Cake Poker Network adds site with philanthropic twist
The Cake Poker Network has found yet another partner to add to its ever changing poker network of over 75 online poker rooms, this time with a site that has interesting on helping the endangered Red Panda species, and aptly named Red Panda Poker.
We’ve seen Rake-Free poker rooms, Hollywood-themed rooms, and countless other “innovative?” ideas to draw traffic to their sites, but this is by far the first time I’ve seen a poker room try to appeal to poker players sense of altruism –even though poker players are more than willing to donate to charities this is an entirely new angle for an online poker site to take.
According to the Red Panda Poker site:
For every hand of poker played on our site, we make a donation to protect the red panda, which is in serious danger of becoming extinct.
The red panda is a rare and beautiful animal that is regarded as a symbol of good luck in parts of Asia. The species is often referred to as the “lesser panda” in deference to the better-known giant panda.
Red pandas live only in temperate forests in the foothills of the Himalayas. Few people outside its native habitat have even heard of the red panda, let alone seen one.
We work with The Red Panda Network, which is committed to the conservation of wild red pandas and their habitat through the education and empowerment of local communities.
Other popular poker rooms on the Cake Poker Network include the eponymous Cake Poker as well as Unabomber Poker.
