There is a modern day Robin Hood living in Las Vegas, Nevada. He goes by the name of Robin Hood 702 (the area code for Las Vegas). The tale of Robin Hood is well known: stealing from the rich and providing to the poor. Meet Robin Hood 702, who does the same but with a Las Vegas twist.

A professional gambler, Robin Hood 702, will use his skills at the gambling tables to win large purses for families in desperate need of financial assistance. Just who is this gambler? Robin Hood chooses anonymity, as his goal is not self-promotion, but to help a needy family.

To that end, the Las Vegas Robin Hood has created a Website,, where those desiring help can submit their stories on why they should be helped. Once the family is selected, Robin Hood 702 will provide them an all expense trip to Las Vegas

The trip to Las Vegas will include round trip airfare, accommodations in a luxury suite on the Las Vegas Strip, complimentary meals, spa treatments, show tickets and much more. During their visit, Robin Hood, will head to a casino high limit gaming room, where he will attempt to win the necessary amount of money to pay off the families debt. If his attempt is unsuccessful, Robin Hood guarantees to pay off at least half of the debt.

Anyone in need of assistance should visit the Website to enter a video or written submission, and where the rules are posted. Submissions will be collected through the spring of 2010, and personally reviewed by Robin Hood. The deserving families will be notified personally by Robin Hood 702.
