via Center for Gaming Research: Special Events.

It’s exciting to have two people involved with the industry at this level coming to campus to talk. Roger is one of the major people covering gaming today, and one of the few (if not the only one) who started as a dealer on the casino floor. Rob is going to tell us a little bit about what’s happening with WMS, which is one of the more innovative slot makers.

Of course, both talks will be recorded and podcasted for those who can’t be here. But if you’re on or around campus, definitely stop by.

I don’t have anything scheduled for November because most people in the industry are preparing for G2E, so it’s hard to get someone for that month. Instead, I’m going to track down a few people and interview them at the conference. It should make for some good podcasting.

I still have two slots open for the rest of the year. After reading this article, I’m going to make a run at Stephen Siegel for one of them. We’ll see how that turns out.

Also, checking out the Sun’s website, incredible to say, the “Casino Guide” has finally been changed from the Palms, to MGM Grand. I don’t know how long the Palms was ruling the roost there, but it must have been months.

Happy new year.
