Online casino hopes to bring single players together
Online casino singletons could soon find themselves meeting their king or queen of hearts as an online casino and an online internet dating site join forces to host a series of events for lovelorn online casino gamers.
Starting this month, the online casino and online dating site are co-sponsoring a series of matchmaking events in the hopes of coupling-up online casino players, as well as encouraging new players to start gaming in online casinos. The events, hosted in venues across London as well as in online casinos, aim to help online casino players meet new partners.
In a quest to make a number of online casino couples, the online casino and online dating site are hosting a series of poker evenings in London over the coming months. Experienced online casino players will be on hand to offer a range of online poker advice for those without much experience in online casinos, while on the internet, the online casino plans to host a series of weekly singles poker nights.
A spokesperson for the event said it would allow online casino players to meet like-minded individuals. He said:
"Poker is a very social game and we know our players actively chat both in the game and on forums. We've seen romance bloom on our site and so partnering with an online dating site, that caters to young, outgoing professionals is perfect for us."
Although online dating is extremely popular in the UK - one online dating site attracts more than 6 million registered users - it is thought this is the first time an online casino has actively sought to encourage online casino coupling.
