bwin Celebrates Eden Hazard Poker Series with Donation to One Drop
Following the completion of bwin’s recent Hazard Series, the poker series fronted by Belgium World Cup phenomenon, Eden Hazard, bwin is delighted to announce that it has raised €50,000 for One Drop, the charity that works in 14 countries around the world, to provide life-changing access to safe water and sanitation.
bwin poker players were invited to Change the Game via the Hazard Series, by entering freeroll qualifier tournaments for the UK Poker Millions held earlier this year. For every entry into the series, bwin made a donation to One Drop on the player’s behalf.
Commenting on Series, Eden Hazard said: “I was excited to be involved in the Hazard Series with bwin. I love poker and the unique mental challenges it poses. More importantly, it’s great that through the Hazard Series, bwin has supported such a vital charity as One Drop.”
Alexandre Meunier, Senior Director of Special Initiatives of One Drop, said: “Thank you to bwin for supporting our mission to provide safe water and sanitation to the most vulnerable communities around the world. Receiving support from an international partner such as bwin brings much needed funds to the sector and helps to drive awareness of the global water and sanitation crisis. Once again the poker community has demonstrated its commitment towards achieving universal and equitable access to safe water for all by 2030.”
Adam Lewis, Chief Marketing Officer at bwin added: “We are immensely proud to support One Drop and the incredible work they do. With the Hazard Series we created something special for our players who were able to show their support for a fantastic cause while enjoying the best poker product of any sportsbook in the market.”
