Online Casino Helps with Tsunami Humanitarian Crisis - Saturday 12th of March 2005

The recent humanitarian crisis in South East Asia has sparked a serge of humanitarian aid and donations worldwide. The online casino industry is also doing its part. Next Generation Entertainment and Winward Casino Group are donating 100% of the revenues generated this January 5th from all of their online casinos to the International Red Cross. This is just one example of how an online casino can put the well-being of others ahead of its own profits. We hope this is the first in a trend of generosity on the part of online casinos willing to help out during this time of humanitarian crisis.

Next Generation Entertainment and Winward Casino Group are very concerned for the people that have been affected by the earthquake and subsequent Tsunami. So much so that they intend to donate 100% of all profits generated on January 5th, coming in from all their online casinos, to the International Red Cross. This kind of generosity is what puts people ahead of profits. Hopefully this commendable act on the part of this online casino will start a trend among other reputable online casinos.

The devastation caused in numerous Asian countries has cased a huge humanitarian crisis and a need for external aid. The following Next Generation and Winward Casino Group websites will be donating 100% of their profits on January 5th: Winwardcasino.com WorldwideVegas.com, Bingohall.com, BingoPalace.com, OnlineBingo.com, and Vicsbingo.com. These online casinos usually generate around $100,000 on any given day in the middle of the week. The International Red Cross has been chosen as the organization designated to receive the donation they have asked specifically that 100% of the donation be given directly to the Tsunami Victims relief fund.

Next Generation and Winward Casino Group are separately owned gaming companies that have decided to work together during this time of crisis. "We teamed together with Winward Casino Group because we felt that as an Industry we should all come together and do our part," stated Andrew Truman, CEO of Next Generation Entertainment. "We have done many charitable events with Next Generation in the past and wish more online casinos would give back to the world community," stated Jon Ramsey, President of Winward Casino Group. "We are seeing Sports book's like VIP sports and others come together. It is a small act of kindness and charity, that makes for a miracle, for someone in need, stated Jon."
