You're the Script
To create your own poker story, all you need to do is play a minimum of 40 hands or 20 tournaments over the course of a week on 888poker.
While 40 hands is probably a little too small of a sample to use as a basis, it's still enough to create the base for your own poker movie..
From that base 21 of your personal statistics that week will then be used to create a 60-80 second video.
It'll show off all of your major moments including your biggest hand, your best tournament result and where you rank among your countrymen/women.
Statistics used include:
- Number of played hands
- Best hand
- Number of hands won
- Biggest pot
- Number of knockouts
- Number of knockouts according to country
- Best tournament ranking
- Number of ITM finishes
- Tournament earnings
- Your national ranking
- Your player nemesis
- Aggressiveness meter
- Loose/tight meter
Have a look at what your first personalized poker video could look like:
A Story that Keeps Evolving
"The 'Personalized Video,' says 888poker, "is constructed around each player, including deep personalized info like nationality, profits and playing patterns, to create a story that keeps evolving as long as the player stays active,"
Videos where players can make themselves the protagonists might indeed be a powerful way to bring players to and keep them at the tables. Players can make a new video clip every week.
Social media is obviously crucial in this project so the videos have built-in buttons to share the clip on Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp. In the first stage of the promotion about 20,000 players were contacted and more than 10% of participants shared their videos.
For now only players with English as their chosen language can use the service however German and Russian versions will be available within the next six weeks.
