Global Gaming Expo
The immediate results of the Supreme Court ruling legalizing sports betting will be in the spotlight as the industry gathers in Las Vegas for the 17th annual Global Gaming Expo (G2E), the largest gathering of global, commercial and tribal casino gaming professionals in North America. The event features 26,000 attendees and will have more than 300 exhibitors.
Whether traveling to a gaming destination like Las Vegas, or visiting your local casino, innovations being unveiled will soon be in front of consumers nationwide. During G2E, top suppliers in the casino business will unveil their latest products and technologies in gaming and sports betting including:
• Exhibitors rolling out new sports betting technologies and cashless ways to gamble through a mobile wallet.
• How technological breakthroughs in speech recognition (Siri & Cortana), pattern recognition (self-driving cars) and genomics (DNA sequencing), are on the verge of disrupting the sports betting sector.
• The continued use of artificial intelligence (A.I) and online wagering data to promote responsible gaming.
• This year’s G2E will host its first-ever Innovation Incubator, a Shark Tank-style scenario where students and start-ups will pitch their best business ideas in gaming to stars of CNBC’s Shark Tank, as well as Sprout CEO Cindy Eckert Whitehead.
Since the Supreme Court ruling in May legalizing sports betting, the gaming industry has mobilized to take advantage of this new offering, with five states already offering full-scale sports betting, and several more states and new technologies on the horizon.
This year’s G2E will feature the first-ever Sports Betting Symposium, offering unparalleled insights into the new frontier of gaming: legalized sports betting. Attendees will hear from sports betting experts and global business leaders, and see firsthand innovative solutions being used to enable a thriving, legal sports betting market in the U.S.
The success of the commercial casino industry is at an all-time high, having surpassed $40 billion in revenue for the first time last year. Innovations in the gaming sector continue to attract new gaming enthusiasts, solidifying the casino industry’s role as a mainstream form of entertainment
