I.C.O.N. Network Launches Plan to Organize Independent Casinos With Hands Free Participation and Selects Gold Rush Poker as its Official Online Platform

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2011) - Anticipating the shut-down of illegal poker sites by the Federal Government followed by the eventual regulation of online gaming in America, I.C.O.N., the Independent Casino Online Network, today unveiled its vision for the future.

"The online poker market is now open to all casino owners," says Donn Gunvalson, I.C.O.N. Network Director. "It is no longer the exclusive territory of the larger casino groups. We are bringing together independent casinos and offering them the ability to share in our marketing campaigns and share in our profits."

The Independent Casino Online Network is promising to help casinos generate revenue while building their player base, increase exposure in print and on national television and host their own branded tournaments online. I.C.O.N. has selected Gold Rush Poker as its official poker site platform. Nominated for Poker Operator of the Year at the 2011 International Gaming Awards, Gold Rush Poker is 100% USA legal and is the first and only American-based 3D poker site.

"We are excited to be associated with another forward thinking company," says John George, CEO of Gold Rush Poker. "This partnership sets us up to be at the forefront of the future of American online gaming. By using our platform, casinos will be able to increase profit by tapping into our player base and strategic marketing campaigns. This is a great opportunity."

"With us, you will get maximum exposure," says Derrick Oliver, I.C.O.N. Project Manager. "It takes time and money to launch a network so what we're saying to casinos is 'Why concede profit to the large casino groups? Partner with us and we'll do the work for you."
