Playtech Posts Profits:
Gaming software developer Playtech recently posted their 2007 first quarter revenues and it seems that the poker business is good for business. The company posted $19.8 million
  in profits so far this year, which is a great jump in comparison to the $17.4 million in the same fiscal period of last year. The revenue dropped 5% from $20.8 million 2006 first quarter result, but revenue from poker rooms is up, keeping the Playtech profits floating upward. The United Kingdom based Playtech is expecting a higher performance for next year, looking for a profit of $88.7 million.

Iowa Casino Expands Poker Offerings
The newly expanded Diamond Jo Casino has more to offer patrons to this Northwood, Iowa gambling spot, with more than 350 machines and around 22,000 square feet of gaming floor space. The total expansion package, which came about a year after the casino opened for business, cost around $20 million - a necessary expense, according to Marketing Director Scott Smith, who pointed out that the players weren’t comfortable in the amount of space available before the expansion. Crowded weekends and standing room only conditions prompted the expansion, which Smith says makes the casino "much more roomy."
