FuturelogicCasino gaming solutions supplier, FutureLogic, has announced today it will showcase its PromoNet couponing solution and TableXchange device at this year’s Latin America’s gaming trade exhibition: SAGSE Expo and Congress.

The Expo, which will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 9-11 November, will be Future Logic’s forth year showcasing its gaming technology at the event.

As in past shows, it will be exhibiting at the Suzo-Happ specially designed booth which will include the live real-time presentation of its range of thermal printers and the PromoNet promotional couponing solution.

With a massive smile on his face, Vice President of International Markets, John Edmunds, said: “SAGSE has been a great show for FutureLogic and we are confident the region will continue to expand in 2012. We seek to be the preeminent supplier of innovative printing and couponing solutions servicing the Latin American market.”

 

AristocratAnother gaming solutions provider – Aristocrat Technologies – also had an announcement to be proud of today. Pride may be one of the seven deadly sins, but did they care? No way. In a statement by the company, it smugly proclaimed it has broken into the Las Vegas pub market for the first time.

Aristocrat has replaced an existing system at Sago’s Baja Tavern and Lounge in Las Vegas with its Oasis 360 system, which will monitor all of the venue’s machines.

Sago’s Baja Tavern and Lounge owner, Jason Godfrey, said: “We promise to take care of our players like old Vegas used to, and we wanted to be absolutely certain we had a system that would help us fulfill on that promise. After looking at several systems from several companies, it’s clear that system is Aristocrat’s Oasis 360.”

Aristocrat Vice President for Systems Sales & Marketing, Kelly Shaw, said: “This has been an incredible year for Aristocrat’s Oasis 360 system, as we have continued our absolute dominance in North America. We are very happy to have broken into this new marketplace, and I’m confident this is going to be a great partnership.”

After landing an online gaming deal in US last month – Aristocrat just loves to tell us how its Oasis 360 is the most widely installed system in North America, which currently monitors devices at over 265 casinos.

 

Gaming Standards AssociationSeen as though other gaming businesses were announcing how great they are left, right and centre today, international trade association – the Gaming Standards Association (GSA) – thought it’d jump on the bandwagon and glean some respect from the world. Naming itself as “the world’s leading standards-setting organisation for the gaming industry” the GSA told everyone how it’s riding a wave of success as its standards are continuing to be deployed globally.

A press release added it is “clearly setting a distinguishing line of competitive advantage between those implementing GSA standards and those who are not.” Nothing like blowing your own trumpet.

But what proof do they have of this? Well, it added that in Missouri, in the US, state regulators are requiring GSA’s GAT 3.5 standard for every slot supplier operating in the state. And it doesn’t stop there. GSA added that in Europe, Italy’s infamous Amministrazione Autonoma dei Monopoli di Stato (AAMS) and SOGEI are requiring GSA’s S2S standard to enable cross ticketing. Impressive.

GSA President, Peter DeRaedt, said: “GSA standards are the future of gaming, as this wave of deployment clearly shows. Every aspect of the industry, on every continent, is embracing GSA standards, and we invite all companies to join GSA, to join those who are leading the industry to a positive new future.”

 

And don’t forget that the Totally Gaming Awards nominations close today so for those who still haven’t cast their vote; hurry the hell up!
