rivero, created a custom Rawlings glove, Nike cleats and New Era Rockies hat for MaximBet’s new ambassador. With his love of fishing in mind, Blackmon also received a custom fishing bag, angler scissors and a cooler.
MaximBet and Rivero will also offer select new account holders (who sign up before April 30th) their own custom SolesbySir Collection items.
Owned and operated by the Carousel Group and in partnership with Maxim, MaximBet is currently in operation in Colorado with plans to debut in Indiana and Iowa. The brand also has additional market access in New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and the province of Ontario, Canada.
