Why Public Gaming International Magazine is grabbing the attention and

readership of the industry...

The gaming industry is at a crossroads. Opportunities abound to expand the types of

games and methods of distribution. The mission of Public Gaming International

Magazine is to turn this potential into reality. As ardent advocates for progressive change,

we encourage the leaders of the industry to be bold and stretch to overcome obstacles

to growth. We also encourage the leaders of the industry to be receptive to the wealth of

ideas and creativity coming out of the commercial suppliers to the industry. The longterm

success of the industry depends on a healthy and collaborative relationship between

operators and suppliers. Public Gaming Research Institute is dedicated to fostering a

collaborative relationship between gaming operators, commercial suppliers, and also

legislators, regulators, and other shapers of public policy.

Public Gaming Research Institute was founded in 1971 to advocate for the interests of

government-sponsored gaming. Our mission continues to be to help the lotteries and

government-sponsored gaming benefit by the changes that are sweeping the industry. We

do this by delivering editorial and analyses that address the challenging issues of the day

in a straightforward way, giving a voice to the industry leaders by way of cutting edge

interviews, and encouraging an open dialogue about provocative topics. Our editorial

does focus on issues of public policy, but our primary mission is to help the lottery and

gaming operator to grow and prosper.

We encourage our readers to appreciate that it is the innovative products, strategies, and

solutions provided by the commercial gaming community which ultimately drives growth

and enables operators to succeed. We look to our commercial supporters to step into the

role of “thought leader”, to help our constituents understand how new games, new media

and distribution channels provide an extraordinary foundation for growth. Public

Gaming International Magazine endeavors to be your best media partner and advocate

for the gaming industry. In addition to the print magazine, our website, e-newsletters,

and conferences work hard to get attention for our advertisers and supporters. They also

work well together, encouraging the reader to enjoy and benefit from all of Public

Gaming’s different resources.

We need your support and depend upon it and are dedicated to

working hard to earn it. I welcome your feedback. Please feel free to e-mail

Report”, our weekly electronic newsletter.
