The partnership signals a new version of PokerStars’ Zoom Poker at Usain Bolt-branded tables. Bolt will join the ranks of other sports stars and celebrities working with the poker brand.

Usain Bolt is the leading Olympic champion in 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 x 100 meters. He also holds medals and titles from other prestigious competitions in athletics. Bolt retired from the sport this year at the World Championship in Athletics, hosted in London.

The Bolt-branded game of Zoom poker will sport new features for online players. More so, the cash game will offer players a unique gaming experience. These will include opponents changing with each hand and a unique ‘Fast Fold’ option.
