Global Gaming Expo
I am back from the Global Interactive Gaming Summit and Expo in Montreal. A nice client of mine gave me first class upgrades on United Airlines. Considering I was flying first class I was rather disappointed. The food seemed like the same quality you would expect in coach. Compared to the first class service I got on Delta from New York to Nice last year United was not even close. There was also no first class lounge for me to kill three hours while laying over in Chicago.
The hotel I stayed at was the Travelodge. Although there was a screw up with the reservations I made through hotels.com the location was great and the price averaging $106 US was reasonable. The rooms are small and simple but for one person you don't need much more.
This was the first major Internet gaming show I attended in three years so it was fun seeing all the old faces again. As usual I enjoyed the restaurants, casino, and golf with other industry people including from Winner Online, Casino Meister, and Got2Bet. Bryan Bailey of Casino Meister has a nice write up about the trip on his newsletter. Bryan also posted photos. I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the one of me. It was taken at a very loud party thrown by the Gambling Federation and in the interests of not losing my hearing I covered my ears.
The big event of the week was winning a 5-day Caribbean Cruise from Casino Pays in a drawing. I haven't actually received it yet but look forward to getting some tickets in my hand. My next vacation is a family trip to the big island of Hawaii in July.
