Pokerstars/Full Tilt Extend Partnership with Right to Play Charity

Internet poker brands Pokerstars and Full Tilt have announced that they have extended their partnership with the Right to Play charity that uses sports and games to do good for children throughout the world.

The collaboration will go on for an additional year and see the groups give £300,000 to the charity, which will go to train 2,500 coaches. The groups' owner Amaya Gaming funds the program through their Helping Hands charity.

A corporate statement on the drive revealed that players can also contribute via the PokerStars VIP store, noting: "For every 1,200 FPPs donated by a player, PokerStars will make a $20 donation to the charity."

The company also announced that they will support the charity through various tournaments, including the PokerStars' European Poker Tour.
