Casino and poker comps heat up in news media business


Casino and poker comps heat up in news media business - August 2009


Online casinos, traditional casinos and online poker and gaming rooms are battling for headlines, as the stakes continue to raise in the gaming and gambling world. Media companies such as ours are now associated with such brands such as PartyGaming, PartyCasino.com, Titan Poker, Titan Casino, Belle Rock Entertainment, JackpotCity.com, Virgin Games, Virgin Casino, PKR, Aspinalls Online Poker, Aspinalls Online Casino, 888.com, Pacific Poker, Boss Media, SlotsClub.com, CasinoClub.com, Casino Tropez, Europa Casino, Slotland, World Poker Tour, Casino Rewards, Captain Cooks Casino and Jamster.

As we approach September 2009 PartyGaming's PartyCasino.com, PartyPoker.com, Virgin Games, PKR, Casino Rewards, Captain Cooks Casino and World Poker Tour are setting the pace.

The Media Man Australia most improved new entry goes to CasinoClub.com.

As of this writing PartyGaming's PartyCasino.com is proving the most dominant in both overall popularity with players, media companies and celebrities.

Next month we expect big things from both Aspinall's and both Titan's casino and poker brands, and a major announcement from our friends at PartyGaming. We also expect SlotsClub.com, World Poker Tour and InterCasino.com to bounce back, and expect to see more bricks and mortar casinos close down, and Harrah's Entertainment to surge forward with their plans to ramp up online casino business ventures, taking advantage of their signing of former PartyGaming boss, Mitch Gerber. Some switched on celebrities and agents are showing the gaming and igaming industry more than just a little interest. Names to follow are Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Matt Damon, Pam Anderson and Mickey Rourke. No doubt these celebs have heard of the success of Australia's Shane Warne in and around professional poker circles, and the world will soon be thinking poker with the upcoming film flick, Poker King, said to be set to at last equal 'Rounders' in media saturation. In addition, recent media reports on New York based media baron, Mortimer Zuckerman (top brass at both Boston Properties, U.S. News, World Report and Daily News) suggest British, American and perhaps even Australian based newspapers could soon be pro actively bringing in revenue from the online gambling sector, starting in the popular and widely accepted sports betting division.

As the gaming and igaming industry continues to mature some constants remain. Customers and industry b2b practitioners value customer service, ethics, innovation and value for money. The more things change, the more things stay the same.
