BackgammonMasters Matches Every Dollar Given in Backgammon Events for China Earthquake Victims

On June 3rd, 2008, BackgammonMasters, which offers different casino games like Backgammon has offered to match $5 for every $1 donated from a months worth of event buy-ins starting from $4.50 to $200.

Gamblers will join in backgammon events and even blackjack events where all of the prize money will be given directly to the UNICEF organization whose main goal is to assist the children victims of the earthquake in China. Backgammon decided to make the move in the spirit of brotherhood and goodwill that were started by companies like PokerStars who also offered to match dollar for dollar.

The Chief Executive of BackgammonMasters commented that it really does not matter how much companies give to the relief effort as long as they are doing their best to help and encourage people to donate as well. They also feel that this example of community outreach should be a common occurrence in the online casino industry.

Both backgammon and blackjack events will be available for the whole month so that any member that logs-in on the site from any location all over the world can begin immediately. Gamblers can also contribute winnings from other casino games to a donation account that has been made for each player by BackgammonMasters.
