Board games can be quite captivating once you enter their magical realm. Some of them are actually very old, dating back to 5,000 BC, which confirms the fact that every human is a homo ludens — a human who plays games.

With the proliferation of gambling that’s taking place in Europe, much focus has been placed on the potential for problem gambling issues.

With Sweden’s online gambling industry currently growing at a ridiculous pace over the past three years, gambling regulator Spelinspektionen means business when it comes to addressing potential problem gambling issues. Just recently, the regulator handed down fines for self-exclusion violations to one of the biggest operators Genesis...

I'm a huge fan of feel good type stories.

We're so often inundated with the downfalls of the industry that it can be easy to miss the things that make us love this industry too. Seeing an indie publisher not only break a huge milestone, but pay their fortune forward to the tune of $500,000 in charity donation is something that makes me smile.
