The gaming and casino industry recently held their annual conference and expo in Las Vegas. The Global Gaming Expo (G2E) is where the casino industry meets to learn about hot topics in their industry. Most of the casino employees also visit the expo hall to look for new games and other goods for the casinos.
The expo floor is similar to the casino floor itself. Slot machines are the games that dominate the expo floor at G2E. While there are plenty of table games on display at G2E, nothing matches the sheer number of slot machines. The expo even has a section where casinos try new boozes and coffees to offer guests.
I look for games that you’ll likely see in casinos soon when I visit the G2E expo. The new slot machines from G2E that have the best chance of making it to your favorite casino are often the big name brands.
Next year we should see slot machine games featuring new game themes from Karate Kid, South Park, Mad Max: Fury Road, Madonna, Adam Levine (Maroon 5), The Price Is Right Plinko, MacGyver, Motown, Rocky, and many more.
G2E also highlighted some new slot machine technology and unique themes that may or may not be in casinos on your next visit. Fingers are definitely crossed for the Taco Tuesday slot machine.
Here are 15 or 16 of the best slot machines I saw at the Global Gaming Expo this year. Most of these games should be in casinos next year.
Mad Max: Fury Road
Pac Man (not a slot machine but close enough)
New Versions of Buffalo
