SplashDot Speaks at GiGse 2012 on Building Effective Online Loyalty Programs

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2012) - SplashDot, leader in online loyalty programs and interactive, gamified promotions, announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Watson, will be speaking on two panels at the Global iGaming Summit & Expo in San Francisco on April 24-26, 2012. Watson will discuss how to seamlessly guide players back and forth between offline and online, while providing an immediate return on investment to land-based operators.

Watson has been advising the gaming industry on the importance of creating a continuous, loyal relationship with valued players since 1999. Under Watson's management, SplashDot has grown to become the expert in its field, having worked with 75% of Canada's gaming jurisdictions.

"Now that the U.S. Department of Justice has permitted online gaming, huge opportunities exist for operators," says Patrick Watson, Chief Executive Officer at SplashDot. "However, as Canadian gaming organizations discovered when they prepared for this transition, doing it right requires a lot of careful planning. We are excited to share our own experiences having lived through it with two of the three organizations that currently offer internet gaming in North America."

The Global iGaming Summit & Expo (GiGse) will be held at The Westin San Francisco Market Street on April 24-26, 2012.
