Bet 4 Charity Launches Charitable Online Casino

11 July 2002

Willemstad, Curacao – (Press Release) -- Bet 4 Charity Casino, the first online charitable casino that lets players choose the recipient of the Casino's donations, is pleased to announce its Grand Opening on Friday, July 12th, 2002.

Capitalizing on the philanthropic interests of many online gaming enthusiasts, 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. This unique approach to the selection of charities and non-profit organizations ensures that those in desperate need of funding will all have the same opportunity for financial aid. 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.

Mr. Hall added, "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."

Along with providing its members with the vehicle for charitable giving, the Bet 4 Charity Casino pays special attention to attracting and maintaining loyal players through VIP Bonus programs and Promotions, backed by 24/7 player support. Bet 4 Charity Casino sets new industry standards for customer service, prompt deposit and pay-out options, and a robust gaming software platform developed by FutureBet Systems Inc. The software features all the popular land-based casino games, as well as wagering with up-to-the-minute odds on Pro and International sports events in the 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 hosts instant play games (no download required) which are iMac and WebTV Plus friendly.

Bet 4 Charity Casino is a wholly-owned subsidiary of W.C. Enterprises, NV. Gaming operations function under an internet gaming license issued by the Government of Curacao, located in Netherlands Antilles.
