ALEA’s Alexandre Tomic discusses recommendation engines: the complex set of algorithms that suggest slot titles to players that they will really enjoy and therefore keeping them engaged and entertained.

Miguel Quesada, business development and reactivation manager at online casino brand Mr Green, says Brazil has the potential to be the biggest regulated market in the world by tapping into its rich demographics and learning from the experiences of other jurisdictions.

There has been a great deal of speculation and conjecture over the past year about what the future holds for the gaming industry. Quite a bit of the dialogue has focused on changing consumer demographics and the broader impact of technology on leisure and socialization within environments such as casinos. Are slot machines an endangered species or will today’s 30 year olds eventually gravitate toward products that they have shown little interest in to date? Is it really a question of...

While a commissioner with the California Gambling Control Commission, I was on the distribution list for appointments made by the governor for the many boards, commissions, and like organizations throughout the state.

"There hasn't been anything new since poker" is a lazy way to look at the iGaming industry and one which fundamentally misunderstands how companies evolve in smaller ways day by day.
