    G2E 2018 Day 4
    This page is reserved for G2E Day 4 Postings.

    It's the final day and were inside the SG booth before the show starts for some exclusive behind the scenes and the opportunity to meet some of the game designers.

    SG has really stepped up their game. I can kind of see why they want to keep these ideas from getting out.

    Today being the last day most people have seen what the show has to offer. I'm just getting a few more pictures and retaking some that did not turn out.

    I will be posting more updates as the day continues.

    Thanks for the coverage slot mole! Glad to see SG let you get some pictures. I can't defend them. There is no excuse for shutting out slot fans who use your products. This company has really migrated away from the great slot company they were a few years back. In 2015 when we were at G2E they encouraged us to compare and give thoughts about what we saw at the show. I know Shamus was at that show and I believe you were in the group too. Those kind of things encourage the slotting hobby and give them good feedback and encourage good customer relations. Unfortunately it seems they are going in a different direction. I hope they correct the ship. Thanks again for putting in the time and thanks Shamus too for making videos from the content.

    Hi kmc7:

    You may recognize these two young men from the site:



    There is even a VegasLowRoller, Rexx, and Evoni photo taken by Slot Mole.

    This one was yesterday:



    I can't get them up fast enough … Slot Mole is so prolific!

    Here was a fun night for Slot Mole … his first LIVE broadcast on my site.



    It was a whirlwind, and I'm sure in was quite a rush to do all this stuff!

    Does anyone from this site know a guy named Warren?



    /\/\/\/\ the Shamus /\/\/\/\

    Thanks for your positive feedback. The Shamus was not able to attend this years show (all though he really wanted to). I did go on his behalf and was able to finally gain access to the SG booth. Once we got back there you can kind of see why SG has made this decision. They have some "out-of-this-world" games and technologies to showcase this year. This years show-stopper was indeed the new James Bond 007 Live and Let Die with the moving screen. SG wouldn't even allow us to film this. But as an exclusive Slot Fanatics member you can visit our Facebook Group Page for a behind-the-scenes look at this stunning innovation.
    I hope you enjoy the posts, and check back soon when i will be adding some videos. Thanks and take care. SM
