Playing slot machines is easy. Owning or managing commercial or tribal gaming operations that provide casino services can be complex. So an event called Global Gaming Expo (G2E) features everything from new colorful slot machines in a range if cabinet styles to software to track money and gamblers’ activities and provide programs for “responsible gambling”.

Seminars discuss the latest trends such as cashless gambling, more sophisticated electronic games, government regulations, worldwide gaming issues and so on. And of course, attendees at G2E all bring masks, yet seem to recognize friends in the industry even with the masks.

Global Gaming Expo was a virtual event last year, but returned to the The Venetian Resort and Venetian Expo October 4-7. Educational opportunities at the event included topics such as “Beyond Promotional Mailers: Marketing to the Next Generation of Gaming Customers, “Moving the Money: Digital Payments Myths, Misconceptions, and Opportunities”, “iGaming: Is the Opportunity Real? What’s the Long-Term Outlook?” and “Financial Crimes: Risks Related to Online Casinos and Sportsbooks.”

Publications available to attendees weren’t displayed, as in the past, in huge magazine racks; QR codes were listed on a poster and if an attendee wanted a publication, the attendee just took a photo of the code and got the online magazine later. In addition, at Global Gaming Expo, aisles that once were carpeted are carpeted no more.

I attended G2E last week and although I didn’t get into the complexities of gaming ownership, I did attend the Expo and here is a video from the show:

  1. Thanks, again, for providing insight into the gaming world from the developer/manufacturer/purchaser point of view! How very complicated machines are…I, too, just like pressing a button and watching the screen hoping for the sound of clinking and pictures of coins falling. The lovely scenes, stories and music on slots machines all add to the enjoyment of gambling and I’m happy someone else has to fix them.

  2. Fantastically elucidating coverage, Diane! Enjoyed your video and explanations. Thanks for sharing your observations.
