PLAYSTUDIOS, a game development company focusing on free-to-play
casino games, today announced that its myVEGAS mobile app achieved the
most popular download ranking in the Casino Games category, for both
phone and tablet devices, across all three major app stores – iTunes for
iOS, Google Play for Android, and Amazon for Kindle Fire. Additionally, PLAYSTUDIOS
is launching two new feature-rich games – one for Facebook and one for
Mobile. As with all of the other myVEGAS Games, loyal players can get
valuable, real world rewards from some of the hottest spots in Las
Vegas, like Bellagio, ARIA, MGM Grand, Wolfgang Puck, Cirque du Soleil,
and House of Blues.
“We are thrilled to see our myVEGAS app hit and hold the top download
spot in the major three app stores, simultaneously. It’s a great
validation of our efforts as we continually strive to provide our
players with the most unique and entertaining casino-style experiences
available – whether they are enjoying our games on their favorite mobile
device, or on Facebook,” said Andrew Pascal, founder, president and
chief executive officer of PLAYSTUDIOS. “We expect to build on
this great momentum,” he continued, “with the release of our new games, Sheerluck
Hound for Facebook and Around the World in 80 Plays for
mobile. These new titles demonstrate our evolution as a game studio.
They have wonderful depth of play and great visual style. They just
might be our best work yet.”
In The Misadventures of Sheerluck Hound, join Sheerluck and his
trusty companion, Doctor Wheaton, as they search high and low through
Old Town London in hot purrrrrrr-suit of the villainous Professor
Meowiarti – Sheerluck’s nemesis. Play the game and make your way through
London’s furry underbelly to solve the mystery. Spin the reels, search
for hidden objects, and take notes along the way. You’ll need them to
help Sheerluck and Wheaton collar the canine criminals and crack the
case wide open!
Around the World earns the distinction of being PLAYSTUDIOS
first mobile game to feature a hidden object bonus. Now, myVEGAS mobile
players can experience a depth of play previously reserved for the
company’s popular web games. Around the World in 80 Plays is a
traditional reel slot game, inspired by the works of Jules Verne. During
the course of the game, players visit five exotic locations, search for
hidden objects, win chips, and accumulate achievements. A sizable prize
awaits those who can make it around the world and back in just 80 spins!
myVEGAS is free to download and play. It is the only casino app that
gives players a chance to get real world rewards from an exclusive
collection of travel, leisure, and entertainment brands. These rewards
include complimentary hotels stays, meals, shows, nightclub access, and
more. For additional myVEGAS Rewards Program information, please visit: http://www.myvegas.com.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels.
With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
