San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2006
Haunted Poker – http://www.hauntedpoker.com - launched this month and brings with it an original concept: a site dedicated to true hauntings at casinos worldwide. The site compiles an updated database of casinos and cardrooms that are, supposedly, hotspots for paranormal activity.
Each location is reviewed by the site and provides specific details about the hauntings as well as their possible origins. Paranormal hotspots include Las Vegas locations such as the Luxor and the Tropicana. Haunted Poker also contains a directory of haunted places for travelers curious to visit where the other side still calls home.
Joshua Heilpern, who already runs http://www.beatthefish.com , co-created the site with contributions from girlfriend Rachel Muenkel.
When asked to comment on the site, Heilpern told us, "There are a lot of poker informational sites out there these days that all look the same. We wanted to do something different and create a website with an original look and feel. Plus, researching haunted places is just something we enjoy, anyway."
Besides features about haunted casinos, the site provides lengthy reviews of various online poker rooms. Other sections include poker strategy articles, poker news, tournament listings, and a forum to discuss both the paranormal and poker world. Haunted Poker's visual theme includes muted colors and graphics fit for a haunted house.
The site has also teamed with online poker room Titan Poker to bring new customers a $2,000 freeroll poker tournament. This event will be limited to Haunted Poker visitors who create new accounts and make their first deposit with bonus code “titan2k”. See the Haunted Poker website for more details.
Overall, this unique website seems dedicated to reminding the public that there is more to the gaming world than glitzy lights, poker tables, and slot machines.
Quoting Miss Muenkel, "Millions of tourists step foot in these casinos every year without realizing what is beneath the surface. We hope to feed paranormal newcomer's curiosity while still exposing ghost hunters to some lesser known haunted locations."
