The Carmen Media Group, owner of Belle Rock Gaming's seven online casinos, three online poker rooms and online sportsbook, responded swiftly to the media coverage generated in response to the publication of Global Betting and Gaming Consultant' third annual report.
Media coverage focussed on what is described as a 'gambling frenzy' particularly within the UK, and largely attributed to the growth of online gambling with a corresponding increase in women players.
Carmen Media CEO, Tim Johnson, commented
'We always find GBGC's annual report makes interesting reading. The media response is naturally sensationalist: We can certainly confirm that there is increased interest in online gaming as an entertaining leisure pastime, and that many of our customers - and interestingly our most successful winners - are women.
'What was not highlighted by the media, and in my view needs emphasising, is how this report makes clear that clever online gaming operations are facing a very rosy future indeed. Companies like Carmen Media are leading the industry in developing ever more watertight security. We take our position with regard to responsible gaming very seriously, and believe that we offer adults across the world a new, fun and highly entertaining leisure option.
' As the report underlines: those companies that are likely to be winners in the future are those possessing a combination of best marketing and cost effective technology. It just so happens that my company, Carmen Media, is centred on both these skills.'
