National Lampoon Opens Internet Poker Site
December 2, 2008 (InfoPowa News) — New York-listed National Lampoon, Inc., a widely recognized brand in comedy, has announced the launch of National Lampoon Casino.com, bringing some of the most established names from the world of poker and Internet gaming together in one entertainment venue. In addition to offering access to multiple poker engines and non-stop tournament formats, the National Lampoon Casino will offer access to other games of skill, such as trivia challenges and financial market competitions.
The company assures players that its operations are one hundred percent legal, organized on the ClubWPT concept of subscription-based membership which circumvents any U.S. laws against online poker.
National Lampoon, Inc. and Poker Face, LLC have teamed up on the Internet to offer online gaming, offering Texas Hold 'Em, blackjack and other games and services that include consumer goods and travel.
Mark Songer, CEO of Poker Face LLC, said, "We wanted to create an atmosphere that could stand up to the test of time and quality of the National Lampoon brand, and the only way to execute on that plan was to partner with the best in gaming, like The World Poker Tour and the National League of Poker, as well as our other respected affiliate partners. Our plan is to offer our visitors the excitement and feel of Vegas, while adding something we all need in this economic time, some fun and games mixed with a splash of humor."
National Lampoon Casino.com will become an affiliate of the National Lampoon Humor Network, part of the company's growing online media business. The company has built a number of niche, targeted online advertising networks, offering advertisers targeted online distribution platforms to reach their consumers and demographic. National Lampoon currently has two networks in addition to the Humor Network: the Drunk University Network, focused strongly on the college audience; and The Zaz Network, a female focused network of humor and celebrity websites.
National Lampoon, Inc. has been active in U.S. comedy for almost 40 years, and is currently involved in a diversity of media and entertainment segments. These include feature films, television programming, online and interactive entertainment, home video, audio, and book publishing. The brand reaches nearly one in four of all 18- to 24-year-old college students in America and has three core operating divisions: National Lampoon Films; College Marketing Division; and National Lampoon Networks.
