PLAYSTUDIOS, a game development company focusing on free-to-play casino games, today announced that its myVEGAS mobile app achieved the most popular download ranking in the Casino Games category, for both phone and tablet devices, across all three major app stores – iTunes for iOS, Google Play for Android, and Amazon for Kindle Fire. Additionally, PLAYSTUDIOS is launching two new feature-rich games – one for Facebook and one for Mobile. As with all of the other myVEGAS Games, loyal players can get valuable, real world rewards from some of the hottest spots in Las Vegas, like Bellagio, ARIA, MGM Grand, Wolfgang Puck, Cirque du Soleil, and House of Blues.

“We are thrilled to see our myVEGAS app hit and hold the top download spot in the major three app stores, simultaneously. It’s a great validation of our efforts as we continually strive to provide our players with the most unique and entertaining casino-style experiences available – whether they are enjoying our games on their favorite mobile device, or on Facebook,” said Andrew Pascal, founder, president and chief executive officer of PLAYSTUDIOS. “We expect to build on this great momentum,” he continued, “with the release of our new games, Sheerluck Hound for Facebook and Around the World in 80 Plays for mobile. These new titles demonstrate our evolution as a game studio. They have wonderful depth of play and great visual style. They just might be our best work yet.”

In The Misadventures of Sheerluck Hound, join Sheerluck and his trusty companion, Doctor Wheaton, as they search high and low through Old Town London in hot purrrrrrr-suit of the villainous Professor Meowiarti – Sheerluck’s nemesis. Play the game and make your way through London’s furry underbelly to solve the mystery. Spin the reels, search for hidden objects, and take notes along the way. You’ll need them to help Sheerluck and Wheaton collar the canine criminals and crack the case wide open!

Around the World earns the distinction of being PLAYSTUDIOS first mobile game to feature a hidden object bonus. Now, myVEGAS mobile players can experience a depth of play previously reserved for the company’s popular web games. Around the World in 80 Plays is a traditional reel slot game, inspired by the works of Jules Verne. During the course of the game, players visit five exotic locations, search for hidden objects, win chips, and accumulate achievements. A sizable prize awaits those who can make it around the world and back in just 80 spins!

myVEGAS is free to download and play. It is the only casino app that gives players a chance to get real world rewards from an exclusive collection of travel, leisure, and entertainment brands.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal...
Video experiences should be unique and exciting! But that doesn’t mean you need to patch all the pieces yourself. Users demand rich and engaging experiences and new ways to connect with you. But creating robust video applications at scale can be complicated, time-consuming and expensive. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Zohar Babin, Vice President of Platform, Ecosystem and Community at Kaltura, discussed how VPaaS enables you to move fast, creating scalable video experiences that reach your aud...
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office. Amazon is extending its reach by building on its dominant Cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strategy, recently announced Replenishment Services, the Echo/Alexa voice recognition control platform, the 6-7 strategic...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service?

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for s...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
