PokerStars Launches Charity OptionPoker players are known for being generous with their wealth and top pros as well as poker sites tend to give their time and hard-earned money to worthy causes multiple times a year. One of the most popular events in the poker industry is the
Big One for One Drop, which is a major charity event. PokerStars is known as a top provider of online poker options and one organization that work hard to help those in need. The site recently announced a new feature which will allow members of the site to donate to charity.
In the VIP Store, players will now find a section that is devoted solely to charity. With the new option, players will be able to transfer loyalty points to cash that will go towards a charitable organization. Normally, players would have the option of using points for tournament entries or tournament cash but this helps players be generous to those in needs.
In the VIP Store, players will find the option of donating to Cancer Research UK and CARE International. Players can donate 1,200 loyalty points which will then be turned into $20 and donated to the partner charities. The site only offers these options currently but could be adding more charitable organizations in the near future.
The Rational Group commented on the recent addition to the VIP Store by stating:
“We know you guys and gals are very generous when it comes to charity and giving something back. You’ve proved that most recently when Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines and your donations helped hundreds of thousands of people fighting for survival. We want you to be able to give back when you want to now just when we ask you to help.” Players can get started turning FPPs into charitable cash by visiting PokerStars today and logging on.
