Playboy Poker has announced plans to close its cyber doors on July 27th, two years after it launched on the Ongame Network.
On 27 July 2015 Playboy Poker will cease to exist. The owners were there when the heart stopped beating and will stay with her until the brain is finally dead.
Playboy Poker opened for business in the summer of 2013. It promised big things, including a trip to the Playboy Mansion through a series of online events. Whilst the thought of cavorting with a bountiful selection of blonde boobs may have titillated poker player’s interests, it didn’t last long.
The online poker site opened on the Ongame Network and July 2006 Playmate of the Month: Sara Jean Underwood – the young blonde girl who seems to perpetually and disturbingly look about 14-years of age – was the site’s first big star.
According to PokerNews a Playboy Poker spokesperson – who may or may not have been a rabbit – told them that the reason for the closure was a ‘business decision.’ Players have until the July 27 deadline to withdraw their funds, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org beyond that date. All remaining funds will be forfeited after 30-days.
The Playboy brand was created by Hugh Hefner in 1953. By the time the flared trousers of the 1970s rolled into town Hefner was selling over 7 million copies of its magazine. Today, that number has settled at 5.6 million readers.
The brand has moved on from the days of pure porn. Today it is a multimedia behemoth with teenage children wearing the Playboy clothing line with pride. The brand got a recent kick in the polls when in the mid 2000s The Girls of the Playboy Mansion reality TV show made superstars of the likes of Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson, both of whom have recently released memoirs admitting that most of the girls had some sort of sexual relationship with Hefner and that he takes a lot of Viagra.
Give the man a hat tip.
Dan Bilzerian suffered two heart attacks through his misuses of Viagra and Hefner is still going strong at the age of 89. I recently read The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who’ve Lived the Longest by Dan Buettner. In it he releases the secrets of longevity including: walking in nature, displaying gratitude and eating a plant based diet.
Maybe ‘having sex with blonde Barbie dolls,’ will sneak into the revised edition?
