20 Years of PokerStars Employee Stories: Severin Rasset, Managing Director & Commercial Officer

As we continue to mark our 20th anniversary here at PokerStars, we’ve been speaking to our colleagues to discover more about them, and their experiences working for the biggest online poker company in the world.

Meet Severin Rasset, who recently celebrated his own 10-year anniversary with PokerStars.

Severin has had a number of memorable moments working for the Company and feels that he has grown since his first day in the role.

‘A dream come true’

‘On 1st September 2021, I marked a decade with PokerStars. With the Company turning 20 it’s good to know that I have been here for exactly fifty per cent of its life, and I’ve grown and matured with them since joining.

It was a dream come true when starting my career here. I’ve lived that dream for the last ten years and have been lucky that I’ve been able to do a job I love.

There are many memorable moments from my time with PokerStars. These include:

  • The 100 and 200 billionth hands dealt at PokerStars
  • Our biggest Sunday Million anniversary in 2020 with more than $18M of prize pool
  • Launching PokerStars VR, a completely new product in 2018
  • The growth opportunities I had in this Company to reach the position of MD of Poker.
  • Live events in Monte Carlo & Barcelona
  • Launching our first machine learning tool to protect our games
  • Launching Spin & Go, a new product and seeing players register all day long

A big 20th anniversary celebration

With events, competitions and secret surprises organised for the coming months, we’re looking forward to thanking all our colleagues for being part of PokerStars’ incredible journey.
