Gambling911.com has announced its October 2011 schedule, which includes visits to Panama City, Panama (home of BetOnline.com) and a meeting with Lock Poker executives and poker pros in London next week. 

“We are very excited to be visiting with two of the industry’s fastest growing brands,” noted Payton O’Brien, Senior Editor of the Gambling911.com website. 

Jennifer Larson, CEO of Lock Poker, will be introducing her professional poker player ambassadors to Gambling911.com.  Ms. Larson has been aggressively recruiting pros in recent months, one of the few sites to have gone on such a mission. 

“These players we hope will develop strong name recognition with the Gambling911.com readership base during these tough times for professional poker players,” O’Brien said. 

In mid-October, Gambling911.com reps head down to Panama City where they will visit the BetOnline.com office complex.  There is little arguing that BOL has fast become one of the most aggressively marketed companies in online sports betting and poker. 

G911 will be present to see their wagering center in action during a brisk NFL Sunday. 

“A lot of our readers want a more intimate look at gambling companies like BetOnline and Lock,” O’Brien expressed.

In November, Gambling911.com treks to sunny Punta Cana, Dominican Republic to cover the Punta Cana Poker Classic.  There they will be meeting with representatives from Bookmaker, DoylesRoom, BetDSI, True Poker and more.

Stay tuned beginning late next week.
