SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 31 -- GSN, the network for games, today announced the first-ever annual awards show to celebrate the very best casino players, casino entertainers and casino-related television and movies. The GSN CASINO AWARDS will be broadcast live from Las Vegas in December 2005 on GSN in the U.S. and Canada, and will be licensed to other networks internationally.

We will be producing and televising more shows than ever from Las Vegas, including new interactive game shows, poker shows, blackjack tournaments, physical competitions and reality shows."

To date, GSN has already produced many of its programs in Vegas, including tournament shows such as WORLD SERIES OF BLACKJACK 2005, POKER ROYALE: THE WPPA CHAMPIONSHIPS, POKER ROYALE: BATTLE OF THE SEXES, the game show NATIONAL LAMPOON'S FUNNY MONEY and the reality show VEGAS WEDDINGS UNVEILED.

GSN CASINO AWARDS will recognize the top men and women in dozens of categories, including the following:

Best Professional Poker Player / Best Celebrity Poker Player

Best Professional Blackjack Player / Best Celebrity Blackjack Player

Performers will be eligible if they performed at a casino showroom or nightclub.

GSN CASINO AWARDS is in the pre-production phase at the network and further information about Las Vegas location, promotional partners, international partners, the casino board and voting procedures will be announced at a later date. The show will honor the best in the business during the calendar year of January through December 2005.
