6 February 2013 GPWA Times Newsletter

GPWA TIMES February 6, 2013
Latest GPWA Times Magazine available at ICE, LAC
In our latest cover story, Lorien Pilling says that consolidation is the name of the game, and that being more corporate doesn't necessarily mean being better. He then discusses some of the "growing pains" affiliates will have to endure as a result of the current flurry of mergers and acquisitions. And if you didn't make it to London, you can see the complete issue online now in our new flip book format!

Will Governor Christie approve or veto online gaming in the state of New Jersey?

What have you found to be the best type of landing page to send your traffic to? read more
