Rare photos!? I saw this thing pulling into LAS the other day! I wish I would have snapped it now.

OTOH, it looked tacky as hell. Glad to see not everyone is picking this up.

They are going to be in trouble sooner or later for having in flight gambling over Utah too.

Hmmm, this quote from the article interests me...

Quote:
"The more we did our due diligence, the more we became uncomfortable with displaying the brand," Harrison said.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't due diligence supposed to be done *prior* to entering (or effecting) an arrangement or relationship? It sounds to me like Bodog threw some nice cash in their face and G4 went barreling ahead without really doing any real research.

As for Bodog, I don't think that plane wraps would be that effective of a campaign. I know it sounds cliche and everything, but I just don't think that these wraps would get maximum eye time--there are other advertising and marketing initiatives out there that this money could've been used for--and it seems that a chunk of it may be, depending on how much G4 will be returning.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

I doubt they'd keep playing the $1 game unless it was a major problem. Such $1 type games are played all over the U.S. It's no different than a raffle.

I flew one out to Las Vegas on Sunday and was rather confused as to what the hell landed at Mid America Airport. I stood outside and squinted real hard at night as the plane pulled up to the gate to see what it was. It was very hard to tell from inside the airport or outside the terminal what was on the side of the plane.

I agree, mainly because a lot of their markets have evening arrival/departures where you can't really see the side of the plane. The only place they're really being seen, in concert with my previous comment, is at Las Vegas airport during the day when they're taxiing to and from the gates.



Eternal darkness we all should dread. It's hard to party when you're dead.

Wish I was at IFP to grab one of them!  mad 

Timing is everything.

Interesting article, didn't G4 look into this beforehand? They didn't realize that online gaming is illegal in the US. Yep those pics are going to be very rare now.

Well techinically you are paying a dollar to win money, so I think it's considered gambling, where as a raffle you pay a dollar or whatever to win a prize.

I would of thought so.

That's very short run. For how long the casino ad were on the first plane? Any word when they will repaint the planes? Takes few days or weeks, I would imagine.
