What is PlayTexas?
PlayTexas is an affiliate news organization. We are part of a network of sites owned by Catena Media, an international publicly-traded firm that covers gambling on four continents. Catena also owns other state-specific sites, including for Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada, New Jersey, and Ohio (among others).
Catena Media and PlayTexas are only interested in legal gambling options. While Texans have many gambling choices available to them right now, some of them exist in a legal limbo or are otherwise flatly illegal. Therefore you won’t find any information about gambling options of uncertain legality here. We also have no interest in covering offshore gambling sites that do not comply with US or state law.
We are an affiliate site along with being a news organization. That means you may see advertising from prominent gambling companies on our pages from time to time. These companies are our valued partners, but none of them maintain any kind of editorial control over the direction of our reporting or our content. We do not accept any paid advertisements and do not allow guest posting.
Our Mission Statement
PlayTexas covers the gambling industry and scene in Texas in an accurate and unbiased manner. Our reporting is strictly fact-based. We rarely offer our opinions or interpretations of the events as they happen, as those kinds of judgments are best left to readers.
We also seek to answer questions that Texans might have about legal gambling options and efforts to expand them. Across the country, gambling has been growing in visibility over the past few years. As a result, there is plenty of online supposition and guesswork regarding what is legal and what is not. If a visit to PlayTexas clears up any confusion you might be experiencing about gambling in the Lone Star State, we’ve done our job.
Finally, we seek to present you with the best bonus offers at legal online gambling sites. Many of our offers are exclusive to the Catena Media network.
Our Writing Process
When it comes to our writing process, our first step is to seek out primary sources for information about what is happening with various aspects of gambling in Texas. We receive notices, information, and comments from lawmakers, public officials, and relevant employees at the various gambling venues around the state. We also corroborate our information with government reports and court documents.
Anything we write is then subject to editing and review. We verify each fact, link, and statement for accuracy as well as grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Finally, the managing editor of PlayTexas looks through each story to provide further fact-checking and advice about any other necessary revisions.
Through that much review, it is quite rare for us to include any mistakes in our reporting. However, it does happen from time to time, and we have no interest in providing inaccurate information. Therefore, the third step in our process belongs to you. If you see something that doesn’t look correct, we absolutely want to hear from you about it. Our accuracy is paramount, and our egos are strong enough to handle correcting a mistake every now and again.
