The largest bingo trade and conference show, Bingo World 2009 kicks off on the 3rd March 2009 at the Riviera Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas and runs until 4th March.
Bingo software giant Parlay Entertainment , the brains behind over 100 online bingo sites including; Paddy Power Bingo, Yahoo Games, Littlewoods Bingo, Ann Summers Bingo and Bingo Mania is both an official sponsor and an exhibitor at Bingo World. Parlay Entertainment are certainly doing the rounds right now, after only recently exhibiting at the International Casino exhibition (ICE) at London’s Earls Court Exhibition Centre at the end of January. Industry stalwart and online bingo champion Parlay Entertainment, are always a popular exhibitor, and this year Scott White the President and CEO of Parlay will be a guest speaker on the subject of Bingo and in particular online bingo and the internet. Clearly Mr White will have much to contribute to this subject as Parlay Entertainment were behind the first ever online bingo site launched over ten years ago.
Bingo and the Internet conference will be a special three session conference programme, featuring a session on worldwide online bingo operations, the second session will feature the legal minefield of internet gaming legislation in the United States and the final session will cover land based bingo halls and ways to maximise their internet exposure.
There is much speculation that things may be changing shortly with regards to the legality of online gaming in the United States. This exhibition and conference is therefore critical for the online gaming industry, as without doubt should the laws change in America the market will benefit from rapid and marked growth, the like of which has never been seen before. It is essential therefore that the European bingo and gaming industry keep a watchful eye on developments as any changes could affect future revenues quite dramatically.
