Every year the casino industry from all over the country gathers in Las Vegas to purchase new products for their casinos at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E). Buyers for the casinos look for everything from new games to the beverages they serve while you’re playing and the chairs you’ll sit on. The show is quite impressive and full of things we don’t normally think about casinos shopping for.
There’s really a lot to cover at the expo but there’s one major product that occupies about half the floor space at G2E. Of course, I’m talking about slot machines. The majority of the casino floor is occupied by slot machines so it makes sense the sales floor at the expo would be.
Slot machines on display come in all shapes, sizes, and themes at G2E. However, the big name themes are the games that you’ll usually notice first. Here’s a look at 11 of the slot machines with familiar titles that you can expect to see in casinos within the next year.
