Bestjackpots.com Heralds End to Internet Clutter

23 June 2004

Anyone who has ever used an internet search engine seeking information about casinos they plan to visit knows how annoying it is to be bombarded with pop-up advertising from online casinos.

The vast majority of people who enjoy recreational casino gambling have no interest whatsoever in gambling online, which, for the most part, is illegal, unlicensed and unregulated. They enjoy the excitement, dining, entertainment and hotel amenities that only legitimate gaming properties can deliver.

BestJackpots, a casino-oriented Website that has been adamant in its mission to promote "brick and mortar" casinos while rejecting all advertising from online casino operations, may finally be reaping its just reward.

In late April, many search engines, including MSN, Yahoo and Ask Jeeves, among others, enacted policies to stop running ads for online casinos. Others, including Google and AOL, are probably in line to follow suit with similar action.

Meanwhile, BestJackpots' profile on the internet is increasing now that online casino pop-ups have been banished. That's good news for real casino fans. BestJackpots is a terrific one-stop internet information treasure trove.

The site maintains up-to-date information from casinos nationwide on progressive jackpots, tournaments, promotions, giveaways and many more of the things casino fans like to know when planning vacations and overnight trips.

Individual casino Websites will tell you a lot about the property and generalities about what's going on, but BestJackpots gets down to specifics with information that's updated on a daily basis.

BestJackpots, which is owned and operated by experienced casino industry professionals, eliminates the fluff and emphasizes the nitty-gritty of what casino fans want to know. The site is attractive and very easy to navigate.

Approaching its two-year anniversary, BestJackpots has forged relationships with many of the top casino operators nationwide. Now that its position is strengthened, its status as a valuable information source for players and casinos alike will be enhanced. Visit at www.BestJackpots.com.
