Aussie flood relief receives another A$5 000
Gibraltar-based Jackpot City.com, part of the Carmen Media Group, made a very humane move this week when they donated A$5 000 to help victims of the recent Australian floods. The casino staff donated an initial A$2,170, and casino management doubled that amount.
In addition to the staff donation, JackpotCity.com decided to contribute all proceeds from the casino’s January 2011 Boomerang Australian Pokies Series, which led to another $660 for the flood fund.
The casino recently formed an Australian Flood Relief Fund, whose aim is to raise money for the Queenslanders affected by the January floods. They sent the donation to the Queensland Premier's Flood Relief Appeal.
The casino spokesperson Claire Anderson commented: "It is not just the fact that we here at JackpotCity.com employ a number of Australians, including myself, it is that human tragedy transcends country borders. We wish all of our Australian and Queensland players all the best during this trying time."
