With the future of online gaming in the United States set to dominate proceedings at next month’s Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas, GTECH G2 is offering U.S. gaming operators the chance to win something totally unique-the free installation of an online play‐for‐fun poker platform, including Web site design and a tailored services package.

GTECH G2, a full service provider to the iGaming and sports betting industry, will host a poker tournament at G2E, with the winning operating company receiving a free iGaming system that includes the poker client, bespoke portal design, full installation and a tailored package of services.

Entry is now open at www.gtechg2.com and employees from any licensed U.S. commercial and tribal casino can register and represent their company in this unique challenge. The first 83 players to register are guaranteed a seat and each contestant will be given $5,000 of free play poker chips. The remaining seats will be drawn live on the SPIELO International booth, where GTECH G2 and SPIELO International will be presenting their integrated gaming offering. All players must register on the Web site before September 25th.

The action will be contested through a specially created tournament on the GTECH G2 Poker product and played in nine sessions of 30‐minute hellcat/turbo games, beginning at 11:00 (local time) on October 2nd, the opening day of G2E. Two semi‐finals, each with a very special guest, will take place on Wednesday, October 3, before the grand final later in the day where the industry’s ultimate poker player will be crowned.

“Never before has there been an opportunity for operators to enter a competition like this,” said Walter Bugno, president and CEO of GTECH G2 and SPIELO International. “We are closer than ever to regulated iGaming in the U.S. and this competition provides the most unique of opportunities for employees to make the difference at their organization by helping to secure their company’s entry into the world of iGaming for free.”
