Las Vegas – The Gaming Standards Association recently held its first two Certified G2S Engineer Program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, graduating 15 engineers. Now, GSA will present „An Introduction to the Certified G2S Engineer Program“ during the upcoming Global Gaming Expo.

The seminar takes place November 14 at the Las Vegas Convention Center; Room – N219. Presenting are Chuck Berg, GSA Affiliate Professor of Gaming Technology at the UNLV International Gaming Institute and Russ Ristine, Vice President of Radical Blue Gaming, Inc.

The seminar will give an overview of the three-week Certified G2S Engineer Program. The session begins with a presentation on GSA‘s Game-to-System (G2S) protocol and its machine and communication models. That is followed by a live demonstration of a working G2S-compliant EGM, including a demonstration of the EGM discovery process, and by monetary transactions and game play activities that generate events and meter updates of interest to a number of different back-office system hosts.

Jointly developed by UNLV and GSA, the Certified G2S Engineer Program is part of a comprehensive training and certification program designed to accelerate the implementation and adoption of GSA standards throughout the gaming industry. The program is targeted at development engineers, quality assurance and compliance test engineers, engineering managers, and operations engineers working for game and systems equipment manufacturers, casino properties, regulators, and independent labs.
