Jack Dean is one of 888poker’s latest cultural ambassadors, better known by his online alias “JaackMaate”. He’s a British YouTuber, podcaster, and internet personality, with a wicked (some may say twisted) sense of humour. Jack describes himself as another YouTube personality, with little personality; but he has something his 1.4 million subscribers love (it’s that sense of homour). His videos primarily focus on internet culture and he isn’t afraid to voice his opinion. He rips YouTube influencers apart and gets into all sorts of messes with TV and internet reality stars. In 2019, Jack created the podcast 'Happy Hour' alongside Stevie White and Alex Elmslie (ImAlex). The show quickly topped the podcast charts for comedy in the UK, and now is sitting squarely in third-place overall on the UK Spotify podcast charts. As a testament to his sneaky, tongue-in-cheek personality, in May 2020, Jack the prankster convinced Love Island stars to promote his fake brand of makeup! Of course, they fell for it – hook, line, and sinker. In poker, Jack has participated in several tournaments, including the World Series of Poker Main Event (which he’s played twice). As an 888poker ambassador, he plans document his journey in poker, including his participation in many more tournaments. And, of course, as an internet sensations this will include introducing his followers to our amazing poker community with fantastic online poker activities for his fans. Jack hopes to bring this skill of trickiness and deception to the poker tables as he dons the mantle of 888poker ambassador. Follow JaackMaates’s poker journey on his social media channels: He regularly posts content on his Instagram, @jaackmaate. His YouTube c/jaack channel has over 1.4M subscribers, and JaaackHappyHour has almost 700K subs. You can also catch up with him on Twitter @Jaack
