|Now you can ante up altruistically, with the launch of an online casino that lets the player choose the recipient of the Casino’s donations.|
Bet 4 Charity Casino launched on Friday July 12, promising its patrons “Samaritan empowerment.”
Bet 4 Charity Casino matches the amount of their top players' winnings each month, and donates the proceeds to the charity of each player's choosing. Judging by the broad representation of charities that have already been listed during the 'soft-launch' period, the Casino expects the program to catch on.
'The Bet 4 Charity Casino is the first of its kind,' notes casino spokesperson, David Hall. 'As well as offering leading edge gaming entertainment, the site provides players with Samaritan empowerment. It's the players who designate which charity or non-profit organization they want to be the beneficiary of the financial aid, not the casino.'
During the first year of operation, the Bet 4 Charity Casino expects to donate over half a million dollars to almost ninety different charities.
The Bet 4 Charity Casino also randomly selects one of the listed charities, or NPO's, each week to be the Charity of the Week. Each organization chosen benefits by collecting a share of the casino's monthly net profits.
The software features all the popular casino games, as well as a Sportsbook.
A Fantasy Sports League section, and games of skill including chess, checkers and cribbage, will be available later in the year. Bet 4 Charity Casino also features no-download games - a plus for iMac and WebTV Plus users.
