|Black Rhino Casino is the world's first charitable on-line casino. It will donate ten per cent of its profits to the protection of endangered species.|
The casino opens today, Friday.
After a year of extensive research, Black Rhino Casino has identified numerous non-profit organizations which are in desperate need of funding.
'Black Rhino Casino is more than just a gaming web site,' said casino spokesperson, Mr. Ron Stopchycki. 'As good corporate citizens, combined with the support of our future members, we feel that we have the ability to provide supplemental funding to major endangered species projects around the globe. In conjunction with our players and various non-profit organizations, we expect to make a direct impact on the survival of some of our most critically endangered species.'
Mr. Stopchycki went on to say, 'Not only does our casino and sportsbook provide the latest in the virtual gaming environment, but we've also paid much attention to the look and feel of the site itself. At Black Rhino Casino, we've created 'Species Spotlights' on each page to help educate our members and visitors on the plight of specific endangered species vying for survival at this very moment.
“We're also giving our members the opportunity to see the difference they're making, through updates posted on our 'Projects Page' as well as the ability to educate themselves further through our 'links' pages.'
'We fully understand the importance of taking care of our members,' acknowledged Mr. Stopchycki.
