Bob and I get a return visit from long time slot director Buddy Frank, and this was taped immediately after the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) show, the biggest casino industry trade show of the year. We spend a lot of time talking about the new things we saw. Although there were a few somewhat interesting new video poker games presented, more interesting were the new bar-top boxes put out by IGT, Aristocrat, and Scientific Games. There is one feature of the SG box that will lead many of our listeners to avoid these machines whenever possible.
