It’s a full house for the poker and gaming industry: Context Networks recently signed a multi-year publisher agreement with Play Globally, Inc., which operates the Poker Racebook and Poker Sportsbook, to manage all advertising and sponsored tournaments on the Poker Sportsbook mobile app for select casinos and other jurisdictions.
Recognizing that the gaming world lacks multi-faceted digital advertising solutions to integrate display advertising, location services, special offers, facial recognition and augmented reality, Context Networks created its Contextual Promotions Media Network to deliver analytics with deep insights, enhancing outreach through blockchain, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Play Globally utilizes their unique intellectual property to connect gaming, sports and racing with the potential to win $1 million poker jackpot at each event.
