The Supreme Court just essentially legalized sports gambling in the United States.

By Jerry Epstein, CEO

On Monday, May 14th, the Supreme Court struck down a 1992 federal law that effectively banned commercial sports betting in most states, opening the door to legalizing the estimated $150 billion in illegal wagers on professional and amateur sports that Americans make every year. In writing for the majority in the 6-3 decision, Chief Justice Samuel Alito stated, “Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each State is free to act on its own. Our job is to interpret the law Congress has enacted and decide whether it is consistent with the Constitution. PASPA is not.”

Thanks to SCOTUS, sports betting is legal and scorching hot.

By Jerry Epstein, CEO

Unless you’ve been under the proverbial rock or in the Himalayas on an epic quest for enlightenment from a spiritual guru the last three months, I’m doing my best Captain Obvious impersonation when I say that sports gambling is the hottest thing to hit the casino market in recent memory. This is true even for casinos located in state’s that haven’t approved it yet. The folks at G2E are predicting that this year’s event will be their biggest year ever in attendance thanks to – you guessed it – sports gambling.

“Welcome Back” – Using Gamification to Actively Engage Employees and Increase Profitability

By Jerry Epstein, CEO

Have you ever passed an employee doing their job and was not completely satisfied with their performance? At that moment many of us might think how nice it would be to have the time to tutor our employees on a regular basis. Yet, with so much on our plates there is barely time to get everything done – let alone teach others about our culture, customer service, compliance and even what is happening on our floor, so they can be of greater value to our guests.

“Welcome Back!” – Using Gamification to Re-Engage with Dormant Customers

By Jerry Epstein, CEO

Customer reactivation is one of the bigger challenges casino marketing professionals face, as traditional marketing efforts continue to prove the law of diminishing return. This is especially true for smaller, tribal properties that can be in somewhat remote locations.

Raving Next and REACH 30 – Creating an Effective and Fun Digital Engagement 100-Yard Dash

By Jerry Epstein, CEO

In the months leading up to the 20th Annual Raving Next Conference, the team here at Engaged Nation had been noticing a trend developing from our conversations with current and potential casino clients. Many small or midsized regional tribal casinos were experiencing greater difficulty generating awareness, interest and participation in their monthly on-floor promotions.

Celebrating 10 Years of Innovation

By Jerry Epstein, CEO

Ten years ago, my partner, gaming visionary owner and operator Bill Paulos, and I established a new marketing concept for his casinos – Gamification. Given that word was not even recognized in any dictionary before 2011, we stand proud as digital marketing pioneers and the inventors of gamified marketing for the casino industry. It was a revolutionary concept then and we are proud of the fact that we continue to innovate and evolve our REACH System…now in v.10.7.
