DraftKings CEO Jason Robins to Deliver Keynote Address at Indian Country Online: The 2015 Congress

PALA, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 31, 2015) - DraftKings CEO Jason Robins will deliver the Luncheon Keynote Address at the third annual Indian Country Online Congress on June 11, 2015, at Pala Casino Spa Resort.

An avid sports fan, Robins started the company in 2011 with hopes of creating a forum that allowed the public more options when playing their fantasy sports games.

"As new entertainment options become popular, it's important for Indian Country to consider them as part of their opportunity for growth," said Victor Rocha, owner and operator of Pechanga.net, co-producer of Indian Country Online Congress. "Daily fantasy sports represents one such opportunity, and we are thrilled to have Jason Robins participating at Indian Country Online to share his story."

  • iSkill/iSocial - How should skill and social games become an important part of the online engagement strategy?
  • iFantasy - Do fantasy sports make sense for casinos, and what implications does this new online wagering industry have for Indian Country?
  • iStrategy - How can Indian Country utilize the Internet for more than just gaming and to ideate a multi-channel engagement strategy?
