|In what may signal the shape of things to come and reflects the growing synergy between the online and the bricks and mortar casino, particularly in poker, The Bicycle Casino has launched its own online gaming site – a play for free casino, www.thebike.com. While the online site will not involve gambling for money, it will allow users to rack up points redeemable for cash and prizes.|
The Bicycle, located just south of LA, is one of the world’s largest card rooms with over 135 tables and features some of the world’s biggest poker tournaments. The casino promises that its new online gaming experience will offer the same quality play and customer service as is found on the casino floor in Los Angeles. It boasts an array of poker games tournaments and tutorials with additional special features offered via webcam.
'The Bicycle Casino is excited to be the first card room with an online presence,' notes Haig Kelegian, Managing Partner of The Bicycle Casino. 'We are known for great gaming and customer service and we're happy we have a medium that will allow us to bring that beyond our physical location in Los Angeles and extend free gaming to everyone online.'
