Web Gaming Helps Land-Based Casinos
I was talking to renowned online and international gaming pundit Buzz
Daly at the first annual Bodog.com Handicapper Conference in Las Vegas,
and the subject of the effects of online wagering on the established
land-based gaming industry came up.
In fact, this subject continued to pop up during the entire
conference. In hindsight, this should not have been much of a surprise;
after all, we were holding the conference at the Mandalay Bay Resort and
Casino in Las Vegas, and we threw a big industry party at the hip Palms
Casino and Resort.
It became quite the hot topic at the party, as everyone was shocked
to see the omnipresent Bodog.com logo beamed up on the side of the Palms
Hotel tower all evening long. You could even see it from the strip (or
so I have been told).
Many of you are probably wondering why this event was even allowed to
take place in Vegas (of all places), given the prevailing position of
the U.S. government (and much of the media). Not surprisingly, when I
first proposed the idea of holding such a conference I was told that it
would never happen. But it did!
Some of the owners of these land-based casinos have also come to the
same conclusions as I have on what the true nature of the relationship
is between land-based casinos and online versions.
