The Players Lounge

Welcome to The Players Lounge! This is the first section to check for breaking news on new games and new casinos. It's your place to learn about the development behind new titles, where you're likely to find the new games debut, and when your favorite operators plan to launch a new site. Players, operators, and regulators share some common interests in the online gambling sphere and this is another place those interests can overlap. But it is the players' lounge and the focus is on your interests.

Whether it's a new gamification model or promotional features built into games, new tech to make your gameplay more enjoyable, or where you might find your favorite lottery tickets available at an online casino, you'll find it here. You'll also find the latest progressive slots winners and relaunches of old favorite titles.

While most of the subject matter is online-oriented, we'll also let you know if land-based casinos are planning to go online, or if your local regulator plans to change the minimum gambling age. If it's something players need or want to know, you'll find it here.
