Belle Rock Gaming's leading casino brand, the River Belle Online Casinos, is currently sponsoring the Maui Jim Hawaii Marlin Tournament Series taking place at the Honokohau Boat Harbor on, you guessed it, the island of Maui. And that's not all: the River Belle online casinos site is also sponsoring a boat and professional fishing crew taking part in a contest that awards cash prizes to the team that brings in the biggest fish in various categories. River Belle is also offering outdoor enthusiasts a chance to win an all-expense paid African safari for two valued at over $10,000. The 2005 Maui Jim Hawaii Marline Tournament Series started on June 23rd and is set to last through November with tournaments happening on a monthly basis and coverage being provided to those not on the Hawaiian islands courtesy of the Outdoor Life Network on OLN's "Pacific Expeditions".
"Belle Rock Gaming is pleased to be part of an event that demonstrates the spirit of sportsmanship and teamwork," said Tim Johnson, Chief Executive of Carmen Media Group, owner of Belle Rock Gaming. "We recognize the tremendous skill involved with big game fishing tournaments and see many parallels between the thrill of pursuing a big catch in the Maui Jim Hawaii Marlin Tournament Series for cash prizes and the excitement offered on our various online casinos sites."
Online casinos sites are becoming more well known, it seems, for the events that they sponsor than for the online casinos games they provide. Some would say this is just good marketing for the online casinos, others would say that it shows how legitimate the businesses are becoming as they branch out from being simply online gambling sites into respected sponsors of tournaments that are not necessarily gambling related. The River Belle online casinos site is just one more example of how the online gambling industry is making its presence felt far beyond the internet.
