Holy cow! This is the biggest piece of acquisition news in my opinion in the game industry in a long time. Big acquisitions have been happening for years, but they happen, and then you don’t hear anything about them again. I predict this one will be different. This will mean a lot to the merging of casual and casino gaming. BFG has a huge audience in casual and to get those folks to start playing casino casual will be a coup the game industry as a whole is not expecting—but should be. I have been waiting for this kind of move. Wow, just Wow.
