Okay, I'd mentioned in the second segment of my ICE+LAC-2014 report that we'd had lunch with a senior guy from Virtual/AceRevenue and that I'd write a little something about that. As it happens this is only the latest chapter in an ongoing story of our talks with these guys over the years: two years ago we had a similar sit-down. The outcome there was that we agreed to forward any player issues we received regarding Virtual's properties to them. The idea was that we'd keep track of the outcomes
Okay, LAC. Out at Earl's Court this year instead of Canary Wharf or whatever it was last year. Everyone seems to like Earl's court, the old ICE venue, and it was great to be back. Pubs and restros nearby, civilised transit connections, not too far from city central. Good stuff!
LAC itself has always seemed to me to be a tougher scene than ICE. More hard-sell, more sleeze, generally more of an in-your-face experience. This year more so than ever. Lots of young, attractive Eastern
Another year, another ICE + LAC trip to London. ICE was jinormous this year! Unconfirmed reports are that there were around 24,000 attendees and I believe it.

I am now into my 7th year of being the PAB guy at Casinomeister. Seven years of doing pretty much anything will, I think, give one the tendancy to start saying things like "that was a great year!" or "OMG! Shoot me now!" or suchlike. This past year of PABs has been good, and surprising in some ways, but mostly it's just been pretty exhausting and probably not for the obvious reasons.
Many people I talk to in the our business just shake their heads and say "man, I don't know how
As many of you already know Bryan and I attended the iGaming Super Show in Amsterdam a couple weeks ago. It was my first time in Amsterdam and what a lovely city it is! We were mostly in the old city which is literally built on canals: they're everywhere and give the place a very unique atmosphere. A very pleasant place to stroll around and discover all manner of good things. The iGaming show was interesting too, but we'll get to that.
Whenever I mention this trip I get waggly-eyebrow
