|Online casino, Nine.com has chosen multi-millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett as its latest 'Gambler of the Week,' which recognizes those who take risks by doing something unusual, risky, heroic or foolish during the previous week. |
Robert Evans, a Nine.com executive, said, “Steve Fossett definitely meets the criteria for our ‘Gambler of the Week’ title. Mr. Fossett is an amazing person and a multiple world record holder.” Evans added, “Mr. Fossett not only endured, but overcame a loss of electricity, an emergency landing, running out of runway at takeoff, massive turbulence, which almost broke the plane apart, having barely enough fuel, lack of sleep, a change in landing airports and bursting two tyres upon landing.’”
As 'Gambler of the Week', Mr. Fossett will receive Nine.com merchandise and gift certificates to use on their website.
