Arthur: I am your king!
Woman: Well, I didn’t vote for you.
Arthur: You don’t vote for kings.
Woman: Well, ‘ow did you become king then?
Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king!
Dennis: Listen, strange women lying about in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
Arthur: Be quiet!
Dennis: Well, you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just ’cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
Arthur: Shut up!
Dennis: I mean, if I went around sayin’ I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me they’d put me away!
Arthur: Shut up! Will you shut up!
Dennis: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system.

Feel like you are being overlooked by the system? That nobody asks for your opinion?
Here’s your chance.
On Feb. 6 at the iCE conference in London, Shahar Attias, chief executive officer of Hybrid Interaction, Ltd., will moderate a panel addressing the likely impact of social gaming on the iGaming industry.
This is YOUR opportunity to affect the discussion and post a question. Shahar will be sure to ask the experts about any topic that interest you and as always, report back with all the answers, tips and pictures from the panel and the exhibition.
* How does each panelist’s company utilize social gaming within its overall offering?
* Is social gaming better used as a gateway to un-regulated markets or as a “less-taxed” channel WITHIN regulated markets?
* Considering the fact we all work in a “BIG data” oriented industry, do you apply predictive analytic methodologies to unlock your data as a revenue source? If yes, which resources and what tools do you use?
* When it comes to player loyalty in social gaming, what is the most effective rewarding strategy?
