In this week’s Green Felt Journal, I consider what I found on the G2E expo floor:
It was clear that the big question asked last year at the expo—how to appeal to a new generation of gamblers—has not been fully answered, but we got several tantalizing glimpses of the future.
I think there is a desire and need for new kinds of games. Of course slot machines still make billions each year, but past changes in gambling have shown that all that can change. People didn’t stop playing faro or start playing slots overnight. Is “social” or “skill” going to replace slots next year? No. In twenty years? It’s possibly that something will.
