|Anchor gaming is the latest example of the online gaming industry’s support for the rescue effort in New York and for the victims of Tuesdays attack on the WTC and the Pentagon. The company is inviting its employees to make contributions to the American Red Cross and the families of those who lost their lives, those contributions will then be matched by Anchor Gaming who will also donate an additional 500,000 dollars.|
This is the latest example of the gambling fraternity getting behind the aid effort, The Gaming Factory, another online casino operator, are also taking contributions and casino operators both online and land-based are offering financial support to the victims of the attack.
In Las Vegas the emotional effects and the financial chaos of the attack have been most prominent as people struggle to get home without flights and use sportsbooks to get news from New York and Washington.
The gambling community will undoubtedly be hit by the financial after effects of the crisis, yet online casinos especially have been unanimous in their support for the aid effort and the victims, both vocally and financially.
Rich Onorato, CEO of The Gaming Factory put it best when he said “We want the gambling community to unite on this effort from a global perspective, and wish to show the world that the online gambling community stands for great things and great causes.”
