Charity Recognition Award
The online gaming business is a wealthy industry for anyone to be in. Despite the wealth, not everyone involved is interested in contributing to those who are less fortunate. We feel that online gaming companies that do donate time and money towards charity organizations don't get the recognition that they deserve. This award is meant to recognize those companies that go above and beyond the call of duty for their charity contributions in 2011.
Over the years bodog has been one of the consistent gaming companies to start their own charity projects. In February 2011 Calvin Ayre opened the P.A.N.A.R.E Adult handicap hospital and children's school in Costa Rica.
Aside from processing affiliate payments all the time, Neteller is always active when it comes to participating in charity projects. This year the team at Optimal Payments raised over $11,000 for Movember.
This company is always active in participating in charity projects as well as donating. They have been participating in Movember since 2008 both raising money and donating. This year they raised over $11,000.
