About exists because we believe even the online casino industry can have a positive impact in the world. Gambling generates tremendous revenues and if only parts of these got donated to charity instead of hidden in tax heavens it would help the world to be a better place. We collaborate with New Jersey online casinos like Ocean Casino, Tropicana, 888 Casino and Stardust Casino and with Swedish online casinos like MrVegas, Jalla Casino, Storspelare and Videoslots . We work to get both the casinos themselves, as well as their owners to think more about positive impact. The online casino industry in itself is not going anywhere. Gambling has been around since roman times. So if it’s going to be here, the least we can do is to make the best out of it! We have already made a lot of progress, and plenty more is to come!
