ChiliPoker Partners With GO Voyages
10/29/09 – Online poker operator ChiliPoker may be only three years old, but its ambitious management has taken it into several major deals. The most recent is a partnership agreement with GO Voyages to become the official partner for its new direct airline service from Paris to Las Vegas, operated by XL Airways, which will literally take off on 23 May 2010.
ChiliPoker is a downloadable poker room and casino using NetEnt and Playtech software; one of 3 online gaming sites owned by Mediarex International.
GO Voyages has revealed that there will be twice weekly flights departing from Paris Charles de Gaulle, on Thursdays and Sundays, leaving room for short trips of 3 or 4 days as well as stays of a week, 10 days or longer. The departure and arrival timetables mean that travellers from all over Europe can travel to the thrills and lights of Las Vegas, establishing Paris as a direct European gateway to the gambling mecca.
ChiliPoker is installing a free VIP counter in Las Vegas for all its European customers, offering a dedicated multilingual team to assist poker players plan their Las Vegas break, with reservations for restaurants, shows or limousines, or visits to surrounding places of interest.
"Las Vegas is one of those destinations people dream of, but which appear inaccessible. As an online poker site we felt it appropriate to offer an answer to these dreams by offering all non-English speaking Europeans, and in particular the French, a chance to enjoy a unique experience," said Alexandre Dreyfus, the French founder of ChiliPoker.com this week.
"We hope that with the future regulation of the online gaming market in France, which is set to become effective before 23 May 2010, ChiliPoker can occupy a significant place in this new market. From now on, Las Vegas will form an integral part of our marketing strategy in Europe for 2010."
To celebrate the agreement, ChiliPoker will refund Euros 75 to all ChiliPoker.com account holders for each ticket reserved between 15 November and 31 December 2009
