NEWARK, NEW JERSEY and PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/09/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this release.
partypoker is turning its poker room into a battleground for fans of sports and live stage entertainment. Thanks to the announced partnership with Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center the site will, through a new promotion called the Dream Seat Series, offer players the chance to win regular, courtside and VIP box seats to every New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia 76ers home game. Players can also compete for premium seats at concerts like the upcoming Jay Z concert at the Prudential Center on January 22. At regular intervals players will also be able to win the chance to bring a friend on a road trip with the teams. Down the road, further poker, sports and live entertainment experiences will be added to the Dream Seat Series' prize roster.
The Dream Seat Series on http://nj.partypoker.com targets new and regular players alike and offers plenty of chances for people of all levels to get involved. New players who register and make a new deposit will automatically be awarded their first shots at nailing some of the best seats in the house. Regular players can acquire Dream Seat Series tickets just by playing frequently, by participating in daily freerolls and $1 qualifiers - or by topping up their accounts.
"The Dream Seat Series is a natural extension of the partypoker experience," said Team partypoker's Founding Father and Poker Hall of Fame member Mike Sexton. "The sensation of pulling off a bluff and the feeling when your team scores in overtime are two sides of the same coin. We believe the Dream Seat Series adds an additional dimension of thrill to our offering that will appeal to a wide range of people who like a good game regardless of whether they're watching it or playing in it".
Players and fans who think they have some of that Devil's luck can go to http://nj.partypoker.com/devils to learn more about the Dream Seat Series Hockey Night. Those who prefer to lace up and test if they can play poker above the rim should head over to http://nj.partypoker.com/sixers to read up on Basketball Night and those to whom aces are music to their ears, can take the first steps towards rocking to Jay Z in a VIP booth at http://nj.partypoker.com/partynight.
The partypoker partnership will be immediately visible with simultaneous "arena takeovers" on January 11, 2014 in both the Prudential Center, when the Devils host the Florida Panthers at 7:00 p.m., and the Wells Fargo Center, as the Sixers take on the New York Knicks at 7:30 p.m. This follows a press conference and photo opportunity featuring Norbert Teufelberger, CEO of bwin.party digital entertainment, Scott O'Neil, CEO of the Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center, partypoker's Mike Sexton and players and legends from the sports franchises TODAY on January 9. In addition to a number of the aforementioned advertising and promotional elements being in place, fans will have the opportunity to sign-up and sample partypoker at stations throughout the arenas and receive exclusive offers.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
