4. SBTech launches mobile-focused Add2Bet feature
SBTech, too, has been hard at work on the mobile innovation front, releasing Add2Bet, a Live Betting option that lets players use the cash out value of an open bet to create a new double, treble or acca by combining it with new selections.
This new features gives players more control over their betting. SBTech also hopes it'll prove popular with the elusive millennial crowd.
3. Pearl River Resort introduces deluxe pool and lounge
Infinity at Golden Moon has recently been completed at Pearl River Resort, adding a resort-style pool and lounge. Guests can enjoy an indoor pool and hot tub, infinity pool, a bar with large-screen TVs and other luxurious amenities such as USB charging stations. (We're wondering where those are in relation to the water.)

2. IGT awards over $22 million in jackpots in September
The insanely popular Wheel of Fortune, Powerbucks and Megabucks slots paid out to nine lucky winners across the U.S. and Canada in September, IGT's largest single-month slots payout of 2017.
If that's just one month, we'd like to see what the total payouts have been for the whole year.
1. Chris Ferguson wins sixth bracelet at WSOPE
Poker pro/villain Chris Ferguson has snagged his sixth bracelet during the World Series of Poker Europe, putting him at No. 9 on the all-time bracelet list. This, of course, means he has a chance at this year's WSOP Poker Player of the Year award – a situation rife with controversy, as the poker world hasn't yet forgotten his involvement with Full Tilt Poker.
We'll just have to wait and see where the chips fall.
Chris Ferguson wins Event 7: €1,650 PLO 8 or Better, winning €39,289 and his 6th WSOP bracelet. Full recap posted shortly pic.twitter.com/r0ZpSI52Pb— WSOP (@WSOP) November 2, 2017
