Bet on Political Sack Race

20 February 2006

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Poker is well known as a game that brings anyone and everyone together, but rarely if ever would you expect to see the likes of Bush and Blair, to Putin and Chirac at your side whilst you play!

Used to dominating world events, the tables have however been turned on 6 of the world's leaders at sophisticated poker site, Purple Lounge, where these politicians are engaged in a political sack race!

The concept is inspired in its simplicity. Players at the site can place a wager on one of six political leaders – Bush, Blair, Koizumi, Angela Merkel, Chirac, and Putin – to win an animated sack race.

The winner is completely random for each race, with lucrative odds offering rewards of up to $100,000. What's more, special "Hot Pot" races – where the politician's eagerly fight it out for topped up pots of lovely greenbacks. [That's dollars to you Mr. Bush

The humorous game is yet another pioneering new addition to the poker provider's list of activities. "Purple Lounge strives to offer the most innovative in gaming play, both in our poker tables and in our entertainment," explained seductive cyber face of the company Tara – whose party hopping diary of events and socialising can also be read on the site.

"We have added a number of new events recently from the seasonal Valentine's games recently, to the chance to win VIP tickets to the FIFA World Cup in Berlin, and even a Bentley Continental GT. Everyone at Purple Lounge gets a free $3 to kick off the fun"

"This latest addition is a slightly irreverent bit of fun for our players that they can access through the sites fun sidebar. What's more, like all our games, players can benefit from the fun of the race 24 hours a day."

The odds may be undecided on our political leaders, but Purple Lounge is certainly racing ahead of its competitors in product offerings.
