A look back at G2E 2019.
by Buddy Frank

Without a doubt, the opening question when any two gaming pros gather for the next few weeks will be: “What did you think about G2E?” My go-to answer about this year’s edition is a single line: it was the best show in years.

But that’s the shorthand version. If you have time to mull over lunch, here’s a bit more detail:

License deals – Brand names were again everywhere, but few, if any, were new. The jury is still out on how long the last big one, James Bond, will last, but overall brands haven’t really been that strong for several years, Wheel of Fortune notwithstanding. Due to their high cost, many branded slots are released in a WAP format with higher fees based on a percentage of coin in. Yet today, most slot directors seem to prefer the less expensive lease model of fee per day. Who can argue with the amazing success of “88 Fortunes,” “Lightning Links,” or “Dragon Links”? Those, and many more, from Buffalo to Dancing Drums, have become major hits with no superstars attached. This trend looks here to stay; the Las Vegas Strip may be the only exception. However, I did hear some grumbling that one or two vendors were boosting the prices on their non-brand leased games, so don’t be surprised if there is some future operator pushback even on those hits.

Best of Show
Here's a subjective view of the best games that were on offer last month at the Global Gaming Expo.
by Frank Legato

For most of the year, this space consists of articles written in standard, objective news style. However, in the wake of the annual Global Gaming Expo, I like to use one column to offer my purely subjective, first-person take on what I considered to be the best slot games launched at G2E.

Mind you, this is by no means to say certain games are better, will earn more, or will outscore other games in terms of win-per-unit or other measurements. These are simply opinions, based on 35 years of writing about slot machines, on what I considered the standout offerings at G2E.

Branding of games may always be either 'trendy' or not. Either way, the casino managers and the general public know that such ''name brands' come with marketing fees paid by the PLAYERS irrespective of the casino managers having to first front the money to the brand name owners. Most players would rather play Plain Vanilla than play Trendy Name at a lower return.

Casinos seem to be at the center of any business news press release simply few other industries are even close to booming.

20.
