The House Edge Story
This isn’t a story of a new invention on the back of a napkin. We weren’t college roommates or childhood friends that started an agency together.
We spent 25+ combined years working for casinos and entertainment properties. When casino management changed or switched focus, there was the need for a new set of support staff. As vendors would come to our properties and pitch services the same deficiencies became clear.
Most agencies do not understand casino marketing. Marketing yogurt or a car dealership doesn’t prepare you for our industry. Casinos are made up of unique elements… We were exhausted from explaining things like theo, coin in and why free-play was not actually free.
Occasionally we would find an agency that did have a background in gaming. Yet, they rarely embraced the power of digital tools.
In 2011 we launched House Edge Digital (under a previous name). Our sole purpose is to leverage technology to earn your casino more profit.
House Edge is a certified Google Marketing Partner, and an official Facebook Application developer.
We are casino marketers. We are technology experts.
