Darvin Moon Pimping Wheeling Island Casino

by , Nov 9, 2009 | 1:07 pm

It’s pretty safe to assume that Darvin Moon didn’t get the memo that complementary promotion of the NFL goes against the ways of the pay-for-play online sites. However, it is not clear if his donning of attire for his local card room came at a cost. Check it out … though I didn’t see this yesterday, he’s clearly getting some good logo placement for the Wheeling Island Casino in Wheeling, West Virginia:

We’ll see if we can’t find out what sorta deal is in place there if any, or if this is just a friendly gesture to the card room where he won his seat into the WSOP. Regardless though, it does make you wonder why sponsorships from the likes of The Venetian, Caesar’s, Bellagio, and other B&M card rooms have yet to come in play.

Beyond being the alligator on Darvin Moon’s Izod, here’s what we do know about the place, via the ThePokerAtlas:

Even though this room has only 20 some tables it is very nice. Great staff and friendly folks. This is a “MUST PLAY” room if you’re in the area. The casino is upscale (you might think you’re in Vegas) with good action. This is the ‘Best Kept Secret’ of West Virginia !!!

    Since he was wearing a Wheeling Island shirt in July, I think he either bought that shirt or Wheeling Island gave it to him.

    If he was sponsored by Wheeling Island, you’d think they’d throw up his picture on their website.

    LOL at everything about Wheeling Island. Shithole is a good description. Will probably go out of business if the slot parlor in Washington, PA gets live poker and table games.
