Michael Owen Announced as Brand Ambassador for Punt Casino
Reading Time: 2 minutes


English football icon and BT Sports pundit Michael Owen has officially joined the Punt Casino team as its new Brand Ambassador.

Michael Owen started a professional career in football with his Premier League debut in 1997 as a striker for Liverpool FC. Known as one of the “greatest living footballers” in Pelé’s FIFA 100, Owen is one of only 10 players to have scored 150 goals or more in his Premier League career.

Michael Owen has also received the most prestigious award in football, having claimed the Ballon d’Or trophy in 2001. He has played in three FIFA World Cups and even captained the England national team.

With this partnership in the bag and a true football icon on their side, Punt Casino is making 2022 a year to remember with the hottest action the industry has ever seen.

Hitting the back of the net

As a strong advocate for crypto and blockchain in general, Michael, along with his influential media presence and 3.7 million Twitter followers, will see Punt Casino secure its position as the fastest-growing crypto casino in the industry.

“Online casinos are more exciting than ever these days, but with its crypto focus, Punt Casino is doing something different – they really are changing the game,” said Owen, who has been involved with numerous crypto projects in the past.

He went on by saying “I’m a strong believer in the power of crypto, so teaming up with an innovative platform like Punt Casino feels like a natural fit.”

As a world-famous football commentator, respected businessman, and active media personality, Owen is the perfect representative to stand behind such an innovative crypto project. Digital currencies need every ounce of positive publicity they can get, and an endorsement from such a reputable name stands for a lot.

Michael Owen’s stamp of approval

The announcement comes with exciting news for crypto gaming enthusiasts, as Punt plans to take the industry by storm with huge prize-packed competitions.

With the 2022 FIFA World Cup fast approaching, Punt players can expect unique Michael Owen merchandise and football-related giveaways throughout the year in the build-up to the tournament.

Speaking on the announcement, Alexander Bowring, Head of Marketing at Punt Casino, said: “Michael Owen is a football icon in every sense of the word, so to have him come on board as our brand ambassador is a major moment for us. Since launching last year, Punt Casino has been changing the game, delivering exciting crypto casino action that our rivals just can’t match. Expect big things from Punt Casino in 2022 and beyond.”

Punt Casino is revolutionizing crypto gaming

Punt Casino has quickly become a strong player in the crypto casino scene with its super-powered giveaways and outstanding online casino platform. Players also get to take advantage of 24/7 customer support available instantly from the site to answer any questions or queries.

With a next-level gaming experience delivered by over 200 crypto-friendly (and handpicked!) casino games, Punt offers its players the advantage of using leading cryptocurrencies to deposit, withdraw, and play.

As crypto enthusiasts know, this allows for faster, safer, and totally anonymous transactions, which is yet another reason why Punt has become such a prominent online casino destination.

Bidstack, the leading in-game advertising platform, is pleased to announce an exclusive new partnership with Highbrow Interactive which will see four exceptional simulation games added to their portfolio. Founded in 2013, Highbrow Interactive specialises in game production, virtual reality and augmented reality and has seen over 80 million installs across its library of games.

The first two new titles to be added to Bidstack’s portfolio are Euro Train Simulator alongside its successor Euro Train Simulator 2. Boasting over ten million and five million downloads respectively, both games have provided train aficionados with first-class gameplay faithful to real-life experiences, with Euro Train Simulator 2 being the first mobile train simulator to feature officially-licensed trains from Germany’s largest railway company Deutsche Bahn.


Indian Train Simulator also joins the Bidstack portfolio. A game with stunning attention to detail, it has seen over ten million lifetime installs and has enabled access to a more diverse player base through translations. Indonesian Train Simulator is the final game to be added. With high-quality graphics and sophisticated AI trains contributing to a comprehensively authentic railroad environment, it is no wonder the game has garnered over ten million installs.

Through Bidstack, Highbrow Interactive will be able to take advantage of their in-game, in-menu and rewarded video products creating a new revenue stream whilst also contributing to the accuracy of its games without compromising on the player’s experience.

The addition of these four games to their portfolio will see Bidstack’s simulation vertical continue to grow, allowing them to provide brands with a greater selection of high-quality inventory for them to reach and engage diverse audiences.

Of the partnership, CEO and Co Founder at Highbrow Interactive Jeno Manickam Durairaj said, “We’re excited to be taking this step forward with Bidstack in enhancing our players’ experience through the use of non-intrusive advertising. Bidstack’s revolutionary technology that makes advertising seamless and organic in open-world games perfectly fits our catalogue of simulation titles. We believe that this partnership will help our games grow closer to the thrill and reality of trains and railways whilst also diversifying our revenue streams. The Bidstack team has been consistently attentive making onboarding and integration simple and hassle-free.”

Bidstack’s VP of Gaming Antoine Jullemier added, “We’re delighted to be partnering exclusively with renowned game developer Highbrow Interactive. The addition of four of their high-quality games to our growing mobile vertical stands testament to the quality of our technology and gives our brand partners access to a rich global audience of gamers.

The highly detailed gaming environments provide optimal housing for seamless in-game ads, accurately simulating true train travel without detracting from the gaming experience. We look forward to a future of delivering first-class campaigns for our new partner.”
