888.com hosts charity day

2 October 2007

IBRALTAR -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- 888.com, the Worlds No.1 online casino, has announced that October 10th will be its first charity day, in which casino, poker and bingo players can join 888.com in donating to two charity organisations.

As part of 888.com's 10th birthday celebrations and its continuing focus on responsible gaming activities, the gaming giant has pledged to contribute $100,000 to charity and to allow players to join the donation by contributing a percentage of their playing money. 888.com's employees will also be participating in special activities to raise awareness of its charity partners.

Players can choose to donate to Earth Action (http://earthaction.org/) and World For World (http://www.worldforworld.org/) at 888.com, which will be encouraging players to help make a difference and make a contribution.

Players can choose which charity organisation they wish to donate to or, if they have no preference, split the donation between the two. Both charities are dedicated to environmental conservation and human rights.

To contribute, 888.com members should play their favourite games at 888.com on October 10th, whether they be casino games, bingo or poker at 888.com's poker room, Pacific Poker (http://www.pacificpoker.com/). Alternatively, players can make a separate donation directly at the charities websites.

888.com is committed to providing a fair and responsible gaming environment. It has taken steps to assure compliance with responsible gaming practices and codes of practices, as well as following responsible privacy and consent practices.

888.com's Marketing Director, Matt Robinson, said "This is the first time we have run a Global charity day and we're delighted we can raise money for such important causes. It's a great opportunity for all of our players to work with us in contributing to important global issues -- simply by playing and enjoying our games."
