GPWA Times Magazine - Fifth Anniversary Issue Cover

21 is a very nice number. In blackjack, of course, it's a natural. In New York it's a legendary watering hole. In many parts of the world it's how old you have to be be to drink or gamble - It signifies that you've come of age. And in publishig, to be bringing out the 21st issue of a magazine - any magazine - is an absolute rarity. But here it is - the 21st GPWA Times Magazine - and by the way, it's also our 5th Anniversay Issue as well!

For our cover story, Vin Narayanan spoke with five industry heavy hitters to get their take on the fallout from Black Friday along with their predictions on where the U.S. is likely to go from here. Weighing in are Poker Players Alliance Executive Director John Pappas, Foxwoods Development Executive Director of Business Development Anshu Kalhan, California attorney and industry legal expert Martin Owens, Shuffle Master CSO Lou Castle and Innovation Group COO Kimberly Arnold.
