|Vinnie Jones, the face of Getminted Poker, has vowed to break the ice on the set of new movie X-Men 3 by playing online poker. |
Footballer turned Hollywood actor, Vinnie, has just been signed up to star alongside Halle Berry and Sir Ian McKellen in the forthcoming sci-fi film. Following the recent deal with Cashcade, the company behind getminted.com, Vinnie is planning to take his laptop onto the movie set so he can keep up his regular visits to Britain's first pound sterling online poker room.
'The laptop means I can go online and play anywhere,” said Vinnie, “I will even invite the others to get involved as an ice-breaker.'
Getminted poker prides itself in offering a site that offers popular chat rooms where people can meet and have fun whilst playing poker online for large prizes, from the comfort of their armchair.
Vinnie has to wear a rubber suit to boost his physique in the latest sequel and his character is 2.13 metres (seven feet) tall and weighs 413 kilograms (65 stone), meaning broad Jones will need to wear a latex costume.
Getminted are making the most of their new spokesman by offering members the chance to compete against Vinnie Jones. For the price of the entry fee to one of Getminted.com’s many tournaments, players can take their seat and challenge Vinnie with the chance to win big money.
'Once I get out of that costume I shall shower and have some downtime playing poker online,' added the star.
