Casino Lunch Appoints Matt Takeno as Head of Gaming

OrientPlay Ltd. brings Matt Takeno on board to manage their online gaming brands

Valetta, Malta, February 20, 2011 – OrientPlay Ltd., an online gaming platform provider, is pleased to announce the appointment of Matt Takeno as the Head of Gaming for both of their premium in-house brands Casino Lunch, and Apple Pie Poker.

Matt Takeno is a distinguished industry professional, having been involved in numerous illustrious projects throughout his career including managing the gaming operations for a renowned French stand-alone poker network. Leading up to the launch of Apple Pie Poker and the revamped Casino Lunch website, Matt has been a key consultant in shaping the games portfolio and branding, and is now fully engaged, heading gaming operations for OrientPlay Ltd.

Matt offered the following in light of his recent appointment; “I’m very excited to be exerting my energy full time to this project. It is an honour not only to be able to provide a world class casino platform, but to be one of the only operators on the internet to offer a multi-room poker offering. We are already garnering positive feedback from both our players and operators. I am also especially delighted with the positive responses we have received from both our prospective and existing operators who remain fascinated with our evolving games portfolio, back office malleability, and our technical capacity.”

Working closely with all of OrientPlay’s internal teams and prospective operators on a daily basis, Matt has been integral in everything from forming the games portfolio, the bonus engine, VIP coordination, and even the art direction. “To be frank, managing games operations for both our own brands and the brands of our existing operators is tough, but extremely rewarding” says Matt. “With most brands, there exists a gap between operators and their respective clients with respect to what games are currently offered and what the clientele desires; malleability of the current offering and the evolution of the portfolio are often at odds with the technical feasibility and priority of most brands. However, one of the great benefits of working with and building the portfolio and branding of our current and prospective operators is that we can close this gap further than what most other established brands can cater to. We consider ourselves lucky that our partners have strong vision, foresight, and communication with their customers so that we can provide exactly the games portfolio they require meet their needs If you want to create your own slot machines with your customised graphics, we’re more than happy to oblige!”

So what does the future hold for OrientPlay Ltd. and their players? Matt offers the following: “This week, we’ll be launching the revamped and rebranded Casino Lunch website.

We’re pulling out all the stops, and we are very excited by the updated graphics and branding. We’re also launching our Apple Pie Poker site, which will be launching with the Everleaf poker room, and we’ll be going live with both the Cake and Enet poker networks soon thereafter. Our players have expressed their enthusiasm with our poker offering, and they’ll be able to benefit from all of the tournaments hosted on these networks. I invite everyone to visit both of our brands, and I’m sure that you’ll be captivated by the classy feel and the tongue-in-cheek humour of both Casino Lunch and Apple Pie Poker respectively.”

Both the casino and the pending new poker operations are fully licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) in Malta, a recognized and respected online gaming licensing regulatory body. Casino Lunch provides online casino gaming to players from all countries except the U.S.

AAA welcomes pro-alternative article by investing expert

A recent article by City Commodities investment manager, Dan Fox, written in myfinances.co.uk, has been welcomed by AAA.

Boston, MA, USA, February 20, 2012 — A recent article by City Commodities investment manager, Dan Fox, written in myfinances.co.uk, has been welcomed by Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).

AAA is an alternative investment advocacy group and its analysis partner, Anthony Johnson claims that Mr Fox’s article highlights some very important benefits of alternative investments. Mr Fox claimed that most investors would enjoy the process of investing in alternative assets more than traditional stocks and shares.

Mr Fox explained that the process of investing in ethical causes is also rewarding in a way that investing in faceless corporations will never be. He talked about how the carbon credits markets will heat up at the end of the year when the Kyoto agreement expires. He said, “The expiration of this agreement will see a large rise in Voluntary Emissions Reductions (VERs) which are a type of credit that fall outside the guidelines and obligations of Kyoto, and thus open up a wider range of initiatives designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

Mr Johnson also points out Mr Fox’s assertion that alternative assets are more tangible and exciting that equities. AAA support investment in forestry as an excellent way to bring in strong returns while helping to increase CO2 absorption the protection and increase of forested land. An example is Greenwood Management‘s plantation scheme in Brazil, which allows investors to buy up sections of plantation land with all investors receiving returns based on the sustainable felling of trees after they have grown.

Mr Fox also talked about the satisfaction involved with spotting a great alternative asset class, which may even reflect one’s own interests, such as wine, rare coins or stamps or even designer clothing. Mr Fox explained, “Many people invest in fine wines and enjoy the excitement of building up an eclectic cellar as much as they do making money on it.”

The remit of Alternative Asset Analysis is to analyse and provide news on the global performance of a wide range of alternative asset classes including, but not restricted to, commodities, real estate, forestry, foreign exchange, hedge funds, private equity and venture capital.

Phoenix 12th Annual Sportsmen’s Expo to Host First-Ever Gathering of the Tribes and Hunting the Rez Auction

Hunters and outdoor-sports enthusiasts will have a chance to bid on art pieces and hunting and fishing packages–some fetching perhaps six figures–at the “First Annual Indian Country Big Game Auction.”

Glendale, AZ, February 20, 2012 – Hunters and outdoor-sports enthusiasts will have a chance to bid on art pieces and hunting and fishing packages–some fetching perhaps six figures–at the “First Annual Indian Country Big Game Auction.” Showcasing big-game hunting and fishing opportunities available on U.S. and Canadian Indian Reservations, the auction will be conducted during the Phoenix International Sportsmen’s Exposition, which runs February 23-26 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.

Coordinated by Hunting The Rez Magazine, the auction will take place on Friday, February 24, from 3p-6p on the show’s main Adventure Theater stage. Auction items are listed online: http://bid.huntingtherez.com/auction.aspx?as=22110

ISE Phoenix will also feature the first-ever Hunting The Rez Pavilion, in which the following North American tribes will spotlight their outdoor opportunities:

* Blackfeet Nation, Browning, MT

* Blood Reserve, Stand Off Alberta, Canada

* Chippewa – Cree, Rocky Boy, MT

* Gros Ventre – Assiniboine, Fort Belknap, MT

* Hualape Game & Fish Dept., Peach Springs, AZ

* Jicarilla Game & Fish Dept., Dulce, NM

* Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, Lower Brule, SD

* Mandan – Hidatsu – Arikara (MHA Nation/Three Affiliated Tribes), New Town, ND

* Pueblo of Acoma, Acoma, NM

* Pueblo of Zuni, Zuni, NM

* Quinault Nation, Taholah, WA

* San Carlos Apache Recreation, San Carlos, AZ

* White Mountain Apache Tribe, Whiteriver, AZ

Jason Belcourt, co-founder and editor of Hunting The Rez Magazine, commented: “Indian country offers vast hunting and fishing opportunities and this auction is a way to showcase what’s available to a very large audience of sports enthusiasts.

“Other expos have featured auctions, but Hunting The Rez’s event is the first where all of the hunting and fishing packages up for bid are exclusively from Indian reservations,” said Belcourt. “Tribes and tribal outfitting businesses will be able to meet with anglers and big-game hunters who may have never hunted or fished on Indian Reservations.”

Another motivation for this special event, says Belcourt, is the amount of misinformation in the hunting community. “Each Tribe has its own laws and regulations for hunting and fishing on their property. Many of the tribes are in the early stages of developing their fish-and-game departments. This auction and the HTR Pavilion is a way to educate the market about what hunting and fishing is available today in Indian Country.”

About International Sportsmen’s Exposition
The International Sportsmen’s Exposition is Arizona’s largest, most-diverse gathering of fishing, hunting and outdoor products and destinations all year,” said John Kirk, ISE’s Director of Communications. “With hundreds of exhibiting companies, free seminars throughout the day every day, free parking, giant Youth Fair plus free entry for youth under 16 and active military, the ISE is also a tremendous family value.”

DETAILS: $15 adult admission. Hours: Thurs-Fri 10:00am – 6:00pm; Sat 10:00am – 6:00pm; Sun 10:00am – 5:00pm.
