First off, was very happy that the Social Casino Gaming Summit held in the Bellagio was around the same time as World Series of Poker happening at the Rio. I got to do a bit of both these last few weeks, but looking back, might have been more strategic to do the ‘work-related’ events first, rather than at the end of the trip. For some reason, I dont sleep well in Vegas at all (even with all my little blue pills), but happy I feel rested once again (no place like home) before heading back to Vegas this week to play the rest of the WSOP series.
I want to quickly recap the Social Casino Gaming Summit 2013 while it was still fresh in my mind and share a few of my notes.
Social Casino Gaming Summit
The Social Casino Gaming Summit 2013 is the first social gaming conference I have ever been too. Even though I love networking and am a people person, I tend to shy away from these events as I find them a bit of a circle jerk (am I allowed to say that?) and pretentious. This event however, I found to be quite the contrary! This is probably due to the line-up of speakers, topics presented and delegates present.
Some speakers included: Frank Pracukowski of Foxwoods, Cary DiJulio of Big fish games, Nick Bogovich of GSN, Andy Choy of Riviera Casino, Charles Harper of Double Down Casino, Rich Roberts of Slingo, Eamoon Toland of Paddy Power NA, Mitch Garber of Caesars, Jamison Selby of Monkey King Games, Matthew Cullen of Rocket Play, Brock Pierce of Playsino
Some of the topics of interest included:
Big props to the organizer, Tom Sapsted for putting together such a great show and the MVP of the event goes to host speaker Joost Van Dreunen, founder of Superdata Research for making the event run smoothly and for guiding the event’s discussions. He was delightfully entertaining and informative.

OVERALL CLOSING COMMENTS
Josh Uguardo, President of SGN, gave me some really great advice at our lunch together. To succeed in this space you need ‘tenacity’! I couldn’t agree more. Lucky Lady Games is definitely on the right track and I am more excited than ever to keep moving forward & continue to strive to create the best cross-platform social casino games to be enjoyed by the world.
Until next time,
