Will you be in Las Vegas for G2E this year?
There is finally a real conference and exhibition in the U.S. that includes an iGaming focus at G2E in Las Vegas in November. Early indications are that this event will see the largest gathering in the States of folks interested in iGaming in a very long time. So, for this week's poll, we thought it would be interesting to ask how many folks plan to be in Las Vegas for the conference.

New MessageAffiliates and iPhone applications
LiveCasinoPartners writes:
SuperCasino has developed an iPhone app that claims to be the first approved gambling related application. I think that product development is fantastic and I give kudos to SuperCasino for bringing live games to even more users. They are help creating a "live casino" market that's positive for everyone, even our program. The only issue or concern I have is that the app is available on iTunes and not through affiliates. Affiliates are effectively taken out of the equation in the revenue stream. This could lead many operators to develop apps due to this reason alone. read more
