GIBRALTAR, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

- JackpotCity.com, Australia's Favourite Online Casino, has Donated AU$5,000 to the Queensland Premier's Flood Relief Appeal

JackpotCity.com Online Casino http://www.jackpotcity.com/au/, one of Australia's favourite online gaming destinations, has created an Australian Flood Relief Fund to raise money for those Queenslanders affected by the January 2011 floods.

Staff at JackpotCity.com Online Casino didn't hesitate to donate from their own pockets and raised AU$2,170. To applaud their generosity, the casino management decided to double that amount and added a further AU$2,170 to the fund.

In addition to the funds raised by the staff and management at jackpotCity.com, the decision was made to contribute all proceeds from the January 2011 Boomerang Australian Pokies http://www.jackpotcity.com/au/online-pokies/ Tournament Series. This helped to raise a further $660 for our flood fund.

The funds collected by staff and players came to a total contribution of AU$5,000 and was donated to the Queensland Premier's Flood Relief Appeal. When asked why the casino staff were willing to donate money from their own pockets Claire Anderson, the JackpotCity.com Online Casino Promotions and Events Coordinator, had this to say:

"It is not just the fact that we here at JackpotCity.com employ a number of Australians, including myself, it is the fact that human tragedy transcends country borders. We wish all of our Australian and Queensland players all the best during this trying time and hope that the AU$5,000 can be put to good use."
