Ellen DeGeneres deals blackjack for a good cause
Casino games are great ways for gamblers to have fun but they are also good when it comes to raising money for charity. Many charitable organizations, sports teams, celebrities, etc, use casino games to raise money for their favorite charities. The most recent instance of casino games being used to raise money for a good cause comes from Ellen DeGeneres.

Ellen recently visited the Palms Hotel located in Las Vegas, Nevada to learn how to become a dealer in blackjack. Ellen took to the Playboy Casino to learn the basics of the game. During the trip, Ellen took a tour of the hotel and hung out with the Playboy bunnies at the casino.

Ellen was learning how to deal blackjack and visiting the casino to raise money for Farm Sanctuary and The Gentle Barn. Both organizations work for animal rights to try and find safe places for farm animals to live. Ellen has worked with these groups before and has raised tens of thousands of dollars for the charities.

Ellen showed footage on her talk show recently of her blackjack dealing experience and it was quite humorous. She donned a black pair of playboy bunny ears to go along with her dealer outfit, though she didnít wear the full bunny costume. She dealt cards to customers who wanted to play blackjack and cut up quite a bit with the patrons.

At one point, Ellen even brought out an abacus to figure payouts! Ellen is quite the character and used her humor and celebrity to raise money for two good causes. She not only gave the farm animals a chance at a good life but she gave casino patrons a nice night out at the Playboy Casino.
