The charity league sponsorship program has been recently announced by Flop2River.com. The idea of the program sprang from a customer in Chicago area who was creating a business focused on creating poker tournaments for charities on their local area.
“The premise behind the program is to help new charity leagues procure the correct equipment up front for the charity event”. To give back to charities, larger leagues can qualify for the “Final Table” sponsorship – the final and most interesting part of the program.
With the help of the program, new organizations can make sure that their equipment is properly marked and reliable; everything is properly assembled and shipped.
“We’ve spent a lot of time searching for quality manufacturers who can produce quality poker tables at a price that works for large event planners. It also feels great to be able to give something back to charities as well in the form of final table sponsorship. It’s my favorite part of our business”, said Geoffrey F. Moore, managing partner of Flop2River.com.
By the way, pictures of the poker tables used for the final table sponsorship can be found at Flop2River.com.

A TV campaign launched by William Hill has been banned by the UK advertising regulator.
The TV ad promoting the company’s online bingo featured a woman who hurried her husband to work by winding the clock forward. As soon as the man was out the door, the woman hurried to log onto William Hill bingo. The woman continued to play online bingo and moved the hands of the clock back saying: “Doesn’t time fly?”
The ad was banned by the Advertising Standards Authority on the grounds that it portrayed and condoned gambling behaviour that was socially irresponsible. Moreover, the ASA received seven complaints, in which viewers objected that the ad was harmful because it “depicted someone who was addicted to gambling and was attempting to hide that from their family by deception”.
William Hill didn’t agree saying that the ad had a humorous look and didn’t potray socially irresponsible behavior.
With online gambling getting more popular, many countries have come to the decision to remove their anti casino gambling laws and replace them with gambling regulation. Ireland is not an exception.
Dermot Ahern, the newly appointed Minister for Justice, Equity and Law Reform thinks the casino gambling laws have “past they sell-by date”. In Ahern’s opinion, it is becoming impossible to outlaw casino gambling sites entirely. So, proper regulation is required. But the minister is not going to act hurriedly. First, he feels there is need “to consult with the public and develop cross-party agreement”.
A Casino Regulatory Committee has already produced a report on online casino gambling, though it has not been released yet and there have been no plans made for the regulation of online casino gambling.
France is reported to start issuing authorization for online betting operators from the second half of 2009. The decision followed the meeting between Budget Minister Eric Woerth and International Market Commissioner Charlie McCreevy where they discussed proposals that would avert court action against France by the EU over restrictions on online gambling.
Whether legal proceeding will be suspended, it’s not clear yet. The French government should send detailed provisions to EU authorities. To notice, the share of revenues from the gambling sector has been put at 5.3 billion euros ($8.27 billion).
“Regarding horse racing, only parimutuel betting will be allowed,” Woerth said. The term “pari-mutuel” refers to the system in which the total sum bet on a race is placed in a pool and the final prize is not set until all bets are placed.
“For other forms of sports betting, we will hold discussions with leagues and federations. There, we will not have parimutuel betting but fixed odds betting,” he said. (Fixed odds betting is a system in which the prize is agreed before bets are placed.). Woerth added: “We also want to open up casino games like poker but also roulette or black jack.
Woerth said: “Licenses would require minors to be prevented from betting and would contain strong protection for gamblers given the risk of addiction, as well as restrictions on advertising and controls against money laundering”.
