I think, one way or another, we're all affected.

Hart said declines in gaming revenues in regional markets were sharper than expected>>

Meaning Indian casinos are stealing business
from each other as more and more of them
open. The harsh winter also kept players away.
Worst winter I've ever seen, there was no let
up, it's snowing right now.

Leased slots are somewhat like a Ponzi scheme.
There has to be a point where the number of
machines leased aren't getting played enough
because the player market is finite. Looks like
they reached that point.
It does not suck to be me.

I looked at IGT Careers a few weeks back and only saw 9 openings. I guess this explains it more. :(

Hope no one here was affected.

I think all the aspiring game inventors on the forum just saw their hopes go down further, for those casting their net in the video gaming market.

Bally's must be breathing down their neck. They are no longer the big gorilla (they're still an ape) with Bally's purchase of SHFL.

And don't forget NanoTech Gaming Labs headed by Ahigh!

Not if I have anything to say about it. I may be in a position to compete with the big boys in the very near future and we're definitely going to be looking for content. Stay tuned for updates; this is a fluid situation over the next 4-6 weeks.
