Chris 'Jesus' Ferguson

Poker pro Chris Ferguson has signed with Glu Mobile, a creator and global publisher of mobile entertainment and partner of Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. and the World Series of Poker (WSOP).

Ferguson will play leading roles in both the World Series of Poker Texas Hold'em game and the World Series of Poker Player Advisor application.

These products are the first in the WSOP mobile portfolio based on a multi-year, worldwide alliance between Glu Mobile 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."

"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," said Ferguson.

World Series of Poker Texas Hold'em will feature Ferguson as the in-game advisor. Players in the single and multi-player game will be able to improve their skills by soliciting advice from Ferguson on how to play their hand.

The World Series of Poker Player Advisor is a tool for players looking to improve their game. It will include insider strategies, tips, and advice about Texas Hold'em from Ferguson.

Both games will be available on major wireless carries around the world this fall.
