The GREAT Million Dollar Candidate

Mark Wayman, Founder and CEO of the executive placement firm The Foundation, LLC discusses executive recruitment

My name is Mark Wayman, and my 15 minutes of fame was two software companies. One went public on the NASDAQ and the other (counter-terrorism software) was acquired by IBM. For the last ten years I have owned an Executive Recruiting firm focused on gaming and high tech. Compensation starts at $100,000, and last year I placed eight executives north of a million dollars.

Why Every Casino Business Should Have One. Rick Campbell

Part 1 & 2

Social Media Policy is a broad topic and to cover most of the specifics this article is written in two parts. The second part of this article will appear in the next issue.

There are a few casino properties that have taken the time to create a social media policy. Some, not all, casino properties that have created a social media policy have written a social media policy that is poor.

What Makes Slot Machines So Addictive?

Slot machines have been around for quite some time now. The story begins back in the 20th century when The Liberty Bell Machine was presented as the world’s first slot machine.

Players seem to love these seemingly simple games and they can’t stop spinning the reels that every now and then treat them with mouth watering prizes. Hence, the question that many people ask themselves is: “What makes slot machines so addictive?”
