Newsletter | May 2024

A Note From the Product Director...

Hello Friends and Partners,

Welcome to our inaugural newsletter! Through the year, we will be rolling out a number of new initiatives aimed at tightening the communication between playAWARDS and you, our partners. This newsletter represents just one such component of that effort.

As I write you, I'm reflecting back on Q1. It was a productive quarter for playAWARDS and our loyalty program. In March, we hosted a playAWARDS Bootcamp in Las Vegas for game developers to strengthen their collaboration with us and educate new program managers on the in's and out's of loyalty. Everyone found it immensely valuable! We also made great progress in Q1 on the integration of our new Loyalty Center in Tetris, POP Slots, and myVEGAS Slots, and we couldn't be prouder of the new experience we'll be bringing players of those games. (For more on the capabilities of the loyalty center, see below.)

Finally, as you digest the materials we're providing here, don't hesitate to reach out to me with any reactions or feedback you may have! As with everything we do, we're always looking to improve and bring more value to you and your business.

Stay Loyal,

Tim Delson

playAWARDS Product Director
