Betting and Gaming industry reaction (and opinion) to the Trump win.

So – what’s the betting & gaming industry’s initial reaction to the news that Donald Trump is the President elect?

Great infographic on Social CRM

CRM has evolved. In particular for the egaming industry. People are still struggling with working out the ROI for social network based activity. And it’s not good.

Green buttons. Coming soon to a website near you. I bet.

Slightly random post this, as I was looking at a beta version of a new product vertical that we’re launching on Monday. Where have all the green buttons come from?

It’s not all champange supernovas and money-pit online marketing.

It’s not all champange supernovas and money-pit online marketing in the online gambling/gaming business. For every high-profile brand that’s splashed over the front and back pages of your local media – there’s many other online gambling businesses that (while household names in their own territories) aren’t as well known on the world stage.

Microgaming announced today that its pulling its software from US facing operators and the US market “for the time being”. They’ve driven the online casino market for many years now, and I’ve recently had a commercial presentation from them, when looking at some of their products.
