The 2019 Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas is just around the corner. The Expo, presented by the American Gaming Association bills itself as the international gaming trade show and conference “by the industry and for the industry”.
It is set to happen from October 14th to the 17th and will include both an educational component as well as a chance for industry leaders to show their wares.
G2E as it is known is the biggest gathering of its kind in North America, bringing commercial, global and tribal gaming professionals together under one roof.
It is here where industry insiders get first crack at the newest products and most innovative technologies that will eventually become mainstream in a casino or betting app near you.
One such technology is being put forth by Scientific Games Corporation who are going to be showcasing what they call “the future of sports betting”.
The feature product they are sharing is their redesigned OpenSports platform which is a complete suite of products all in one. It helps to create a phenomenal sports gambling experience for bettors while using some of the best technology in the industry to power their offering.
